So, back to the weekend {recap}

Over the weekend, we "celebrated" Matt's birthday.  My whole plan was for the 3 of us to have dinner Friday night and then Saturday take him out and drop the kiddo off at my parents.  Well...

Friday, we all went to Shiloh's.  It's a down-home-cookin' restaurant which neither of us had ever gone to.  The food was pretty good, our waiter on the other hand was SLOW.  Now don't get me wrong, I have all the patience and respect in the world for waiting tables, but my patience runs short when my 16 month old decides to show us just how loud his voice can get.  He wasn't throwing a tantrum, he just was {what some people say} finding his voice.  Well, he found it.  He just started yelling....then screaming!  To make a long story short, Matt took him out to the car and I got our food boxed up....

Luckily, to make up for such a stressful eating experience, I had earlier that day made Matt his favorite cookies....oatmeal pecan.  I made approximately 30 cookies and they were all gone by Sunday.




Saturday wasn't much better in the dining experience.  We ended up at the Cheescake Factory.  I took my lactose intolerant husband to the CHEESEcake Factory.  Nothing sounded good to either one of us, so we ended up there somehow.  It's not like they make everything with cheese.  Overpriced burgers it is!  This is how we differ when it comes to burgers....


So Sunday rolls around and all Matt wanted to do all weekend was take Christian to the zoo.  It was a beautiful day.  We were for sure this would be AWESOME.  *sigh* it was not so awesome.  We were SO unprepared.  I honestly thought he would be so amazed by all the animals, I would have nothing to do, but take tons of cute photos!  I was wrong. Well, I did get a few in before the independent Chrisian came out....


Where did they go???

There you guys are!



NOOOOO!  I wanna walk!

He has my lens cap in his hands

...and it begins...

We didn't even get passed the monkeys...the monkeys are the first attraction!  Like I said, we will try this again when it's cooler and when he's older...we're thinking October 2014.  I can see why people get those backpack harness things for their kids.  Don't be shocked if you see us at the zoo again with Christian wearing one.  I've always been against those, but I was against a lot of things before I became a parent.  If parenting has taught me one thing is to NOT judge a persons parenting technique.  If it works for them, why do you care?  As long as that kid isn't being abused and mistreated, you go right ahead and put your kid on one of those toddler leashes.  Don't assume your way is the end all be all.

...getting down from my soap box.

So, that was my weekend.  Have a great week!!

I say this so often but I don't even care- I cannot even handle how adorable your baby boy is!! :) Those are the type of kids that make me almost forget to go back up on stage when I'm in show. lol

And umm- those cookies just made me want them NOW but I'm supposed to be working out... quite the conundrum!
