Two WHOLE days!!!!.........

My kids were angels.  Well.....except for the occasional "butt" comments from Kohl.  We left on Friday morning for Knight's checkup in Denver.  First we had to stop in OG at the chiro so I could get adjusted.  Before we went in I gave the kids the what for in the car about sitting there quietly while I got worked on.  I mean let's face it.  If you know the little red head you all know that when he gets around anyone besides Wade and I he completely loses it.  He shows off.  And that's usually in the form of saying things that he probably shouldn't.  And completely embarassing me.  :)  He was great though which made me wonder what the hell he was trying to get me to do for him. 

Next stop.  Denver.  Again, we went to Knight's hour long appt. and neither of them whined or complained that we weren't done yet.  Knight let them take his blood like a trooper and we were on our way.  I was doing a happy dance because his seizures are under control now and he doesn't have to go back for 6 months.  The kids were excited because we could now head to Grandma's in Fort Collins. 

We went swimming at the rec center, visited a train museum and went to a Barnes & Noble without any major meltdowns.  I always say a little prayer before going in a large store.  It usually includes the following, "Lord please let me get through this shopping experience without the store throwing us out or calling the cops for a major disturbance."  :)  But again, NOTHING.  Well, unless you count Kohl getting super sad when we left cause he thought Grandma had bought him a Spongebob book and we both thought he didn't want the Spongebob book.  Needless to say, Grandma went back in and got the book and everything was great again. 

I went shopping at the outlets and discovered I have a major problem.  All I want to buy is running gear.  It's sad really.  My wardrobe right now consists of shorts, dri fit anything, and running shoes.  Running shoes that I have 5 pair of right now but have 2 favorites so should really sell those "extra" 3 pair.  But I got some really great deals at Nike and Under Armour that I should have couldn't pass up!!

Decided to leave early Sunday morning to head home because we all know how kids are after you've been gone for a weekend and then they have to go back to school on Monday.  GROUCHY!!  It only took about 2 hours of traveling for the MONSTERS to return to my life.  I got a good 2 days out of them though so that's a good start!!  We had a great little getaway and now I could use a getaway with myself.  :)  Or maybe a drink.
