life around here lately.

We are still spending time at my parent's house for another week.  Avinash and Nandini seem to have grown so much in just one week with their Nana and Nani.

We headed down to Sesame Place for a birthday party last week. Avinash was super excited to ride the roller coaster. Watching his joy riding all the rides was great. So was having them both fall asleep on the way home within two minutes so we could enjoy a peaceful drive back.

Watching Brave at the drive-in.  So fun to pile in the back of the van with a pile of blankets and pillows with their cousin. Seeing the stars come out while we were out there was so much fun.

We had a kids-free night in Philadelphia. We arrived a little early so we got to walk around Olde City around sunset. So pretty.  One of my old college friends met up with us for dinner at Amada after that.  A tapas place with a vegetarian section on the menu.  We brought home a jar of their garlic dulce de leche too.  Yummm.

Lots and lots of playing.  Nandini occupies her time practicing her motor skills.  Careening around the house on her walker, putting cards in and out of boxes, typing on my thirty year old toy computer, kissing her dolls and that little monkey there.  She has been talking up a storm lately too.  I swear it sounds like she is speaking Hindi. She says bathao (tell me), which sounds a lot like bachao (rescue me), aaja (come here), bhaiya (brother), Nana and Nani.  She is also always looking for something or someone called tatha. 

And, ice cream at the green park.  They have the best soft serve truck there. Ryan and I have been waiting to go back there for over a year. 


  1. The Drive-in is so much fun. Happy to hear that some places still have them. In my town, the last one was torn down within the last couple of years.

  2. How awesome to watch BRAVE at the drive-in, we saw it and loved it.
