One Saturday, we decided what we really needed was some HUGE brownie sundaes.
So we went to BD's Mongolian Grill and we ordered 4 big bowls of amazingness.
And you should have seen the looks of jealousy on the faces of several kids in the restaurant. I know that they would have ordered one of these for dinner if their mom's would have let them.
We paired up the kids so they could share...in the hopes that
a) they would actually finish it someday
b) there would be a big kid/little kid balance to the whole thing
So you know that I couldn't put the boys together and Laney and Anna together. The boys would be done in no time and clamoring for more while we all waited for the little girls to finish their whip cream layer.
The Pumpkin Run celebrated it's 15th year, so we decided to try to run/walk as a family. Mark and the 3 oldest ran and I took the 3 youngest and the double stroller with the goal of running as much as possible and walking the rest.
I put Anna and Everly in the stroller and me and Laney started out with gusto!
After 20 minutes, Laney decided this was the worst thing we have ever done and she started the Great Complaining Campaign of 2013.
Luckily, Anna has energy to spare and ran/walked the rest of the way. She also refused to wear her jacket (it was freezing) and so everytime we passed by any other responsible adults I made sure to say, "Are you sure you won't wear your jacket?" just to ward off any parent to parent judginess.
