Adventure #3

This week has been crazy! I've been running around applying for jobs and actually running like 2-3 miles a day! Hanging out with my mom, shopping and baking!

Friday was one of those days. A great one. But insane.

I woke up at 7:30 am and drove over to Shawna's. She needed help running errands and driving her cars to the shop! So being lucky me, I drove her new hot SAAB convertible. Top down and hair blowing! It felt awesome. The best part is she told me I could borrow it anytime!

Then 9:30 am. Babysitting time. I went over to the Graham's and babysat for them and the Nelsons. So a total of 7 children. Two 8 year olds. Two 6 year olds. A 4 year old. A 2 year old and a baby! We had a lot of fun! We played outside and I learned the game "mr. fox" which is basically kinda like mother may i. Then the children got into the candy. It was insane. There were jelly bellies and these very realistic gummy worms. They made me want to puke. They were brown and jiggly and just like real worms.

Then the Nelson kids left and I had the remaining 5 hours with the Graham's. We had a picnic in the living room eating mac & cheese while watching the jungle book. We cleaned the guinea pig cage. And we played outside. I've been babysitting these kids for 4 years now and they have never been as silly as Friday. They enjoyed jumping on top of me and saying "get the monster!" So I retaliated by tickling them. We spent literally an hour chasing each other around and tickling.

Then we decided to try to get the energy out by going on a walk. We never made it past the speed bump down the street because one child would say "I need to go potty!" or "I want to ride my bike instead of my scooter!" "My skates hurt my feet!" "I need a drink of water!" We went down the same stretch of road 4 times and turned around and came back and turned around. The most memorable time was when Ty said I gotta go potty! So he ran up the hill and then at the top of their yard pulled down his pants and peed on the tree. And of course at this exact time 6 cars drove by! Everyone was laughing. Including me. Although I was extremely embarrassed. But how can you be angry at those cute kids! I seriously love them!

Then after a long day of fun at the Graham's I ran home and hurried and changed for a night on the town with Chris! We went to Mackenzie River Pizza Co. (YUMM!) and then went to the Magic City Singers Concert at Alberta Bair. They were definitely a treat. They reminded me of the GLEE Club for 50 and 60 year olds from MT. They sang some show tunes and had sparkly gold tops and they even danced! It was adorable! There was a really old guy, he was probably 80, who would get so in to it! Then we went back to his house and roasted marshmallows for seis de mayo with some of his friends. All in all the day was a blast. I love those kids and I love pizza and marshmallows. So now it's on to more adventures!
