Insta Recap - Week of 7.29.13

Monday morning Manny woke up with a wicked case of bedhead. He looked in the mirror and said, "I don't want Manny's hair like this. I want to be a boy!" Made me SO sad. But then I asked him if he wanted to get a haircut and he said NO, so I guess the curls are safe for now. Whew. 

MB was having a bit of a rough day, so we facetimed with my niece Gabi as that usually makes ANY day better. Poor Sissy Priss still couldn't be perked up and just couldn't shake her Tommy Boy cry face.

My sister Jenny came to hang out with us for a few days, so on Wednesday we headed to a local water park.

We had a GREAT time, and the kids loved the lazy river! MB kept trying to dive off my lap head first. Girlfriend has no fear. Which my parents so lovingly like to remind me they once knew someone like that. :)

We had so much fun hanging out with Aunt Jen!

On Thursday we did a little shopping. MB has started taking an interest in my phone. She doesn't want it to play on it or watch things, but she likes to pretend she's talking on it. Seriously?

That night, my sister insisted Patrick and I go on a date while she kept the kids. Don't have to tell me twice! :)

It was quite comical when I came out of my bedroom dressed and the kids both came racing over to me. It's like they saw I was dressed in real clothes and panicked, knowing that meant I was about to leave.

On Friday morning, we met Megan and Eli at a local museum to let the boys play in the children's area. Manny is quite the hipster these days! He loves to lead Eli around like a boss. Who am I kidding - he loves to lead ANYONE around. Including Maeva, whom he tries to convince she's a horse and fashion a "lead rope" out of the closest thing he can find to make do, which is usually one of my exercise bands that he seems to find no matter where I hide it. Have to watch this one closely!

Friday afternoon called for a FaceTime date with Gabi. Manny asks to go see her all the time, and since that's not realistic, we're very thankful for Facetime! Would you look at how he just gazes at her? He loves his Gabbers.

Saturday was Patrick's birthday, and the main thing he wanted was to go to brunch at a new restaurant called Whiskey Cake. He is OBSESSED (to put it mildly) with their chicken & waffles. Such a weird combo but yes it's good. I don't have the love affair with it that he does, but I did like it.

We had some friends join us too and had a great time! And I love that Eli wanted to get sunglasses like Manny. :)

And I have to save the best for last. When I was picking out a birthday card for Patrick, Manny asked what I was doing. When I told him, he wanted to pick one out too. I'd already picked one up from the kids, but decided I should let him pick his own since he wanted to. Well he is obsessed with donkeys, so when he saw this one he insisted on it. I tried to persuade him otherwise, but nothing could draw him away from the "donkey card". He loves it SO much and is still talking about his "special special" card for daddy.  I decided to let the language slide since he can't read yet, and Patrick couldn't have loved the card more. Such a fun memory. :)


  1. Aww they are both so cute! And the curls are SO precious!

  2. The chicken and waffles thing totally cracked me up! My husband works for Frito Lay and recently they had a customer choice thing where people got to choose what kinds of chips were made. Chicken and waffles was won of the winners. HA! Apparently people love it?? not me! ha! Love the photos and your fam is too cute!
