The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Another week has come and gone! I've been loving the weather this week and I'm looking forward to spending some time outside with Chris this weekend.   He is bummed that he misses out going to the park with Noah during the week, so I definitely want us to do that!  I hope the weather cooperates!  Chris and I also plan to go to the movies.  Here's my Friday Five :)


This week, Noah and I hosted the 2012 Play Date for my MOMS Club.  We had an amazing turnout… 6 moms and their kids (all boys!) came!  I was worried it would be really crowded, but it really wasn't that bad.  We snacked on fruit, goldfish crackers, and cookies.  The kids played and the mess left behind showed how much fun they had :)  To be honest though, Noah makes more of a mess by himself sometimes!  Noah had a blast and had a great nap after they left!  I was so happy to get a picture of all of us, thanks to my tripod and remote.  


We went to dinner at my parents' house on Sunday.  We had yummy pot roast with a bunch of sides.  For dessert, my mom made these strawberry and banana tarts with homemade whip cream.  I think I went a little overboard with the "dollop" of whip cream on top!


We've recently moved some furniture around in our apartment and brought a TON of stuff to my parents' basement.  Once everything is finalized I plan to do a post, but here's a sneak peak.  I'm so happy to give Noah some more space to play!


On Wednesday, Noah and I went to lunch at Nonna and Granddad's house.  (Side note:  Chris' mom recently decided to switch from being known as "Grammy" to "Nonna".  She's half Italian, so I think it's perfect!  Chris' dad also switched from Grandpa to Granddad… now we won't have any confusion with two grandpas.  Now Noah just needs to start talking lol.)


I've been loving this Spring weather!  On Thursday, we had walking group in the morning… Noah fell asleep mid-walk and it through off his naps that day!  My mom came over after lunch and we took Noah to the park.  On the way home we stopped to get some frozen yogurt :)
