Weekend Wrap Up


Miss Sabrina is officially a huge fan of Grandma and Pap-pap. I expect her to start lobbying to move back to PA any day now. I think Grandma helped her draft the petition. My in-laws left this morning after a lovely but quick visit. Steve and I did get out sans child on Sunday afternoon. We had a lovely brunch on the patio of a local eatery and then saw the new Indiana Jones movie (verdict…not bad but not what the old franchise was). I had to pass up ice cream at my favorite place (which is right next to the movie theater) because after brunch and popcorn nothing more would fit despite my personal motto “There is always room for ice cream.”

Grandma and Pap-pap brought Sabrina a new favorite toy. A play tent!

Can you tell from her smile that she kind of likes it? I do try to keep our living room from turning into Toy R Us but I had been thinking of getting her something like this so I was happily surprised when the grandparents read my mind. And how can you resist something that makes your child smile like that?

She loves to peek out of the side windows to make sure we are paying attention.

    We got a “tent” that we kept in our bedroom. They are really nice to have during storms, so when Sabrina starts to worry about thunder and lightning, I’ll bet she’ll be pleased as punch to sleep in her little house instead of camping with you in bed.

    Everytime I see pictures of Miss S I think that she can’t get any cuter – and then she does. My heart melts everytime I see her, and she isn’t my kid!! 🙂 (and Alex loves his tent, also)

    She is so cute! And your mom looks great too – it’s good that they are a part of her life despite the distance.

    ok, how cute are steve’s parents??? and with Sabrina? I CANNOT STAND THE CUTENESS!

    I’m so glad Miss S has a PeeTee to call her own. I’m really not sure how we ever survived without one! 🙂

    So are you finding that you laugh at the dumbest crap while pregnant? Have you met Tina?


    She is like a my space superstar. My babysitter told me I “had” to watch her videos!

    Great to catch up finally with how you have been doing/feeling. So great that you guys got a little break on Sunday! And Sabrina, you can tell, had a blast to boot.
