We were off from Friday until Tuesday (well, Eric had Thursday off too but I’m not counting that. 😆 ).
The rundown on the weekend:
Thursday: After work, I went to a condo-warming party down the street. Stayed until 8 pm then went home. Eric came home at 1 am.
Friday: I got Eric up to go to Brookfield zoo. I wanted to be there at 9:30 am when they opened but alas, he was hung over and we made it a little past 10 am so it wasn’t too bad. We didn’t see much of the zoo but it was beautiful day to go. Diego wanted to see the monkeys so that is the first thing we did. We did the Sting-ray exhibit but Diego got bored plus he did not want to get wet but I was able to touch one. Kinda hard to bend over with the belly in the way. 🙂 We took a break to eat our snacks. Diego saw the playground so we hung out there for a while. We then went to see the Dolphin show. We decided we were done. But on the way out, Diego saw the Merry Go Round and wanted to get on. So he did with Eric. THEN we finally left the zoo.
My SIL’s shower was on Saturday so we needed to get a gift. We went to BRU for a shower gift. Then went to the mall and bought Diego new bedding at Pottery Barn kids.
Saturday: After months and months of wanting to get my hair cut, I finally got my hair cut. Then we went to the baby shower.
Sunday: We went out for breakfast at a new place, Meli Cafe. It was yummy! I had the Honey Cakes, Diego had the waffles and Eric had the Rocky Mountain skillet. Next time, Eric wants to try the crepes and I will have to try the french toast. Too bad they don’t have a children’s menu considering that a lot of kids were there.
Later that afternoon, we went to a block party right across the park. That was fun. Diego played with his friends and we ate and ate. 😛
Monday: We went to Milwaukee for the afternoon. Hung out with Eddie and Maggie. We also met Amy, Ana’s little girl. She was born 10-12 weeks premature. But she is doing really well and she now weighs 4 pounds considering she weighed 2 pounds at birth. All she needs to do before going home is learning how to eat on her own. I am sure she will be able to do it soon.
Tuesday: We wanted to go apple picking today but the apples we want are not ready. So we postponed the trip a couple of weeks. Instead, we finally went to see Wall-E. Diego really liked it and so did we. It is such a brilliant movie, I can’t wait for it on DVD. Afterwards, we went to eat some dinner, then hit the playground and then home.
So now, I am back at work. 😛
