Cook Forest Trip
We are back in NYC tonight after spending a long weekend in the woods of PA.
I think I can speak for OB when I say hiking through the woods is one of our favorite hobbies. That dog and I are happiest when we’re in the woods…or at the Ritz. Our perfect day would include a morning run, a day spent hiking through the woods and room service at a luxury hotel.
And while Dave ran 13.1 miles I ate my body weight in these Butterfinger peanut butter cups.
Speaking of being a mom…Atlas had a play date while we were in PA. Turns out, we’ve got some work to do when it comes to my kid’s social skills.
Some of Dave’s college pals brought their adorable 9 month old, Rowan, down to visit and while we had so much fun chatting with them, Atlas was not a good playmate for sweet Rowan. Rowan is the happiest go-lucky little baby boy you will ever meet and every time he giggled or made any noise Atlas immediately let out a scream.
On a positive note, Atlas was much better during our car trip home. There was a lot less crying during this trip (during our December trip to Cook Forest Atlas screamed for 95% of the car ride).
These 2 were the only ones smiling during the clean up process…probably because they weren’t the ones doing the cleaning up.
Being the awesome mom I am though, I was resourceful and when we ran out of toys to play with I let Atlas play with diapers.
It was a great trip filled with family and friends, but after that messy car ride it will be a looooong time before we take another trip….or 6 weeks….because that is when we leave for our next trip. I’ll be prepared with multiple changes of clothes in the diaper bag for that 1 though (for me and Atlas).
And on that note, I’m off to bed. I hope you have a happy hump day, friends! 🙂
