The Easy Way Out

I never did get chance to write about last week. So I am going to cheat and link to Jenny's description. Which is hilarious and so reason enough to go read it. But hilarious in a "whew, it didn't happen to me" kind of way. And I must say that we had an awesome time and I found her to be an amazingly capable and steady mother. You'd never know the fiascos she has to deal with if she didn't blog about them for all of us to read. And thank goodness that she does because then I know I'm not alone in those kind of moments. It was a stone cold miracle that Keegan didn't have a meltdown considering he was way past his nap too. But do check out the museum if you live in the area because it really is worth it especially to have a place just for kids under 6. And Jeff was his usual highly involved child-friendly self. We kid but he really does have such fun. And it is one of my favorite qualities about him.
