We had an amazing weekend around these parts — lots of friends, lots of great food and lots of laughs. Ezra was in an *amazing* mood all weekend … until he tried his very first lollipop (as seen above). That piece of candy was like a mainline of cocaine* straight to his brain and we probably won’t be doing that again anytime soon. But I hope he enjoyed it while it lasted.
We started the weekend with sushi. Lesson learned: Order Ezra his own damn sushi because sharing doesn’t work as he eats all of ours. But the good news is that he loves eel and avocado and shrimp and octopus and wow, what a kid!
Just a few shots from our room at the Japanese restaurant. I love those private dining experiences.
After dinner, Ezra played outside with Evie (who joined us with her parents for the meal!). Evie looks like a flower child from 1969 here, and I love it.
The weather this weekend has been phenomenal, so we practically lived in the backyard.
We started Mother’s Day with Ezra deciding to push the vacuum cleaner around. YES, LET’S WORK ON THAT SOME MORE!
Then he got dressed for our brunch date and man-oh-man is he cute or what?
At brunch, he ate guacamole with a spoon. Who eats that for breakfast? My very own spawn, that’s who. Jamie shot this image after we finished eating.
After brunch and nap time, our buddies Eric, Betz and Eero came over to hang out in the back yard. Eero was a total champ and helped Ezra with his trike (an played ball with the kid). It was a lovely afternoon, and we had a fantastic time.
And then we gave Ezra this piece of brain-changing organic material and he turned into a whirling dervish with a short temper and extreme frustration. Good thing we got him settled down by bedtime.
*Sidenote: I have no idea what mainlining cocaine looks or feels like. I am making this statement based on lots and lots of television viewing.
