Week in review
This past week we've kept ourselves busy! I can't believe we are already halfway through summer. Only four more weeks before I go back to work. This makes me so sad because Emma and I are having so much fun hanging out every day. Savoring all my time I am getting with her. This past week we have dropped to one nap. Some days have gone smoother than others.
Saturday we went to Ada's birthday party and I was too busy chasing Emma to take any pictures. It was cute! That afternoon we decided to go to the Braves game. Emma did great! We figured there aren't many 4pm Saturday games so why not go for it. We have some things we would have done differently. 1) buy a parking pass closer 2) remember the ergo or stroller. I brought lots of snacks and her dinner so she did great until around the 7th inning and she was ready to go. All in all it was great! I hadn't been to the new stadium yet. They've done a great job with the stadium and plus it's way closer to our house.
Sunday we had Collier for the day so Bonnie and Brett could move without a two year old in the way! We went to the park, pool, played at home and they both took amazing naps that afternoon.
Sunday night I had four of my good college friends and their spouses over for a cookout. We did the burgers and dessert and they all brought a side/salad/app to add to the spread. The weather was stunning so we took our spread on the back porch. Here's how I set the table thinking it would be too hot outside.
Monday we went to breakfast with my mom and nana. She is still adjusting to one nap and fell asleep in the car so there's was our nap for the day 🤦🏻♀️ later that night Tommy and I played a tennis match followed by dinner at El Rey. Thanks to my in-laws for watching Emma! We won our match. Was fun to play together for the first time in what feels like two years!
Tuesday we tried out Ashford Park for the first time. They have lots of toddler things for her to play with. We had a great time!
We popped in at Ansley's to visit for a bit before trying out story time at the Chamblee library. It was fun for her. They did a mix of music, dancing and story time. We will go back. We ended the day with some pool time!
Wednesday we had our weekly music class and I spent the afternoon prepping for Supper club. I cooked dinner this month but we ate at Ansley's. I made a Greek spread! Greek 7 layer dip to start with watermelon frose, Greek salad and chicken gyros for dinner and baklava bites for dessert. Turned out great!
Everyone doted on sweet Gavin! Love my girlfriends in my supper club. Look forward to our dinners every month. Next month is out at Rumi's Kitchen!
Thursday we started our day meeting my coworkers son Graham. He was born on June 9th. He's adorable!
And spent the rest of the day playing at home
We are on the road to the beach now for the week! Looking forward to some down time with my family and Tommy's family is coming to join us for the afternoon/evening on Monday! We will miss Claire (she's still in Europe for her internship) and Dad (he's flying to SA tonight for Granny's funeral which is Tuesday). Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!
