what a day!

The only "normal" part of our day today was spending a couple of hours with some sweet friends! Madelyn loved playing with Logan and I enjoyed talking to Mariann and holding Jackson (of course!).
The big kids even tried out a couple of Jackson's bouncy seats. Considering how calm they looked in them, I may just have to pull Madelyn's back out!
These two boys are absolutely precious! It has been so fun watching Logan grow alongside MK and I know it will be just as fun to watch his baby brother!
The other events of the day consisted of:
  • MK waking up at 11:30pm, 2am, 2:30am, 3am, 3:30am, 4am and 4:30am for good. Teething??
  • Breaking one of my dishes (I've never done this before).
  • I picked up diet cokes for Mariann and I at a gas station but must have driven off with them on top of the car still. Boo!
  • My phone not working for about 6 hours during the time I was supposed to meet a friend that I only had the number for stored in my phone and deliver CDs from two photo shoots.
  • Waiting from 2:45pm-3:35pm in the pick-up line to get my niece. I was only the 15-20th car back and it took over half an our to get to the front! Yikes!
  • Right when it was my turn to get her a huge storm blew in and the wind was so strong against the door they couldn't get it open.
  • I was taking her to dance, so we immediately headed that way. MK was with us so I anticipated having to keep her calm for the hour we were there, but I didn't anticipate wet paint on the walls! Oh dear. After watching her sweet cousin dance for about half an hour on my hip (I was shocked but she was mesmerized!!), she got restless so we decided to head to the car. And then there was rain. Lots and lots of {much needed} rain. As we were walking to the car someone wheeled in and splashed us with lots of water. MK was soaked and crying. Thankfully we had a change of clothes in the car!
  • On the way home I got pulled over for going too slow.
And the one that put it all in to perspective:
  • Luke picks up a lot of the students directly from school on Wednesday in the church van and brings them to the church to hang out before the service. After church he takes one van full and another couple takes a van full of kids home. The other van was just about finished with drop offs when they were hit by a woman who ran a stop sign. She hit them so hard that she knocked them in to a ditch, flipped it on it's side and then the van bounced back up. Two of the passengers were taken to the hospital via ambulance. Thankfully, everyone is OK besides obvious soreness and bruises I am sure!
What a weird/not-so-great day! Minus the van accident, the rest of it was so typical of a bad day that I couldn't help but laugh. I am so glad it's over! Bring it on, Thursday!
