Busy Week

What a busy week we had this week.
Tuesday I thought was going to be a really busy day. Here is what I had planned, Big boys to school 8:30, (Take Avrah to Ryan's so she can take her to school at 9:30) at 8:35, WIC apt at 9, Dr.'s Apt. for babies at 10:45. Here is what really happened, everything went as scheduled until after the WIC class, it got over earlier then I expected and I made it all the way across town to the dr.'s apt at 10, I didn't want to wait in the car for 30 minutes so I took the boys to a close by park. Here are some pics of that.

it was cold and wet out but the boys got about 20 minutes of outside play time. Then we went back to the dr.'s office, went in got signed in, went to check, and then found out that no I didn't have an appointment on the 6th, it was actually on the 16th! GRR. So by this time the boys have missed their morning nap and my day is pretty much a bust, oh well at least we had a good time at the park. Oh and my friend Ryan brought me Bueno for lunch.
On Wednesday I had a play date with my twin mommy friends. We found this church playground that is fenced in and has big equipment for the big kids and little equipment for the little kids and also picnic tables, all inside the fence. It is so nice to not have to worry about one of your little ones escaping to the parking lot when you are busy with the other one. There were 5 mommies 2 of which had 4 of their children and the other 3 of us had only our babies. One momma left before I got my camera out. We sat all the babies down on our blankets all patched together to make one big spot for them and fed them their lunches, although I didn't get any pictures of this, it really was very cute. I did however get some pictures of them all playing together

From the front to the back. Darla's boys Ayden and Ashton. In the middle Dana's girls Maya and Camille (not sure which is which..sorry Dana if I'm wrong, but I think that Maya is inside with the two pigtails and Camille is out with just the one).  Big boys in the background Gavin (Dana's) and Zander (Rachel's). Rachel also had the only Boy/Girl twins Jonathan and Isabella there, but they are only 9 1/2 months and didn't get in the pictures somehow.
Rachel did however get a picture of us mommies trying to get those 6 babies to all look at us at the same time. Very comical.
Darla, Dana, Me

See the toy in this picture, See the steps/ladder that Darla is helping her son up. Micah was trying to climb up it and I guess he was going a little slower then usual, Hosea comes over and I thought he was going to push brother out of the way or try to climb under him or pull him down, but what he did was the sweetest thing I have ever seen, he reached down to Micah's foot and tried to give him a push up to help him climb up. It was the sweetest thing, and I didn't even recognize it at first. Dana pointed it out. It was so very sweet, I hope that kind of behavior continues.

On Saturday we went to the fair with Jeremy's Dad and Millie (Paw Paw and Memaw). We went first thing in the morning as soon as they opened it was great, a little chili out, but it was not busy at all so it worked out nicely. We saw all the exhibits, ate lots of yummy fair food, and rode rides.

On the Swings, Judah was also on the swings but he was on the other side and we couldn't see him

Finally free of the stroller the little guys get to play!

We came home took a short nap and then we were off to dinner at a friends house. As we were leaving and getting into the van to go home josiah said "I sure am going to miss that guy." He is so funny. Tomorrow we are going to Shalomfest. Should be fun.

This weekend I celebrated my 10th Anniversary. The actual anniversary date is the October 2nd. We didn't do anything really out of the ordinary on Friday. Kids went to school, I went to lunch with my mom. There was a fall festival and the boys' school that we went to. Usually Jeremy has class on Friday nights so I invited my BFF Ryan to go with us. She is the president of the PTA at her kids' school Vandever. I thought she  might like to come and get some ideas for their thing that they do. Plus I didn't want to take all 5 kids by myself. She was excited to go as were her kids, I think. Turned out that Jeremy did not "have" to go to class as they were reviewing for a test that his teacher told him he would have no problem with. So he got to go with us. The kids had a lot of fun and so did we. Saw Danny he is one of the contestants on this season of  The Biggest Loser. He looks GREAT! His kids go to W.C. with the boys. Also found out how far he gets in the competition.

Saturday we had planned to wake up early and do yard work, but the ground was pretty damp so we slept in instead, and then we went to a "Barbeque Tasting" to benefit The Little Lighthouse. Had some good BBQ and some not-so-good BBQ. Found out that the babies LOVE brisket! After that we took the kids to my moms house where we put Avrah, Hosea and Micah down for naps, which they promptly decided they were not going to take. Jeremy and I then took the big boys over to the Double Tree Hotel, where we had booked a room for the night. They have an indoor pool and we thought the big boys would like to go swimming, we spent about 2 1/2 hours in the pool, hot tub, steam room and sauna. Also learned a great lesson about hotels and little boys. Don't leave them alone in the room (even to go to the bathroom) with the remote to the TV or they WILL order pay-per-view and you will end up spending $8  on 20 minutes of a movie that they have already seen. (Wizards of Waverly Place the be exact).
Then Jeremy took me home to start getting ready and took the boys to meet Ryan at the church. I took a shower got dressed and went over to Victoria's house so she could do my make up for me. (pictures to follow), came back to the house, packed up our stuff and went to dinner.
We went to Benali's, it is a little italian restaurant. We love it. For some reason for the last 4 years or so we have gone there every anniversary and every valentines day. I highly recommend going.
We then spent the night at the hotel. Sunday morning we went to breakfast at IHOP, went to mom's to pick up the babies, hung out there for a while, ate some lunch, came home put babies and Avrah down for nap. Ryan brought the big boys home and hung out for a while. Played on the computer and just relaxed, until we put the kids to bed and then Jeremy and I did Jilllian Michaels Shred 1.
It was a great weekend. Probably will be a semi-busy week. and now for some pictures.
My new outfit. I know how Tim Gunn feels about leggings, but I think even he would think them ok if he saw my legs without them. :).

 My make up done by Victoria. (Thank you by the way) I think this is a funny picture because my left eye is droopy (probably because of the drink with dinner) and my eyes are bloodshot from the chlorine in the pool.

Jeremy also looked great but somehow we didn't get a picture with both of us in it.

Here is a link to my sisters blog (hope you don't mind Anna), she wrote a very nice one for me on my anniversary, in case you want to read it. It was very nice and made me cry.  Also some nice wedding pictures too.
