toddler mania

we had a full weekend with family & friends. friday night was a mom's night out for shopping & dessert. i picked up loads of gymboree shorts for little d at the mothers of multiples garage sale.

speaking of garage sales, mimi & papa came to help with the babies so we could have one of our own. we made a whopping $200 (insert sarcasm here). even more importantly, we are half way to a spotless garage! i must say that i was not on my usual bargain-making-game, answering most inquisitions with, "how much do you want it for?" our goal was to haul off as little as possible so quarters were the going rate.

yesterday we enjoyed a play date with our first time parents class. we headed to fudruckers afterwards...should have counted the number of children age 3 and under. we ended the night with a surprise 30th birthday party for a friend at the riggs house. toddler toys, capri suns & ice cream cone cupcakes say it all. the babies had such a great time, we stayed until 8:30 pm (that's 2 hours past bedtime)!

i must say that i was the proud mommy of a VERY independent davis! i was solo last night since ryan had a youth impact meeting & we wondered how it would go. if you don't know davis, he tends to be easily overstimulated & anxious around large groups & strangers in general. there are very few people he feels comfortable with. it is no small celebration that he happily went to others & played independently among a crowd of at least 40. way to go, little buddy! we ended the night with 6 toddlers in a tub of murky water...always the sign of a good time. (too bad we didn't have the camera handy.)

here are some pics from the park

berk is fascinated by babies, unless i am holding one.
that doesn't usually go over very well.
