Dads night out

Last night was the nearly weekly boys night out. Cody loaded up the boys and headed to Noodles for their favorite dinner.

Ultra wide lens is why Nicholas is a little distorted.

Nick was reaching for the camera, the boys each took a picture of daddy then they headed out.
Unloading the boys from the van, especially in parking lots when alone can be a little scary and it can be very challenging to unload other kids while one or two stand next to or on your feet. Since I unload the boys for gymnastics each week I now have them leave the van and sit on the curb or sidewalk while waiting for everyone to be ready to go. When Cody unloaded them last night he noticed that the boys are pretty well trained.

They line up and then insist you take a picture. This was the first dinner outing with just one parent and no strollers. Cody said the did great at dinner, they went straight to the usual table, cheered when their dinner was delivered and made the usual mad dash to the door and to Jamba Juice.
On the drive home they stopped at the capitol, Cody wanted to get some shots of the sunset and let the boys run off energy. They love the capitol, lots of hills to run up and down, stairs to climb and curbing to walk along.

After running around the front for a while they headed up stairs to look out from the top of the stairs.

One of their favorite parts of the capitol is the fountain behind the building.

Who doesn’t love splashing in the fountain? The best part of this is the view from the side.

From behind is pretty stinking cute too.

A short video of the splashing fun.

Andrew is talking about finding the big red gooey fish, which is from an episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. They have been obsessed with finding the gooey fish.

More running around and it was back to the van. Cody snapped some great shots on the way.

The boys went straight to bed after getting home and were out without a peep.

  1. Love how you posted pictures of the entire event. Don't you just love it when you tire them out and bedtime is a breeze. Very cute boys..they look similar to the age of my trips.

  2. I was always a little freaked out about getting my 2 out of the car. We had a rule that they had to stand next to me and touch the car - both hands flat against it. It looked like I was arresting them - lol - but it worked. Now they're not even in car seats anymore!

    Love your adventures with your boys!! They're adorable :)
