2. OK, though that was the highlight of the day probably for both of us grown folk, we did do a little sightseeing afterward, since we were already out and all. Anniversaries are a different ballgame once you have kids, I tell you.
3. Alla was just excited that we let her bring along her babydoll stroller. Loaded up with two doggies and two Monchichis. Hello, 1985. Yes she's been digging instead of napping. But the question isn't "Why won't she nap?" - it's more like, "Why do I still have Monchichi's??"
4. After the yummy croissants (of which we do NOT have photos because they were absolutely inhaled), we ventured toward Minnehaha Falls, so we could cross that off our to-do list, and stopped at a new park along the way.5. Maybe this was the best part for the little girl. New stuff to navigate. 6. A photo-op with my littlest love, a fave part of the day for me. 7. We did find the Falls, after some circling and the saving grace of the iPhone. Very lovely. And then we wandered around and just took our time strolling before we loaded up the kiddos in the car to nap on the twenty minute ride home. I'm pretty sure Alla here was telling us about getting in that water with a boat. She had a plan.8. Don't you love how they love you? Unconditionally. Just love love love.9. Fisher didn't have too high an opinion of the Falls. 10. Anniversaries are a different thing with kids, I tell you again. At least with babies. One of these years we're heading on an anniversary vacation again, but for now, it seems to be celebration enough just to head out in general, to eat something new, see something new, and celebrate together as a family.
That doesn't mean we won't be doing our own thing in a few weeks when Nana+Pappi come visit:)
