What a Saturday!

We don't know how many Saturdays we'll have left just the two of us- especially Saturdays as beautiful as yesterday was! So of course we had to take advantage the best we could. After a relaxing morning (We slept in, Matt made me waffles with strawberries and whipped cream- yum, went for a walk to Freddies for a couple things, then completed a few "to dos" around the house) we packed a bag and headed downtown. Rusty was thrilled that he got to come too. We drove to Waterfront Park and then walked down to "Sushi & River" and picked up a couple California rolls "to go" and then found a nice sunny spot in the grass. I can't believe how lovely it was- the sun was warm on our skin but not enough to make us hot- there was a slight breeze and everything just seemed perfect. We enjoyed our California rolls and some carrot sticks and strawberries and just lounged in the sun for about an hour. Not a cloud in the sky- it was beautiful.
Afterward we got a couple ice cream cones and walked down the waterfront to the fountain and sat and watched the kiddos play for a bit, and then turned around and headed back to the car. We probably walked for about an hour, (drop, baby, drop!) and I was pooped. It was about three thirty when we got home and we talked about going to the pool (yep, it's still open and wonderful!!) but decided to lie on the couch and read instead. I finished "The Big Book of Birth" - my 7th pregnancy/birth/child rearing book so far this summer.
Then, after some marathon grocery shopping, we headed out to Insomnia for their incredibly delicious Chai and some great live music. We stayed out until almost 11:00- party animals. It was a great day. :)

Sounds like a great day! It seems like you guys are doing a good job of getting lots of "couple" time in before the little one gets here. I hear that is a good thing:-)
