It's been a while since we've enjoyed a leisurely Sunday as a family. But, Cory has been really busy with work lately and we all needed some time together (Finnley too!). As usual, Hallie let us sleep in until about 7:30...nice. Then she snuggled in bed with us and watched the news while she and Dad ate cookies (gasp!) and milk. Together they polished off 8 cookies (ahem...Cory had 7 1/2).
Then Cory and Hal had real breakfast (eggs and cantaloupe) while I ran on the treadmill. Then we played for a while in Hal's reading corner and took turns feeding Finnley pretzel bread. Finn was LOVING all the attention (read: all the pretzel bread).
After nap time we decided to head into Ft. Calhoun (the small town we live about 4 miles from) for a nice long walk. It was pretty cold, so we bundled Hallie up tight and piled a bunch of blankets over her in the stroller.
She LOVES going on a walk, so I don't think she minded the cold, but me and Cory did! The wind really picked up and the temperature dropped when were about a mile and a half from our car...so we trucked it back as fast as we could!
We decided to warm up with some Mexican food. We tried one of the new Mexican restaurants in Blair - La Vallarta. Now, our ultimate favorite Mexican food is La Mesa in Omaha, but I have to say, La Vallarta gave them a run for their money! The food was delicioso and really well priced. And the salsa was...dare I say it...BETTER than La Mesa! The margaritas weren't bad either ;)
Now, everyone is tucked snugly in bed and there's a roaring fire in the fireplace while the wind rages outside. Great day :)
