a parade, some pizza, and a toad.

Every week we've been getting to know new friends at playgroup. One of those friends invited us to her previous wards playgroup this past week for a parade. (I am loving playgroups... for reals, it's my saving grace) We brought along Taryn's scooter to decorate and ride around.

By the time everyone showed up, the kids were getting antsy and the wind had picked up.... but we weren't going to let that stop us.

I made sure to stick Taryn in the back of the line.
She's not one for speed.

Here is Taryn with one of her new buddies, Jocelyn. Such a sweet girl!

the line-up

In the meantime, Tenley sat still and quietly doing what she does best... eating.

The next day was Friday. I usually don't make any plans for Friday evening because Robbie's schedule is a little hectic at the moment. I never know what time to expect him home, but I was tired of making dinner, and decided we needed to venture out and eat somewhere new.

I had heard one of the playgroup mom's - a super cool one - mention a fun pizza joint that her kids love. Later, when I was looking through the mail, I came across a coupon for that fun pizza joint. You don't have to give me any more signs... it was decided, we we're out for a night on the town.

I called Robbie and said, "Get your behind home, we're goin' out!!"

Ok, so I don't have that much control, but lucky for us he was almost home and it wasn't even 6!

Loved this place. Cool and classy, yet still kid friendly. They even give the kids some pizza dough to play with and mold into whatever their hearts desire.

this guy was seriously showing off.
He tossed that pizza dough to be so large, it could have fed the entire Duggar family.

So yummmmmmmmy

Me and booga numero uno.

Booga numero dos.

That roll there is Taryn's creation from her pizza dough.
I had the show off guy put it in that big brick oven for a few minutes.

Oh, and I stumbled upon this guy the other night. He was hopping across our sidewalk.

I thought that was a tail.

He left that little present behind.
