And if you only KNEW what I went through to get this picture.....finally, I told them they could "spank me" and I got this. Yeah, it was totally worth it!
SO last Friday I decided to take the kids to the Alexandria zoo with my mom in tow. Let me preface this by saying that the vehicle I drive is pretty old(over 10 years...) but it's been paid for and I'm happy with it. The gas gauge, however, has been acting up lately and when I thought I still had 3/4's of a tank left...I was wrong:(. Perhaps I should have remembered that it was on empty, but I live 3 miles from where I work and just don't have to fill up that often. So about an hour into our 2 hour trip, we ran out of gas on the side of the road. BUMMER. 2 hours later roadside assistance gets there and gases us up. By this time my mom needed to get back to Ruston. This went over like a lead balloon, but after promises of a pet fish, we were good to go. We'll make another trip after swim lessons are over.
Mom even found some sidewalk chalk in my car and got game of hopscotch going. We were very careful with them on the road. At this point, containing them in the car was no longer an option.
The whole crew eating some crawfish.
Tomorrow we are getting geared up for Landry Grace's dance recital. She has her first practice in Monroe on the "big stage" and is pretty excited about it. I am finding that she talks more and more about the recital everyday. Her performance is Saturday. This should be fun!!
