this weekend, i found myself
totally and completely
outnumbered by lots and lots (well, just 3) of little children.
B was gone on a quick golf trip (even if it didn’t feel very quick to me).
soon, the children took over the entire house.

which, of course, included my bed.

so, i decided that we had to get out of the house.
and fast.

to the library we headed.

K picked some great books.
she also may have picked her nose.
but, we’re working on limiting that to the bathroom only.

next stop:

ice cream, of course!

we all had fun picking out something special to eat.

K doesn’t like ice cream for some strange reason.
so she got m&m’s instead.

L simply enjoyed watching the fans spin
around
and
around
and
around.
he even started signing “fan” at the ice cream store.
see, there are benefits to taking your kids out for a mid-afternoon sugar fix.

and my little sweetness who dances
e v e r y w h e r e

found a great spot to dance while we waited for the elevator.
the excess sugar in her system probably aided some of her dance moves.

and this little man even sported a sweet ‘stache.

after an eventful and exhausting day, it’s nice to sit down at dinner to find this:

even if you were the one who set the table.
(thanks for the plate, Gram!)

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
