Today I had an itch to do something different, something new and exciting. I considered being really wild and cleaning the kitchen floor, but, instead, we decided to go on an adventure and see where we ended up. Sometimes I am a tad bit hesitant to take the five girls out alone. I can't imagine why?
We wound up at an unfrequented playground. I am not sure, but I think Francesca liked the swings.
It's important to look cool when you are swinging.
Poor Francesca has a really tough time walking on any surface that is not totally smooth and flat. She just has such tiny feet and her big toe is much smaller than her other toes, so she is off balance. She fell about ten times, but she was determined not to be carried. I need to find some shoes that won't hurt her feet and will give her more stability. Anyone have any ideas?
Francesca was totally freaked out by Mr. Dinosaur. She wouldn't get near him.
The joys of sliding.
It's always nice to have a little pick me up from a sister.
The playground was also frustrating for Victoria. She wants so much to climb and do things herself. She tries really hard to get her foot up on a step, but it is tough when you can't bend your legs.
Someday soon baby, you will climb!
On the way home, I decided to stop for another treat. There is nothing better than a warm Kristy Kreme doughnut.
Can you just imagine the grief little Catherine is going to give me as a teenager?
This is my new motto. I mean the part about "creating joyful memories". It's probably unlikely that I will be creating the "delicious tastes" part with my cooking.
This sweet guy gave us a whole dozen doughnuts free!
Don't ask how many doughnuts are left for tomorrow. Some rotten person even licked the icing and sprinkles off a doughnut and then put it back. Oh wait, that was me!
I foolishly thought that the babies would be exhausted from their big day and take a long, long nap. Perhaps, sugar and lard are not totally conducive to a restful slumber. Everyone was totally hyper, except for me. I was in a sugar coma.
Next time, we are hitting the broccoli bar.
