pease and fank ooo

Saturdays are my favorite day of the week. We seem to pack so much into one day and Anderson and Jake always have a great time. This morning after the boys woke up and had some milk we headed outside for a morning stroll in their cars. It has been wicked hot around here for the past week so we figured that we better take them out early for some fresh air. We started our walk around 7:30 a.m., so we were probably guilty of waking some neighbors with the loud sound of 8 rickety wheels on concrete. Lately when we go on walks, we purposely walk past all the houses that have their sprinklers on. Anderson and Jake love to touch the water as it sprays out and soak themselves. I'm just waiting for the day that someone yells "get those kids out of my sprinklers lady...". Until that happens, I'll continue to let them finger up everyone's sprinkler heads.

After breakfast (yummy cinnamon french toast with strawberries) we went to Home Depot. The boys love rockin out in the double race car shopping cart. They get so excited when they see the cart and realize what is about to happen. We are in the process of replacing their current mini-blinds with nicer, sturdier wooden blinds so we had to have some custom cut. The machine cutting the blinds scared the beejeezus out of Jake so I did laps around the store with the boys.

Then it was time to head home for lunch and send the little ones off to bed for naptime. When the boys woke from their nap we were out the door again. This time we made a trip to Old Navy, Trader Joes, Parisian, and of course the family favorite (Kevin might disagree) Baja Fresh. The boys ate like wild animals. Cheese, strawberries, oranges, pinto beans, black beans, chicken.... It was an incredible display of gluttony and it made me oh so happy. Usually mealtime is a struggle with one precious unnamed twin and occasionally his counterpart. It was pure bliss to eat my meal without having to catch food flying past my head or having to get down on my knees in a public restaurant to peel smashed food from the floor. The little people even said "pease and fank ooo". I'll have to look outside tonight, maybe a full moon would explain things.
