how was your weekend? ours was pretty busy, but the good kind of busy… days spent with family and friends, the beach, a date night with my love, running all over the city saturday morning prepping for someone’s first birthday party, church on sunday and an evening family bike ride too. josh and i even caught 20 minutes of SNL on hulu where kristen wiig hosts! (we’re behind but we love her…) all i know is when we have time for tv at the end of a long day, and i don’t fall asleep 5 minutes in, then it’s a success!
on friday morning, the littles and i went out to long island and enjoyed a day at the beach with friends! you should have seen us all hauling 7 strollers through the sand! it was a workout, but totally worth it! plus, i can’t be the only one who loves when my arms are sore. i feel like i’m living life right when my body is working hard…
^^^samson’s first beach trip! considering he tans so well (i promise i slather him in sunscreen everyday, i do!) and braved the cold ocean waves with a smile on his face as he splashed around, i don’t think he’ll mind that mama has made plans to go back every week.^^^
^^^just me, my blinding white legs, and my littles.^^^
^^^i like this picture, but it’d be a lot better if we had papa in it, too.^^^
^^^on friday night josh and i grabbed dinner together in nolita (north of little italy). we had tacos at tacombi and they were delicious. the grilled corn in a cup is enough to get me back there soon! the company wasn’t bad either. ;) ^^^
^^^on saturday we threw our big boy samson a little party in the park to celebrate his first birthday! i’ll share a few more photos later in the week, but these iphone shots are some of my favorite. thanks to all our good friends who helped haul all this stuff to central park and for celebrating with us!^^^
^^^oh you know, for a girl who doesn’t like getting dirty, somebody just had to get right in there with brother and have at that birthday cake, too!^^^
^^^sunday evenings are reserved for family bike rides at our house. last night we did all the loops in central park and eleanor captured the entire ride by taking photos with my diana camera. can’t wait to get that roll of film back. i have a feeling most are going to be double or triple exposed (she forgets to wind the camera…) but she had the best time clicking away so we just let her do her thing. such a budding photographer!^^^
have a great monday!
