I am basically surprised that people still invite us to things, because my kids melt down like a couple of ants under a magnifying glass. Guaranteed. I can think of very few events we've attended lately that do not end with Tim and I each carrying a crying child to the car - and these are situations where the kids are not overtired or hungry. They are just explosive pains in the ass.
Fun things we've done though - Ellie has been spending a lot of time drawing, which she loves. She can write her name (both Ellie and Elizabeth) and has learned how to spell love, and draw hearts. We've also spent a lot of time in the backyard enjoying the nice weather, watching the hummingbirds hum around the feeder, riding bikes, drawing with chalk. We had a picnic at the park this weekend, which was really fun for them. We did family movie night not once but twice! And some time bothering Gigi and Grizz.
Bonus: Ellie is learning to toss around the frisbee. This video makes me laugh SO hard. Because as Ellie says, I am the mean old mommy.
And here is Adam, being a goofball.
