on monday alecia hosted our kids day out. matt was working late, so he went in late and was able to drop the girls off for me. laney and i ellipticaled it and then got all dolled up and met up with janette, lisa, jodi, and chrissy at ledo's. i got a spinach apple salad that was delicous and half the price of olive garden. thinking of switching my italian dining prefernce.
i picked the kiddos up, dropped addie off at school (insert mommy guilt for dropping her off at one place and immediately picking her up and dropping her off somewhere else), and headed to sarah's to work on christian's birthday slideshow. nothing like waiting till the last minute! and definitely nothing like good friends that pick up your slack when you wait till the last minute!
left sarah's, picked up addie, swung by the house to pick up christian, and off to sports clips for a pre-birthday haircut and massage. that place is fan-cy! we stopped at dollar tree for some birthday balloons, on to target for some couponing, and then finally met up with lexi at red robin - she had been driving with her instructor and now she's all ready to take her mva test on friday. yikes!!!
chris deviated from the traditional japanese steakhouse birthday dinner for some never ending fries and rootbeer floats. our wallets thanked him.
our server was all over it. no surprise, franks finished her juice sup-ah fast, and he quick style brought her another one. so i got a pic of her celebrating with her bottomless juice too. that would be her best birthday dinner, non-stop juice bar. just keep 'em coming!
and silly addie climbed into the high chair.
and silly lexi texts. like a lot.
poor matt has worked late every night this week. our wallets thank him.
no birthday dinner is complete without a song. :)
despite some tired kids and flying solo, it was a really nice dinner and we had a great time. i got a salad - so that's 2 times eating out and 2 times making good choices, go me! addie was funny, after christian had a few bites of his birthday sundae he was done, and no one else wanted any either. so addie had to go to the bathroom and when she got back she ate the rest of the sundae. way to make room, addie! daddy and papa, and really, who am i kidding, momma, are proud. :)
