4 Years

Since we had just spent a fun weekend away for our anniversary we kept things low key on the actual day. 

We don't always get each other gifts but Nathan surprised me with flowers, chocolate, and The Hobbit! I can't wait to see the second half....Christmas gift?

There is a little Mediterranean spot in a gas station at the end of our street. We had been told it was good so we decided to try it out. 

 We put the baby to bed and chowed down. Falafel, lamb gyro and Greek salad. Nothing disappointed. We'll be going back soon. 

Not too long ago. 

Anniversary #4 and Babymoon

We celebrated our 4th anniversary on November 14th. After our honeymoon we decided that we would go back for our 10 year anniversary. Of course, we didn't think that we would be living 2.5 hours from where we went on our honeymoon. 
My parents came up for a few days and kept our very sick baby so we could escape for 2 nights. With baby #2 coming in April we knew next year would probably be out of the question. 

We decided to try out one of the rooms in the main house this time. It was nice because we got to take advantage of some the extra's that Hartsone has going on during the afternoon and evening. All of the fun extras revolve around food. Afternoon tea and cookies, pre-dinner hors d' oevres, and night caps. 

Dinner at Hartsone the first night. I wish that I had written down what we ate. My appitizer was a butternut squash and sage butter gnocchi. I could eat a whole bowl full of it right now!. Our desserts were espresso souffle with kahlua creme anglaise and pumpkin creme brulee. 

They have the best breakfast!

We went on the same walk we did 4 years ago. The weather was lovely and it was so nice just to spend time by ourselves. 

We stopped at Fresh a really cute and yummy bakery for lunch. It reminded me a lot of Sugar Magnolia in GA. 

The pizza was tasty and the perfect ending to our 5 mile walk. 

All the boats wrapped up for winter. 

Saturday night we ate at Comida Latin Kitchen. All the food was great but their salsa verde and charred red pepper salsa was amazing! Sunday we got up early and took  a walk down to Fresh for some bread to take home with us. We ate another fantastic breakfast at Hartsone and headed home. 

It was a great weekend and we can't wait to get away again. Of course, it would have been better if George wasn't so sick but everyone survived. Thank you again to my parents for coming up and getting up multiple times a night with our sick baby.

Halloween 2013

George was pretty sick for Halloween but the Saturday before the businesses downtown have a trick-or-treat during the day. We took him last year even though he was too small. This year he was a little sheep. He was adorable!. It was a very easy costume to create, it just took a lot of hot-gluing.

This is right after I got him all dressed up. He thought it was kind of funny.

Our attempt at a group shot. 

George loves animals and he had a melt-down on the sidewalk because he couldn't stay and hangout with the mounted police horses and the dog at the jewelry store. 

George doesn't like chocolate so he stocked up on Dum Dums
