Friday night was an ever-exciting trip to Costco, where we loaded up our cart with new tupperware. (Life gets more and more exciting with each passing year... We were seriously excited to come home and replace our drawer full of mis-matched containers for new ones!)
Saturday morning we went to the Farmers Market as per usual, which I am really going to miss at the end of October when it closes for the season. We picked up some fresh carrots and beans, and munched on a still-warm cinnamon bun. Soren made friends with two little girls who were totally taken with him, one of whom picked him up and tried to carry him several times. He didn't mind a bit!
We got a last minute invite to a friends house for dinner, and I had to turn around on the way there because we'd forgotten Soren's playpen. We went back for it, which made for a lovely evening for us! He was great at our friends house minus a little incident with a stuffed buffalo that made noises... let's just say we've never seen Soren SCARED before and it is the saddest thing. Apparently the kid does not like buffalos, or at least ones that make noise. Bringing a playpen with us is fabulous, because he slept in their guest room while we enjoyed a delicious feast of lamb, kale, and 'the best mashed potatoes I have ever eaten' according to Tyler.
Sunday was spent building forts, checking out some ducks, attempting to sew baby leg warmers (pictures to come once I verify they fit the babe), watching football (not me), baking muffins, and
Ralph Lauren and the cardigan is an oldie from H & M.
