July 15, 2015 | I just love getting out of the house with E, and at this age she is loving it too. I’m always on the lookout for free events (so it’s not a big deal to jet-out in case of toddler-meltdown) and there is a shopping center by us that had free music in a large courtyard. We instantly noticed every other family had a blanket or chairs, with To-Go food for their kids. Rookies over here, we assumed we could get food at the center. Which we did, but it wasn’t the easiest to feed E! She loved the chairs, in fact she was in & out most of the time. Drinking from a big cup was also pretty awesome for her, dancing with the big kids, and playing in the water. I’m so glad a friend warned us to bring backup clothes due to the fountains! She drank my tea & loved the gelato of course. And after thinking someone around us had B.O. (seriously, why did it take so long for me to realize), we looked at each other and could hardly believe the stink was our KID. A side-street change was in order, and we were headed home. But after all the excitement & food she talked to herself in her crib until close to NINE. We all had a blast though, and can’t wait to go back!
