We Went, We Ate, We Saw

We did it! We actually went out on a semi like date! Thanks to the encouragement of some of you and my hubby, we took the plunge and went out to a dinner fundraising evening. The evening was filled with great fellowship, lots of laughs, a fabulous meal (which I got to eat while it was HOT!!) and great entertainment. We only made it 6 1/2 hours away from home before needing to come home; and it was not due to us missing the kids. It was due to my breasts missing Masyn so much that they were concrete hard full and just begging for some release. Masyn managed to take about half a bottle and ended up choosing sleep over trying to figure out what the heck was being offered to her. Upon hearing this, I only too happily woke her up for a gratifying feed for both parties involved.

Our sitters came over an hour early and surprised me with a manicure! How sweet are they? Well Mommy also received a necklace made by Kaelen first thing this morning, a new bottle of nail polish and a beautiful letter from the girls telling me that I have a gorgeous family and that they would love to watch my kids again sometime very soon. I could get used to going out if it means that I get spoiled as such!!

As expected, not all was done the way that we normally do things with our kids. Masyn's diaper was on backwards, she was wrapped up in too many layers of blankets and Kaelen .... well ... from the looks of it, the girls forgot to put up the safety rail on his bed. Once we realized that he was still breathing, his situation was actually quite entertaining.

Hurray! I'm so glad you went out! And, I'm jealous! We have GOT to get some babysitters!!

That is so cute, backwards diaper & camping out on the floor! I love that he had a flashlight with him!
