Our Weekend

This weekend is the first of three weekends in a row that involve plans with some of my favorite ladies.  I have an amazing group of girl friends that live in town.  H and B love them, yes Andrea even you, so we get to see them often. While the twins, and our favorite ginger boy, have changed how often and what our outings consist of, we still make sure we see each other.

Saturday was Foodstock 2013, a gathering of some of Fort Wayne's food trucks. It still amazes me that Fort Wayne can support one food truck, let alone a group of them.  The kids and I joined the girls to enjoy some food truck fare and listen to local music.  

All in all it was a good afternoon.   The wait times for food were rather ridiculous, but the food was good and the company was even better.  We enjoyed fried pickles, a bacon cheddar burger and strawberry ice cream. Harrison also ate some dirt and Brooke got down on a few of Kristie's truffle fries.

This morning we decided to let daddy sleep in and we took off for the zoo.  It was only 55* when we left the house, so the kids were dressed in long sleeves, pants and socks.  Where did summer go? The cooler weather made for active animals and not too many people at the zoo.  H and B got to walk around a bit more than usual which they were all about.  

After naps Harrison still seemed tired and extremely fussy.  I'm not sure if his allergies are bothering him or if he's getting sick.  He and I got to snuggle in bed while he napped and nursed. That's the only good thing about sick babies, snuggles.  It's been a long time since I've had one of them asleep on my shoulder. It was so nice.  It almost makes me want to cosleep again.  As great as it is, 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night wins out.    

When he woke up, thankfully in a better mood, we headed out for dinner.  I got to enjoy a pint of Flat 12 Porter and the kids got to enjoy broccoli and sweet potato fries.  It was a win win for all of us, well except Rob. They had Yuengling on the menu, which isn't distributed in Indiana. He was so excited and then the server busted his bubble.  Boo!  We still had a good time.

I am hoping H will be feeling better tomorrow morning. Having Robbie home to hang with Brooke today was a godsend. If little man isn't feeling better tomorrow,there may be heavy drinking for mommy once the kids go to bed. Hopefully that won't be the case.

I hope you all had a great weekend and are enjoying the last little bit before getting back to the daily grind tomorrow.
