Oh, What do you do when it's cold and snowing outside?

Marcus:I know, let's tip over the couch and jump off of it onto the cushions!
Mom: Ok, whatever keeps you entertained.

Or, We go to Florida!!! (Where it was also freezing)

Day Trip to the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine.

We were having a great time and then in good ol' Florida fashion boom, it started raining on us! We had to buy rain gear to keep us partially dry. The kids all had to change clothes once we got back to the car.

Fortunately, they had a couple of animal shows underneath some shelter! Marcus loved seeing all the exotic animals. He got to touch the thing below(can't remember the name of it) and a snake.

On the way home we stopped at a farmers market that the the biggest vegetables and fruits I had ever seen. I was really excited about the brussel sprouts still on the stalk!

We took the boys to the mall to have their pictures taken together. They did really good for 5 minutes then we were hard pressed to get them to hold still. The pictures turned out really good - I think they are some of the cutest boys ever!

SETH 23 months, MARCUS 4 1/2 years, MAX 19 months

We treated them to ice cream and chicken nuggets (in that order) when we were done. We decided to wait at the mall for the pictures, which was a bad idea. They boys were ready to go home and Natalie and I ended up spending more money on new hair straighteners. However, I used the "Is that the best you can do"talk technique and was very proud of the fact that we got 2 for the price of one...





There's nothing like a midnight snack, chocolate milk and a movie to keep the troops under control!
