After being couped up after all four of us were sick, we finally decided we just needed to get out. A change of scenery for all of us was needed. So when Brian got home from work tonight that's exactly what we did. We packed the girl's up and headed out for dinner.
The two of them were so good. They didn't fuss once at the restaurant. The best part about dinner tonight for me was that not one piece of food hit the floor. They ate almost everything! To say that they were well behaved would be an understatement. To say that they were perfect angel's would be correct. They were so good that we thought since their not fussing why not take them over to the mall since it was just across the street from where we were.

When we got into the mall they were pretty content sitting back in their stroller and relaxing. After about 10minutes of this they were ready to come out and do some exploring.
We walked around the mall for nearly two hours with them. I think I had more fun than they did. I just love to stand back and watch them take it all in.
One store we went in, there was a little girl who was the same size as the girl's were, only a year older. Avery was her typical shy self, while Olivia on the other was "little miss sociable". She walked right up to the little girl almost nose to nose and said "HI" I thought I was going to die from laughter. She amazes me all the time. She is so sweet that at times it can break your heart. My mother describes her as someone who loves life. Oh so true. She has the type of personality that people are drawn to.
So after buying the girl's some sandals for the summer, and the cutest pair of sunglasses ever, we headed home had some milk and off to bed. Not a peep out of them.

WOW GIRLS!!!!!! A big night out for dinner with Mommy and Daddy. Boy oh Boy!!!!! You all derserved that much needed night out. I am so glad that Mommy had a good time just watching you. You both looked so cute coloring at dinner. Your hair is so beautiful and getting very long I might add. I think it is a very good thing that you both have been practicing your coloring skills at home with Mommy and Daddy. This might mean that you get to go out more for dinner because you are such good girls at occupying yourselves now. This is very hard to even think that you will be 2 years old already in just 2 more months and 2 days. As always, can't wait to see you both. Love Grandma, Grandpa and Abbey.
