Husband out of town

This week my husband was out of town so I spent the night at my parents one night and spent 2 days with my family. We went to the mall one day with Katrina and my mom to let the kids play at the play place and ride on the merry go round. Here is Katrina and I with our little babes in their bjorns.
Reid on the merry go round. He had to have the dragon.
Clara on the horse.
We also took the kids to the Mayan Restaurant to eat and watch the divers. They loved it. Clara was a little unsure about the whole thing, because it was dark inside. It reminds me of a disneyland ride inside, so i asked Reid if it reminded him of disneyland and his response was "No, there aren't any rides." Here they are outside the restaurant playing while i nursed Alvin.

This is Reid after we watched the divers, pretending he is a diver. He was pretty intrigued by those divers.

We had a fun time at my parents. My kids' favorite thing to do is just play outside at my parents, they never want to go anywhere else. today Reid spent most the day outside picking weeds in my parents' yard. He loved seeing the root and how big of a root he could get. Everytime he kept showing us how much bigger each one was. Pack came over and Reid kept bringing the roots to him to show him how big they were, finally Pack responded "Okay but, they're not really that cool." He says it like it is old "Packie" My kids call him "a nut case."
Although, Clara did say today, "Packie use to be a nut case, but now he's not." Pack is my younger brother. My Kids have kind of a love/hate relationship with him. They love him because he is crazy and funny, but they always end up crying in the end because he has either hurt them or scared them. He treats them like they are his same age, or should I say he acts like he is their same age :). Okay, back to the roots. As Reid was picking the roots, he kept saying, "I love picking roots, I love picking roots, I'M A ROOT PICKER!" Then after we weren't interested anymore in the big roots he kept picking he then found some kids outside to show them the big roots he had picked, but they really weren't interested in them, so he came inside to find something they were interested in. so one by one he kept bringing out different toys/books, to show these kids that were outside. He loves to entertain anyone who will pay attention to him. It was funny to see what he would bring out next. one of the things he came out with were some princess high heels of Clara's. He walked outside in these fussy heels like a little princess. He was loving every minute of it. Especially the laughs he got. He is such a funny kid. I don't know if you can see this very well, but Reid gets the worst prune feet and hands when he takes a bath. He always puts them on me to gross me out. They are seriously so gross looking. I have never seen such pruneness(I don't know what else to call it)
Again I don't know if you can tell, but clara's hands are way less pruney than reid's. I wonder why? i wish you could see it better, because it is so weird looking.
Here is a picture of Chloe and Alvin at 6 weeks, sorry Chloe that i didn't get such a good picture of you, but Alvin looked so cute, and the rest of the pictures I got of them he was crying.
My mom loves to go to garage sales and here is a little something she found at one last week. She is always finding things my kids love better than the toys I buy brand new and at full price.
Cute little Alvin at almost 7 weeks old. He is smiling a lot for us and making little baby talks now. He is so sweet.

Funny about Packie saying the roots really aren't that cool. I can imagine Nathan saying that to Sam.
I wish I could have Reid entertain Sam. He seems fun.
