what we’ve been doing

Just hanging out, being ‘cozy’, and eating brother’s hair.3-26-12Matt moonlighted/moonlit/was moonlighting (how the heck do you make ‘moonlight’ past tense?) this past weekend from Saturday 10pm to Sunday 8pm. The weather was perfect on Sunday. Mid-60s and sunshine.  After this little girl slept late (8:15am), the kids & I decided to check out some new parks close to our neighborhood.2012-03-25_08-17-14_911We started out by ‘finding those bad pirates. Arg! My pirate boots help me.’2012-03-25_10-40-50_2642012-03-25_10-41-38_632Then we took the stroller to the ‘purple park’. His ‘pirate boots’ have been rubbing blisters on his feet, but he refuses to wear anything else because ‘real cowboys wear cowboy boots!’ So we got inventive and made our version of a double stroller.2012-03-25_12-06-22_664At the purple park we played grumpy old troll. One of us had to guess the troll’s riddle before we could cross the bridge. I’m pretty sure he talked for a solid 30 minutes without taking a breath.2012-03-25_11-32-17_8072012-03-25_11-32-23_326 What did little sister do while we played? Snored.2012-03-25_10-36-56_3572012-03-25_11-29-13_119I have this thing about eating in restaurants alone. The ‘thing’ is, I don’t do it. Eating a restaurant with two kids by myself….well, never really thought about it. So, I was pretty proud of myself that we strolled all the way to The Great Dane, a great restaurant in our neighborhood, and had dino nuggets for lunch without any catastrophes. Well, Zane had dino nuggets. I had a great cajun chicken sandwich. Zane even smooth talked the waitress into bringing him cherries for dessert! 2012-03-25_13-00-25_296After nap time we had even more fun playing with the neighbors. The best part of the day? When daddy finally got home! We were already having bath time and getting ready for bed. Love these adorable faces.0324121948592012-03-24_19-53-39_688
