oh how happy they were....



The boys woke up just shy of seven "very" anxious to wake daddy up, knowing that they had only a mere 12 hours to spend with him before their little souls would be shuffled back to bed. No time was spared as one open eye-lid from dad gave big A the green light to just start telling him as many things as he can think of, while at the same time managing to "carefully" toss his clothes on top of him and pull back the sheets (all in hopes of speeding up the waking up process). The day quickly turned into a trip to get new jammies (apparently the week of 40-50 degree balmy weather prompted big A's "need" for summer attire at night), a drive to our favourite coffee shop for bagels, a walk to the bookstore, a hide n' seek adventure, a few necessary meltdowns in between said activities, a game of cooties, a "jam" session (with more meltdowns), some good animal stories, more hide n' seek, and ulitmately two very exhausted boys content that they had succesfully used up all the bits of energy dad could possibly have to give to them that day.....well done boys.

(p.s....big A would like everyone to know that he is not "into" being photographed at the moment, hence the disproportionate amount of little M photos popping up in this blog......although I have a sneeking suspician if big A took a peek at my musings, he would immediately stress concern over the "uneveness" in how many photos each boy has displayed...)

what a great way to notice your day...i'm finding the important things in life are in the moments.....the kids forget the stuff in between (like the meltdowns) and remember the hide and seek....your photo as usual is lovely!
