Trade day

This was actuallylast Sunday but with Hannah being sick I forgot to mention it. Laura and I took the girls to trade day at Tannehill state park Sunday. It was a beautiful day and I wanted to get them out into some fresh air. For any of you who do not know what Trade day is, think of a bif flea market type thing, with slightly nicer stuff to buy. It was a beautiful day, and so after their 8am feeding and we got ready, Laura and I packed the girls into the van. Jason, who I mentioned earlier, went with us also. After he climbed into the van through the back hatch, over the double stroller, off we went. By the time we got there we found a table and had to give the girls a bottle since it was noon. I went to find a bathroom and left Jason and Laura with the feeding, amongst the many onlookers oogling two babies. I returned to them laughing because apparently they claimed them momentarily. Jason has heard so much about them he could answer all questions from strangers: "How old are they, are they identical, etc." I guess it was easier to claim them then to say , I am actually dating the moms sister...

Anyway after they were fed and changed I put Hannah in the back of the stroller and Leah sat up front in her little sun bonnet just watching the world. Hannah wanted a nap and let the entire place know about it. After a little bit of screaming she fell asleep in her little rolling recliner and we all had a peaceful day. I bought some sheets and a carpet, which Jason so kindly lugged up to the car. It was a nice day to be outside and I think my girls enjoyed it as well.

We came back and fed them again, and then went with Matt to Stix. He loves him some Japanese food. They were very good there too. Hannah had to be held as I was finishing eating, but they had both been such troopers all day I did not mind.

Overall it was a successful outing and a good way to enjoy this warmer spring weather!
