Our weekend adventures

Well hello there!  How’s everyone’s first week of August going?  Can you believe it is August already?!  Where has the year gone?

We were lucky enough to celebrate the beginning of August with our fantastic friends!  Bestest, her hubby, and little man were in town and we had a great time!  We kept things pretty low-key and spent a lot of time at home, hanging out in the air conditioning, watching the Olympics, and waiting for little man to wake up from his naps.  We also ate some really, really good food and, since we had a 2-year-old with us all weekend, got to act like little kids and get away with it!  It was a pretty awesome weekend.  See for yourself:

We took little man to the pool and to the splash pad. {d&k} had never been to a splash pad before and it was am.az.ing! I didn’t think we would be able to get k to leave. I think he was having more fun than the kids. But, we won’t be able to go back anytime soon because I think that two grown adults hanging out at the splash pad without kiddos qualifies as creepy. Too bad.

We had an adult date night at a fantastic little restaurant called Cane Rosso. I saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives a few months ago and knew we had to go. It was delicious. Clearly, from the picture, we couldn’t wait to snap a picture before diving into the pizza. So, this is what you get. A practically licked clean plate. In fact, k may have been licking the plate. Hmmm…

You know that really awkward moment when your husband and your bestest’s hubby start holding hands during dinner? Oh, you’ve never experienced that moment?! I wish we hadn’t either.

We took little man to the aquarium and we all had a blast. I will never get sick of the aquarium! Little man had a good time too. After he looked at an animal for a minute or two, he would yell, “ELSE” letting us know it was time to move on to the next animal. It was pretty funny. So, even though the aquarium was packed, we made it through it record time, thanks to little man keeping us on a tight schedule. We even got to see the penguins during feeding time, which is my favorite thing to see, except for the otters.

We, of course, had to make the usual yummy pit stops. We went to Snuffers (or as bestest calls it, Snuffies – hehe, which I like better) for their awesome cheese fries and burgers. We also went out for ice cream sandwiches and, as you can see from k, they were delicious. I am definitely paying for all the good food we ate this week. It’s a lot harder to move at the gym. Oof.

The zoo loved little man. When Elvis wasn’t trying to jump up and lick little man’s face, he would cuddle with him any chance he got. Oskar would lay outside of his door until he fell asleep at night, and Uma would pace and whine outside his door until he got up in the morning. The cats felt a little indifferent about him. They were fine for a while, until little man pulled Sebastian across the wood floor. By the tail. I think the other cats witnessed that because they hid the rest of the weekend. Even Sebastian would lay on his tail when little man was around. I think they secretly liked the attention.

After little man went back to Ohio, the pugs fell into a sleep coma for 2 days. They are still a little worn out. Trying to lick, cuddle, and keep up with a 2-year-old is hard work!

Well, there you have it. That’s what we did over the weekend with our favorite people. Stayed tuned to see what we have planned for this weekend!

Enjoy your day,
