A Wonderful Weekend

Our weekend was great. We got to go out twice without Henry!!! Hooray. For the first time ever we left Henry with a real babysitter. We've left him with the neighbors a few times when mine and Taylor's work and school schedules overlapped, but we actually planned something on Friday and arranged a babysitter. Our wonderful British friend and somewhat close neighbor Antionette watched Henry, we met Antionette out walking at the park when it was still warm and we have been friends ever since. Anyway, Taylor and I had tickets to take a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright House here in Buffalo, and we quite liked it.

This is a picture of the House (taken during some warm summer month). It is just up the street from our house. We decided to walk there, and I nearly froze to death. It was -15 on Friday with the windchill.



Then on Saturday we went to the temple in Palmyra. Luckily our friends the Moellers were going and they had family in town who agreed to watch our kids while we went to the temple. Thank You Moellers! It was much better than the baby swap we did last time. It was freezing in Palmyra!!! The drive is only about 75 minutes from here, and we will take anyone there who comes to visit!


And lastly here is the world's cutest baby in a bow tie. He had his doctor visit on Friday, and he is in the 85-90 percentile for everything. The first thing the doctor said was, "he is one big baby." He eats like crazy. We hear people complain about feeding their kids and how its like pulling teeth to get them to eat cereal and such, but this kid will eat anything. His personal favorite right now is anything with marinara sauce.

I actually did post that recipe a while back, but if you are like Leisy then you may be too wimpy to try it because it is not the healthiest thing out there. But it's worth it!

How nice to get two dates without the babe! I always try to get Steve to go to the temple with me, but it usually makes him cranky. :) I think we do better to go on our own.
I love the little man Hank. Dressing up little boys really can be fun.

I thought the previous pic of Henry in his rocking chair was super cute, but add the bowtie and it's now beyond cute! I love babies in their church suits, they look like little men!

That's the one.

I looked at this picture of Henry and though, "oh he is so Laney!" (minus the chubs, of course.) And then I showed it to Rick and he said, "He looks just like Taylor!"

So I guess he's a mix.

Henry is darling, as usual. Love your rocking chairs. And I am SO jealous of your Frank Lloyd Wright tour!! So cool. We loved the PBS documentary on him awhile back. Fascinating. And brrr.... that temple picture is freezing cold just to look at.

He is so cute. I love the part about the teething biscuits. True that about eating them before a bath!
