a few iphone snaps taken over the last week.
poor boys (and even me who hardly ever gets sick) have been battling a
case of the winter sniffles this last week, and so we've been laying low to
some extent.. i find that very hard to do actually.. i always feel as if it's
better for mental and therefore physical health to get out in the fresh
air.. especially when it beautiful and sunny like it has been this
weekend... but i guess i need to realize there are times when laying low
is the best option, especially to give little bodies chance to recover.
so the weekend has consisted mainly of christmas movies and snuggling
:) we did get out on a great hike on sat thankfully though (see previous
during our weekly routine, roo and i have got into a bit
of a habit of somehow arriving at the coffee shop every day after the
morning's activity.. it's pretty fun actually. roobs gets a hot
chocolate and i get my much needed caffeine fix, win win. our favorite
hang out at the moment is cafe for contemporary art.
great coffee, interesting art, funky chairs... and a kids area. i like
this place! it's also walking distance from ol's work so we can meet up
for lunch now and again.
prior to the coughs and sniffles taking over around
the weekend a few highlights for us were fun had by roo messing about in a
rather deep puddle.. the big weekly grocery shop, which has become a lot
easier now that we have discovered kids get a free cookie from the
bakery (haha who am i?!). roo busting into the christmas display/santa
area at the mall that wasn't open yet and i couldn't get him back.
it was also ol's christmas
work 'do' on friday and a rare chance for us to get all dressed up and
enjoy a night out together... without the kids! this was really the
biggest highlight of the week but.. unfortunately we totally forgot to
get any pictures of ourselves in our finery.. seriously!! it will be
another a year again before we see ourselves looking that good! darn.
benji (although sniffly) is doing great, he is seriously such a smiler and cracks me up
all the time with his big grins.
other big news, super star roo has been without a diaper for a week now
and he has been doing so well. he's totally cracked it at home and does
fine with reminders when we're out. nice work roobs! x
