Weekend Recap

This weekend was a very eventful one. Friday night my husband and I went out on a much needed date to one of our favorite sushi restaurants, Osaka. So delicious. We ordered drinks, salads (I love their ginger dressing), four specialty rolls, and their vanilla tempura ice cream is to die for. It comes out warm- the perfect balance with the ice cream. It was great to have an adult conversation (without interruption).

Saturday the girls and I were out of the house by 10:00 and not home again till dinnertime. We went to their cousin's soccer games (three different kids all at the same field), then to Boo at the Philadelphia Zoo, a quick trip to Babies R Us for Roman Shades, then to trick or treat in our neighborhood center of town. I wouldn't have normally gone to the Zoo on a Saturday because of the crowds, but my aunt and cousins were going who I don't see often so it was a special occasion. Plus, Nick was working so it was just the girls and I, but my Mom came for a bit and my cousins helped out, which was great. Summer actually stayed in the Ergo the entire time, which was convenient. The animals were all out today, too. I don't think I've ever seen the hippos out of the water and they were both out. The lions, tigers, cheetahs, and polar bears were all out for Ellie to see. It was a fun afternoon. Ellie is Minnie Mouse this year. I got her costume about a month ago in the dress up section of Target. She isn't wearing her ears today, but she will on Thursday. It was a chilly day so I put her in black jeggings, a pink Gymboree top, and her pink Uggs- all which matched perfectly. And, of course, a pink bow and pink pumpkin bucket. Despite trick or treating in the afternoon and evening, Ellie did not eat one piece of candy. She asked for a piece after dinner and I told her she could have one "tomorrow." She said ok and didn't put up a fight. She still hasn't had a piece, but her daddy and I had a few. At this age getting candy is more exciting to her than actually eating it. It's not exciting for me to give it to her either. I'd much rather go out for ice cream and share a cone than give her a piece of candy. I will probably let her have a piece or two after trick or treating on Thursday though since it's a special occasion.

Sunday was my sister in law's baby shower. She and her husband are expecting their first child, a boy, in December. I brought Summer along and my mom took Ellie for the afternoon. I loved Summer's outfit so I had to snap a few pictures, including one with my new Frye boots. 

Yesterday I took the girls to a local pumpkin patch. I dressed them in their Halloween outfits and got a few cute pictures.
 It was a very fun-filled weekend!
