Weekend Links

birthday weekend This photo was taken just about one year ago! Henry looks so, so small.

Happy weekend! Yesterday we had a playdate at our house (4 toddlers are quite the wild bunch!) and then had a fun double date with our friends and our kiddos at one of our favorite Mexican spots. I stayed up way too late watching Parenthood while Hank had band practice/a night out with his friends, so this morning I was exhausted but still had a great time out and about. We went on a long walk and did the Farmer's Market with Veronica and Max, I have a hair appointment in thirty minutes (lighter? shorter? maybe!), we have some bike riding planned for tonight, and then tomorrow we'll be at a block party downtown to benefit the Whiskey Row fires. Busy, busy. But it's a good kind of busy!

Tomorrow morning I'll be posting a recipe that Henry (and we) absolutely love, so keep your eyes peeled. Have a great Saturday!
