the weekend in pictures

One dad + 3 kids + two birthdays = a whole lotta cute. We spent the boys' birthday party day at the movies with 6 of their closest friends


Some call it brave; I call it crazy. 8 boys smell. Bad.

This one's not mine, but holy shit is he ever cute


L enjoyed the popcorn


Afterwards, we went to dinner with some old friends


Where we all looked really cute and happy


And my little boys made some birthday wishes


Monday morning, the boys went off to school and dad and baby got some quality alone time in their matching purple-ish tops


And that's about it. Dad hopped on a plane, went straight to work and fired someone. Fired her and had her arrested. What a way to end your vacation. The kids have been great. I expected whiny, discontent children come Monday night and I got just the opposite. They are calm and quiet and, well, they have a ton of new stuff to play with, so they'd better be nice to me for a while.

Tomorrow, I'd like to share with you the greatest poem ever written, if I may.
