Fall festival

This week went really fast because of Monday holiday and friday off from work. I love short weeks, it makes me so much more productive and I got more time to spend with my favorite people ๐Ÿ™‚

Monday after nap we took Sofia to her favorite playground. While Tony played with her, I got to do errands.

Saturday morning was swimming lesson for Sofia and Tony, while I organized the house. It is a nice break for me. In the afternoon, we went to our friend Fernando’s house for an authentic argentinian asodo. He prepared a lot of meat for us!

food was ready at 6pm (yeah~ once you have kids, dinning outside the house means dinning at 6pm!). We had beef skirt, spicy and chicken sausages

It was a lovely meal… chatting with my two grad school friends over meat and wine.

Once home, Sofia decided to give me a private “concert” ๐Ÿ˜‰ so cute with the mic she made for herself

Sunday we headed out early to the Fall festival at Cox Farm. We were surprised to find a lot of parked car even before the opening time. But as long as we entered the place, it all made senses. There were a lot of activities for kids… Sofia played several times swings

I made a new kind of bread: bagel bread! As the title says, it’s between bread and bagel, quite unique. It’s more than half gone! ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a lovely weekend, full of activities. Although I get tired easily and often time just want to stay at home on weekends to rest, but I always feel better when we go outdoor. Maybe it’s the sun, the blue sky, the fresh air, or Sofia’s smiles, that make me much more fulfilling. ๐Ÿ™‚ Winter is approaching, we really need to go out as much as we can. When snow arrives, we will be stuck at home by force. ๐Ÿ™‚
