St. Patrick's Day & Our Week So Far

Sunday was St. Patrick's Day. I put the boys in their green St. Patrick's Day shirts and gave them some green goodies. They had green lime jello and green rice krispie treats that I cut into shamrocks. Evan LOVED the jello. It was the first time they'd ever had jello. Greg told him to eat it with his hands so he could feel how jiggly it was and just experience all of it.

Carter didn't know what to think of his jello. He didn't like the fact that it jiggled. I convinced him to take a bite and he took several until he got a bite big enough that it jiggled when he brought it to his mouth and then he was done and asked for an orange.

Evan also loved the rice krispie treats.

Carter wouldn't eat the rice krispie treats. He had just woke up from a nap, so I don't know if that's why he was so picky or if he didn't like that it was green, but Evan loved it all enough for the both of them.

It was rainy and nasty out on Sunday and I think the boys were feeling it. The dreary weather makes it hard to have the energy to do much, so after their nap, we let them watch some Veggie Tales. Normally, they're jumping on the couch or playing with toys while they watch tv, but not on Sunday.

Monday morning we woke up to this. Boo!!!! I feel like this is the longest winter ever. We didn't have our multiples play group, and it was another long day, cooped up. We made a quick trip to the store, but no playing in the yard or park visits for us.

Tuesday morning, I volunteered at the boys school and when we got home, they decided that they were going to skip their nap. So, after Greg got home, we went to the mall so I could get some hand soap from Bath and Body Works. Of course, Evan falls asleep in the car because they were both exhausted, so I took Carter in with me and Greg stayed with Evan so he could get a little catnap. Carter was an angel. He stayed with me, he was so good in the store and didn't touch anything, he was nice and really seemed to love the one on one time.  I let him lead the way after I got my soap, the boys favorite thing about the mall is having so much room to walk. We finally got to the kids play area and he was happy to play in there by himself. It was just so weird having one kid. Weird, and easy. ;)

Greg woke Evan up and brought him inside so he could play some, but he was not happy that he was woke up. He wanted to walk around, so we took them by to see the Easter bunny since there was nobody in line. Both boys were so happy to see him and wanted to say hi and bye, but not sit in his lap. I'm glad we were able to see how they'd react in a relaxed setting instead of getting them dressed up, taking them there and waiting in line only to find out they don't want to sit on his lap. We're going to take them to an Easter Egg hunt this year, so I'm hoping they'll have an Easter Bunny there that they might be more comfortable with. 

Evan asked for a treat, so I got them cake pops from Starbucks. They loved them.

We let the boys play at the play area. As you can see, Evan was just a blur, they were just running and running. They had a great time and didn't want to leave.
We went by another store and then met their friend Konnor, and his mom at Taco Bell for dinner. I didn't get any pictures, but they had a blast. Our Taco Bell has a play area and the boys played and played. Our Taco Bell has a fresco menu that's not listed, but it's about 6-7 healthy items, so we were able to have a good dinner and talk while the boys played. It's nice that they're getting to an age where we can relax a little more while they play.
