Happy Tuesday! I had an extra long weekend with my father-in-law in town (he arrived on Friday and leaves tonight). We spent most of his visit hanging out with Violet :) He showered her with attention and held her almost the whole time. I took advantage of our time with a babysitter and gave myself a pedicure, took a few naps, caught up on my magazines, and got a haircut. The weather was pretty warm so we spent a lot of time outdoors walking around our neighborhood.
One of my favorite part about having family visit is introducing them to our favorite restaurants #allaboutthefood. We got sandwiches from Queen Street Grocery (my favorite) and tried a new (to us) spot: Persimmon Cafe. H loveddd his chicken curry sandwich but unfortunately I wasn't impressed with their roasted chicken sandwich. It was packed with chicken, but it was pretty bland. On Sunday walked around on King Street and got salads from Verde. Locals: you have to try their spinach salad with strawberries, feta, avocado, pecans, and croutons -- it's delicious!
In other news -- Little miss Violet is a month old today! And we received a wonderful health update over the weekend. On Friday she had a echo heart scan with a pediatric cardiologist, and her heart is just fine! H and I are sooo happy and relieved that she doesn't require any follow-up appointments. (I took it as a good sign that the doctor's office had my favorite Dr. Seuss quote on the wall!) And yesterday at her four week check-up we were happy to hear that she is right on track in the growth dept. :)
How was your weekend?
