#11: Christine E
Whew! It’s been a busy few days. Hanging out with these kids, tires me out! The kids were away so much in early July, they both missed their bestfriend’s birthday’s. My mom guilt kicked in, AND you all know how much I like birthdays (hah!), so I had a little “mini-party” for the kids and their two friends at Chuck E. Cheese’s. Yes, I know I have lost my friggin’ marbles, it was a weak moment.
It wasn’t nearly as bad as it sounds and I am embarrassed to admit it, but I think that I actually like Chuck E.’s pizza (honest)! I am also a diet cola addict so the unlimited pop keeps me happy!
This is Sam and his buddy Matt (I’m too lazy to fix the red eye). If you come here (this blog) often you’ll notice that Sam has a hair cut. After many, many comments that went something like this, “with hair like that he should be a girl”, or “too bad he’s not a girl, he has beautiful hair”, or “oh my, I thought he was a girl, he has such beautiful hair” , guess what? He cut his own hair! HELLO people, cut the ‘girl’ crap! This new ‘do’ is just damage control, but he went from ‘cool surfer dude look’ –> ‘weird Prince and the Pauper bob-thingy’.
This is a bad photo of Georgia, really I just want to point out the red balloon, it is tied to the back button of her dress, it is my low-tech child monitoring system. I buy a balloon upon arrival and then I can sit back and easily spot her, where ever she goes. Very handy-dandy and quite ingenius if I do say so myself.
Really Chuck E.’s is not that bad for me. I sit in the corner with a book, pizza and an endless supply of diet cola. My children run wild (including the two year old). If they dare bother me, I say, “GO. PLAY. OR. WE. ARE. GOING. HOME. — off they run!
Today, we headed for Broadmoor Park, right in the middle of Sherwood Park! The kids really like this park, but I have to say the kids these days are getting more and more weird … just lOOk …
Just by fluke, these Star Wars folk (these guy are part of the Badlands Garrison) were arriving @ the park as we did. Kids were certainly impressed.
Without even putting down the Camera, I layed that ‘fake star trooper’ on his a$$. Notice the wimp is wearing a cute Mish Mish Tee and shorts.
One’s a chicken and this one’s obviously part monkey. I must say, “the Monkey looks very cute in her Deux par Deux dress (Lucy Collection Summer 2007)“.
Georgia perferred the bike racks, she is telling me what she thinks about my idea of playing ‘in’ the park. No need to point out the Bical Grippers she has on right?
We bribed her away from the bike racks, by pointing out a mama duck and her ducklings, waddling along the lake shore. Lovely Georgia, chased them back into the water! That is just one mama duck and her off-spring … she’s a brave, brave duck-woman!
Thanks to Lizzy, Georgia didn’t follow the ducks into the water, but she came really close. YES, I would have put down the camera had she actually gone in (well after a couple of quick shots, I would have FOR SURE).
Today (Friday July 20th) I am giving away a $25 Gift certicates to a lucky commenter. I will randomly draw the winner sometime after 9 pm on Friday (might even be Saturday or Sunday).
