Our Weekend in Photos

While our weekend didn't go exactly as planned because of the snow, we still had so much fun.  Here are some highlights!

Chris got home from work 30 minutes earlier than he normally does!  He printed out these Bubble Guppies puzzles for Noah to do after dinner.  They played and then came up for bath.  

On Saturday, we were originally supposed to meet some friends of ours at the Crayola Experience.  They live in Philadelphia so we thought it would be fun for the kids to spend the morning there.  But with snow and freezing rain in the forecast, we decided to postpone our plans.  Instead, we just spent the day at home. 

Noah didn't mind... he got a new toy this weekend!  It arrived earlier this week (we were amazed at how fast it shipped) but we waited until the weekend to set it up so we could both see him do it for the first time.   Check out these two videos of him first seeing the roller coaster and then him jumping for joy about it.  This was the first time Noah actually jumped with two feet!

I couldn't let Noah have all the fun!  So I gave it a try too, and Chris got that on video as well!

We got this roller coaster because Noah fell in love with it at the MOMS Club Halloween party last year.  I guess he remembered, because after I went upstairs to get ready, Chris sent me this picture.  Noah found his halloween costume in the closet and wanted to put it on!  

We then came upstairs to make some Jello molds.  Chris found this animal set a while ago and we finally got around to making it with Noah!  

During Noah's nap, Chris ran some errands.  Since we were expecting another snow storm, he ran to get gas and some groceries before it got bad.  We've been looking for "Crispy Rounds" for months now with no luck.  I was more excited than anyone should be when I got a picture of Tostitos from Chris!

When Noah woke up from his nap, we did a little photo shoot of him wearing his new St. Patty's T-shirt.  We also brought the faux hawk back!  We then had a little time to play before getting ready for dinner.  We did some play doh and then went back to the basement to play with the roller coaster some more.  Chris then had the brilliant idea to jump over Noah as he came rolling down.  When a guy has a son, it's like an excuse to act like a big kid again ;)

The snow had stopped for a little while and we headed out to dinner with some friends of ours.  They just recently moved here so we wanted to take them out and show them one of our favorite restaurants.  This Italian restaurant is also where we had our rehearsal dinner.  I'm glad we went early when it wasn't busy because Noah wouldn't sit in his high chair for longer than 2 minutes... even with  the iPad!

We spent most of Sunday just hanging out inside.  We asked Noah if he wanted to go to Gymboree, but he said no.  We did go out for dinner at Hibachi with my parents and brother Luke.  Luke got married at the end of November, but since then he hasn't been living with his husband because of his job here in New Jersey.  He is starting a new job and is finally able to move in with Tyler.  We will miss Luke, but we are excited for this next chapter in his life!  

^^^ Since Noah loves candles we had them sing to Luke, even though his birthday was at the beginning of January!  

We are super cool people, and stopped at the grocery store on the way home from dinner.  Chris had noticed that a local Kings had some kid sized shopping carts and wanted to take Noah there ASAP.  Noah shared Chris' excitement for the shopping carts and had a blast walking all over the store!  In case these pictures aren't enough, check out this video!  I think we will end up shopping at this store more often now!

How was your weekend?


  1. So much fun!! We love the kids carts, too! :)

  2. I love that the cart has a parent pole!! Genius.

  3. You are so brave to let him have a mini cart! I know that clean up on aisle 3 and $197927923 later, that would be us LOL. Hope Noah didn't crash too many times! ;)
    Also, that roller coaster looks AMAZING! I bet you all are having the best time with it!
