We had a most exciting and spontaneous weekend where I dragged my still-dragging behind (who am I kidding, I was thrilled to go) to a beer festival while my mom watched MiniM.E. Then Sunday my mom drove us to Albany Med to visit our neighbor who just had surgery, and we left from there to drive to CT to see my cousins 6-week old baby. Sound crazy? It was. We didn't even get there until 4pm. But some socializing, baby-holding, and a dinner out later, we'd had a good time meeting BabyL. and got back in the car to drive home. It was a ton of driving (fortunately MiniM.E. slept through most of it), but a fun adventure.
Monday and Tuesday we went to our usual activities and my mom helped with MiniM.E. while I got stuff done around the house.
And today I am fighting cold #2 and MiniM.E. is a wreck, but we managed to make our first visit of the season to Sunnyside Gardens.
MiniM.E. was happy to be out of the house and really enjoyed the train ride, the pumpkin patch and the hayride. We'll definitely be visiting again before the end of the season.
We even recreated this photo from last year:
