I love Saturdays. Especially more so after I started working because it's the one day I can take a break from thinking about work. A question frequently asked by Z and N every morning is, "Do you have to work today, ma?" and I love that on Saturdays I get to say, "Nope, not today...and not tomorrow either!" We ended up having a pretty full Saturday this weekend which was pretty rare for us. And I took pictures throughout the day, which was even more rare. But I love that I did, thanks to this blog.
Dark and early at 6:30, we woke up with Naynay in between us, as usual. Actually what wasn't the usual was that Gary was still in bed with us. He's often forced to make his way to Naynay's bed or the couch in the middle of the night because Nay loves sleeping really close to him, sometimes way too close for his liking ;-) Thankfully Izzy likes her crib so far, and sometimes will sleep in it through the night. Zoey is good with sleeping on her own now, after a few years of tough sleepless nights. But really, as a parent, I live for moments captured in this blurry picture. All the hard times are easily cancelled out or forgotten when sweet ones like this happen :)
Gary's been working from the office in the Columbia Center for a few months now and we'd wanted to take the kids up there to see this view for a long time. We finally did on Saturday, and even though the weather was a bit gloomy, it was still beautiful.
After downtown, we stopped by the Land of Nod at University Village for a craft event hosted by our dear friend, Erin (from The Indigo Bunting). She recently came out with her own craft book, and everything she makes is so ridiculously cute. The kids had fun coloring and making candy necklaces, but also had a hard time refraining from eating those candies. Haha!
After U-Village we squeezed in a bubble tea break at the newly opened ShareTea. Gary doesn't like tapioca, so it was just me and the older two enjoying. It was delicious! Probably the best I've had in Seattle (I still have this daydream that some day I should open a hipster bubble tea place in Seattle too, ha!)
Lucky kiddos got new crayons from auntie Erin and we opened them right away while waiting for our bubble tea. These korean crayons are SO nice! They have the creamiest texture than any other crayons we've tried (Zoey was very intrigued) and can be scrolled up and down easily.
We stopped by the Meridian Playground briefly afterwards and this is probably one of my favorite pictures of Naynay. He found this hat, which he didn't like and refused to wear last year, from a deep hidden corner in his room yesterday and decided to love it now. He kept it on all day today! Our 3-year-old boy has a slight obsession with hats, gloves, aprons, and sunglasses right now (he usually wears them altogether.) I'll try and take a picture of that ensemble next time :) Hope you all are having a great weekend, too! <3
