16 stops
Whew! I get tired just thinking of that many, but that is what we did yesterday. Left the house around 10:30 and returned home about 5:30. To be honest (Not that I am dishonest at other times!:-), I did not have to get out at every stop.
Interspersed in our gallivanting, we ~
Had a picnic lunch.
Took a quick browse through the zoo.
Spent time at the park.
Ahhhhh, yes, more fresh pineapple from The Fresh Market.
I love that store, and yesterday I loved it even more because I had a $30 gift card from someone. As you can see by the container, I attacked the fruit as soon as I arrived home. I could eat an entire pineapple every day! Hold on before you are too impressed. . .I also washed it down with some chocolate covered pretzels! :-)
And in the midst of all the stops, I lost count as to how many times I was asked, "How much looonger do you have to go?" "How faaaaaar along arrrrre you?" To which I want to roll my eyes and say, "Oh, I am about 22 months along, and I am having triplets." Sigh. . .I have weeks left of enduring that question. When I stopped by the BJU Press Distribution Center, they were at least tactful - I might add. It was more of a concerned look and a genuine asking of my well being. To top it off, they had a guy carry all the boxes to my car. It is amazing what a little bit of Christian love in your heart can do!
Hmmm. . . Now where did I put my pineapple?!

Sorry about the very strange misspelling... having trouble typing this morning (with two toddlers in the room)! The correct word is "looks." :-)

Looks like you had a full but fun day (at least for the boys!). My boys enjoy seeing pictures of your boys.

When people ask the question, "How many months are you?" Trint suggested that you should say how many months old YOU are! Ha Ha!!

The countless times I was asked that question, especially when I was pregnant with Andrew. I had one patient hunt me down and continue to tell me she just KNEW I was having twins. I told her the ultrasound says there is just one and she didn't care what it said. I had to endure this woman (she was a frequent flyer at the office) even after my due date! She was in the office the day I returned from maternity leave and I hunted her down to happily inform her it was just one baby that weighed almost 10 lbs. People are so mean and I find it worse when it is women who have already been thru it. Do they forget?

What a wonderful day. I love it when we take days like that.

ahhh, the day every week set aside for running errands. It has to be my least favorite things to do especially with 2 children in tow. I just caught up with your blog, the pregnant pics are cute, if it's any consolation, you look like you really are all baby, that always made me feel better when somone told me that!

I just LOVED the pregnancy questions. With Connor, they asked, "Are you SURE there's just one in there?" With Kent, I was working at the mall part-time, so I got to enjoy complete strangers rubbing my belly and asking the "when are you due?" question every half hour. By the end, I was ready to say, "What baby? What are you talking about? I'm not pregnant..." and storm off in a pretend huff. :) (Oops--just wrote a book...)

I think the question I hated the most was "What are you having?" I got asked that before I was asked my due date. And my OB/GYN didn't do routine ultrasounds so for my first two, I didn't know. But one night w/my last pregnacy we were in Kroger and ran into a guy who came to our church once in a while but whom I'd never had a conversation with. He looked at Tony as if I couldn't hear and said, "Hasn't she popped yet?!" I about strangled him. The nerve!!!
