two babies

I was watching the Hokey Pokey video with Abby & Zack (for the 400th time) and noticed there was another video listed under Johnny's name. I thought you'd all get a kick out of the memories. It's from about a year and a half ago...

"Well, it's not gonna do us any good sitting here whining about it"

Emily is traveling to Toronto to visit with my sister Tiffany and her family. She called me as she was traveling through upstate New York. The conversation went something like this:

Emily: "Hey, I'm in Peru, New York. Can you look it up and tell me if I am making good time?"
Johnny: "Peru?"
Johnny:"Are you sure?"
Emily:"Yes, why?"
Johnny:"Well you are almost to Canada, but you are going to cross the boarder in the wrong place!"

In the maze of freeways going through Albany, Emily ended up heading north for several hours instead of heading west. Now she is driving around the north side of Lake Ontario instead of the South side. I certainly could have been much worse, but it is pretty painful to tack 2 or 3 hours on to a 12 hour car ride with three young children. Oh well, I am sure tomorrow will be much better since the kids didn't really take much of a nap, and they went to be 3 hours later than normal.

Hokey Pokey Nosey Picky

Abby & Zack learned the Hokey Pokey today at the library singing time. We were having some fun watching them do their new dance, but it got a lot funnier when Lila got upset about a different kind of poking.

If you can't tell, bedtime isn't always our children's most rational hour.

p.s. Emily is making me point out that she had just taken the very cute piggy tails out of Abby's hair which resulted in the beautiful style you see her sportin' here.
