here are a few more photos from our labor day weekend with friends….
^^^after we put the little ones down for naps on saturday, the men suggested we ladies head out while they held down the fort (i think there was a football game on, or something.) and i mean, we couldn’t really argue with that. so we took off! we checked out the cute little shops along main street without our strollers and spent some time chatting around a table while watching youtube clips of jim gaffigan’s stand up on our phones. (side note, i’m kind of embarrassed to say i only read one book this summer. and, it was jim gaffigan’s dad is fat. but also, i can’t tell you how good it was. i would read it on my iphone while nursing my baby to sleep and more than once i had to cover my mouth in fear of waking him because i was laughing so hard. i’d then insist on rereading entire paragraphs to josh before we went to sleep because it’s one of those books where you just want to share it because it’s hysterical so i kind of feel like josh read it, too. another side note, i actually spotted jim gaffigan with two of his kids this summer down in the village! and he was dancing down the sidewalk with his kids! i was like, is this real like?! he’s dancing with his children as he’s walking with them?! to date, it was my best celebrity sighting and i sure hope it happens again because i’m still kicking myself for not going up to him and making a fool of myself telling him what a fan i am. next time, next time. any way, all these side notes are over.)^^^
