these are the adventures we had this past weekend...

friday night is date night for Chris and I.
we get a babysitter and usually try a new restaurant or see a movie.

last friday we went to a new restaurant called "little big burger."
I guess you could say it's in the same category as in'n'out/five guys but it appeals more to the portland crowd who like to know what they are eating.
local/natural beef, and whaa? I can get blue cheese on my burger?!
quality ingredients at a fast food place...imagine that.

I've heard it's always crowded, but it's worth the wait.
no I don't know that couple. they wanted to pose for my picture though.

simple menu:

we sat at the bar and watched them make our food,
no frozen patties in sight!:

their very own ketchup, fry sauce and mustard(not pictured):
(made in portland and you can pronounce all of the ingredients!!!)

we each got a burger and split an order of fries (yukon gold+truffle oil=delectable):
(if your husband is a bottomless pit, he may want to order this much just for himself since they are 4oz burgers)

recycling and composting is cool:
amazing root beer float:
(dip the fries in the ice cream. you won't regret it.)

lots of people but they were super quick:

there are sweet graphic paintings on the walls.
this one is in the long hallways leading to the bathroom:
after we ate, chris lovingly waited in anthropologie's dressing room while I tried on a few things. he sure knows how to wine and dine me :) I scored some super comfy fleece leggings on sale for $8.50! hooray!

we then walked up a few blocks to grab coffee/hot chocolate at stumptown and chatted and laughed at the obnoxious drunk girl in the ace lobby.
and I turned into a gangsta:

saturday morning chris woke up with awesome hair:

it was sunny on saturday so we spent a majority of the day walking around outside.
we played a bit in the park down the street:

and we showed bennett how to use his new dump truck:
(he was making truck sounds and we didn't even teach him to!)
then we took some pictures:

sunday night we went over to craig and lauren's for homemade pizza night.
marley and bennett shared their toys. they pretty much love eachother:

bennett has been walking (finally) for a few weeks now!
he started right when he turned 16 months, which is pretty late in the game.
here's a little video of us from the park:

    So fun! I love date nights. Today Ian and I went to Bridgeport and we got lunch at this place called "Joe's Burgers." It was pretty good! We must try this place though! And that family picture of you guys is so adorable!

    I love Bennett's little walk :)

    Also, you are so gangsta!

    Bennett is so freaking cute! I love the pictures of Marley & Bennett and I love Lauren's story of how Marley shared her toys.
    Your date night looks divine!
    Also, thanks for helping to give me the hope that I'll be stronger once we have kids!

    Your weekend sounds wonderful! Isn't Little Big Burger amazing, and those fries, delicious! I went there for the first time a few weeks ago and can't wait to go back!

    haha!! this made me laugh out loud.... i love that you linked to "our" blog when talking about bottomless pit husbands. haha! i love my polar bear husband :). little big burger looks so delicious...maybe we'll have to have a girls date there sometime, since i'm not sure i can convince craig to eat something that small...although i actually think they look pretty decent sized.

    i love you guys and your cute cute family. you guys make me happy :).
