Weekend of Wheels

What a weekend! I feel like we were hardly home. Most of Friday was spent driving the older three babies to their father. Sunday was spent driving to get the babies from their father, which involved hanging out at North Bend for an hour while Snoqualmie was closed for avalanche control. I am very glad we did not have to deal with an avalanche like they did on Monday.

We weren't home at all Saturday, either. It was a much more fun day, though. The three of us packed up and left the house by 11am for cousin Madison's birthday party.

Miss Potato was happy to go see her cousins, and other relatives. I made Madison a no sew tutu in yellow and pink. It was huge and froufy! Of course, I forgot to take pictures. Dottie's 10(?) year old daughter sewed a really cute blanket for Madison, and everybody now wants her to make them one.
After pizza, tradition continued with moving on to Tiffany's Skate Inn to continue the party. We brought Potato's tutu with us for her to wear.

It would appear that in the past year Potato has learned the fear of falling and pain, because she did not want to let go of our hands. Last year, I was the one getting plenty of help with helping kids skate. This year, Jeremy and I were able to offer help since we only had Potato with us. Potato totally rocked the tutu and roller skates.

Tomorrow, March 2nd, is Dr. Seuss's birthday.

Check your local library to see if they are doing something special to celebrate. If you would like some ideas on how to celebrate with your kids at home, ObSuessed is a good place to start. If your library is not doing something special, perhaps today you could go check out several Dr. Seuss books to read with your child. I for one will be starting my kids' day off with green eggs and ham. Maybe, after school, we will read some of the books and watch a movie or two. My favorite Dr. Seuss is Horton Hears a Who.

Thank you for telling me what those bugs are! I have been wondering for years! We used to have them in our old car...
