Wiped Out!

I can't wait for you to see all of the new stuff that will be posted in the shop in the next few days!  Hooray!  

We are wiped out! Exhausted!  Each and everyone of us, I do believe.  And I love it when that happens...when the kids and the dog have all run enough in a day to be falling down asleep at the end of the day.  And this is why...
We went to the dog park at Sandy Creek today.  It is an enormous fenced in area (ENORMOUS) that we rented for an hour for the children and the dog to run wild and free.  We picnicked and no one wanted their picture taken.  But LOOK!  its Ike and all three kids in the same frame.  Pretty rare.

We spent a lot of time blowing bubbles.  And Quinn popped the bubbles in mid air with a big stick.  He ran in circles shouting. "Get back here!  Get back here!" to the bubbles.  The bubbles were not good listeners and this became a frustrating game for Q.  Go figure.



And then the children ran some more.  


Following the dog park, we went to Verizon and upgraded to (gasp!) iphones.  Me.  Us.  We have iphones.  My previous phone was a $10 flip open phone.  Seriously.  We are getting ready to make to transition to cell phones rather than the outrageous land line bundle that we have.  I have decided that anything having to do with cell phones is pretty much the equivalent to buying a car.  Really, that's what it felt like.  I left Chris to figure it all out while the kids and I had Dairy Queen in the food court.  
After that, we headed over to Target, then Michael's, then the Ho Lo, where Casey fell in love with a little singer sewing machine that she is now saving her money to buy.  

On the way home I used my new *smart* phone to look up the number to Johnny's pizza and order it while Chris drove us back from Athens.

I loved today.  I do believe that it was my favorite day of February.

well happy birthday to you! I'm glad it was a wonderful day. Ike's tongue hanging out has got to be a good thing.

Sounds like an awesome day! Put the memory in your pocket so you can pull it out when you need it. :)
