Our Weekend

This weekend we had a couple of visitors - hubby's parents, also known as Nana and Pop Pop.  We had tickets to Florence and the Machine for Friday night and hubby and I both really wanted to go, so they offered to stay at our house while Eliza slept that evening so we could go.

The concert was awesome. Florence was very ethereal with her long fuchsia see-through, flowy garb (she was wearing a leotard underneath) - and man, can that girl sing.  The concert was outdoors, which was extra cool.  We had a great time - we danced and ate kettle corn and had a drink.  Afterwards, on our way home (and once we confirmed that The Girl was still sleeping peacefully), we stopped at the gas station for ice cream treats - oh yes, we know how to do it up right with the gas station desserts!  Watch out for us - we're crazy.

Saturday morning, Eliza and hubby took our visitors out to breakfast at one of their favorite breakfast spots, and then they hit up the farmer's market.  Wondering what I was doing?  SLEEPING.  It was awesome.  The end.

Later on, after nap, Nana and Pop Pop offered to watch Eliza while we went to a local brewery for a big party celebrating their recent victory defeating a very old law that did not allow breweries to sell their own beer on site.  Now that the law has been changed, they can go ahead with plans to build a massive new facility that includes a restaurant and bar.

A toast to their success!  "Power of the Pint!"

Eliza had a fantastic time with her Nana and Pop Pop - she loved playing with them all afternoon.  Unfortunately it rained all day, so they had to spend the whole afternoon indoors, but they still had a great time. 

Later that evening, we ordered in and after Eliza went to bed we just chatted - my sister-in-law is recently engaged and the wedding planning has just begun so we talked a lot about that.  I'm so excited for her, and I loved planning my wedding so I look forward to lots of wedding planning discussion with her :)

On Sunday, we went to hubby's favorite local restaurant for Father's Day and then we took Eliza to a playground nearby and played until it was time for nap.  After Eliza woke up, Nana and Pop Pop had to leave.  Sadly, I totally failed in the photo department this weekend, so I don't have much to show for their visit (which is also why I needed to write about it here so I wouldn't forget!).  We did manage to snap a quick one when N&PP were on their way out, though it's not the greatest of Eliza...

See her dress?  Nana got it for her at the farmer's market - it is so cute!

It was a great weekend.  And we decided that we're going to leave Eliza with Nana and Pop Pop every time they come to visit - they had a good time bonding, and hubby and I got a nice little afternoon date.  After all, they admitted that while they like seeing us, they really come to visit to see Eliza.  But, of course, we already knew that! ;)
