that is a smile, by the way.
our biggest accomplishment today was assembling cupcake's toy kitchen she received from us for christmas. wow. i will be the first to admit i am not mechanically minded. i would rather describe in detail my thoughts and feelings in regards to the kitchen than build it. maxer was especially helpful in locating the correct letters corresponding to the instructions, and losing screws left and right. here is what i know: it is still standing, though leaning somewhat, and has already provided much appreciated distraction.
upon brads arrival home, we took the fam out for some authentic mexican at that little place by crazy horse. i felt extremely out of my element as the only individual who could not speak spanish beyond si. even though brad works daily with spanish speakers, he lost all ability to comprehend and relied on me and my enthusiastic nods and thank yous to order. i liked his meal better than mine, but we left full. the bad news- there were four tvs playing some sort of final destination movie all around the dining room. totally inappropriate. for the 30 minutes we were there, there were boobs, naked, and 4 violent deaths. brad and i were working real hard to keep the boys' attention elsewhere as they are magnetically drawn to tvs. it was comical how we would make up things we saw out the window, frantically do letter/color scavenger hunts and close our eyes in prayer at the worst parts of the show. stressful!regardless, the day was casual and beautiful and full of chillaxin enjoying the little things. love that kind of treasure at the end of the week!
