With 'Ricky' working long hours we were thrilled to have some 'Daddy time' yesterday:) He made breakfast for everyone (great to share family meals together!) and I'm loving that we can all eat the same thing! No more baby food, toddler food, adult food- we're synchronizing and it's making things so much simpler and enjoyable for everyone:)
We then headed out to Kid to Kid, one of our favorite spots- I had to check out their Labor Day sale where summer clothes were 50% off, including clearance items! We picked up this cute striped GAP dress for Livy... (thinking of adding a flower...)
...and this Gymboree Tshirt for Jonah. My Mom bought this identical shirt (I love white shirts!) for him when he was much smaller and I loved it- so thrilled we found another to fit our 'Big O Boy'!
We then headed to Hildebrand in search of 'the perfect piece' to serve as a play kitchen for the kids- I'm planning on transforming an existing piece of furniture into a play kitchen, hopefully in time for Christmas:) It will be a huge accomplishment if I can manage it (with much help!) and will be a tremendous surprise for the kids, hopefully providing hours of fun for many years:) More details to follow on this...
After naps and laundry (after all, the laundry doesn't do itself, on a holiday or any other day!) we headed out to Chick-fil-A with our calendar coupon in hand, ready to get the kids good and worn out!
...while Jonah proceeded to eat all of their chicken nuggets, save 2 bites which he magnanimously gave to his sister:)
And once the kids were bathed and tucked into their beds, 'Ricky' & I enjoyed a movie with some Sangria- it was the perfect end to a perfect day!
Here's the Sangria recipe:
2 large oranges
2 large lemons
1 bottle inexpensive Merlot, chilled
1/4 cup Triple Sec
1/4 superfine sugar (or run granulated sugar in food processor for few seconds!)
Slice one of the oranges plus both lemons and add to a pitcher. Pour in sugar and mash with wooden spoon until fruit starts to break down and release juices. Add wine, Triple Sec and juice from second orange. Chill for 2 hours and enjoy!
