Yesterday we took the twins to the Cubs game. My boys love going. I love being there with them. We will always be a Cubs family. We got in and got settled in our seats. I got out the drinks for my boys and a baggie of their snacks. We were each holding one on our laps even though I purchased 4 seats. I knew I would be putting our stuff in the seats next to us. Heston decided he wanted Mommy. I got Alex for the first few innings. Then the boys wanted to walk around so I took them by myself around the back and started walking with them hand in hand. The people swarm to us I swear and it scares my kids. I do my best to keep them in close to me so we don’t get in anyone’s way and we were walking on the outside of the area so people can walk freely but here they come at us. It makes my heart race and I try to answer their questions quickly so they can go away. I hate being rude but I can’t protect them, pick them up and run faster than any drunk a-hole trying to touch on them. Thankfully at this game we didn’t have that happen. We did the last game. Sarah was of course waiting for me so I could purchase a few things real quick and stuff them in my pockets to take back to our seats. The boys ditched me immediately and went to their SaySay Lol They can’t quite say Sarah so Heston turned it into Saysay. Whatever works, son.
The game was great. The Cubs won of course and we got to cheer them on as my boys would yell just because everyone else around us was yelling. I did pick Heston up once to cheer and he got a high-five from the lady in back of us. He sort of got his hand up for it but that’s the best he could do. He was scared.
We left early because my wife said Alex was getting restless which he always does and we wanted to get out of there before the entire stadium emptied all at once. She takes the bag, I take the both boys and off we go. My boys are both chunks at this point. It’s like carrying two bags of dog food around for 8 blocks. I had to put them down once we cleared the area. Then it’s a foot race to keep them in front of us and not off into the street. Heston is always the one that wants to hit the curb. If there’s a stroller that folds up and you can stuff it in a backpack, let me know. That would sure come in handy for us. If we could at least stroller one of them the other one would be easy to carry for me.
We went out to dinner after the game because other than the hot dog and fries my wife had we really didn’t eat much. My boys had their snacks. They didn’t want anything else. It explains why they both pigged out like I did at dinner though. By the time we got them both in their car seats and headed back up north they were passed out so my wife and I could hold hands as I drove everyone home. She has always done that since we started dating. She likes to hold my hand while I’m driving. I asked her why once and she said it’s a comfort thing. Girls are weird.
This morning my wife, Sarah, and I are going to Church. Everyone else is staying home. We have to stop at Starbucks on our way back and then we are all going out for brunch. My wife found this really cool breakfast place nearby that she wants us to try. She said they make omelette frites that she heard are the best. I’m sure we will have oatmeal or some seasonal fruit which is all my boys want anyway. Man, they can blow right through a thing of grapes. I’ve never seen anything like it. They have teeth enough we can let them eat them but we watch every grape. We don’t want any choking. We all literally watch them chomp it up Lol Sarah still cuts them in 3rds because she said I’m dumb for letting them eat a whole grape like that. If one of them had ever chocked on one yet I wouldn’t, but they really like to chomp hard. I made it into a big game. Chomp on it! Get it! And they do.
Today is lazy Sunday at the Cooper house. It’s going to be a little cloudy and there’s a small chance of rain but it’s going to be hot enough we are all going out on the boat again. I have to put it up once the weather changes soon so I want to get more time out on the lake. I just looked it’s supposed to be 78 degrees. A little rain won’t hurt my group if we get caught in it. This time I need to remember to actually bring the sunscreen. I laid it out on the counter and forgot all about it. Of course it was solely my fault and not anyone else’s fault. That’s okay I’m so used to getting the blame now I just say Yeah okay that’s my fault and we all move on. Even if it’s not my fault, with 4 women versus me it’s just easier.
We are in full Halloween costume mode. We have no idea what to dress our babies. My wife wants Peace to go in a baby pumpkin outfit because she has seen all of her nieces dressed as that. I was wanting something different. We are still searching. I’m really thinking it’s Batman time for my boys though Lol I have been dying to get the all dressed up as Batman. How cool is that! I can’t wait.
I better get in the shower and get myself ready. My wife hogs the bathroom as soon as she gets up so I need to get ready to go.
Have a blessed Sunday and go to Church! We all need a little Church in our lives. I will update more tomorrow guys.
