Weekend Recap...

This weekend was a busy one, with lots of family in town and lots of people to keep our main man entertained.

Auntie V and Uncle Andrew arrived on Saturday morning, just in time for us to wake Hayes up so we could squeeze in a quick lunch before Toddle Tunes. Since TT is at 1p every Saturday and Hayzey's morning naps have been pretty epic as of late (this past Sunday, he slept from 10a - 12:30p!!), we've been finding ourselves having to wake him up more often than not lately so we can get some lunch in before class. Auntie V lucked out this time as Hayes was particularly delicious and happy when we got him up on Saturday; I wish there was a way I could bottle those moments up and experience them forever...

We skipped Tender Greens in favor of a more convenient and filling lunch at a new pizza place called 800 Degrees. For those of you LA locals who haven't been yet, you must give it a try - the pizzas are delish and it's super quick and easy which equals very family friendly ;-) And an added bonus is that you get to see the guys making your pizza, so it's fun for Hayzey to watch while we wait.

After lunch, Andrew and Grant headed to the range to hit some balls and Auntie V and I took Hayes to Toddle Tunes, which he absolutely loved again. He is a serious social butterfly in the classes we've taken him to and could care less if we're there or not. Here are a couple shots I snapped of him with his friends:
 
Oh Ollie, give it to me and I'll show you how it's done...
Impressing the chicks with his skills...
Bubbles? What the hell are those?
We went to Son of a Gun on Saturday night and it didn't disappoint. In fact, we made a reservation for a month from now when Grant's cousin and girlfriend are in town as we were on our way out... THAT's how good it is (and how hard it is to get ressies!).

The Greats arrived on Sunday morning and we went to a nice brunch at Factors (Hayes had the silver dollar pancakes and could not shovel the bites in his mouth fast enough!) and after an afternoon of basketball watching for the boys and pedicures for the girls,  Nini and Darryl prepared an absolute feast for dinner. 

Here's an adorable shot I took of the "men" watching the game. Can you spot the youngest fan?
 
 
And here are some cute ones of Hayes helping me unload the dishwasher and Hayes the contortionist...
 

It was a great weekend and we're so grateful to have so much family in our life. We just wished everyone (including the Mailloux clan) lived closer so we could do it more often :-(
 
Gearing up for the big party this weekend - weather right now says it's going to be partly cloudy and 67 degrees. I'll take it! Still can't believe our little guy is going to be 1 in 5 short days...

Hope y'all have a great week!
