Sunday Scott had work to do so I packed the kids up and took them to mom and dads for the day. We had a pretty lazy, rainy day out there.
Yesterday we were planning on going for a States run to pick up the mail and maybe go to Super Walmart but then we decided to go to Minot instead. It started out a little rocky with the kids in the van, I thought we weren't going to make it there, but we did. We had a lovely (??) lunch at McDonald's where the kids thoroughly enjoyed their happy meals. Then we hit the mall for 3 hours to just hang out. After a treat of Cold Stone ice cream, yum, we packed up and headed home. It was a pretty full day but we had fun. Everybody got a few little treats and the one guilty pleasure I returned home with was Chelsea Handler's new book, Lie That Chelsea Handler Told Me. We have been watching her show Chelsea Lately on E! lately and I've become a little obsessed.
We're still having issues with Nixon taking the bottle. Friday I finally got him to eat about 2 1/2 ounces and I was over the moon. Naturally I celebrated with a large glass of wine ; -) He usually just screams and sometimes gnaws on the nipple, and we have dumped 2 ounces in him before, but this was the first time he actually latched on and sucked it down. I had to bounce around the kitchen with him but still a small victory. Of course he hasn't done it since. Boo.
Next Sunday is our 5 km run. I have a feeling it isn't going to be pretty. Try as I may it has been difficult to find time to train. I'm still going to my class but finding time to go for a run has been extremely hard. Oh well, I'm going to squeeze in a few runs this week and pray for the best!!
Now, on to the pictures!
