jamie's gone

well, i guess the reality of father's day made jamie run for the hills. he skipped the country today. just kidding. i mean, he really did leave the county, he'll be gone for a whole week! he had to go for work. i don't mind, except for the fact that we are now only 5 weeks away from our due date and who knows what could happen!

i really wanted him to have a special father's day weekend. on saturday i asked him what he wanted to do, and he said "go to the beach!" so we packed up and headed out. it normally takes about 45 minutes to get to jones beach from our place, saturday it took 2 hours! that was the start of the kind of day we had... we actually planned to go to this beach we found just north of jones called cedar beach. we thought it was a free, public beach. when we finally got there we find out it cost $25!!! i don't know about you, but i find this ludicrous! so we made a u-turn (thank goodness they are legal here) and went back to jones beach where it cost $10. however, you can't just pay at the entrance, you have to get a car pass. we did not know this, so we had to make another u-turn to go get one. crazy! we finally got there and it was PACKED! i had a feeling it would be like this, and have actually seen worse, but i guess jamie was unprepared. he was really bummed out by the whole ordeal. and did i mention how cold the water was??? it was FREEZING! it wasn't that cold in cape cod! THEN, when we headed home traffic was even worse and it took 3 hours to get home! poor jamie. he said saturday was one of those days he hates living in ny. and here i was trying to give him a good weekend!

thankfully sunday was better, but we didn't leave our neighborhood either. it was HOT out. really really hot. we got breakfast and took sophia to the dog run (she didn't last long). then we just relaxed at the house until we got hungry again and we took sophia to eat mexican food on the patio of a restaurant. it was really good. and it cooled off slightly while we were there. that evening we also went to get ice cream. we joked that it was more sophia's day then father's day because we only went places she could go too. every day is sophia's day!

i know you can't see the card, but it has a water color of brooklyn on it. and said something like "happy father's day from brooklyn" it wasn't that cute, but i thought it was fitting.

i got jamie a tiny little grill that we can hopefully use on the fire escape. i don't know why the box says silver, it's green. everything i buy is green : )

and here is the current belly bump.
