Harry Potter anyone?
My mom and some of her girls.
I pretty much wanted to throw up at the thought of going to my brother in law's graduation early dinner at the Grove. I knew my kids wouldnt' last during the actual graduation, but did want to still celebrate with them. But I still had big reservations.
One, I would be without Jason. Since we were meeting at 2:45 p.m. and he is swamped. Two, it is not Fuddruckers and thats about all the fine dining in public my kids are used to. Three, we needed to look nice. And Four, did I mention I was nervous to take my kids to a nice restaurant at the Grove by myself where my kids needed to look nice, I'd have to take Luke out of school early and its about an hour drive at that time?
Look, its the Harry Potters!
But fortunately my sister is a genius (You are too court). Seriously I was impressed. Genius.
She brought lots of these fuzzy wire things that I can't remember what they are called at the moment. And they saved us. That and the bag of candy that I was giving to them little my little in between course.
I also had brought my big stash of low expectations. Holy cow we survived and I even got to put some food in my mouth and it was yummy.
I was quite a sight walking down the street at the Grove with my now big old pregnant belly, with my 2, 3 year old (for another week) and 6 year old. The Grove is full of kids, just not moms with that many kids...and no nanny. I was amusing myself.
And did I mention that at the Grove they were wonderful? Just wonderful. We rode top deck at on the 'train'. And saw the Coy fish....real cool the McCoys were checking out the Coy....see still amusing myself.
So for your attention, check out the cute little Harry Potters.
Special thanks to my parents and awesome Paula for banishing themselves to the kiddie table as well. We should pat ourselves on the back.
I think thats a ring and bracelet.
By the way, I'm totally getting these for church. Just imagine giving a talk and the speaker looks out all choked up and feeling the Spirit, and then they see my row of Harry Potters....that would be very amusing.
Congrats to Nathan for finishing dental school...and for my sister for surviving him in dental school...now its just boards and maybe moving far away from me...but I'm pretending that part isn't going to happen. Was going to spoil where, but didn't want to get my sister mad at me...I'll let her tell. If it works out, I know you'll want to visit.
I did one time make an awesome curly mustache for in my nose but didn't get a picture of that.
