We had a really fun weekend – lots packed in this time!
On Friday we had terrible rainy and cold weather, but we met Matt for a little late afternoon shopping at Barracks Road.
Knowing that we had a simple dinner on the other side, we didn’t want our time out to end, so as we were passing the new Three Notch’d Brewing Co. we decided to step inside.
Super duper impressed with the new place!! The atmosphere was awesome, especially with a baby.
Mazen made friends right away with another boy, and the seating arrangements were perfect for kids.
And the snack mix was awesome – pretzels for babies; wasabi peanuts for parents!
And the beers….YUM!
I loved the No Veto Brown and the Sweet Winter Ale. The Tripel was also awesome, as was the Espresso Stout.
We ended our Friday night with some simple spaghetti.
With some of the sauce we canned two summer ago over fresh Mona Lisa Pasta.
Saturday morning Matt went in at 3:30am, but he met us at the gym for athletic conditioning! The class was awesome and full of variety. Sarah and I had a blast!
Afterward we went to the pool and took Mazen for a swim, followed by a hot steam shower and rainy drive home.
Syrah for me…
We shared the pimento cheese and fried pickles to start
The babies had fun playing together! Looks like Mazen is saying “More pimento cheese!”
Matt and I share a few small plates ….meatballs
Black eyed pea grits…
And smoked trout in a jar. Really good, but I still don’t quite know what it was!
Finally a delicious kale salad
Sunday started simply with an early breakfast and a family walk around the neighborhood. Yay for a sunny day!!!
Then I went grocery shopping and brought home Whole Foods salad/hot bar for lunch. Love the sweet n sour tofu!
During naptime we did all of our meal prep for the week (a la Cook Smarts!)
And then we Mazen was up and fed we met friends at Trump Winery for a fun afternoon! It was sort of warm outside, so we figured we should get out of the house.
Mazen made friends!
And we sipped bubbly
Baby Snack Time
We ended the weekend with dinner with Karen at a Mexican restaurant downtown. I had chips (duh), a Corona and split some seafood fajitas with Matt. A full weekend it was!
