This weekend is the first in a long time where we have very minimal plans... and I couldn't be more thrilled about it ;-)
The little guy is taking a bit longer than usual to reacclimate to being back home - there have been some long and frustrating bedtime routines the past couple of nights and we're really hoping that a nice relaxing weekend of spending time just the three of us at home will remind him how much he usually loves his bed and night nights.
Hayzey and I kicked off the weekend right this morning by taking a trip to the park. It definitely felt like Fall - there was a crisp chill in the air and even a little drizzle - but luckily that meant we pretty much had the run of the place to ourselves, which is a rarity. A few other kids finally came about a half hour after we got there and Hayes had fun playing with their sand toys and sitting on their trikes. We definitely need to get that kid into some more playgroups - he absolutely adores other kids!

Other items on the agenda this weekend?:
...staying in tonight with some of our favorite Thai take-out, hopefully in front of a warm and inviting fire on our new logs.
...punishing ourselves tomorrow by watching the Canes fight to redeem themselves from last weekend's abysmal performance.
...a play date with our friends Liz and Ollie tomorrow afternoon.
...dinner at a trendy local Peruvian restaurant, Picca with our friends Jodie and Omer (whilst trying out a new babysitter - fingers crossed!).
...Sunday brunch with Grant's fam - we're bringing the fruit salad and it's going to be spectacular.
...a trip to Shawn's Pumpkin Patch to pick out some victims for our Annual Cohen Family Carving Contest (which I conveniently always win!).
...lots of snuggles with this little girl - we've been traveling so much lately, I feel like I've been abandoning my feline daughter ;-(
Hope you all have a great weekend!
