Early riser: we were up before anyone else, so we enjoyed the fresh air, morning dew and birds singing.
Isabella loves to help me in the kitchen. She now pulls the chair up near the counters and "helps". Luckily the faucet is a great distraction when I need to use knives or work at the stove. Speaking of knives...I lost a sharp pairing knife a few weeks ago. Not exactly the thing to loose in a house with a toddler, but I've search everywhere (in the kitchen). I feel like I'm loosing my marbles too! Totally weird!
Of the four of us moms and babes I'm the last to post about our adventures in animal land. You can see almost the same exact posts here, here, and here.
Isabella's favorite animals this time were the sea lions...she kept asking for "more".
A couple of weeks ago we went to the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party in Madison Square Park. We got there the last 15 minutes or so before the vendors closed up. Brian and I separated and picked up the best barbecued meats right before the lines closed. I loved the pulled pork sandwiches. I highly recommend going next year and going late in the day. We ate from Ubon's from Yazoo, MS; The Salt Lick from Driftwood, TX; and Blue Smoke from NY, NY. Unfortunately, The Pit was already closed when we got there. Two years ago we ate from them and it was fantastic (also the longest lines).
And then we finished off with some Red Mango frozen yogurt. So very delicious!
