I'm proud of myself to be leaving somewhat on time to an outing with
some moms I met in Alyssa's swimming class.UNTIL
My Garmin runs out of batteries 5 minutes after I've left home and I
can't plug it in because yesterday Alyssa dropped a penny in the
cigarette lighter and it sparks when I try to stick my finger in there
and get it out. So I call Luke and he gives me directions. As I'm
driving I run into construction stopping traffic for several minutes
which kinda works out because Evan's pacifier falls out of his mouth and
Alyssa is parrotting "crakka, crakka, crakka!" Stick the pacifier in his
mouth and find a few crackers to quiet the `starving' girl in the
backseat who just had lunch before we got in the car.
We're on the go again and I get behind a garbage truck. Great. So we get
to go 35mph instead of 45mph at which I would have probably decided to
go at least 50 if I could. Fine 8 miles at 35mph. Finally 2 lanes! I
pull around and onto the freeway to get stuck behind a dump truck with
rocks in it and yes you guessed it.a tiny rock pelts my window. COME ON!
I can't believe this. My only saving grace is the Christian radio
station I'm listening to and the car pool lane. Which - by the way is
awesome that you can get in or out whenever you want to.
Finally at the exit and I call Luke to verify directions. "Turn left
then left again and you should see the mall area." No mall area
anywhere. Uh, late and bad directions. I call him back to verify the
street. Yep I passed it and so if only this wasn't a road with no turns
for 5 miles! Uh. Okay back around to find the mall. Where the heck IN
the mall is the Children's Museum?! I drive around the entire mall and
there are no signs. I am skeptical that it's in there, but I just park
anywhere and I'll enter the mall at the main entrance. BUT as I'm
getting ready to get out of the car I realize Evan needs to be fed.
These are the times I wish he wasn't nursing. So we take another 20
minutes in the car and then head in. An hour or so later and WE'VE
FINALLY MADE IT.
And it was SO Worth it. The Children's Museum was so cool, Alyssa loved
it! Wish I had pictures to show you.next time.
Okay here's a few recent photos of us.not at the museum. :)
I don't normally brag, but gosh they're so cute. :)
