When we got to Albany, Dorothy & Gwendolyn (who is 2 1/2) picked us up we got started on the 90 minute drive to her house. It was about 6:30 and I hadn't eaten since a very early lunch, so we decided to stop for dinner at a Friendly's off the interstate. For those of you who don't know, Friendly's is usually a nice little sit-down restaurant (probably like a Denny's). Well, apparently we stopped at a Friendly's CAFE, which is part of the same chain, but is really a hole-in-the wall fried chicken joint in a gas station. Appetizing, I know. However, Connor was crying so we made the best of it and got back on the road.

DADDY'S GONNA EAT YOUR FINGERS
I was packing for my business trip and my three year old daughter was having a wonderful time playing on the bed. At one point she said, 'Daddy, look at this' , and stuck out two of her fingers.
Trying to keep her entertained, I reached out and stuck her tiny fingers in my mouth and said, 'Daddy's gonna eat your fingers,'pretending to eat them.
I went back to packing, looked up again and my daughter was standing on the bed staring at her fingers with a devastated look on her face.
I said,'What's wrong, honey?'
She replied, 'What happened to my booger?'

And then, to be fair, we took a picture of Olivia, too. It's very unflattering (sorry Olivia!) but it shows how she sleeps with her mouth open and that giant stuffed animal she's so attached to. It's like a leopard or something, but she calls it "Big Kitty". Thanks a lot, Grandma Crews. Now we can't get her to go anywhere without it!

Connor definitely takes after the Ervin side of the family in some things. This week in our co-op we got a few lemons, and the girls love to slice them up and eat them. So of course, like any good mommy, I gave a slice to the baby so we could all laugh at his funny faces. The trick, however, was getting it away from him. The lemon wedge he has in this video is actually his second. He cried like his heart was broken when I threw away the first one that I just had to give him another...
