Spring Break, Day 4

Weather: 60 degrees and sunny! Woot!

Sleepover day! The kids packed and packed (OMG did they pack!) everything they own, basically, and lugged it into the back of the car. We had 2 bikes, a big baby doll stroller, a small doll stroller, 3 suitcases, an overnight bag, a bag of extra shoes, a bag full of toys, 4 blankies, 2 stuffed animals, and one small backpack with Leapsters and assorted toys.

Did I mention this was for one night?

We finally headed out to Aunt Susie's house. We had a yummy lunch at Bucceto's. Then we went to Wonderlab, an awesome kids' science museum. The Little Miss climbed to the very top of this very cool grape leaf climbing thingamajig. Cole chickened out about 3 feet into it.

They had a snake out for kids to pet. Cole informed me that it looked poisonous and was NOT going to touch it. He settled for making a paper plate snake at the craft table. Heh.

Doesn't he look like Elmer Fudd in that mirror?!

After the museum, the kids went back to Aunt Susie's to spend the night while I drove back home. It was so awesome to drive home with the sunroof open, windows down, and radio cranked up!

I got all prettied up and waited for the husband to come home.

Notice my clever use of the daisy frame to draw attention away from my dark roots. The appointment is scheduled. I promise.

We had dinner and went to the movies! Do you know how long it has been since we went to the movies together? A very long time! We saw Cop Out with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. It was kind of slow, but had some very funny parts.

We got home from the movie, had some wine, and then there may have been a little brown chicken, brown cow.

And if you get that, you are my new best friend. It is my favorite joke of.all.time.

Tomorrow will be Spring Break, Day 5. Wahhh! I am not ready! Could we just fast forward to June 2, please? Thankyouverymuch.

Pin It!

Good for you! My neighbor asked me when the last time Mr Blarney & I have had a date night and I couldn't honestly remember. Gotta get that on the 'to do' list!

Umm, ok, you may have to email me, because that joke went over my head, but I do know what it means. heheh! Love that photo of you!! You look great! Jeremi and I have two date nights coming up, and its been a long time. And, of course, we were thinking of going to the movies but there doesn't seem to be anything good out right now! Boo!!! I love how she climbed ALL the way to the top and Big Bro chickened out! Ha!! I hate heights so I am sure I would have chickened out, too! Again, I am so jealous of your week off!

that really looks like a fun place to visit. I don't know what brown chicken and brown cow means, but I'm all kinds of curious.
