Excited children, tired adults, crazy teens

Today was one of those Fridays where I just kind of went with the flow. Last night I remembered (was reminded?) that I was supposed to go with the daycare children to Maxx Fun, an indoor family entertainment center with rides, games, etc. Most people know that I don't like to go anywhere like that unless my mind is ready. Meaning: I have gotten myself prepared for the noise, the questions, the repeating myself, helping little people, being tired and hungry, etc.

Since I forgot, I didn't really get my mind right, but I went along with a good attitude because I knew I would have fun talking to and hanging out with Kellie (who I think of as a sister!). I was running late, got in the car and realized the teenager didn't let me know I was on "E" (She used the van all day yesterday) and proceeded on my way.

After picking up the field trip money from the children's dad, arriving at Kellie's, getting everyone to use the restroom, deciding to go back home and get Amber, stopping to get gas... we finally made it to our destination. The children had a ball! They enjoyed the rides, played the games and climbed through the tunnel, ball, slide thingy.

The teenagers tackled every game in their effort to gain as many tickets as they could. They laughed, teased, dragged and chased (me when I grab some tickets and ran!). By the time Kellie said we were ready to go I was tired, but happy.

One of the most exciting things about the day was the fact that Anna (you know, my 2 year old) wore panties the entire day and did not have an accident. She went from a potty training no go to an expert overnight. I am so proud, but I'll have to tell you more about that later. (If you're interested in my potty training adventures then click here.)

We took the kids to McDonalds for lunch and made the trip home. I didn't get any pictures of the teens or anything else... as you can see my mind seems to be a little off 'cause this post is kind of rambling and thrown together.

Enjoy the pictures though! LOL
