Memorial Day 2013 (& Lil Love Bird's 1 Year Weaning Anniversary)

Her face sums up how I'm feeling!
Something about long holiday weekends make me tired! Do you feel like that? Plus it's been on-again, off-again rain and cold for the whole of "spring" here in NYC, and I definitely think that has something to do with my recent lethargy.

We kicked the holiday weekend off with date night . . .

Star Trek is hands down the best movie of the year - IMAX 3D is a must!
Followed by some fun daddy/daughter moments . . .


Stopped by the Sweet Spot Festival  . . .


Thank you Foster Grant for Mr. Love Bird's sunglasses! (full review to come . . .)



Annnnd I have to mention it's Nia's 1 year wean-a-versery - the past year has flown by, and it really wasn't until this past February when she spent over a week with her cousins that her eating finally became normal. Before then, she'd peck over everything like a little bird and since then she's been eating consistently and packing on the pounds (or the "heft" as we call it). I've Instagrammed how she's still obsessed with boobs and loves to put her hand down my shirt and part of me is curious what will happen in the distant, far-off future when (perhaps, maybe, someday) she has a sibling and sees him or her nursing. Will she get jealous? I'm in no way anxious to find out, but I am curious . . .

Anyway, perhaps my favorite Memorial Day weekend was when we went to Arlington National Cemetery. It really was moving and something I highly recommend doing at least once in your life. You can see our visit here

 

P.S. We had a bit of a scare yesterday when someone threw something lit down the trash chute causing a small fire and interrupting our eating festivities and our first guest's visit - we hope we didn't scare her away! LOL! Thankfully, everything was fine, but it definitely threw us off (and Nia enjoyed seeing the firetrucks).
