Weekend Update

Haven Gastropub in Orange...Friday date night with my boys. Felt great to be back in our old neighborhood! I was nervous about taking Carter to a bar on a Friday night but we sat on the front patio and he was very happy with the food, the service, and the atmosphere. He loved watching the cars go by or people walking their dogs on the street. Carter scarfed down dinner very happily. I think my baby is a foodie.
Our menu:
Pommes Frites--fancy french fries with herbs and housemade ketchup
Mac n Cheese--black truffles, gruyere, fotina, parmesan, with a crusty top
Roasted Jidori Chicken Breast, rosemary mashed potatoes, roasted carrots
Irish Car Bomb--Guinness chocolate stout cake, Guinness ice cream, Irish Cream chocolate sauce, Jameson caramel

Sometimes it takes three tries to get a decent picture:

Yesterday we went to the Santa Ana Zoo. Small but affordable, the grounds were really nice, it is only 20 minutes from our house, and Carter loved it. They have farm animals and lots of monkeys but I think the hit attraction was the train and the elephant. We had a playdate with his friend Johnny. It was a beautiful day (actually a bit too warm!) but we had a wonderful time.

Johnny and his daddy on the elephant.

Carter performing tricks on the carousal. I'm surprised he didn't get kicked off the ride!
Hope your weekend was as lovely as ours!
