Girls Dinner Out......

Saturday was a good day......Lila slept in until 5.15am....it was nice to get 6-6.5 hours of sleep....I think it was too much...after feeding Lila, I turned on the coffee pot and DB and I went for a big walk around the neighborhood.....Not too many people out at 6.00am on Saturday morning...anyway it was so nice to get out and get some exercise....great way to start my morning....We got back and I enjoyed some quiet time with my coffee cup, my computer and the morning paper....Oh how I enjoy having it quiet enough to be with my thoughts.....

We attempted to go to the mall after breakfast....I wanted to buy a new pair of shoes with the last of my gift money....YES, I have a shoe addiction, partly because I don't want to buy new clothes in a size I don't want to be (lil more post pregnancy weight to lose)....at least me feet stay the same size....Well we get to the mall all is good for awhile, we have Lila in the double stroller and Mikiah and Kiara are holding Dad's hands......then after finding out Nordstroms doesn't have the particular shoe I am looking for we head into the main part of Bellevue Square....to check out another store that might have them......So we are going along and then I remember there is a play area ahead......Shawn takes the girls up the escalator to avoid the play area (the store we needed was on the 2nd floor) and I find the elevator and when I meet them upstairs....both girls are staring down at the play area....ugh....neither of them would come with me to the store.....they both started running to get down to the play area.....we catch them.....Mikiah lays down on the floor of the mall and starts crying and getting mad.....Shawn manages to pick up Mikiah, all the while she is crying that she wants to play....Kiara is holding Dad's hand also whining to go play....then Shawn sees Mrs Fields Cookies....Shawn took the kids to get Mini Choc Chip Cookies....while I quickly look for the shoes in the store.....no such luck...with the girls already acting up we head out of the mall as quickly as possible.....and home for lunch and naps.....

After nap it was dress up time for Mikiah...she loves to wear my heels....and of course her safari hat she made at her friend Curtis' birthday....here are some pics of Mikiah....amazingly she walks great in them....

My night ended perfectly....dinner out with my good friends Kari and Michelle...no husband and no kids....it was girls night out and daddys' night in (John and Curtis came over to hang out with Shawn and the girls).....We girls were out toasting Michelle's new adventure back to New York.....we sure will miss her and are sad to see her leave.....we had a great time....we ate a spectacular authentic Italian restaurant in Issaquah called Nicolino....can I just start out by saying their bread dipping oil is yummy....and all the dinners at the table...Penne Sovietiche, Lasagna al Forno, and Pollo e Risotto....we sooooo excellent...I will be taking Shawn there soon....It was nice to get out and have a glass of wine with good girlfriends and great conversation......We came home to find happy dads and happy kids.....
