Today I decided to practice efficiency and good time management and combine a run and a trip to the grocery store, wow that resulted in some strange looks. We live about 1 mile from a grocery store that we often walk to, we get looks doing this, but today I decided to make the run a little longer and go to the Super Target instead. I ran the 2 miles to the store with the BOB and the looks started when I entered the store. I don’t know if it was the BOB or the cute baby, but everyone stared. Maybe they thought I was stealing the card, red pepper, zucchini, and yellow squash I put in the basket under the stroller. Things got stranger when I got in line and the people behind me had to point me out. Maybe it’s the fact that we live in the suburbs and people just don’t walk anywhere, I’m not sure but I’d walk/run/bike everywhere if I could, with an infant it is almost easier than the entire car seat process. Now I’m wondering was this really that weird?

This year we have established a couple new family traditions revolving around food and holidays. This started with sushi on St. Patrick’s Day and then Cinco de Mayo, so we decided all ethnic holidays mean sushi. The second trend continued yesterday when we went out for Indian on Father’s Day, the same meal choice as on Mother’s Day; so the second tradition of Indian food on parental holidays. Ophelia got her second taste of Indian, she loved the mushy potato/pea mix from the samosas and the pureed spinach from the shrimp saag.
As I wrote this I realized we don't have many pictures of Matt and Ophelia, this is the last one from Easter. Looks like we need more daddy/baby pictures.
