This is a little “morning in the life of” post, instead of day in the life of, as all the excitement happened in the morning. It’s now 2pm and we’re all settled in for the day, far away from the extremely hot outside, and errands, back to playing, and relaxing.
So we started the day off taking my in-laws to the Maple Biscuit Company for breakfast for my mother-in-laws birthday. It was new to us, and a fun little joint. It was a nice visit and great food. Can’t beat that.
My oldest sons phone died on him, so we took him to the phone store, and swapped it out for another older iPhone of ours. Luckily we had another one to use. While Adam and Nick did that, Zane, Dash, and I went to the pet store nearby. But not before a picture in front of the massive Aloe plant!
The boys love going to the pet store and looking at all the pets available for purchase and adoption. They especially were taken by all the sweet guinea pigs. Adam doesn’t want anymore pets or I would have for sure bought one or two for them. We’ve not had a pig in over a year now and we miss them. All of us except daddy. Party pooper. ha!
I love their heart for animals. They’re such gentle, loving boys – especially when it comes to the animal kingdom. Boys after my own heart. I’ve always been an animal lover. Glad I passed that along to them.
After the pet store and the phone store we made our way back up near our neighborhood for haircuts, the chiropractor, and groceries. All the boys, including Adam, got haircuts. It took a good hour to get everyone done. Adam got his back popped but I ended up passing this time as the chiropractor only had machines this time as her hand was hurt and she couldn’t manually manipulate your back and neck. I hate machines, so even though I needed it, I decided I’d get it another day.
By the time we got to the store we were pretty spent, plus, the 100 degree heat had zapped the energy out of us but we still managed to be nice to one another, be patient, and get through the store fast.
It was quite the productive morning. And pretty enjoyable, too, which is always a plus. ha!
And just look at my beautiful family! I don’t know how I was lucky enough to have such a wonderful family of men, but I’m so grateful for them.
