Just a boring tuesday.
Today I should have stayed home and worked on the window treatments for our room but since Labor Day is coming up and the beach closes after Labor Day I figured we had better make at least one more trip. It was lovely! James has speech therapy in the morning and then we packed up and headed out. I love how he put his hat on- don't you? He's gotten quite the independent streak recently and wants to do everything HIS way. We spent a few hours at the beach, the boys playing in the sand and my lounging in my chair watching them play. I did read a few chapters of my book but with no lifeguard on duty I needed to keep at least one eye on the kiddos. After a couple hours I packed them up again ad we went to meet Frank at Pizza hut for the lunch buffet. $10 for all 4 of us to eat- you can't beat that! And sine it is a buffet there is no waiting which is a must with 2 little guys after a long morning at the beach!
We had a bit of incident coming home involving car keys- the second one this week so you would have thought I'd learn after the first. I picked them up from daycare on Monday and as we were getting into the car Xander somehow managed to lock the doors and then shut his so the car was locked with the keys inside. We had to hang out at daycare until Frank could get home and bring us the spare key. The yesterday after Pizza hut we went to Wal Mart to get milk and James somehow managed to get my keys out of my purse, chew on them for awhile, and then conveniently drop them in a moment when I wasn't looking. So there I am in the Wal Mart parking lot with no keys, 2 gallons of milk and 2 kids totally ready for a nap! Ugh. Despite the extreme lack of help from the Wal Mart staff I did find the keys and we were on our way but there was quite bit of frantic searching followed by the realization that not only did I not have my keys but the spare key was still in the car from the day before. Oh yeah and guess where my cell phone was... in the car. So if I didn't find my keys I was really stuck.
The boys fell asleep on the way home and stayed that way as I put them into their beds thank goodness and then instead of working on window shades I took a nap too! Oh well the shades will wait till this weekend right?
