So the kids were all cranky when we got home from the Bridal outing. I did some cleaning, and talked with Karl, then we tried to figure out dinner. The kids were VERY divided about what they wanted. So in the end we all went to different places to eat, and met up at a park that is down the hill from the castle (Pictures are in an upcoming post) We had Sawyer and Judah in our car, and they had lots of opinions about dinner. But we made it.
After forcing the kids to eat the food that they demanded we buy them everyone was able to relax a little and play on the playground. The kids were having a hard time figuring out the balance on the teeter totter, so Karl was helping them out when this just kind of happened.
Once there were a few on, this naturally just happened:
My favorite part of this whole day was the mid 90’s dressed youth in the background.
Karl was having a good time too.
The rest of us were having fun just watching the cute.
After all of that excitement I was happy to sit down.
Up on the shelf.
It was after bed time when we finally left the park. We put our kids to bed, (The rest of the kids stayed up) and left them in the care of Pappy Jimbo and Grammy Lynny.
Me, Karl, Malia, Danielle, and Zach went to Duck House in downtown Portland for a late dinner.
My phone was dead, so I got no pictures. Long story short, we got TONS of dumplings. And Noodles.
And Malia got a very true fortune cookie. Since she starts her new job with the state on Monday.
When we got home, our kids were blessedly still asleep. Grandma and the girls had passed out. Ethan, Sawyer, Judah, Asher and Aubrey were still going.
We went upstairs and passed out.
