The Park

When we go to the park, we always cause a scene. People always ask about the girls. This past weekend we went to the park and put the girls in the swing. So that we don't take up too many, we started putting them in the same swing with their backs to each other. They love it. They get to have mommy and daddy push them and be with each other.

When we went on Friday night, every one there made a comment like "What sweet babies", "Look mommy, babies", "Oh how cute". Wes and I aren't sure what to do. We don't know if we just smile and keep going, ignore the comments or start a conversation.

Family Bathrooms

I've always seen family bathrooms and was very curious. Before we had the girls, I have even asked Wes if he wanted to go in with me because we were "family". He always said no.

Anyway, today Wes and I took the girls to the mall. We had quite the adventure, eating, walking, the play area, and even a trip to the family bathroom. Wes and I have visited several with the girls. Mostly while I was nursing to feed the girls. Today both mommy and daddy had to go to the bathroom, so I was the lucky one and got to take them to the family bathroom. The one at the mall is cute. It has a little kid potty, a little kid sink, a little kid paper towel holder and even a little kid hand dryer. I was very impressed. It all went well until I had to flush the toilet. The girls cried because it made the loud whoosh sound.

Fun Pictures

Wes and I are cheap. I've been wanting to get the girls pictures taken in Las Colinas where I work. It's a really pretty area and a great place for pictures. The only problem is that photographers are expensive. So, we decided to experiment with our camera and the free software from Picasa. I think the pictures turned out good. If we want to get print, I'll just send them to Wal-Mart and pick them up. Here are some of our favorites, what do you think?

Night night

Posted by Picasa
Last night, the girls slept in night gowns for the first time. They looked really cute. They are getting to be such big girls.

We took the girls their first wedding. Surprisingly, it went well. Like all good Methodist wedding ceremonies, it was short and sweet. We only had to keep the girls quite for 30 minutes.

The reception went well too. It was in the old Planet Hollywood in the West End. We were able to be upstairs in a room where we could let the girls play and crawl around. They had a really good time and loved playing with some of our old friends. Everyone else had babysitters so the girls were the center of attention. Of course they had each other so they were happy.

Day off

It's been a rough few weeks at work. We have had our two big sales meetings that I help plan. It's always stressful and busy with a couple of late nights. In the past it's not as big a deal because it's only Wes at home, but now with the girls it's harder. One of the nights, I didn't see the girls at all that day. That makes me sad.

Anyway, I decided to take a couple of days off, today and Monday. Today, we had a full day. We went to McDonald's for lunch and to play. Then we came home and napped (the girls anyway). After that we met some friends (the Coddington twins and their mom) at Bonkers to play. We decided it was time to leave because it was really crowded and someone pooped in the play area. That was our cue to exit. Next was lunch at Chipotle and then home for another nap.

When we got home, we saw that Gracie had a nasty diaper rash. So, she got to have a trip to the pedi. Wes took her and they were making her snorty face when the pedi walked in. She laughed. Gracie and Wes came home and finished her nap (I took one too).

The last part of the day was steaks grilled out. A swim in the pool, followed by a nap and then a trip to Wal-Mart. The lines were so long, I pulled out the camera and took pictures of the girls in line. We did come up with a good system this time. One girl in the umbrella stroller and then one in the cart.

It was a really fun day!

Gracie has a new facial expression that she likes to make. She likes to squish up her face and snort. She does it when she's happy, sad, or mad. Lizzie on the other hand likes to have a messy face at every meal time and even gets food in her hair.

Fun Weekend

Its been a crazy week around here. We've been busy. Grandma, Papa, Sydney and Sam came to visit this past weekend and left Tuesday morning. We had a great time while they were here. We swam in the pool and went to Boomerangs. The kids were all exhausted after playing all day. Below are some pictures of the kids.
