We had a busy but fun weekend. On Friday I took the boys to the Children's Museum where we once again spent a lot of time in the tool area. The boys love wearing the goggles and aprons while "cutting" things.
Saturday morning I ran 8 miles with my 3 friends who are also training for the 1/2 marathon with me. This is the second weekend to do a long run with someone else and it's the way to go. Running long runs by yourself is for the birds. I love running with friends. It makes it go by super fast. This picture was taken after the 8 miles.
After the run David and I took the boys to the Aquarium. I love going there but don't love going by myself. Its dark inside so you can see the fish well but I don't like it because I often can't see my 2 kids. I love going with David because its man on man instead of playing defense. We had a lot of fun watching the sea lions outside. They were all sleeping and man did my boys try to wake them up. I don't think the sea lions appreciated it.
Sunday David and I went on a date to the Celtics/Grizzlies basketball game. It was so fun...fun to be alone with my husband in the middle of the day...fun to be at a basketball game...fun to see our home team (Memphis) play our other home team (Boston). We had a great time and are so thankful to our friends JP and Tiffany for watching the boys for us.
JP is Miller's new favorite person (that is JP on the right...not a great picture of either guy...sorry)
That night we had some friends over for the Super Bowl. We are sad the Patriots lost but it was still fun to watch the game with friends. Austin loved that we were having his friends over. He has become quite the social butterfly (I wonder where he gets that from).
Austin playing with his friend Sebastian and sweet Miller giving Remi some of his toys. He loves to help with the babies.
We changed the boys into their pj's in the den so we could keep watching the game and we were obviously watching the game closer than we were watching Miller when all of a sudden, he picked up David's beer and proceeded to take a sip and pour it all over himself. He was laying down so it went in his eyes, mouth, ears, and all over his pj's. I was so worried that he was going to be drunk but the friends that saw it reassured me that he didn't get much in his mouth. He did wake up numerous times that night which is very unusual for him. I think his eyes were burning from the beer in them. Lesson learned, do not keep your beer anywhere near the little guy. He's into everything.
The next morning he entertained himself with daddy's boots.
And that night he entertained himself with a bucket on his head and played the drum with it.
Disregard the terrible singing on the video. Just watch the cute little guy dancing with a bucket on his head.
It was a fun, busy, and memorable weekend.
