Well, as usual, this might take awhile, but here is my second installment for those of you vaguely interested ;)
So most of our trip was spent walking around the city doing Kid-friendly things....Skate parks,
pools, Zoo... thankfully all of our children got along really well, Jenn's boys are absolutely ADORABLE. My kids loved them!
Jackson decided that little Henry was now going to be referred to as "mini Matt Damon"
:) So cute!
Now One of the great things about the city is that there is one of the last remaining FREE Zoos in the country!
I gave both Kids a camera to take pictures...because in my opinion.....if you want to get some interesting shots, let your kids use your camera...I love seeing their perspective on things, more than half the time I love what they capture!
Now our nights were spent Laughing, eating, having fun at restaurants, seeing the cool city lit up at night....
everyone we encountered were great like the ridiculously cute skateboarding guy we met at a shop, just ask Jenn....she'll back me up on that one ;) whoooooooo......(if we could have tucked him in our pockets, well, we would have) :)
Now the only place that wasn't so nice was a pub that we walked into with our kids.....the waitresses groaned LOUDLY about our kids.
now mind you, we have some of THE most well behaved children....
we sat down, were served, finished it up, kids completely quiet the WHOLE time...without prompting on our parts I might add.....
So I couldn't help but make a comment to the waitress as we left that
"that wasn't so painful was it?"
to which she replied that we had some REALLY well behaved kids.
so just because you see kids coming into a restaurant, do not assume that they will be monsters......they're still are some well behaved little people out there ;)
(sorry just had to say that out loud)
I believe that if you give your kids the tools, and the experiences they will learn the proper way to do things...making them better little individuals in the process right!?
o.k., off my miniature soapbox for today :)
i'm off to the shop to craft, rearrange and putz because I totally scored some cool vintage stuff yesterday that I am itching to get out......
I will hopefully wrap up my Field trip installment piece tomorrow.....
ending on the brightest little note with pictures of Jenn's adorable house,
because yes, I love to end things on a positive note.
SO cute and happy you'll want to move right in, I know I do
