Well I'm sure some of you thought that I had fallen off the face of the earth. I'm here at Lara and Sean's house while they're in Hawaii, and Michael and I are here with the girls. First and foremost...GOOD JOB all of you mothers out there. This is tough. I thought I knew what I was getting myself into. It's hard to go from total freedom, to bondage...ok, not bondage, but the girls are certainly keeping me on my toes. So Michael and I, in our defense, have figured out that we are going to run the girls hard all day, so they crash at night. So far, so good! The first night we played on the tramp with the sprinklers, the second night, we got a babysitter and went out for our belated anniversary. We saw the Da Vinci Code too!! I agree with Britt, the movie is better, but the for the time restraints, they did very well. It was great! Then we went to dinner at Outback, where they took my favorite item off the menu...I was not impressed. Good thing I had had movie popcorn, and cotton candy!! Then Saturday, we went to the zoo. We had a great time! I'll post some video later. Then we met up with Erin and Scott and the kids at the mall for dinner. I have to say, great idea! They cook, and clean for you! All you have to do is throw it away! GENIUS! Then, since they were wiped, bedtime was not bad. Today, we took the girls to our ward, and I'm pleased to say, we were ontime. Liv slept through most of our class, and then woke up to pass aroung the rice krispie treats Sommer and I made for them. This afternoon, we spent most of it outside. We took a little bike ride, where Liv insisted she run most of the way. We didn't argue! The more energy she uses, the better. We then hung around outside for a while and watched Michael try to get the RC truck going. We went in for snacks, and the girls were both asleep by 9:00. Not too bad at all. So Michael and I are going to watch a movie without being crawled on by little people, or asked for treats, or running anyone to the potty! YEAH!!!! Hopefully there will be a few more quiet moments like this one before Lara and Sean are home! All I have to say is that it's good kiddies come one at a time, and small!
