Hey guys. Phew...they are wearing me out! Yesterday I was ready for bed at like 3PM. No joke. It was an early morning and a busy day. I got up at 7 and woke Sarah and Tyler up..they got last minute things together for Hume and got ready..Garrett and Charlie were still sleeping so I woke them up and put them in the car in their jammies. Sarah and Ty had to be at church at 7:45. I dropped them off and rushed back home to get myself and the boys ready for church which started at 9. We quickly got ready, and made it just in time. I dropped the boys off at their class and scurried off to "big church". As I was walking up to the doors all the kids going to Hume came pouring out. Sarah ran up to me and gave me a tight hug. She was crying ;( I didn't even see Tyler..he was off with his friends. But Sarah was having a hard time. I knew once she left she'd be fine...but it's that leaving part. She was about to make me cry to I pried her off and sent her to the bus with her friend Haley and her mom. Before I knew it she was calling me and sending goofy pics from someone's cell phone on the bus. All better :) Church was good, Nana came too. The message was, If you're saved, you shouldn't act like someone who isn't. Totally true..Then I went to Sunday school and after that I picked up the boys. I was driving home and got the great idea of taking them to see Cars 2. Char had already seen it at his bday party but I thought Garrett would like it. So we went home for a little bit and then went to see it at 1:30 buuuut she said we would have front row seating. Everyone and their grandmas cat was at the movies to see this. The next showing was at 4 so I bought tickets for that one. That kinda messed up our plans thought because we were supposed to go to Nana and Papa's house at 5 for dinner. I called Nana and she said it was okay and to just come at 6:30. Flexible :) The boys were getting hungry for lunch so I took them to Fosters Freeze with my friend Adam. I was planning on getting them chicken strips since that's what they always eat there buuuuut they were out of chick strips. So I got them french fries and ice cream instead. Flexible :) That was quite the experience however, you eat outside there, flies everywhere, dirty tables, I noticed chocolate on Garrett's arm and got really grossed out when I realized we didn't order anything with chocolate......this was the very moment I decided I would never leave the house without wipes again. After we ate Adam left and we went back to the movies...by this time I had taken the boys in and out of the car 8 times. It gets tiring!! Poor things were falling asleep in the car but we were going to see this dang movie!!!
We parked, got out, (making it 9 times), and I was all happy feeling smart, thinking we were going to go right in and get good seats because I had already bought our tickets. Boy was I wrong. There was a HUGE line where people who had their tickets had to stand. And it was really hot. But we are flexible :) Luckily I brought water for the boys and snacks. We finally got in and stood in a extremely slow line for popcorn. I was really worried about our seats at this point. And I was right. Third row from the front, alllll the way at the very end of the row. But hey, we could definitely see it! And the boys still had a good time. Flexible :) After the movie I took the boys by Scooters (where I work) because I had to get my schedule. I took them in the back where we cook and into the walk-in. Garrett screamed and Charlie loved it and wanted to keep going into the freezer! But the walk-in is cold enough as it is. After that little pit stop we zoomed off to Nana and Papa's house. One we got there I planted myself in a chair outside and didn't move. I didn't even want to talk to be honest. I was straight POOPED. Funny how that happens....it was a long day after all. Nana made roast and potatoes for us but I wasn't even hungry =/ I ate a lot of popcorn at the movies. It's my favorite :) We stayed there til about 8 and then headed home. Charlie and Garrett got quick baths, teeth brushings, and story readings, and off to bed they were. They were both out within 10 minutes. Ahhhh. quiet time :) I thought it would never come! It was a great day thought, even with all the flexibilities. If everything went perfectly it would have been pretty boring! So that was day 7...stay tuned for today, day 8! <3
Popcorn and skittles, Ashley
