Great Day for Up!

Way back before we had baby Bro... Dear Husband and I would often sometimes take advantage of a gorgeous afternoon and meet at the harbor for Happy Hour.

A recent afternoon was just to gorgeous to spend in the confines of our suburban home... so we took the little man to hang out with us in one of our favorite towns.

I discovered a new Crepe restaurant (Sofi's Crepes) and we ate there as a family. This restaurant was rated the at the "top of the list" for affordable fare in the area (meaning, you get lots of bang for your buck here).

Bro and I shared the B.A.T.S. (bacon, avocado, tomato, and sour cream) while Dear Husband had the Mozz (tomato, mozzarella, and basil). It was so yummy! They have dessert crepes too!

I'm so upset at all of the cute baby pictures that my friends capture (ahem - Bird's Nest... and a whole slew of facebook friends). How cute would this have been... if only he would smile. THIS is the typical response that I get when I try to take his picture. I couldn't resist. I cannot WAIT to show this to his future wife.

I thought that letting him stand on the bench would get a smile out of him... right????? NO.

I swear... if I did NOT have the camera out he would have been all smiles. Infuriating.

He calmed down when he thought that mommy put the camera away.

And then Bro and Daddy contemplated the meaning of life.

Then, we went to the park where he was WAY TOO BUSY to smile for mommy... too busy playing with dirt...

... too busy climbing on rocks...

... too busy flirting with the ladies...

... but I was persistent and got a good picture anyway! (Look at him, I'm standing RIGHT THERE and he refuses to look at me... maddening!)

Hahaha, those are great! For every one I get of her smiling, looking at the camera...I won't even tell you how many I don't show ;) Thanks for the link, btw :)

I LOVE crepes, but I swear the only place to get them here is Village Inn...maybe I just don't know where to look...
