A Trip to the Mall

One night a couple of weeks ago, we met up at the mall after work because we had a couple of quick errands to run there. And, to go to the mall on the weekend is a real beating. We even had a bite to eat at the mall. It was actually a nice little weeknight outing as a family. Here are a few photos I snapped with the phone camera:

More Cousin Fun

So the same night the kids played with the big pink car, they had fun inside too. Here are the photos:

The played SIMON for a bit of parent nostalgia

Incidentally, my mother-in-law does not decorate with - or even tolerate - blankets strewn about her home, except when the littles come over and decorate for her. Ahem.

That night, we had dinner with S's Aunt Sis and Uncle Jim. They brought the kids presents. The kids had fun opening then, and playing with them.

And Papaw had fun tossing LM and the others up in the air!

There may or may not have been raspberries on the tummy involved...

There were both having fun!

And this container looks like a hat to more than one of them.

Later, the kids started wrestling

Then Nonna got into the act!

Revving Up the Pink Roadster

Alexandra and Sophia got a big pink battery powered car for Christmas - one they can ride in together. They brought it over to Nonna and Papaw's house one night when we were getting together, and all the kids had a lot of fun with it. Andrew was sick on this night, so he missed out on the fun:

When we arrived, the three girls were tearing it up.

LM hung out with Nonna and watched the girls.

Then Alexandra gave LM a ride!

IMG_2082-2.jpg
Then the girls started chasing them.
I love how all of them look like they are having such a good time in this photo.

Then Katherine drove for a while!
The dads stayed close...

IMG_2098-2.jpg
Then LM tried to drive. 

IMG_2100-2.jpg
He required some assistance.

The kids had a great time!

See you soon.

More Dress Up

The boy is really very into dressing up and pretending right now. Here are some more photos of him dressing up in his play outfits, mostly taken by the phone camera:

The Stink Eye

IMG_7914-2.jpg
When the boy gets all pouty and starts with the mean faces...

IMG_7915-2.jpg
...round here we call it the STINK EYE.

IMG_7916-2.jpg
He's pretty good at it.  

IMG_7917-2.jpg
Obviously these are camera phone captures...

IMG_7918-2.jpg
...who wouldn't want to capture this? 

IMG_7919-2.jpg
I hope your Friday is stink eye free from here on out.

See you soon.
