spinning, spinning, spinning.

this weekend, i found myself
totally and completely
outnumbered by lots and lots (well, just 3) of little children.
B was gone on a quick golf trip (even if it didn't feel very quick to me).
soon, the children took over the entire house.

which, of course, included my bed.

so, i decided that we had to get out of the house.
and fast.

to the library we headed.

K picked some great books.
she also may have picked her nose.
but, we're working on limiting that to the bathroom only.

next stop:
ice cream, of course!

we all had fun picking out something special to eat.

K doesn't like ice cream for some strange reason.
so she got m&m's instead.

L simply enjoyed watching the fans spin
he even started signing "fan" at the ice cream store.
see, there are benefits to taking your kids out for a mid-afternoon sugar fix.

and my little sweetness who dances
e v e r y w h e r e
found a great spot to dance while we waited for the elevator.
the excess sugar in her system probably aided some of her dance moves.

and this little man even sported a sweet 'stache.

after an eventful and exhausting day, it's nice to sit down at dinner to find this:
even if you were the one who set the table.
(thanks for the plate, Gram!)

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
