Sunday, Sunday, Sunday

It's been a week since I posted anything so I thought I better put something up before I start to seriously slack! We've had a pretty good week around here. It's getting closer to Pat and I going back to work so we've been trying to cram as many little outings as we can into our days. We've gone shopping a few times, taken some good long walks, visited with some of Pat's family, and hung out at home. On Friday we all went to see my former golf team at Sycamore Hills. They had their first match and we wanted to wish them luck. All of the girls really loved seeing the babies and I was happy to be there to see the progress that they are making with their new coach. I still miss it sometimes but there was no way I could still have coached with 3 babies. After that we went to Aunt Becca's to have some bottles and went with her, John, and the boys to the Armada Fair. Drew is walking now so it was fun to see him interact with the babies. He couldn't get enough of staring at Seamus and trying to touch him. We're a spectacle everywhere we go and Clay thought it was his job to yell at people who came up to us to see the babies. He kept telling them "Don't Touch!" It was really funny!
Yesterday Pat and I went out for the first time by ourselves. My mom, Stephen, and Melanie came over to babysit. My dad was supposed to be there but he somehow got into some poison ivy, again! I swear that stuff is like a magnet to him. We went to Christina and Jeff McEvoy's wedding. We ended up having a really good time and only called home once. For a while there though I wasn't sure we were going to make it. I think between the two of us we must have checked what time it was about a million times. It's amazing what a little food and alcohol will do though. By the end of the night we were out dancing and almost felt like normal people again. Today we are all going to a soccer game if the weather cooperates. Pat and I are both playing on an outdoor league. None of us are very good but we have a good time. The picture I've attached is of the babies trying to act like big kids. From L to R is Helena, Katie, and Seamus. They're all hanging out in my lazy boy (chair stealers!). Seamus was very intent on staring at his fingers and couldn't be bothered to look at the camera!
