Paternity Leave: Day 27

August 30, 2014

Another splendid day with the family! Dad made pancakes in the morning, but I slept through it. I LOVE SLEEP! Regardless, I was able to see him before he took off for Long Beach, and then Megs, Sammy, and I went to Burbank for a meet and greet our new nanny, Amanda. We hung out with her and her husband Neil (whom I work with at WDI) for a while and had many good vibes and nice chats. We start the nannying on September 8th when I return to work, so wish us well! Megs and I are sad to have to leave Sam with someone who is not us, but such is the way of the world these days.

After that, Megs and I got lunch at Philly’s Best, which I always love. They were kind enough to provide us with 4oz of hot water so we were able to mix up some formula for a suddenly hungry Sammy. After getting her topped off, Megs and I went to REI where Megs got herself a bicycle! She hasn’t had one since her old junker in college, so this was very exciting for her. Sam and I hung around the store and I tested out the camping chairs while Megs test drove a few models. She finally settled on Novara Mia, which a lovely comfortable cruiser. Here’s Sam and I waiting around:

After dinner Megs and I finally saw The Incredible Hulk (2008), which we’d never seen. This completes our Marvel Cinematic Universe viewing set. Not a bad film, but certainly not the best of the lot. Let’s see, if I had to rank them I’d go (from least to favorite): Hulk -> Iron Man 2 -> Thor -> Thor 2 -> Iron Man -> Iron Man 3 -> Captain America -> Captain America 2 -> Guardians of the Galaxy -> Avengers.

That’s it for today, my lovelies! Enjoy the remainder of your Labor Day Weekend!
