Sometime just after 11pm, the hiphop dancing and general merriment came to an abrupt end. One of them actually made it to the bed before passing out. The other looks like she had a rough night at the bar.
I know it's been absolutely forever since my last update. It's been a LONG summer. Warning.. this post is picture heavy.
We started off the summer moving into our new home... We have a nice yard for the girls to play in, and a kitchen I love to cook in, and lots of room to move around and grow.
Our Living room.. minus furniture..
Part of our yard...
The girls have really enjoyed having a nice yard to run around in every day. Mama's enjoyed them being worned out every day.
We've spent an insane amount of time at local playgrounds... where the girls have made lots of new friends.
They started a prep class to prepare them for preschool.. I know it
sounds completely insane, but they're SO attached to me that I'm afraid
we'll have major problems when I have to leave them for a few hours a
day. This little class is just for 2 hours a week, and so far they
seem to enjoy it.
We graduated to big girl beds today... God help us.
If anyone has any tips on how to KEEP THEM in the bed (without beating them or using duck tape), please let me know. I have a feeling it's going to be a LONG night.
I bet my children have grown 2" in the past 2 months. I can't even begin to say how much happier they are since we've moved out of the apartment from hell and into a much bigger place. They have a yard! and they've enjoyed running around it every single day since we moved. LOL
We're not completely unpacked yet... even still. I figure we'll be completely done just in time to move again in a few years. One of the things I've not found yet, is my camera battery charger. So this picture of the girls was the last one I took.. the day we moved.
I have no idea why the girls call them that... but today we went to see GUYS!!! The Backyardigans Live!
It was their first big trip into Boston.. their first time walking the city streets.. their first time in a theater.. and the first day they were so tired they asked to go to bed, then went straight to sleep without even a peep! That right there is worth the $150!. LOL
They did really well. They sat on our laps most of the time, but they clapped and sang and believed everything they saw on stage. To us it was cheesy... to them though, it was magical. I bet they have good dreams tonight :)
We took the girls over to a small local ice cream place for a treat. They each got their own cone with soft serve, and it was apparently a big hit. LOL They're still talking about it! And yes.. we are crazy enough to let them eat it in the car!
