Thursday we went to the zoo with some friends:
Me: "Hey Bennett are you driving a tractor?!"
B: "No mom I can't. It's broken."
He really wanted to see the elephants:
B got his first big haircut:
(he was getting mistaken for a girl daily, but don't worry it's still cute and shaggy)
Friday night Chris and I celebrated my birthday a little early.
We went to a new (to us) restaurant called Portobello.
It's actually a vegan restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised at how tasty everything was.
For an appetizer we got the Beet Tartare:
(this was amazing and I'm going to attempt to recreate it at home soon!)
For dinner we split the Deep Dish Pie with arugala salad and the Potato Gnocchi:
and for dessert we got Tirimisu:
On Saturday we just hung around the house and played:
(I got to sneak out during nap time for a pedicure!)
On Sunday we celebrated my birthday with Chris' side of the family.
We grabbed lunch at a fun little burger place and then got fro yo.
Afterwards, Chris, the boys and I swung by Costco on our way home to pick up my birthday present:
I can honestly say that we are obsessed with this machine and have probably used it ten times in the last two days!
Last night I got together with some friends to celebrate a couple of our birthdays.
Love my friends!
And today I turned 29.
Also, we are painting the house this weekend!!!
I can't wait to see how it turns out!
