As we were driving out to our picnic last night, Blake spotted a limo on the highway. "Look kids! A limo!" Lainey replied, "Hey. Dat not Nemo." That pretty much sums up our romantic 10 year anniversary celebration. Kid-filled. I mean, really, who needs to jet off to Mexico and spend 4 days staring all googly-eyed at each other with pina coladas in hand? Times are tough, peeps! We had fun, anyway.
Found a few more pictures from the resurrected memory card. Lainey Bug in her high chair. I typically bawl like a baby with each passing phase of our kids growing up, but this is one thing I do not miss. Do you see the perma-funk of food on the arm? Yuck.
Carter snapped this picture of us while hiking through the Rocky Mountain National Park. I miss my baby bjorn.
We celebrated Carter's last day of school with a zoo trip. Lainey is in cute-overload mode. And, I think Carter looks just like his Daddy here.
Think Jack is excited about the train? Nice glamour shots pose, Blake.
The Kansas City Zoo is crawling with snakes. Literally. And, not in cages. This guy was by the swan's nest.
Back to the train. Tunnel!
Punks on our stop mid-way to pick up more passengers.
We went to Africa this time.......on the far end of the zoo.
Cutie husband. Of 10 years and 1 day.
Lainey showed Meow Meow the elephants.
And, clung to Carter for a bit.
Meow Meow got a ride on Lainey's shoulders.
Waiting for the tram back.
We grabbed dinner on our way out and then headed to our favorite picnic spot. Have you noticed how much we love picnics? Outside.....under the trees.....with the fam. Doesn't get much better.
Later that night, we found this on our couch. I have no idea.
So, the job search is going well. And, if the sheer necessity of an income and benefits doesn't persuade Blake to find something, his need to leave this house every day will. The children are driving him insane. It must be them.......certainly not me.
This week has been jam packed with dentist appointments. Although, they're early for our 6 month check-ups, we're getting them in before Cobra takes over. The kids did well.....glowing reports as before......Jack and Lainey even got full cleanings this time. Then Jack refused the x-rays. Our dentist told us that he will definitely be our orthodontist-needing kid. His teeth are so perfectly straight right now.....there's not a lot of room for his adult teeth to fill in. And, all of this makes sense because he's absolutely our easiest kid.
Kansas suddenly turned very hot. I don't like the heat. And, I really don't understand how kids can play and play outside until their hair is sopping wet with sweat. Weirdos.
Off to sing Marty Moose, the fake theme park song from the movie, Vacation. That, or Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. As lullabies. Because it's bedtime.
Our kids really have no hope with us as parents. Later!
