Another fun filled day

26 11 2008

Today was another adventure.

First thing this morning, I took the kids (all three) over to Nanny and Poppas for the day.  Then, my wife and I went out and did all our christmas shopping.  It took a few hours and we had to come back twice to feed the baby (she is nursing exclusively), but we managed to get nearly everyone on our list covered.

The first time we came back to feed the baby our youngest son came in and brightened up when he saw me and said “Hi, Daddy!!”.  You had to be there, but it was a nice moment :).  His older brother caught a lizard and was looking for a jar to put it in.  He fixed it up with water and some grass and spent much of the afternoon figuring out how to get it some bugs to eat.  He never did reach his goal.  The younger son got a jar and put water and grass in it and spent much of the afternoon figuring out how to get a lizard in it!  He didn’t reach his goal either.  Maybe tomorrow…

After finishing up the christmas shopping, my wife and I went out for a 5K run.  We each run several times a week, but we NEVER get to run together.  In fact, today was the first time I think.  The weather was nice and we enjoyed it.

Then, to top off the day, my parents got free tickets to the Mavs – Pacers game at American Airlines Center.  The Mavs got the victory.  We took the train there and back which is a staple of our Mavs game expeditions that the kids seem to enjoy as much as the game itself.

And, now we are home with the kids in bed.  We did manage to make our oldest son feel guilty enough about his lizard being trapped inside that jar that when we got home, he woke up enough to ask me to take the lizard out and let it go in the backyard.  We might have overdone the guilt trip just a touch.

Anyway, sorry for the scattered post.  It’s late and I wanted to get this out before heading to bed.  Here are pics taken from the game tonight.  They were taken with my phone so I am sorry about the low quality.
