A Day Off

Alicia and I met up this morning with the kids at Krispy Kreme.  Nothing starts a holiday off better than getting the kids hyped up on sugar. 
 
 
 
Afterwards I thought it would nice if the boys and I took Steve & his co-workers some donuts.  Is this not the cutest thing ever!
 
 
They love the climb the horse outside the building.
 
Before we left Krispy Kreme Cooper & Jake were trying to figure out a way to still hang out and play.  Alicia said we could come over, I hate to impose last minute but Cooper seriously begged me to go play.  So impose we did.  We were there all of about 10 minutes before Jake started passing out cookies and juice.  I guess donuts weren't enough.
 
Nora cracks me up.  There are 4 boys there, complete chaos all around, and it doesn't phase one single bit.  I barely even noticed she was there.  She did stat to warm up to me, it may be because I opened up a candy cane for her.  That was after Jake brought in a bucket of candy canes for everyone.  If you are keeping track that is donuts, juice, cookies, and candy canes.
 
Alicia offered to let us stay for lunch but Cooper had a follow-up ENT appointment and I thought it might be best to take them home to let them re-group before we go to our appointment right at nap time.  Luckily we got in and out quickly.
 
So we all know Cooper is scared of dogs, Alicia was kind enough put Reece up in her cage as not to scare Cooper.  Before we left he got brave and wanted to see and pet Reece.  I love it that he is getting braver.
 
I love Cameron's face in this one.
 
 
While eating lunch Cooper asked if we could go to the pet store to get a dog.  I think we need a few more brave moments with other dogs first buddy.
 
I love it that we could take a break from our routine and just have a fun day.  Thanks for letting us crash your place Alica.
