Life according to my cell phone

We went back to Riverview park again because J requested to go "to that park that we brought food to when you went to buy clothes with Uncle Justin." Yes, she remembered bringing Chick-fil-a to this park a YEAR AGO when I took Justin black Friday shopping. That girl. Anyways, M can scale any height and gives me regular heart attacks.

I will never tire of seeing this boy in this frog costume.

Our pogo passes expire in March so I'm trying to go to all the places before it expires. That means Friday is now field trip day. We went to the zoo with our friends the Weidmans. The highlights ended being the fish in the pond near the parking lot and the ducks around the exhibits. Thankfully they got a kick out of the monkeys too or I would give up on these children.

M has also grown out of his clothes without telling me.

I tried to get a picture of him passed out on this chair but he woke up and hid.

We've enjoyed two full weeks of these two playing well with each other. Horseys!

We had a lovely time with amazing food down in Tucson for thanksgiving. My brother told me to put together the veggie tray so I had some fun with it. Without pinterest even.

They went to a Mexican food wedding rehearsal dinner and got these hats. They came out the next morning wearing them and singing, "We are the taco men" over and over and holding hands.

I took the pictures after the sealing and pretended I was a real photographer. After being super nervous all the pictures would be terrible, I had to send a screen shot to my sister to tell her she was right, they did turn out fine. (A black mark has now shown up on my cell phone camera lens and is not actually part of this photo)

Makutu's Island is another pogo pass place the kids love. I sort of hate it because you can't keep track of your kids in the tunnels unless you climb in with them. It wears me out, but it wears them out too. This time we met Husband for lunch at a park after and made it pretty much the best toddler day ever.

He was sitting there so smug, eating peanut butter from the jar for breakfast (not sure how this came about) that I had to take a picture. I mean, that grin.

For an early bday present, I finally made the Tesla test drive happen that was supposed to happen last year on his bday. Ladies, this is a really easy, cool, FREE thing for the people in your life who buy their own presents. And you can book it online :) We spent an hour in the car trying out the autopilot (I had the hardest time letting go of the steering wheel and letting it drive but it is COOL) and they even set the route up so we could floor it from a complete stop on the freeway onramp. I appreciated the warning the associate gave me to put my head back on the head rest because gets up to speed as fast as a roller coaster. Another plus, they don't talk sales to you AT ALL. It used to be illegal in AZ for them to mention prices because Teslas aren't sold through a dealer and blah blah blah business model,  blah blah archaic law. If someone wants to buy one, you have to do it online so the associates are really just information and have zero interest if you are purchasing or not. I'm pretty sure I'd rather buy a house with $150,000 but maybe someday we'll be stupid rich and buy one.

Who needs Christmas when you can relive Halloween?

Seriously, folks couldn't tell who I was. That's what I get for wearing weird make up on a regular basis :)

Here was the whole fam for context

That was for the church Halloween party and minds were changed by the time actual Halloween came about. As long as I don't have to do any extra work, they can pick anything from the dress up box. M chose Peter Pan.

J chose Fever Elsa (the summer dress from the short sequel before Cinderella. The sleeves aren't as itchy). Obviously, she chose her own fancy pose.

M has asked to trick or treat every week since. They got more candy going around the single loop of my neighborhood than I did after two hours of trick or treating when I was a kid. It pays being some of the only kids on the block because everyone just gives them handfuls.
