I have lots to tell you about - I'm in that kind of blogging mood, y'all :) You know I'm not great at keeping it short, but I'll do my best. Yup. Quick and breezy me. ;)
Her words that made me feel that familiar lump in my throat and had me aching to have my babies close to me:
3) The kids and I spent the day yesterday at the Newport Aquarium. So much fun we had. We took advantage of the winter special: 2 kids get in free with the purchase of an adult ticket ---- > ($22??! Yes, I am the cheap-o that said it out loud when I saw the price tag - phew. Good thing for winter specials).
Oh, and puu-lease - forgive the dark and grainy photos. Available light in the very dark aquarium = zero.
Do you think they knew that a mammoth shark was swimming right over their heads? Um no. Their eyes bugged when I showed them the photo.
Jellyfish are my fave... so pretty, eh?
Mama caved. After we got to pet the sharks, we had to get some shark face painting. Mac wanted a mean shark - hence, the dripping blood. Yep.
No, we did not pet any tigers; however, Lily was dying to be a tiger. She was convinced that everyone thought that she was a real tiger. "Mama, Daddy will think I'm real. And I'll roar at him. But then he might know that it's me because tigers can't walk. And they don't have hair like me."...."Yes, baby, you're right."
4) Big dealio sale coming tomorrow - stay tuned!
It's good, people.
It involves a CD of digital images so you can print 'til your heart's content. I'm doing this dealio once, and only once. And it's for a great cause. Tomorrow. Be here or be square. ;)
