The parents of this collection of cuties celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary yesterday so we had an overnight on Sunday to give them a little time to eat dinner that didn’t involve fifteen trips to the bathroom and at least one meltdown over having to share a fry with someone.
And as darling as they are right here…I do have to once again give kudos to young parents in the trenches because this…
was what their first response to “Sit down together so I can take a picture of you and send to mommy and daddy” looked like.
So here are the reality pics of the event…just the highlights…
After we made the trek to the park playground, we had to stop by the water tower so everyone could do whatever it is boys feel the need to do with a large white painted tower and yes…the paint does rub off on your hands…thank you Wet Wipes for once again saving us.
We had another one of our fancy patio party dinners.
Imitation Orange Dye is a food group, right?
If so, we are good on our RDA.
Monday morning we hit up Dunkin Donuts, which all three boys proclaimed to be the best Dunkin Donuts Shop in the whole world. So … we have that going for us now.
This is how they entertained themselves when I said surely they could stand still along the wall of the post office while I worked with the guy behind the counter to get a package mailed.
They were so entertaining for the people waiting behind us that the post master handed out suckers to them and to the people in line.
We went to the zoo and scared the living daylights out of the animals with our enthusiasm.
I may have to have knee surgery after crouching down for this picture and everyone thought I said, “Dog pile on Lola!!!”
We grabbed some lunch at the McDonalds over by our old house and I started crying because it was like fifteen minutes ago I sat at this table with their mom, Tia and Uncle John saying basically the same things I said yesterday…but still…best days ever are best days ever even when you need a jumbo diet Coke just to stay awake <3
And finally this classic shot because E. M. M. E. T. T. has met his match.
This one finagled a toy away from him and then followed him around doing this for quite some time.
What you can’t see or hear is her making the cheesiest smile and saying….Emmmmeeeettttttttt…..as she held the toy tight to her chest.
Oh the irony.
Have a great Tuesday and check back tomorrow <3
