No cookies for me

Yesterday Broderick and I took a little trip to the grocery store, before going to get the pizza for movie night. Some of you are aware that I have been trying to watch what I have been eating. I have been doing pretty good. Every now and then there is a day that turns out to be a disaster. Take last Friday for example...I went to my aunt's with my mom and had lunch with all my aunts and mom. One of my aunts brought all this yumminess from the best grocery store bakery in town. I went down! Then Rob and I got fast food for dinner, which let me just say, it didn't even sound good. Since I can't say no to food I ate it anyway. Then Saturday my friend Carrie took me out for a day of fun. I will just say pedicures were involved! We also went out to lunch, you guessed it, I went down again. By Saturday night I felt like I was going to vomit. I am not exaggerating. I really thought I was going to be sick. So anyway, back to the grocery...of course when I was leaving, the cute little girl scouts were there selling their cookies. It took everything inside of me to keep walking right by them. I did it though! Be proud of me please!!! This is huge for me. I love girl scout cookies. Even writing about them makes my stomach growl.

Rob and I took Broderick out for a special day a few days ago. He got a monster truck game for his Nintendo DS at Christmas and since then he has been into them. So Rob, being the creative dad that he is, thought it would be fun to take him to a show. We hardly ever tell the kids where we are are going if it is a place for them. It is always a "surprise." So Broderick had no idea that we were going. When we got there and he saw the monster trucks he lost it! The coolest part was, that before the show started we could walk down on the dirt and see the trucks and meet the drivers. Of course Broderick thought that was so cool!!! The show was really fun and I think this was the best surprise to date.

The famous Big Foot. Which I thought would be Broderick favorite. He like the Transaurus the best. That is this big dino machine that comes out and eats a car. (We couldn't take our good camera in, so we didn't get any good pictures of that.)
Us posing with the trucks and drivers.
We had a great time out with just Broderick. Things were very quite, until we got to the show of course. Carys had a special night with Grandma and Grandpa. She really enjoyed it. They took her to see a movie, painted nails, had a tea party, played babies and all sorts of other "girly" things. Rob and I are already planning a special night out for her. Broderick is already talking about his special night with Grandma and Grandpa or Kyler!!!

Weekend Fun

So we made the BIG change yesterday...Carys is now in a big bed. Actually it is a toddler bed, but it is not a crib anymore. You may be asking yourself if it was hard for me to take down the crib. My reply would be yes. I didn't cry, but I could have. I wasn't sad that we aren't going to have anymore kids, I am really okay with that decision. However, it made me sad that my little Carys is not a baby anymore. She loves her new bed and said, "Daddy, I love my new bed," about 50 times before her nap yesterday. She did great and has not gotten out once. We will see what the days to come bring.
We also took the kids to this great train museum this weekend. Rob had taken Broderick a couple weeks back. Broderick really wanted to take Carys and I. We all loved it! The best part was watching Broderick be so sweet to Carys. They had a play area and Broderick would help Carys climb up and look out for her around the other kids. It was so awesome to see how much he cares and loves her.
