A Bistro weekend...

This past weekend was absolutely GORGEOUS weather wise. Aunt Tracey made a quick trip into town. She arrived Friday morning and flew out again Saturday afternoon. First stop was lunch at the bistro. I have been craving it a lot lately as beignets are featured in Molly's latest obsession, The Princess and the Frog. It was the perfect day to sit out on the patio and have some yummy food. Molly started to fade as nap time approached so we took off first. We spent a lazy day hanging out while Molly napped. Once she got up Grandpa and Aunt Tracey took her on a walk down to the rose garden while I took Sadie on a walk *around* the rose garden (no dogs allowed). We ordered a pizza for dinner and everyone sat down to watch The Princess and the Frog with Molly after bath time.

Saturday morning we met up at Stacks for breakfast where we also saw the Jodoins. After that we headed back home and Molly had some bubble time out front. Grandpa and Aunt Tracey took Molly down to Starbucks and then it was nap time again. N got home from his week long "work" trip right as Molly was going down. Luckily he was able to visit with Aunt Tracey for a bit before she had to take off for the airport. Granny Marsh wanted to play Set (a card game Aunt Tracey brought on a previous visit) as she's really good at it. Granny and Grandpa took Aunt Tracey to the airport and then we had to wake Molly up for her friend Jessie's second birthday party.

Unfortunately Molly was not in the best mood as we woke her up from a deep sleep in order to get to the party on time. She wanted to sit in N's arms and kept telling him to take her to the car and put her in her car seat. I negotiated with her to get her blanket from the car and she slowly warmed up to the party by carrying that around with her. The party was at The Little Gym which Molly normally loves. She was just starting to get into the swing of things when they inflated the jumper (trampoline like pathway). This is by far Molly's favorite thing to do and she promptly ditched her blanket so she could jump Jump JUMP! I took this opportunity to hide her blanket and she didn't seem to notice. N had his camera and got some great shots. Hopefully those will be posted soon.

Sunday was a lazy day. N woke up with Molly (YAY!) and even though they were hanging out in the kitchen it was nice to just lay in bed for a bit. I was also pleasantly surprised to find N had given the entire kitchen a nice deep clean. YAY! The house on the corner was throwing a birthday party and had rented a bounce house so we headed down. Molly had a blast and did not want to leave when it was nap time. Although she was just laying down and giggling like a fool as the other kids jumped around her so I knew it was time. Grandma Lucille and Papa J were south of us for a lunch so they stopped by on their way back home. We headed to the park as it was just beautiful out. Both N and Molly had a blast.

After the park we went back to the bistro for dinner. It was the perfect way to end a wonderful weekend.
