Tuesday was a record high day here in Northern Colorado, so how could I resist packing up the cubs for another walk to the post office? Dad came over in the morning to help out and that made the adventure much easier. I was able to get baths done early, Dad and I got them fed and we were off in our stroller with baby sunglasses and all.
I've mentioned before how much I love Windsor, it's so friendly here. Well on our way to the Post Office yesterday I cut through the park and ended up on a street coming home where this little old man was sitting outside in a lawn chair. He had no yard, just rocks where a lawn should be so it had to be hot for him. But as we passed by yesterday he smiled and started talking to me about the weather and how it wasn't as warm as they said it was going to be. Today Dad and I passed by him on our way to and from the Post Office. On our way there he had his little dog on his lap and again we smiled and said hello to him and he went straight into the weather. On our way back he was still sitting out there and told us that he had just called the weather and they told him it was 77 degrees. So from here on out when I pass him I'll refer to him as the weather man. Sweet old guy.
Once we finished our walk we got the cubs fed and changed again and then we were back out the door. This time to the used baby store. A friend of my Mom and Dad's, Kelly, sent them over with a huge bag full of baby girl clothes. So Calista is now dressed to the 9's. However my poor little Alex didn't have much in the way of outdoor clothes. And after all I can't really dress him in pajamas and sunglasses... I don't want the other babies laughing at him. Dad and I each took a baby in a cart and I managed to get several pairs of jeans, shirts and a couple pairs of shorts for the little guy. However his 'It's All About Me' sister was not a happy girl and cried through the entire shopping experience. I figure it's because she's just like the rest of us females and it's just no fun if you're not getting any new clothes for yourself. Since she was so fussy I decided to forgo the grocery store and just head home with them.
The best part of motherhood today is buying new clothes for the babies. I could just go crazy buying those cute new outfits!
