Hey everyone! How was your weekend? Yeah, I know it’s already Tuesday evening. What can I do, time just flies…
My weekend was fabulous!
We spent Saturday hanging out at the playground, snacking on Timmie’s (bagel, coffee and donut) and our little guy tried the swings for the first time. The verdict: he’s a little skeptical..
And then I spent my Sunday running with almost 50 000 people. Official time for my 2nd Vancouver Sun Run: 1:05:48.8 No personal record, but I’m proud of myself regardless!
After the race I met up with my two guys (one of them napping in the Beco…) for fuel – I was starving!!!
We ended up at Noodle Box, which has become one of my favourites lately… I had what I always have:
You can choose your spicyness and your protein (chicken/pork/beef/tofu, shrimp, or free range chicken), and usually I always get shrimpies. This time I decided to switch things up and I got the free range chicken. It was good, but I think I prefer the shrimps over chicken. I really love that they offer free range chicken (for a little bit extra, though), so people that think it’s worth spending a little extra on it can do so, but those that are fine with regular meat do not have to pay extra.
The Mr. got a Thai Green Curry:
Another plus of Noodle Box is that they’re super kid-friendly! High chairs, changing table, and a lot of space to park a stroller make it a great spot to go to as a family.
After our lunch we walked around the city and Seawall for a bit, grabbed some coffee (and a Chocolate Hazelnut Mountain at Bojangles…) and when it was time for (early) dinner, both of us were craving authentic, Italian, thin crust pizza like crazy people.
Incendio it was!
We are sooooo predictable… :-p Of course we had to have Gorgonzola on our pizza!
The little man had a long day, getting up earlier than usual, hanging out with daddy for a few hours, teething, and being scared of the restaurant’s ceiling fans, so first he took a little nap in mommy’s arms and then he decided it was time to go home.
The restaurant staff was great, bringing us a high chair and a little kiddie cup of water (which I drank). It would be so great if they had a changing table somewhere, considering they are very kid friendly with high chairs, and even have a kids menu.
OK, time for me to realize it’s a new week. There’s meal planning, exercise planning, grocery shopping, our first Gymboree class, mom & baby yoga and more on our list.
Have a great week and see you soon!
