Hump Day Hi-jinks

Even though it is now the
weekend, I still want to share a great time I had this past week that was a great change to the normal hum drum routine. Right smack in the middle of the week I decide to invite my sister and niece out to eat at Chick Fila just to hang out and let the kids play for a bit. While pretty much everyone likes to save outings such as this for the weekends, it was nice to throw it in the middle of the week. Despite living in Clarksville now, I still only see my niece, Emma (left, in the green shirt), once a week at the most. I suppose it is better than once every six months like before. :p The girls love playing with their cousin and the three of them always act like they haven't seen each other in years! Crazy kids! After sucking down chicken tenders, chocolate milk, and Autumn smearing ketchup all over her (long-sleeved) shirt, the girls scurried to the play room. Emma and Hannah were climbing up to the highest level faster than Meagan and I could get in there. Even though Emma is a mere 15 days older than Autumn, she has the sturdiness and endurance of a 4-year old--climbing and running every which where as if she has been doing it since the beginning of time. Autumn on the other hand, while at perfect development for her age, is a bit more cautious simply watching her cousin and big sister while also making a good attempt at climbing up. My little ginger is a bit on the short side. :) All good things must come to an end and the girls did not want to leave, of course. I definitely enjoyed throwing this wrench into the works. I really hope to do it more often!
