'Escape' to Lake Samammish!.....

Ahhh well here is Saturday about 7 at night....I should probably be giving all the girls a bath but instead here I sit on my lazy butt catching you all up on the last two days.....

Well I suppose I will begin with Friday......I worked..."Yeah" (in my best sarcastic voice).....but we did take the 'burban into the auto shop and Shawn met with the adjuster.....looks like they will be done replacing the bumper on Tues/Wed and will cost about $1075.00.....Great!....So we will pay our deductible and then get it reimbursed when the person who hit us insurance pays our insurance....this was the fasted way to get it fixed and we couldn't be driving it the way it was....so here we are a family of 5+Dog. driving around in our 2008 Sky Blue Ford Escape Hybrid.....can you believe that was the biggest vehicle they had at the rental car place....oh well at least insurance covers it or most of it.....at first I was like hmmm....I don't think we will be able to fit 3 car seats in there...but to my amazement they all fit, although I wouldn't recommend it....seems a bit too cramped....good thing its only for a few days....

So last night we had a super-dooper totally yummy dinner....(Thanks Sindy)......I roasted a pork shoulder.....and made these super good pork tacos that I have coined the name "Tasty Tomatillo Pork Tacos ".......I will reveal the recipe when I start my recipe blog (soon I tell you)....anyway it was really good....I think I ate 3 tacos....after dinner...Joe and Shawn started their boxing tournament on the XBOX 360.....can we say "Boring!"...So after the girls went to bed I took my mom to a movie....I had bought tix ahead of time knowing about the game playing that was going to happen last night....so anyway mom and I headed to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix....all's I can say is "Awesome!, Loved it!"....It was a great time....I think we got home around a little after midnight....so nice to get out for a night...I think my mom had a good time too, I think the last movie we went to together was "The Devil Wears Prada".......yeah it had been awhile since just her and I went to a movie....Thanks again for going mom!.....

This afternoon we all packed up into the Escape and headed to Lake Sammamish State Park. We met up with Joe, Erich and Molly (they were staying in Seattle for a weekend get away)....It was a great time BBQ-ing with friends...The girls had a good time running around....Kiara even stripped down to her pull-up, she was trying to tell me "Daddy said I could go in the ocean"...I looked at Shawn and asked if he said it was OK for her to go into the lake....and of course he was like 'No'.....I love how Kiara is already working on us with who said what.....too funny...and you know my girls if one of them does something the other one has to too....MJ follwing this notion took off her tank top.....silly girls.....we never did make it all the way out to the lake...too bad....anyway....I wish we had taken some pics but you know us...we were charging our camera and totally forgot it.....oh well....All in all it was a good day filled with good friends and good food....Oh how I love food!....

So now it is almost time to put the twins down....and I am feeling a bit tired....so I am outta here....might be an early to bed night for me...I am totally lame!
