Friday night started with a family-friendly 40th birthday party for our neighbor and friend, Brandon. His daughter Beatrice has become one of Mason's good friends so we were happy he was invited to the party as well. We had a great time celebrating Brandon's big day and watching the kiddos play together.
On Saturday we attended the Pfeiffer's Memorial Day pool party and it was the perfect way to start the summer. The kids had a blast on the splash deck of the Pfeiffer's awesome pool while the parents enjoyed yummy cocktails and tried keeping the kids somewhat corralled. ;) Mason finally met another redhead, Russ, that we've been dying to meet and they hit it off from the start. We were able to pry Mason away from the pool long enough to eat dinner on the patio, then distracted him with soccer and Emily's indoor toys before he made his way back to the water (30 minute rule was in place!).
We didn't mean for it to happen, but we realized that it's become tradition for us to walk around the Knox/Henderson area on Memorial Day weekend. Something just pulls us there every time. After popping in some of the shops (Froggie's was definitely Mason's favorite), we grabbed lunch on the patio of Taverna. I was a little nervous that the trendy uptown crowd would be annoyed that we had a baby on the patio, but Mason hardly made a peep and made a lot of friends wearing similar shades to him. Such a stylish little man! Sunday afternoon my dad came over to play with Mason then joined us for a steak dinner. Mason is still in love with Papa's car - so much so that when we asked him what Papa's name was he responded with "brmmm". ;)
We took a much needed day on Monday to just chill and hang out around the house. Hope everyone has a wonderful summer!
