A Date with My Middle Men

TJ got to go to California to visit his grandparents for Spring Break. David was also on a business trip in California. Jack and Kayte had school that week, so it was just Mak, Chatham and me. I decided to make at least one day special for them (besides letting them sleep in and slack on chores).
I took them out to lunch at their favorite, yet seldom frequented restaurant - Macaroni Grill. They were served up Spaghetti and Meatballs and were on Cloud Nine.
After our stomachs were full we headed to the theatre to see "How To Train Your Dragon" which was loved by all.

Just for Fun

The kids found my box of hats and it's been fun to watch them try them with various outfits. These were the first. I think this is my favorite picture of the year so far!
