Happy Friday! We are currently on our way to Rhode Island to visit my brother and his family (otherwise known as Noah's 3 cousins). I'm so excited to spend the weekend at the beach and really hope traffic isn't horrible! Here's a little recap of our last week...
In case you are like me, and are a little behind with reading blogs, here are my posts from the week...
Last weekend, Chris and I were able to get away for a date night. Last minute, we were given the opportunity to go to the Mets game where Mike Piazza's jersey was being retired. While I'm not a huge baseball fan, Chris is and is/was a huge Piazza fan. And even though I know very little about Piazza, I couldn't help getting caught up with the excitement of the crowd. While getting to Citi Field can be a huge pain (far away and lots of traffic), I'm glad we did it. The absolute best part was that our seats were under an overhang so we weren't bothered by the constant rain that kept changing from light to heavy. And I'm so relieved that Noah had fun with my mom since she watched him for almost 10 hours and went to bed with her.
We took it easy on Sunday. I guess I really am old, because I was exhausted after being up til midnight because of the game. We spent the day in our pajamas and only get dressed to meet some friends for dinner. We took the kids for hibachi, and while Noah has been before, it was his friends' first time! While Noah is a little scared of the fire, he ended up having a great time and really loved the noodles. He also thought it was pretty cool when the chef started singing the clean up song!
I woke up Monday morning with a pretty bad cold. Not sure if I outdid myself on Saturday or if the cold was just inevitable, but boy did it do me in. Thankfully, Noah was just as happy to take it easy on Monday and have a pajama and iPad day. He really is a homebody, so this is his favorite way to spend a rainy Monday.
Thankfully I woke up feeling a little better on Tuesday, minus a lingering cough and some congestion. While we cancelled a play date, we were able to get back to our somewhat normal routine. Noah was very excited that Chris left some Blaze coloring pages for him to do first thing in the morning. Noah preceded to grab his Blaze trucks (only the "good guys") to make sure he colored all the trucks "correctly".
