We are starting to have a really nice schedule that seems to work for everyone in the family. Solid two hour morning nap and 5pm bedtime for roo have been really helpful to set the tone of the day along with a really fun play time and a series of small baby/toddler meals.
Once a week or so, we venture out to local restaurants for breakfast or lunch. We call it mini inspirational investment. Big trips are awesome but having lots of mini outings is also great to spice up the everyday, right?
Today we decided to check out Schodorf's Luncheonette, a new restaurant in highland park. We love these small restaurants doing awesome stuff. The space must have been 10 feet wide! It's a tiny place between a bank and (what looked like) a party shop.
Their sandwiches were fresh (as it promised) and oh so pretty black cherry pop! Yum:)
I also saw them using the Square with iPad. A [physical] plug-in which transforms an iPad into a credit card processor. Such a cool concept! I got one for my shop but haven't had a chance to use it yet... so I was glad to see how it works from a customer's perspective.
I am slowly falling in love with this little corner in Highland Park. It's still little rough around the edges but I can feel that there is a good vibe... though I might be very biased since I also love Cafe de Leche, around the corner coffee shop! After our lunch, we took a mini walk to the coffee shop and had our very warm and relaxing cups of coffee while little roo played in the kid's corner.
Our roo is getting really good in walking. She now can lead her way and I just have to support her little bit from the back so that she doesn't trip over. It's so cute to see her get super excited when she sees her papa coming towards her. I can totally tell that she wants to run to him! Who knows... maybe she will be walking all by herself on her birthday:)
