Friday Stink-a-Roo

Friday was a fun-filled day for us. We started out with a play date with some friends! Reid, Lilly, Cruz & Trevor, Trenton, & Stella. First, I should mention that as I was trying to walk out the door...I noticed my keys were missing from where I laid them down at. After frantically searching the house for 15 minutes, asking Matt "where in the world did he move my keys to??!", and being seconds away from what I call the ugly cry because I didn't want to miss the play date we had been trying for over a month to set up....I finally found them. Whew.
I am hoping one of the other girls got a better picture that I can steal later because these were the two that I ended up with. Despite the look on Lilly's face...she really did have fun playing with the other kiddos. I LOVE how every other child is looking at her like "what is wrong with you?" except Trenton who I believe is actually asking, "what is wrong with her??" Haha. I think a great time was had by kids and mommies alike.
After our playgroup, we met Daddy at Chick-Fil-A for lunch. Isn't this the sweetest picture?? I also want to note that Chick-Fil-A is the most kid friendly restaurant of them all-LOVE IT.
This is where the stink-a-roo part of the day begins. So, up until today if we left the toilet seat down...Lilly didn't mess with the toilet. Well, I was feeding Reid and Lilly was running around "uncleaning" and playing when all of the sudden I heard splashing first thought was Tank's water bowl but then as I listened I figured out it was coming from a different area. So I sit Reid down and sure enough...this is what she is doing--putting her bath toys in the toilet. Guess who gets to sanitize those?? This girl. Yippee.
Well, Lilly decided she wanted the whole box of Goldfish for a snack. I thought...not worth the fight--go for it!
She was really enjoying them.
Until in a blink of an eye---whamm-O---all on the ground. Goldfish on the ground, Goldfish on the ground..haha. You can see where Matt was leaping forward to stop her. Too. Late.
Tank was willing to be a good Samaritan and clean them up.
She was willing to help him.
They have become such good buddies now that she eats "people" food. So, we picked some up and put them back in the box to throw away so that Tank didn't give himself a stomach ache.
Then, it happened. De-ja-vu (I know I am butchering the spelling)--she snuck the box and dumped them back in the floor AGAIN. Are you getting the stink-a-roo part of the title yet???
This time I made her pick them up....again, Tank was willing and eager to help.
Never a dull moment! Shockingly enough, that wasn't the end of our night but the rest will have to wait for another post. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

The kids all look so cute! It is so hard to take pictures of a bunch of children and keep them still. I love the lunch date with daddy. So sweet!
