I have to say - it's near impossible to get a picture where all of them are looking at the same time. I must have taken 20 and this is the best I got!We are done with school, and I somehow promised the kids that I would take them to Chili's this week as a celebration. Did I think this through before making the promise? Of course not.
So, it was me at Chili's with all 5 kids. It could have been nightmarish. I had visions of me running from the restaurant throwing a large tip behind me.
Luckily, it went perfectly. Seriously. They sat like little angels. No yelling or fighting. No running away (which Nick likes to do) and Tori sat happily in the high chair. It was wonderful.
They even got all dressed up in their matching dresses so that they would look nice. (We don't eat out much!)
They were so good and it was so warm out that we stopped for hot fudge sundaes and went to the park to run around afterward.
Now we're back home and the kids are complaining that there are too many mosquitoes outside. The second the snow thaws, the mosquitoes are biting. Off! is definitely at the top of my shopping list for tomorrow.
Ok, so as I was writing this, Ellie came running inside, because Nick got himself stuck in the greenhouse.
Even though it's 75 degrees out, there is still a big chunk of ice in front of the door and we haven't been able to get inside. He apparently opened it up just enough to squeeze himself in, but then he couldn't get back out. I couldn't help but laugh.
So, we got the hammer out and I started chipping away at the ice. He was rescued and now we can open the door and start planting :) I'm off to go outside and enjoy the good weather while it's here...
