The Weekend..

We have had quite a hectic weekend....
What with wedding season on... and the entire world deciding to get married on those very same days.... one tends to be rushing from one wedding to another....

In the past few weeks , we have attended three big weddings.. all of which were very nice... we took Joy to two receptions and have learnt our lesson....
He stays at home... from now on....
He though had a blast... can't say the same for his Baba.... who was running behind him ....preventing him from lunging at the lovely.. warm sigris.... stopping him from diving into the freezing waterfalls... and what not....
Though we have learnt one thing.... just carry his nosey wipes and a bottle of water and warm milk... and we are ready to go.... and of course a few diapers....
he eats everything and anything now....
Joy seems to have a particular liking for Chiken Malai Tikka.... he can eat inumerable quantity of those... as well as fried fish... so I guess we are ready for any trip anywhere....

On Sunday... we took Joy for a small picnic.... we do so otherwise as well... and did a lot of it last year.....if people remember reading my blog then....
so this time as well we went to our favourite Lodi Garden.... and were surprised to be joined by a few friends... and their babies as well....
There was this lovely plan of going to Kuchchesar...the Mud Fort.... which is about two hours away.... but I had the feeling the husband would not be very enthusiastic... about the long drive considering he drives for almost two hours everyday to work and back..... and sure enough...he refused.... So I told our other friends to go ahead.....
The husband and I have this plan of visiting all the Neemrana properties....( i think every one has somekind of quirky dream... and the husband and I share one.... as well... we love the high life.. we love.... plush resorts and hotels... and love fine dining ..which is why we seem to be broke as well...) We have already done one fo the Neemrana properties.... we did Pataudi last year and are doing Neemrana Fort on the 3-4 th of Jan... and are very excited about it...So we have been eyeing Kesroli and Kuchchesar as well... as they are close by... ( kuchchesar now ceases to be a Neemrana .... don't know why though).....anyways .. So the Husband has assured me that we shall go there soon as well.... there are such good deals on... sometimes....

We went as I was saying for our picnic.. with some tossed up macaroni and oranges and some juice... two other couples .. also joined us... making the picnic quite exciting with garam kachoris and sandwiches and soem hot spicy chai from a local guy there...
The kids had a blast.... they climbed up little hillocks... rolled down the sides.... played with a ball... chomped on the yummy food.... lay in the grass and napped.. drank their milk.. all while... us adults.. soaked in the sun and caught up on senseless and inane conversation....
There was laughter all around...
It was great watching Joy play with his two friends... Leela and Vidipta... Leela.. who is a little older.. had this protective attitude.. when Joy tripped and fell down ..she tried to clean his hands with a wet wipe... so cute... and also walked after him... to keep an eye on him....( she is just a year older than Joy...) and Joy and Vidipta... went through this round of huggies...and swaying to us humming to them.... Joy ran around like a maniac.... exhausting his poor Baba....

We finally returned back to my mothers place at around 4 in the evening and then after a cup of tea.. drove back to Gurgaon.... The Husband and I have now started enjoying our drive back hom together..we chat... joke... and try and save the car stereo.... from being smashed ..when Joy is awake... or sing along if he isn't... lol..
We reached home torealise we hadn't picked up our months provisions... so we dropped Joy and the maid off.. and went to get that over with....
A friend of The husband's... came over at night and we all went out to dinner to this really cozy Thai diner... close by ..the food was fabulous....came back with a doggy bag......:- )

The Husband is off on tour... and will be gone for a week.. am completely swamped with work at school... so I really don't think I will notice the time flying.... Joy keeps me on my toes when I come home every afternoon.... but I am loving it....
