Coffee Break

On Sunday Greg and I decided that we were going to go out with the boys. We wanted to get out of the house and decided to go out for coffee. It's definitely not as easy to go out now that we have twins. We decided to go to Starbucks and thought we could sit outside, after we got the boys out of the car and into the stroller, Greg decided it was too hot to sit outside. So, we decided to go to Panera since their outdoor tables have umbrellas that provide shade. We didn't want to load the stroller back up, so I walked across the shopping center parking lot to Panera, taking the long way since I couldn't go up stairs with the stroller and I had to use the ramp. When we got there, we found out their patio was closed for some reason, so we decided we'd just go in and have coffee, but we thought the stroller was too big to try and get around tables, so we took both carseats out and went in and found a table. I sat with the boys while Greg took the stroller to the car and put it up. When he got back, he sat with the boys and I went up and ordered our frozen mochas and a cookie. They were out of the frozen mochas and had to make some more which took about 15 minutes. By the time we finally got our coffee, we only had about 10-15 minutes before the boys started stirring a little. We wanted to get home before they started fussing, so we finished out coffee on our drive home. It was quite a different experience going out for coffee with twins than it was when it was just the two of us. It wasn't bad at all, it was really nice to get out of the house and do something normal. It'll take us a little while to get things figured out, but pretty soon I think it'll be no big deal to hop in the car with the boys and go places.

Here's some pictures from our little outing.

Carter looks like he's crying here, but he wasn't. It's weird, sometimes he'll make a face like he's about to start crying or screaming and then he'll just go back to sleep.
