We’ve been on this crazy ride since May started, and I don’t see it ending any time soon… so much going on with the kids school, and Mother’s Day and now just a gorgeous weekend, and throw in the fun we have with crazy, smart kids – and it’s impossible to keep up.
Mother’s Day was the tail end of a Jacob sore throat and fever, so we didn’t want to do too much… we woke up with pastries and presents and kisses and then went for a walk/bike around Lake Hollywood. Then we come home to rest a bit and spent the afternoon at Bar Bouchon, having champagne and snacks and then taking Mol for ice cream and Jacob to poke through a toystore. Treats for everyone! It was a lovely, relaxing, perfect day.
We also had open house at school, where we saw all the amazing things the kids have been working on, including a performance, in Spanish, of The THree Little Pigs. First they sang some songs for us:
Then today we had a perfect, sunny Sunday. We hit Palisades for the farmers market, and then brought all our goodies (juice and cherries and peaches and croissants) up to Will Rogers for a picnic, polo watching and hike filled afternoon!
While Jacob and I were watching one of the matches, Mol needed some Daddy time, so they went for a walk and he got these cute pics. Speaking of cute, we got Jacob’s official tball pictures yesterday and they are super cute. This isn’t it, but it’s a cute one I took at the photoshoot, to give you an idea…
I mentioned they’re awesome kids right? They blew us away the other night by wanting to play restaurant. They named it (Souvenir), made menus, dressed up as waiter and chef (Chef Mol had to wear lipstick because “it is a fancy restaurant”), took our orders, served us (food I had made earlier and left plated int eh kitchen) then they presented us with a bill, money they had made to pay the bill (complete with serial numbers) and a receipt. So much fun.
Did I mention we just started playing Monopoly? The funny thing is, the only version we have is a James Bond one I gave Chuck ages ago. So Molly is always the logo, Jacob is the airplane, and it’s pretty adorable…
