We had a full weekend!

Saturday, my sister was borrowing the house for a Jamberry party, so the kids had fun playing together, and us girls had fun doing our nails.

For dinner, we all met up for chicken, where Caroline couldn't hang. The day just exhausted her.

Sunday morning, at Sunday School, Max's teacher brought several baby chicks, and he loved showing me how he gently held them.

After church, we met up for some more chicken to celebrate Raymond's birthday. You can never have too much chicken.

Ice Cream for Dinner

We had a late lunch on Tuesday, so we weren't too hungry at dinner time when we got back to Pittsburg. We decided to have ice cream for dinner, and the kids were super silly, so I had to snap some pictures! They drive me crazy, but man, I love these guys.

Tooth drama

Max lost his first tooth a few weeks ago. The remaining three teeth in front are all loose, but the right top one became even more loose while we were at Grandma's house. I even packed a little kit in my purse in case it came out at the zoo. On the way home, Max became determined to get it out. He spent a good hour or more wiggling and pulling, and analyzing the blood on the paper towel.

When we got home, I pulled on it a few times, and even though it was laying on it's side practically, it would not come out! We tried various strings, and they just kept slipping off, and different foods. I got scared that maybe it just wasn't ready, and I didn't want to hurt him, so we left it alone.

He came home from daycare yesterday with it loose as ever. I had done some asking around and some research, and I came home determined to get that thing out! Time for Mommy to put on her big girl panties and suck it up! I grabbed my supplies and my kid and it was on. I swabbed his gums with some Orajel, tied a loop in some dental floss, slipped it over the tooth around the root, and pulled the ends tight as I could and POP! Out came the tooth! Max kind of shrieked, and he cried, mainly because the Orajel tasted nasty. He chewed on some gauze for a bit, and was happy as a could be.

Spring Break in Tulsa (Pt 2)

Monday, Grandma and Grandpa both had to work, so we spent the day in Tulsa doing some shopping, and just hanging out. Later that night, after dinner, Walter and I got to go back out on our own, which kind of felt like a vacation, even though it was just a solo trip to Target!

On our way back to the house, we came across this giant thing being pulled through the intersection. It was kind of amazing to watch.

Tuesday, the boys had been planning to golf, so us girls decided the zoo sounded fun. I guess the boys got jealous, because they decided to come to the zoo too! Ha! 

The weather was kind of chilly and windy, but we didn't let that stop us from having a fun time. Everyone else in town had the same idea, because the place was PACKED.

This is what happens when I try to get a picture with the kids - silly faces.

They had a moving dinosaur exhibit inside. Walter took the kids through, and Max thought it was awesome.

Finally! An animal they can touch!

This little guy was showing off!

Max insisted on picking his nose, "like I do every time!"

So gorgeous!

We grabbed lunch after, and little miss slept right through. We wore her out!

Spring Break in Tulsa (Pt 1)

Max is on Spring Break this week. Walter decided to take off a couple days, so we could save a little bit of money on daycare. That turned into me taking off too, so we could spend a few days in Oklahoma. Max has been working on blowing bubbles, and on the way, he got some really good bubble gum, and to his delight, he got some really good bubbles!

Saturday, while we were hanging out with the family, we realized that it was Pi Day (3/14), so we HAD to make a pie. Caroline and Ayden helped Grandma, and one pie turned into two pies, into three pies - we had chocolate, peanut butter, and custard. 

Sunday, Grandma and Grandpa had to work at the BOK Center, so they scored us some tickets to hockey, which is always my favorite. Uncle Richard and Aunt Audra came too.

We had a little bit of time to spare, so we found this fun candy/cupcake store to spend our money time.

The game was awesome! The Oilers won 8-1, and I think we've only ever seen them lose, so that was really exciting. We also got to see a poor girl get hit by a fly-a-way puck right in the face. Ouch!
