Weekend Recap

We had a lovely, sun drenched weekend over here!  I hope it was warm wherever you are.

I think it was the sunshine that prompted my Mom (Nana) to decide to reveal a special Easter present a tad early:

She took us to the store and Ellie picked out a bike.  We discovered her three year old head is the size of a five year old (of course!).  We almost took an elderly lady out riding out of the store, but she made some progress on the whole pedaling concept by the end of the day.

I still remember my own Dad teaching me how to ride, it seems crazy that we are teaching ours.  It's obvious now that we are not parents of a baby anymore, but of a  kid.  Weird.

We were also able to escape for a little date.  We had Thai food and then spent a lot of time in Barnes and Noble reading about France.  We are getting more and more excited about our big move.  He chose books about where to go and what to do.  I chose ones about other Americans and how they adjusted to living there. I looked up the price of said books on Amazon while sitting there...much, much cheaper.  Terrible, right?

My birthday is this week (keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway!), and my hubby gave me an early present:

He really is the best!


  1. How fun!! We were going to get Ethan a bike for his birthday, then realized that the only place he'd be able to ride is in our apartment complex's parking lot. NO thank you! We'll have to wait till we move to California this summer :)

  2. I like that picture at the top..."Look Mom, no feet!"
