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 🙂
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!
He has a 11 months old boy, Sofia got to play his toys
and gave him a lot of kisses. Poor boy… couldn’t say no.
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
we also had asado and lamb
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” 😉 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
posing for pics
and high long slides!!! She loved them.
after few slides, she asked for food and we got fresh made apple cider donuts
we already had hayride
there were a lot of surprises along the way… including superman “rescuing” us.
more playing with trucks
by 12:30pm we were ready to head home… someone was really tired
Food this week was random…. I didn’t have plan because it was just 3 days. Monday we had kale salad, kabocha curry soup and mussels
tuesday we had sautéed okra with black fungus and dry shrimp, edamame with preserve greens, tomato salad and oatmeal
Wednesday: steamed tilapia, sauteed greens and sauteed mung bean sprout with green pepper.
Sunday lunch: salad + empanadas
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! 🙂
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. 🙂 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. 🙂
