Morning With Chelley & Madelyn

This morning I put Zak in big boy underwear and planned to keep him in them all day except for during our trip to WalMart. He did well and peed on the potty twice and not in his underwear. Then I got a message from Chelley seeing if the boys and I wanted to hang out with her and Madelyn today. So we got dressed and headed into Annapolis to meet them at the mall. I decided to put a Pull Up on Zak and try to keep going with him using the potty while we were out. Soon after getting to the mall Zak announced he needed to go potty so we quickly found the closest one. He had started to go a little in his Pull Up, but finished going on the potty. Then we walked around a bit and let the kids run around in the play area. All 3 of them had a great time there. Madelyn liked to call "Zak" while there and follow him around some. She also liked to try and escape, but I turned it into a game so she pretty much stopped until right at the end when she made a run for it. Zak had fun climbing on everything and Ryder enjoyed himself as well.

After they played for a while we went to Payless and then to the food court for lunch. After that we made a stop at the bathroom and headed to the car. The boys were really good the whole time we were out so it was a nice trip. They both fell asleep in the car on the way home, but once we got home they were wide awake. The neighbors were outside playing so we sat out there and played for a while. The weather today is so nice!

I think tomorrow we are going to make a trip to see Rich & Laura for a little bit. Ben and I are doing a fantasy football league (we each have our own team against each other) and the draft for it is tomorrow evening. Not sure what our plans for Sunday are yet, but looks like it might rain. I am looking forward to next week because my mom and Piper will be here on Tuesday. Ben took off Thursday (the boys' birthday) and Friday so we are going to stay in a hotel with my mom & Piper Wednesday night until Sunday. That should be fun!
