“Table for five!” – I’ve been waiting to say that for 10 months. Unfortunately for me, Liberty Market in downtown Gilbert is seat yourself. Doh. But we did venture out to breakfast as a party of five for the first time today. Nolan did amazing.
Well, he didn’t cry. He did have a blow out though and ten minutes after we sat down, I found myself walking swiftly to the bathroom with a baby in my arms and poop on my jeans asking the first employee I could find “Please tell me there is a baby changing table in the bathroom!” There was. Thankfully. Some restaurants don’t have changing tables, which drives me insane. This one did, so we were in the clear.
We played, “I spy” at the breakfast table. It was so cute because Colton would say, “I spy a black tee shirt on dad.” Kelsey and I would laugh and laugh. He started getting the hang of it though – for his next turn he said, “I spy a pink shirt.” So, that’s closer.
After breakfast, we walked around downtown Gilbert for a bit. The area has so much history and charm. Most of the restaurants are new, but they really blend into the historic neighborhood nicely. The kids found a splash pad directly under the Gilbert water tower. I’d say that was the highlight of their morning.
And, ours too! As Ryan and I were able to use the water tower to our advantage. “If you don’t sit nicely and use your manners at breakfast, you can’t go play in the water.” It worked like a charm.
A fun morning with a really fun group of people. My people.
While the other two kids were busy playing in the water, I looked over and saw Ryan looking ever-so-closely at baby Nolan. I’m with Ryan on this one … I could stare at Nolan all day too.
I don’t know about you, but I’d say Colton is really enjoying himself here. Ah, yes – two. year. olds.
Look at him looking around! He is getting so aware. For only five weeks old, he is sure looking so much older. We love you little man, so much! You’re such a chill baby.
Hello, there fall. We actually feel like we found you today. Pumpkins, cool morning air and people wearing sweaters. Although, we’re still in shorts but we’ll consider this progress.
