Here’s what we’ve been up to the last few days.
Sunday, August 4
We visited the Oakland Zoo in the afternoon. Simon wanted to have a picnic so we just got some food at McDonald’s then had lunch at one of the picnic tables at the zoo. My guys looking so happy.
Monday, August 5
Today was a day out with the girls! My friends Vicki and Kathleen came out for brunch and shopping. We had brunch in Dublin at Denica’s. Vicki and I shared the berry crepe and bacon and sweet onion omelette.
After our brunch, we headed to the Livermore Premium Outlets. It was the first time for all of us. Lots of high end shops but also the usual outlet shops as well. Very clean and lots of seating throughout. Also pretty easy to navigate without weird alleyways or unexpected turns anywhere. I just bought some clothes for Iris for next year but nothing for myself this time around. Tried to show some restraint! Iris did well out and about today, even taking a 2 hour nap in her carseat/stroller. Here she is with Auntie Vicki.
Iris fell asleep at 7:30 pm. Tired little girl.
Tuesday, August 6
The amazing sleeping baby slept until 4:30am. 9 hours! I didn’t take advantage though and went to bed late. I think excursions from home exhaust Iris.
Tonight’s plans included swimming class and dinner with the family.
It was windy and cold but Simom didn’t seem to mind being in the pool. When out of the pool, he didn’t mind the cold as long as he was wearing his robe.
We had a belated birthday dinner planned for my brother. With the cold weather, I pulled out this sweatshirt for Iris. Auntie Betty gave this to Simon for his first Christmas. I’m glad to be able to use it again.
