It’s The Simple Things
Had the loveliest of weekends. My sweet Tiago turned 2! I still can’t believe it. He is growing so fast and his little personality is really beginning to show. He loves to have fun, is very compassionate, loves music, food, running, trains, plains, gorillas. He is also a bit cautious. he wants to hold my hand when stepping down from the curb. he does not like to feel unsteady, and hates getting sticky things on his hands. I looove everything about him! Everything.
We went to the mall where James was volunteering at a booth for a chiropractor and Tiago had his face painted and talked to Captain America.
I got to eat at my favorite restaurant on earth, The Silly Goose on the last night that they were open for a month of renovations. The cool thing was that when we walked in I was sooo craving the cheese platter. It is soo good. When I mentioned that to James he mentioned that for money’s sake that night we better choose between the cheese or the ice cream. In an instant ice cream won. About 2 minutes later the server brought us a cheese platter and told us it was on the house. What? It seriously made my whole month. The one on the bottom left and the one to the right of it are my favorites. So yummy. Also, wine in a mason jar. Can’t be beat.
One of our best buds lives right around the corner from The Goose so we went over after dinner and a bunch of our friends were there sitting around an outdoor table with candles burning under a tree with white twinkle lights and a chandelier. Such a perfect setting. the best part was when we called another good friend who has just gotten out of the army that we have only seen a handful of times over the last few years and talked to him on speaker phone. That is what the above pic is of.
Lastly, I was more than excited to find out that James’ mom who the boys refer to as Mimi got them new lunch boxes! I had been putting all of their lunch items in separate containers for months and they eat a lot. So every night I had about 20 little tupperwares to wash individually. Now we have these super nice Planet Boxes. They are expensive, so it was amazing to receive them as a gift. Tonight there are only two containers to wash and look at how cute they are.
