Things have been really good otherwise :) Last Sunday we celebrated Ryans birthday at Carmine's in Pasadena, Ryan has been going there for 9 years and I was invited to my first one 6 years ago and I love going. It is fun to have a tradition. Claire was wonderful and the grandparents were excited to hang out with her, she was passed around the table and seemed pretty happy with it. Then we we went to visit my parents for a few days that was also wonderful, it was full of visits from family friends and even a few high school ladies that I miss and had not seen in ages. Wish family lived closer and we could see them more often, going to lunch and shopping with my mom was so much fun. Then watching tv and hanging out with my dad at night was also great.
I love how many people Claire makes happy and how awesome everyone in our lives is - thank you for reaching out and making us feel so loved. I worried I would end up melting into my couch and be forgotten because I could not make it to all the activities, but it has been much easier than I thought because we have family and friends who make us a priority and we are thankful for that.
Once we got back to LB I got to do one of my favorite things - go to a haunted house! Ok, well this one was a ship Queen Mary Dark Harbor. Robin & I headed to the ship, had cocktails and yummy tacos. The mazes were pretty awesome and most were very scary. I loved it! Shout out thank you to Gma Holli & Auntie Kate for babysitting, they took her on a walk and just loved on her for the evening :) we appreciate it!
Yesterday was Ryan's sushi birthday celebration and Claire's first champagne brunch. It was so much fun, mommy had 4 glasses of champagne and paid for it for the rest of the day BUT the sushi and friend time was so great. There were 2 other babies in attendance: Hailey & Chip! What is so fun is that they are all so sweet and well behaved! I loved it! I am so thankful there are a good amount of baby friends around for Claire to play with. I can't wait for her to be more interactive with them. Oh man, the cuteness.
