We had the best Monday. Ivan had the day off so we spent the morning being lazy (rotating naps, hanging out in our pjs..). It was supposed to pour all day but the weather had a change of heart and instead the day was absolutely beautiful. Warm and breezy. Mid-afternoon we decided to head to the park and just chill out on our favorite lawn before heading out to dinner. I packed up our diaper bag, snacks, and the kids new favorite toys from Rose & Rex.
Lillie is obsessed with her Horse & Carriage and has been playing with it for weeks. Pushing it around while she crawls as well as chewing on it and banging it around when she gets excited ;). It doesn’t hurt that it’s absolutely beautiful and is one of the few toys that I actually don’t mind leaving out in the living room. Lucas also loves to put his Ninja Turtles inside the carriage..so basically wins all around for both kids. The Treasure Hunter’s Kit is amazing. It includes a treasure map, notepad/pencil, a magnifying glass, and Lucas’s favorite – treasuressss (gold coins, pyrite, and mica). He spent the afternoon writing down “notes” and collecting goodies to put in his treasure box. Rose & Rex has an amazingly curated toy selection and you can also shop by activity and age level, which I love.
The kids both had an amazing afternoon as did Ivan and I. We left the park just as the breeze was picking up and we made it to one of our favorite local restaurants just as we were all reaching “hangry” type levels. I enjoyed a glass of rosé after nursing Lillie and we chowed down before getting the kids ready for bed. A perfect Monday. xx
