|Aww my kids are sweet.. look at them sitting together, |
watching an educational program on TV.
Oh who am I kidding, they are just in a trance from
watching Scooby Doo for the 247th time.
|All dressed up for her date night with Daddy! |
Yes, she has a better tan then me and I am jealous.
2008: Sophia at age two, with her beloved bunny.
Family picture 2008 - No matter how hard we tried, we could not get Sophia to smile.
2009: Brandi came to our house to capture some amazing pictures of a two week old Tallen.
2010: She was even there to celebrate this little boy's first birthday!
However Brandi is very patient and she must have sprinkled her magic picture-taking pixie-dust on my kids (in the form of candy) because they actually smiled for the camera. "Flat out bribery," she said is what works best for kids. So in addition to the candy, we promised to buy Sophia lots of sand toys for our beach trip next week. For the first time ever, we left a photo session thinking "Man, we got a lot of great shots tonight!" In just a few weeks, I should have the photos to post.
Sunday was Father's Day and I decided to treat my husband with breakfast in bed. After some covert text-messaging, I convinced Trey to stay in bed until I could get the kids to cooperate by "surprising" daddy with pancakes and coffee.
|Disclaimer - These are actually my pancakes |
and they look much prettier than what I actually served Trey.
After throwing Trey's Father's Day presents in a gift bag (no, I did not have time to wrap it), Tallen gave it to his Daddy. Inside were two dri-fit shirts and some running socks. I promise I am not boring, these were AWESOME gifts for Trey and he loved them!. However, one of the shirts was too small so I headed back to Target (Trip Two of the three-trip Target weekend) to exchange it while Trey put Tallen down for his nap. Sophia came along with me to cash in on her photo session bribe (fun sand toys for the beach) while I exchanged Trey's shirt for a bigger size.
Back at home, Trey tried on his shirt again but this time it was too BIG! Apparently, the first shirt I bought was a SMALL (I picked up a MEDIUM hanger but never checked the size ), then I exchanged it for a LARGE. So, can you guess what happened next?
Yes, it was Trip Three of my three-trip Target weekend.
This time Trey AND both kids came with me to Target so he could try the shirt on and get the right size. I feel like we were trapped in the story, "The Three Little Bears." The first shirt was too small, the second shirt was too big, and the third shirt was just right!!!
Ok, I am exhausted already and I still haven't got to our Father's Day dinner. Look for more tomorrow in Father's Day part Two.
