Hangin' Out

Ahhh...Roger has two extra days off from work this week, and unlike me, who would be perfectly content working on projects at home, he loves to go out. Well, I can't really say that today he had to twist my arm too hard. First stop, getting both of my windows fixed. That's right folks - the driver side actually goes down, and the passenger side has come out from hiding and goes up! Always helpful when it's raining, although having it broken has eliminated the "who gets to sit in the front seat" arguments. After that was breakfast at the Corner Bakery. Just the two of us, since Haydo was at preschool. Then we goofed off at Barnes & Noble for awhile. A store I never venture into with children (it's way too tempting with it's labyrinth aisles), but with just us adults...heaven. Pick up the boy, and off to the Galleria Mall to the first time. That place is freakin' huge! With a ton of stores and even more boutiques that I dared not even venture into: Saks, Tiffany & Co, Louis Vitton, blah blah blah. No wonder it makes more money per square foot than any other mall in America. Oops sorry, not mall, an "urban shopping experience." Hayden thought it would be funny to "hide" from Mom & Dad behind the counter at the Rolex store. The old man working there didn't seem to find any humor in the situation. Whatever, just give me my Wallflower refills for $6 before the sale is over and I'm a happy girl. Checking out the skating rink inside on the first of four levels. Roger threatening to throw him over if he doesn't start behaving (yes, that is real terror on Hayden's face. Love it.) Goofin' in the play area Stopping for a batman happy meal. "You can't have my milkshake Dad. You'll just drink all of it, I know!" We got home and I got to head out and pick Sierra up from school and take her to the doctor. Hooray! The strep test was negative. Wish we could say the same for the past 7 in the last two years. Fingers crossed; maybe Texas has less germs than Utah. Then when I got home, I noticed that Brendan had gotten back from school with some scratches on his face. Obviously, the other kid must have gotten the worst of it...

  1. HA! Remember Mr. Mata's "I will say yes". Is this really going to work for Brenden? :)

  2. That mall looks crazy! I love Brenden's punishment. I can't believe that I have never done that to my kids before.
