After the nap that never was, Katie played by herself until Ethan woke up and then we played with puzzles until it was time to meet our friends "The P's" at Cracker Barrel. I was a little concerned that Katie would fall asleep on the 20 minute ride there but no siree, she was still going strong when we arrived.
We all sat down, ate and generally had a fine time with each other until Katie and Mia got a little rambunctious. We decided to bring them outside and sit by the rocking chairs. I pulled out some candy that I brought for them and they just had a ball; eating their candy, running from chair to chair, playing silly games with each other and giving everybody that walked by a fun show.
Making funny faces
another country heard from
Outside with their suckers
Getting a little messy
At the end of the evening, a baby boy that was just beginning to walk came by with his parents and the girls just went crazy over him. They had to watch every move he made and Katie kept saying...HELLO LITTLE PAPI!! I use that term of endearment with Ethan now and then as I did with Justin. It is a holdover from my first marriage. My ex husband was South American. Now that I think about it; it is quite funny that me; an Italian Jew is using a Spanish term of endearment with my Chinese son. I guess we are quite the melting pot around this house! So anyway, Katie and Mia stalked little Papi until it was time to go and head home. Here are the girls and their new friend
Katie made it home, still in great shape and is now singing in her bed and it is 9:45PM. Does this mean that she may sleep in a bit later tomorrow morning? Knowing my little bundle of energy, somehow I doubt it...but a girl can always hope!
