Phoebe & Rhyse's Engagement

Last weekend was my co-worker Phoebe and her partner Rhyse's Engagement party.
We didn't stay long though, probably only for a good 2.5 hours since Jeremy had work early the next day.

Jaiden was the star of the party, as always. He was the only one dancing in the middle of dance floor,  running around playing with another toddler, William. Phoebe informed me when I got back to work that she and whole family loved my present and will help with stress when they officially start planning for their wedding. We gave them a really pretty wedding organiser. She also said that it was the most unique present they received, and received plenty of duplicates of engraved glasses haha typical.

Aiden's 2nd Birthday

Last week we went to Sydney Aquarium for our friend Megan's son, Aiden's 2nd birthday celebration.

We started our morning with a Maccas breakfast run at the start of entering the highway. It didn't take us long to get to the city, but to get to our destination kind of did because we got lost and took the wrong exit, as always, and ended up going over the bridge to North Sydney. Jeremy always gets angry when we get lost lol. Even with our detour, we still got there earlier than the hosts haha. When everyone arrived, we got our tickets and went inside.

Jaiden was excited to see the little fish and as he got closer and as they got bigger, the more scared he got. We showed him that the fish were friendly by touching the glass & he eventually, was okay with the little fish but was still scared of the big ones. He would scream if we held him up next to the glass and the fish were in front of his face haha. When we got to the sharks, he was terrified! He wouldn't let go of Jeremy and he closed his eyes the entire time we were there! Unfortunately, we accidentally skipped out on the Dugongs, which we were looking forward to.

After the aquarium, we made our way to Tumbalong Park at Darling Harbour. We fetched lunch and sat under the trees, enjoying the sunshine. Aiden and Jaiden wen to the water feature at the new park there. Aiden got soaked and Jaiden was hardly wet. He was so scared to get wet haha. Just as well though because we didn't have a towel handy.

Hariette's 22nd Birthday

Last Friday night, we went out for my 'sister' Hariette's 22nd Birthday.
I ended up going home after work just so I could see Jaiden before dropping him off to my mums for the night and also so I could get ready properly. We drove to the city and ended up getting there way before we expected, which was 30 minutes earlier. So Jeremy and I went to the restaurant (Tony Roma's) early, because we didn't have anything else to do and just sat there for a good 45 minutes waiting for everyone. Jeremy ended up having a coffee to warm himself up lol.

People finally started arriving, but as usual, the birthday girl is always late lol. We got our orders and waited very patiently, giving that everyone was so hungry.. I ordered The Original Baby Back Ribs with corn and a spud as a side. It was so delicious! I ate the whole thing! which is pretty rare for me because I never finish any meal off. Jeremy ordered a burger since he wasn't that hungry.

Afterwards, Hariette and her friends decided to crash at their penthouse while we went straight home because we were just knackered. It was a good catch up though. I hadn't seen and spoken to my '2nd family' properly in so long. And it was a good, quiet night out. Just what I longed for.
