Sunday night Chris, I and the girls were supposed to be meeting Chris' brother and his Girlfriend for dinner. They decided they couldn't go so we spent the evening together as just a four person family. Never happens! At first I think we were bummed but ended up having a great time. First off we took the girls to the nearby lake. It was about time for them to eat but we decided to get a few pictures first. We have thousands (seriously) pictures of them but not alot with us. Kinley was asleep for most of the picture taking. Lately when Kinley is finally asleep you do just about everything to keep her that way.

They would much rather watch boats than take pictures
I love this picture!
This was the last attempt. I think all three of them had enough.

After we went to the Lake we went out to eat. I figured since the girls had eaten their last bottle at the lake, they would go to sleep. Boy, was I wrong!!!! The whole plan backfired...mostly on Kinley's behalf. I swear the last week or so she has to scream for at least 20 minutes before falling asleep. At home that's not that bad, but at a restaurant it's not so good. I finally left Chris and Madelyn to pay the check so Kinley and I could walk out. I get self conscious of letting them cry in public places. We get to the front of the restaurant and all the hostess want to see her. She of course turns the charm on. For those of you that have met her, you know what I am talking about. As soon as you talk to her she shoots you a HUGE smile seconds after screaming her head off. After a few minutes of being in the car they both fell fast asleep.
Despite the rocky dinner we had a great time as a family!
