No one is happier about the warm weather than I am. We went to my parents' for dinner tonight and the kids had a blast. Here's some photo-documentation:
Tyler and Nicole got to ride the 4-wheeler with Grandpa. They love going on adventures with him. Nicole pretends to be Dora the Explorer and my dad is Diego (her cousin). Tyler is Dash (from The Incredibles) and poor Tori is Isa (an iguana). Someday she'll be old enough to fight back and I have a feeling that lizard is gonna kick somebody's butt for leaving her out of these explorations.
Tori is trying to decide if she really likes swinging. At first she was shaking and scared, but after a few minutes, she relaxed and seemed to really enjoy herself.
Tyler got to DRIVE the tractor today. all. by. himself. You would have thought he'd died and gone to heaven. Thanks for not going too far away from him, Grandpa.
Tori might be new to the swing, but Nicole has been waiting (not so patiently) for months to get back on. She's pretty happy about the turn in the weather.
When the kids were tired of swinging, 4-wheeling, and tractor driving (wait, they didn't get tired, I just forced them to go in the house) it was time to take a bath and get in their jammies. Of course, I forgot pajamas for the kids. We found pajamas that would fit Nicole and Tori, but no luck for Tyler. My mom pulled out this shirt that he could sleep in. I LOVE this shirt. My mom had it made for my dad when she found out that she was pregnant with me. My dad was 22 or 23 in this picture. I wore this shirt all the time as a kid. It seems like most of my pictures are of me in that shirt. I'm so glad she still has it. I want to frame it and hang it up somewhere. So here's a picture of Tyler playing Wii in my favorite article of clothing of all time:
All in all, it was a good night. No one got seriously injured, no big fights, and I ate way too much taco salad. Here's a few extra pictures of the night:
