We had a wonderful holiday weekend with family in town — tons of amazing food, great weather, long walks and man, were we sad to see them head back to California. But hopefully we’ll see them again before fall arrives.
This is how Ezra gazes at his Aunt. He is smitten! And it was so fun to see him so enamored.
On their first morning in town, they wanted to hit up Hell’s Kitchen for breakfast. Amazing tastes, these two.
And after breakfast, we headed over to First Avenue for some obligatory photos.
This kid now doesn’t really want to be held or ride in a stroller. He prefers to walk most of the time. Or run. Or get dangerously close to traffic, or close to cliffs or close to rivers. It’s not unnerving at all.
Sunday, the weather was magnificent, so we (and the rest of the metro area) headed over to Minnehaha Falls. Oh, I do love it there.
On Monday, we started the day walking around Lake Harriet. We decided to to see how Ezra felt about dipping his toes into the lake. The water was quite lovely, but I think he was even more fascinated by the nearby kids who were building sand castles. So later, we went to Target and picked up a shovel and bucket for the beach. How much fun does this boy have in his future?!
And we ended the weekend by cleaning up the house and dishes, and this little helper sure makes me smile. Oh, I wish every weekend could be this much fun!
