Beautiful Weekend

Mr. Mustard had to work both days this weekend, but we still managed to have a wonderful weekend anyway!

Today we started off the day by going to church, which always seems to start the day off on the right foot for me. Paprika was great. Last time we went, Mr. Mustard took her to the nursery and played with her because she was really fussy, but today she did just fine. I did walk the aisles a bit with her when she started to get tired. Then, the second that we got in the car to go home, she fell asleep in her carseat.

We decided to take that as a sign to enjoy a nice drive in our new car. We drove up PCH, stopped at La Salsa to pick up some yummy burritos and quesadillas, and then went to our favorite park overlooking the ocean in Malibu. To say it was gorgeous would be an understatement. I wish I would have brought my camera, because it was just breathtaking- truly incredible. We ate at a picinic table overlooking the crashing waves and then went for a short hike. Afterwards we thought out loud to ourselves that maybe we should look into moving to Malibu before too long. I love it there. Afterwards, Mr. Mustard went back to work, but it was so nice to spend the morning and early afternoon together.

Yesterday, Mr. Mustard worked a lot of hours, but came home for a lunch break, which was great. I made lunch and we just enjoyed the time together, hanging out and playing with Paprika.

Friday was Paprika's 6 month birthday. We ceremoniously started her on solid foods, but she politely refused. I prepared some delicious avocado for her as her very first food, but she wouldn't open her mouth and kept pushing my hand away. Maybe we'll try again in a few weeks. For right now, she seems to be doing just fine being exclusively breastfed. And it's nice not having to do extra dishes, too!
