Av: "Mom, will you get me a zwink (drink)?"

Mom: *walking over to the sink*

Av: "No mom. I don't want any water today. It tastes like beef."

...poor dad.

we took the kids for a walk the other day and Avery was riding her little tricycle. Can we say S.L.O.W. it was so hard to be patient when K and B were about 3 miles ahead of us... I was pushing the huge double stroller with only Ry in it because Had decided to freak out... so Dad was cuddling with her... he was bending down trying to hold Had and push the bike at the same time....

Dad: "whoa. my back is burning. "

Mom: *laughing at Dad's pain* "Yeah, I wonder why..."

Avery: "Dad. It's because of all the problems that you have."

insightful Av. thanks.

my little dumplings..

the other night the whole fam was sitting in the living room coloring pictures... Brad was VERY proud of his and ran up to Dad... had it hidden behind his back and said "prepare to be amazed Dad.."


We did a ton of yardwork yesterday and had to take a load of rubbish to the dump.... we loaded the crew in the truck and took off.. on our way home Av was cracking us up...

Av: "when are we going to be at the dumpling?"

M: "uh... we just left the DUMP sweetie..."

Av: "no. when are we going to the dumpling?"

M: "Av, you eat dumplings and you take trash to the dump.."

Av: "Gross. I don't want to eat those dumplings."
