HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jeff!
was fun and eventful...Ashlyn and I spent the last 10 hours hanging
out with Patti, Grace, Lauren, and Baby Taylor! We had a nice long
lunch at Pasta Pomodoro in Irvine....newly opened at the Oak Creek
Plaza, I found out that it's the first one to be opened in Southern
California. Hard to imagine since Southern Cali seem to have ALL the
restaurants! After lunch, we walked around the plaza...ducking into
Tall Mouse Crafts, Pure Beauty, and Sonshine Books. We went back to
Grace's, and after putting all three babies down for a nap, Patti,
Grace, and I sat around, shared a huge bowl of Ben & Jerry's,
ask me how, but we spent nearly TWO hours in Babies "R"
Us! CRAZY! I looked at some umbrella strollers...but nothing was more
light in weight than the stroller I already have. I bought Ashlyn
some clothes...she's getting pretty tall and all her pants are floodin'.
At the register, I was shocked to find out that all the clothes I
selected were 50% off! Kickass! =D
Since Aric had school tonight, I ended up staying at Grace's for dinner. We had Korean BBQ and BiBimBap. Mmmmmm! Ashlyn had a great time playing with all of Lauren's toys. Ashlyn's really learning to walk now. Everyday her attempt at walking becomes more steady with increasing steps. Soon, I tell ya!...soon! =D
Ashlyn and I got home around 11pm. Aric greeted us at the driveway and carried his sleepy baby to bed. Though I had a great time, I'm pretty pooped! I just realized that I missed my 2-hour "Dawson's Creek" special...but ya know what? I don't mind...today (and night) was well worth it. =D
