It took us about an hour but we got everyone fed, dressed, and ready to leave the house on Saturday. The weather was fantastic for spring in Colorado Springs and snow was in the forecast so even though the amount of energy spent getting all parties involved headed in the same direction at the same time was a bit ridiculous, it was worth the effort in the end. It usually is.
We walked/scooted to a relatively new coffee shop, Fifty Fifty Coffee House, in our neighborhood that is officially my favorite in town. Their lattes and americanos are the best we've had in awhile and they have some great treats and breakfast food. The decor is kind of minimalist meets vintage meets Kinfolk magazine and it's always got a handful of students mixed in with middle-aged clientele. It's got a great atmosphere and the owner and employees are always friendly to us and sweet to our kids. Also, their couch is kind of iconic.
Brett and I sipped our coffees while our kids literally made themselves at home. Ruby had to introduce herself and bear hug all the dogs on the patio while our seriously untalkative son chatted for almost half an hour at a guy on the couch. I say at because Sebastian wasn't leaving much room for a two-way conversation. The guy was sweet about it and assured us he was fine with it and had a little brother himself. It was fun to overhear a few of the things Sebastian told him about our family. Smith slept through most of our visit snuggled up in my wrap which was just fine with me.
After awhile we walked across the street to Sebastian's old school and let the kids burn off some steam before heading home. The first few hints of spring were on the trees and it was so refreshing to get out in the sunshine as a family. I wouldn't hate it at all if we made it part of our Saturday routine.
I hope your weekend was lovely.
P.S. Wrap c/o Solly Baby. It's the fourth wrap I've owned and my favorite for this age. If you're in the market for one I can 100% recommend it. I've worn it almost every day these last two weeks. It's become a necessity for making dinner and lets me feel a little bit less restless when Smith won't let me put him down.
