Just when we started to get dressed I heard a funny beeping sound outside. I looked out the window to discover that they were here to drop off our new fridge (5 minutes before the beginning of the 8 hour window they had originally given us!).
It was a super hot day - one where you definitely did not want to play outside - and since we no longer had to wait for our fridge to be delivered, I decided to take the twins on an adventure. We started by going to visit the Cascades Humane Society (sorry for the poor picture quality...I felt akward bringing out my huge camera, and chose to take covert phone pics instead!).
A few of the dogs we saw. The twins know that dogs make a panting noise, so they did that constantly while we were there. I also showed them how dogs drink their water, and they practiced sticking out their tongues (a new trick)!
After spending some time with them we rushed over to Olive Garden to meet up with on of my best friends (and housemates) from college and her husband and her parents (who essentially adopted all of us girls when they would come and visit). We enjoyed a wonderful meal and time of catching up.
The whole gang!
The kicker? On the way home Allie got really fussy, and we weren't exactly sure why...until we got home. I thought I saw a flash of something yucky as Lucas was getting her out of the seat, but Lucas thought I was being paranoid after our Cracker Barrel experience. That was until he set her down and saw the ginormous mess she left on his shirt! That's right - an exceptional blowout. It covered her clothes, legs, and shoes. It filled her car seat. It even got on her hands...and (gasp! gag!) on her face! It was a mess. Perhaps it is a sign that we shouldn't eat out with the twins for a while...
...but Ryan was confident it was edible!
Allie knew the hairy stuff was supposed to come off...
Ryan decided that maybe it was a phone (note: EVERYTHING is a phone right now!)
They liked the raw corn so much that I had a really hard time getting it away from them to cook...and then they were very hesitant to eat it once it was cooked! Oh, well...
And THAT was our weekend!
I will try to post one more time this week. We have been extremely busy, but with really, REALLY ordinary things (for the most part) which doesn't make for very exciting blogging... We are getting ready to head up North for Lucas working week away, and trying to get everything set up for VBS, and trying to cram in some fun social events, and all of that combined with normal life is keeping us really busy!
