On Friday, the week ended perfectly with a quick visit with Alison, Cruz and little Delainey!

It was also great to catch up with Alison (who does not look like she just had a baby!) and Cruz.
At first, Audrey was a little shy of Cruz but she warmed up to her and thought she was pretty neat! It was interesting to see Audrey's reaction to me holding a newborn. She was definitely a little jealous (which I figured she would be). It was good practice when she dropped her sippy cup on her foot (ouch!) and I had to console a sad toddler while holding a newborn. She definitely put the drama on for that! She was pretty interested in Delainey- pointing out her little nose, feet and hands. Delainey just slept through the entire visit like a perfect newborn!
Saturday morning, after swimming, we went to Butterfield Acres for a 2 year old's birthday party. It was a little chilly out but we dressed warmly and had lots of fun.

We went on a pumpkin hunt.
The kids had a blast looking for pumpkins and Audrey just wanted to carry them all!

That night, hubby's brother and sister-in-law gracious offered to watch Audrey for the evening. We jumped at the chance for a date night! We went for dinner, Menchies for frozen yogurt and to an improv comedy show. It was a fun night! Thanks so much C & L for hanging out with Audrey!
Sunday I finally made plans to get together with an old friend who had a baby... 7 months ago! It's so hard coordinating schedules. Another friend also joined so it was great to finally meet little I and catch up with my old friends! We are so grown up now- talking mommy hood, careers, home ownership! Gone are our care-free University days!
We went to an indoor play centre close by as I knew Audrey would not sit quietly for a couple hours at a coffee shop. I had never been to TommyK Play before, although I have been to similar places. It was a great place to have a toddler run around while I caught up with my friends. Audrey had a blast climbing on the play structures, going down the slides, interacting with other kids and just running around.
