We started off the day going to and celebrating Katie Tovson's 5th birthday. It was at Pump It Up. After getting over his fear of the bounce houses, he really had a blast! Brennan did not like the bounce houses at all!!!
Since we were near Grapevine for Katie's birthday party, Miguel met us at the Grapevine Mills Mall, where we had lunch and did some clothes shopping for me. As we were walking in, Colin saw the Rainforest Cafe, and commented on all the animals. Since he's never eaten there before, we decided to have lunch there. Colin loved watching the thunderstorms and all of the animals moving. Brennan wasn't too happy about it.
I was in the mood for cheesecake last night, so we decided to have dinner at Saltgrass. I LOVE the cheesecake there. I also had a couple yummy drinks, that left me feeling a little tipsy. Good thing Miguel was driving. Our waiter offered to take a family picture for us.
The day ended with a trip to Best Buy. I wanted to get a new Bluetooth earpiece. I've tried a few of them, but none really worked the way that I wanted them too. I ended up getting a more expensive one this time. We'll see how it works out. We also got the boys a replacement DVD player for their playroom, since the one that they had died a couple weeks ago. I snatched Colin's glasses that he got as a favor from Katie's birthday party, and made a few silly poses.
Last night I celebrated my 27th birthday with family. Miguel decorated the house beautifully, wrapped gifts, and picked out a cake that was truly me. He did a great job! I got lots of greats gifts (thanks everyone!), but most of all, I got to spend time with my family that I love so much. They really made my birthday special. The rest of the pictures are on my smugmug.
I gave Brennan a spoon to try to feed himself today. He really tried, and actually got a few bites into his mouth, but in the end he resorted to feeding himself his oatmeal with his hands. We will keep trying, and I know he'll get it soon!
Well, like I stated in my last post, I've been lacking blog appropriate content lately. Sure, things are going on, but just not things that are either appropriate for my blog or things that, really, wouldn't be interesting to you...
I've recently reconnected with an old friend. Emily and I live like 3 blocks away from each other, and we drift. In fact, we can pretty much go over a year without contact. Recently, we've started getting together again...which I really enjoy. My boys love playing with her girls!
Today, we took the kids to McDonald's for lunch. We let them play for a few hours...literally! Then we went over to the sports store and picked out some new workout clothes, weights, and workout videos...we are gonna be HOT MAMMAS!!!
Here are a few pics from lunch. The rest are on my smugmug.
It seems like every year in February we have some snowfall. Colin LOVES it! He wanted to play outside all day, but it was too darn cold! This was the first year that we bundled up Brennan and put him in the snow. He was NOT a happy camper! The rest of the pictures are on my smugmug.
