One Perfect Weekend

All of us out at JL Ivy.

What a trip to Princeton, NJ! The Mr., the little guy and I left for NJ Friday night. We arrived at our friends beautiful home in Princeton around 8pm (and the third couple coming from NYC arrived just before us). We were all greeted with cocktails and yummy appetizers:) The little guy stayed up and played with toys until 9:30 and then crashed. We let him stay up late because he was cooped up in the car for 4 hours. He was a serious trooper on the trip. Then we had a late dinner which was cooked for us. It was delish....a warm baby spinach salad with toasted pine nuts, cherry tomatoes, warm goat cheese and grilled chicken and crusty bread...YUM! We all went through way too much wine and then stayed up until the wee hours. Saturday we got up, got the kids fed and left to head to our friends club. The 6 adults played round robin tennis and then we hit the pool for lunch, a swim and frozen Margaritas by the pool. Then kids napped and so did the adults...nice! Then we all got ready to head out for a nice dinner. The babysitter arrived and the kids loved crying at all...I even got a "bye mommy!" We headed to dinner in downtown Princeton (JL Ivy). Again, it was so great. I shared oysters and pate with one of the girls and I had an excellent sushi plate for my main course. Dessert was a warm molten chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream shared with the Mr. We had a nightcap at a local bar and headed home shortly after. Of course, we all stayed up for yet another nightcap back at the house, just catching up and hanging out. It really was perfect. So relaxed and yet sooooo much fun. I can't wait to get back there sometime soon!
