Food, drink, and nature. I love the first warm night in the spring when we ask to be seated outdoors at a restaurant. Some of the best afternoons Kevin and I have had were just sitting outside with a drink and some appetizers either at a bar/restaurant, winery, or even out in our backyard. I've definitely missed these afternoons over the past year- I wasn't drinking, and even if I would have had a glass I would have been too uncomfortable sitting out all afternoon when I was nearing the end of my pregnancy. We did go out to some nice dinners right before CJ was born- so I got my "foodie" fill. After a couple of months of living off of food in the freezer and taking turns holding the baby while the other eats the meal, I can now enjoy a glass of wine here and there (in nicer weather no less) and we can take CJ out to places. I am also cooking much more. Saturday Kevin grilled salmon and I made a chile lime sauce and mac salad from the Dinosaur BBQ cookbook (one of our favorite restaurants up in Syracuse).
We had one of the staff members take a family picture.
Today for the first time in over a week I was able to go out for a walk with CJ. I'm just loving these nice days! We walked by some interesting bushes on the way so those are today's pictures.
