Date Night

Tonight a couple of girlfriends and I went on a date night with our little men.  They are all starting kindergarten exactly two weeks from today.  No siblings allowed!  They all were out of their minds excited when they found out what was happening and I just loved watching them all night.  They had so so so much fun.  We took them to Dave and Buster's for dinner and games.  They all had a big time drinking Sprite and ordering whatever they wanted.  Quinn must have told me a hundred times- this is the best day ever!

No shoes, no shirt, no service.
Sorry- no littles allowed!

I mean just look at this...

I am thankful for sweet little friends and their moms!  I hope all through school Quinn always has friends as great as these :)

The Double Stroller

Since boot camp is over now, this morning we went for a run and walk in our neighborhood instead of heading to church.  I was SO sad, though.  For years I have been able to just pop both boys in the stroller and take off doing whatever outdoor activity we were doing for the day.  It's been a long while since Quinn sat in a stroller on an everyday basis- but when I run or go for a long walk he always sits.    I get to pretend he's still a tiny boy for a little while each day.  The next two weeks will probably mark the end of our double stroller mornings.  Quinn will be at school everyday from 7:40-3:30 and I will run with just Madden.  This does mean that I won't have to referee as I run and gasp for air as I yell at them to please for the love of all that is holy stop touching each other... but it will make me sad.  The end of an era.  So many hours and miles with my whole little world in one stroller.  We got our double stroller before Madden was born and I couldn't imagine how quickly the time would go that we would be growing out of it.

Jessica's Baby Shower

I left this morning for Georgetown and had a little farewell party at the garage door.  Notice Madden has on one of his shoes, one of Quinn's shoes, and they're on the wrong feet.

Too bad we can't go back in time to playgroup days!

I got to Jessica and Jon's and we got ready and took some front porch photos before heading over to Kelly's.

Jon's mom Patti and Jessica

Jessica's mom and Kelly did a great job hosting!

Reading her mail from Quinn.

We got her monogrammed shoes...

Monogrammed, seersucker, bubble bathing suit...
A necessity of course..

And a high chair... non monogrammed.

The grandmothers, mother, and great-grandmother to be!

I had a fun afternoon at the shower! When I was leaving I told Jess- next time I see you you'll have a baby!  She sent me home with some birthday presents for the boys.  A Longhorns football for Quinn and a hat for Madden.

He keeps walking around saying- Goooo Texas! Sports sports sports!
