Another blurry picture to continue with the week of crappy pictures theme....
Let me preface this by saying that we nearly never take our kids out to restaurants. As I stated in the previous money post, there really are no funds for that right now. Even when we do have money we don't do it very often because they really aren't the sit still, be quiet and have good manners sort of kiddos. Oh, they are well behaved enough but it feels stressful to take them out to eat so early on Peter and I decided that was an easy thing to give up on. Plus, they don't really eat food. I mean really, there are about 5 things that they each will eat.
This morning though, I took them both to the dentist (no cavities!) and then we went to Bob's Red Mill to buy some flour. If you live in the Portland area you should really check it out they have a great little restaurant and their flour selection is incredible. The kids were hungry by the time we got there so I broke my no-restaurants rule and ordered them each a kid's breakfast and a smoothie to split and people, you would have thought I hung the moon just for them. They were ecstatic. It was all so exciting! Waiting for our food, buttering the pancakes themselves, the choice of jam OR syrup, everything about it. And they were polite and well-manned the whole time. So I guess breaking a rule every so often is actually a good thing.
