So Wally came home early from work, and we decided when the boys got up from their naps to head up to Stonebriar, walk around, and have dinner. We got there and started to walk around, Brayden was out of the stroller so his walk was more or a jog over the excitement of not being in the stroller. You would think he never had freedom if you saw him, he was in a constant jog, so we headed over to the play area and just let him go wild in there. Alexander was in awe over the kids and play area, and chimed in with his screams of joy to the already loud area.
Finally, Brayden stopped playing and climbing to have a snack, so we left the play area to go have dinner...Brayden was a little worn out, but still did not want to go back in the stroller, so Wally carried him to Cheesecake Factory (yummy). It had been awhile since we all went out to eat together at a restaurant, so it was Alexander's first experience in a highchair out and about. It was wild to see the boys sitting next to each other, and I guess it was an experience only a mom would get excited and mushy over because when I brought out the camera, Wally, looked at me like I had lost my marbles. But today, honey, when you read this, you will be so happy that I took these :). Alexander was funny to watch as he was often distracted by other people around us talking, or busy munching on his rice cracker, or trying to steal Brayden cup. Brayden now is like a little well behaved man when we are out eating. Compared to 7 months ago, when he did not want in the highchair, and once in and got him distracted that only lasted for a few minutes and he would want down and fuss....so we ate fast to quickly get out. How quickly he is growing and maturing and communicating.
