today we went to the grand opening of a lego store at a mall near us. i (foolishly) assumed there might be a little buzz around the store but we'd elbow our way through it just fine. HOLY NO BATMAN. the line was around the entire block and was 2-3 *hours* long. you know, just the thing i wanted to do at 11 o'clock on a friday morning. let's just skip lunch and nap and stand in line! augustine started crying and it was so so pitiful and heartbreaking but what could i do?
there was an alternative event going on at the mall where they were building a 6? 8? foot yoda out of legos so we did that.
the line was only 45 minutes long which is pretty much as long as you can expect a 2 and 4 yr old to wait i think. (cementing in my mind that im so glad we are going to myrtle beach next week and not disney!)
a group of random lego star wars enthusiasts we met in line. notice all of them are wearing the same subject on their shirt. this is a 4 yr old version of comic con, im serious.
oh that? that's a picture of the window i CAUGHT MY SON LICKING. good times
& this is not related to the lego event but this is how david and i found olive, at the top of the stairs, asleep one evening when we went to bed. does she not look like a chalk drawing. new meaning to "dead asleep" nyuk nyuk.
olive and i got to spend a lot of time together last week one on one because augustine was staying the night with my parents the entire week attending their church's VBS. we went to the zoo one day and it was exponentially more relaxing than taking two kids. gesh you dont realize what you've gotten used to until it is halved!

BEET THE SYSTEM!
this was her "taking my picture"
