A Night Out

Last night Cloverlandfarm mommy-and-daddy-to-be took over the race car, book, horsie, and bedtime duties so that mom, dad, and grandma could have a night out in the city. Let's just say that I think Ash had an even better time than we did because he hardly even noticed when we left. He was way too engrossed with his new friends to care about the wherabouts of mom :) Thanks guys, you're going to be amazing parents!

So off we went, a quick Q train ride to Union Square where we enjoyed a celebratory toast at Flute (note to self, the Montaudon Champagne Grande Rose Brut is delicious) and then headed next door to our reservations at the Gramercy Tavern. A zillion courses later that included black tagliatelle, scallops, lobster, pork belly, seabass, cod, three different goat cheeses, tapioca, pumpkin upsidedown cake, chocolates, a levender infused gin cocktail and a sensational Nebbiolo we waddled our way into a cab and somehow managed to climb the stairs and join the babe in dreamland. It was a night well done. Very well done. And to top it all off, guess who slept until 7:10 this morning? YEAH! My son rocks, and having grandma in town and good friends to play with the babe while we go out and play does too.

Happy Weekend!
