Tow Trucks and Tuna Steaks and Tents, OH MY!!

We're loving this cooler weather. It's so nice because I can lock send the kids outside to play and know they won't have a heat stroke. I can also set Lillian outside in her bouncer and she can enjoy the fresh air as well! So we're having a nice afternoon playing outside, waiting for daddy to drive up and all the sudden (really fast too) a tow truck is backing down the driveway!!! He didn't waste anytime. I sprint down to make sure the kids and their toys are out of the way. Olivia runs off, knowing she doesn't want to get hit by the truck. But Landon - he thought he'd won the lottery!! The kid stood in awe of this HUGE truck taking his daddies car away! Landon kept jibber jabbering away and the nice tow man just nodded and smiled!

Hopefully Robert's truck will be back Wednesday. I'm not sure what we are going to do until then. I know people can make it with one car, but how am I going to nurse a baby, feed the other kids, get them dressed, get Olivia off to school BY 8:30(!!), and drive and hour there and back through rush hour traffic?? Hmmmmm.........and that's if everything goes smoothly! Well, I won't think about that today, I'll think about that tomorrow! (ode to Scarlet) :-)

When Robert got home, we didn't want to go out to dinner but we did decide to go to the Piggly Wiggly! Nothing better on a Friday night and walkin' around The Pig!! Actually, they have free wine tasting from 5:00 to 7:00. HA! We also have been dying to cook some fish recently and went out on a limb and got Tuna Steaks. We also made a citrus and black bean salsa to go on top. It was red onion, black beans, an orange, cilantro, fresh jalapenos, and lime juice! SPICY!!! It was AWESOME!! Tuna steaks are not that expensive ($3.00 a piece for us) and cook in under 4 minutes!! WOW. What a healthy, delicious, and fun way to spend our evening. Of course we topped it off with chocolate chip cheese cake!! YUMMMMMM

You may be asking, where are the kids in this??? Well, they've been playing really nice lately! Oh I hope I don't jinx it now! ;-) And they've been obsessed with this flashlight and going in their closets and night to shine it. But tonight, the made a tent in the den!

It's really nice when your kids play together sweet. They were purposely taking turns with the flashlight and sharing all they were doing with each other!

I hope this weekend continues as fun as it's started so far! Actually, Robert will probably put me to work painting the house! But hey, at least the turquoise trim is slowly disappearing!
