We picked the 10 ripe strawberries. Half of those the bugs had beaten us to. Not a good year for strawberries here, the kids devoured them. Mason would accumulate three in his basket and then they'd each pick one out to eat. When I picked the last one, Mason took a bite and happily gave each of his sisters a bite before polishing it off. Such a good big brother he can be.

We spent some time with a few of the baby kitties.  Mason needed to put his in a bucket, of course. Elliot and Finnley carried their kitties around like a couple dolls. They weren't ready when it was time to put them back by their mommy and go in for a nap. Guess we'll have to visit again tomorrow.

Mason, Elliot, and Finnley hung out with Grandma Kim, Grandpa Tim, Great Grandma Jackie, Aunt Lindy, and Viggo this afternoon. They played bubbles and watched a movie, complete with popcorn. I'm sure they did lots of other fun stuff.

She gets her popcorn eating style from her Dad, no question.

And while the kids were enjoying their afternoon of entertainment, Tyler and I went on a date! To the movies! I'm using exclamation marks because we haven't been on a date, let alone the movies in oh... 4 years? Seriously. The last movie we saw in theaters was Blindside.

We went to see Neighbors today. It was funny, although I think I laughed more than anyone else in the theater. I kept thinking I need to check the monitor or that the movie was too loud and it was going to wake the kids up, since we only ever watch movies at home while the kids are sleeping. It was way better in the theater, volume up with no monitor hum and nobody waking up to tend to! Hopefully we get to do it again soon, as in not four years from now.
