The beginning of the week was pretty slow, especially with my parents in Colorado, but it was interesting having 4 dogs in the house for the week since they were gone. But, on Wednesday I took Connor downtown to Deep Elum for some pictures with friends. JP took the pics, and they are FANTASTIC! I can't believe how big he is... It was Connor and me, Tiffany and Keaton (4 months) and Brandon and Kaiden (also 9 months, he is 9 days younger than Connor). It was HOT, but here are a few shots, like I said, JP is the best.
On Thursday Connor and I had a lunch date with my dear friend Val, and her 6 week old, Katie. We met at Rosa's and Connor enjoyed eating my rice and beans, and a bit of tortilla. He thinks that Katie is very beautiful, (which she totally is), and can't wait for her to be old enough to play. We didn't take any pictures of the first outing, but others will certainly follow! Both Connor and Katie were very good during lunch and let Val and me chat for the better part of two hours.
Friday my best friend, Kathy, came into town and we took Connor to his very first Rangers game. He thought it was great, and I thought having Kathy, Mom, Dad and Chris to all help with Connor was equally as great! It turned out to be the perfect game to go to as well, it had rained much of the afternoon so the temp was cooler, we were seated below the awning on the third base side so the sprinkles stayed away, the game was quick, the Rangers won, and it was followed up by fantastic fireworks set to Broadway music. Seriously, does it get better than that?
Saturday I had free tickets to see Ramona and Beezus, so Mom, Kathy and I left Connor with Chris and headed to Allen for the show. We were pleasantly surprised with gift cards at the screening, and the movie was SO cute! Thanks MyDFWMommy! Check out our super cute peanut butter sandwhich picture.
Then it was time for Megan and Matt to arrive! We all ate lunch at Savannah Grill, (so good by the way), and had a great time catching up with each other. Connor especially enjoyed his time with his Auntie Megan and Uncle Matt. We spent the evening decorating the rest of the cupcakes from earlier in the week. We were all sad when Kathy had to leave.
We kinda took it easy on Sunday, just church, lunch at Abuelos and some errands. But today was Zoo Day! We headed out to Frank Buck Zoo in Gainesville relatively early, we wanted to be sure to get there in time to feed the giraffes. If you have small kids, that zoo is perfect! In a little over 2 hours we had seen the entire zoo, and had fed the giraffes and some goats. It is a great size and all the employees were very polite. Not a ton of animals, but perfect for kids! Also, very affordable! Then we had lunch in Gainesville before spending a quiet evening at home.
Connor was obviously exhausted by the end of lunch. Home for a nap!
