Weekend fun

Happy Monday! It's a rainy, dreary day here this morning and I wish I was tucked into bed for a long lazy morning in bed. But let's be honest - that never happens, so I guess I shouldn't wish for it! 

I had a nice birthday evening on Thursday, celebrating with pizza, wine and a Seahawks win! The "kids" (aka Grant) got me pretty flowers which still look bright and cheery on our table. 

I was treated by my parents to a chocolate chip cookie pie with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Mmmmm. 

Saturday morning the kids took over the bed (along with "Megan," Lila's baby (if you can spot her) to snuggle and watch videos on our phones. 

My mom and I had a little shopping day that afternoon and enjoyed some amazing cappuccinos. I don't normally order these, but with rich foamy milk topped with raw sugar and cinnamon, I'm a fan! I probably wouldn't order this from Starbucks, but from a cute cafe yes please! 

Sunday we left the boys at home and Lila and I headed downtown to the Seattle Center for a play at the Seattle Children's Theater. Lila's finally the minimum age for three of this season's shows so we bought season tickets with a few friends and I was particularly excited because my mom and I used to go there when I was a kid. 

The theater is right under the Space Needle so it was fun to go early for lunch and some great people watching. 

Here's Lila ready for her first play! She wasn't quite sure what to expect and I think thought we were just going somewhere to play, but she understood right away and had so much fun watching. 

For all you parents, we saw a play called "Elephant & Piggie" based on the Elephant & Piggie books - they turned it into a musical and merged the stories from all of the books together. It was SO cute and we had to buy a few of the books in the gift shop after. 

Hope you had a great weekend!!

    Michael and I went to a play at SCT last year. We were the only ones there without children hahaha. We just wanted to do something Christmas-y and couldn't afford big people plays so we went. :) People probably thought we were weirdos.
