Some Funny Stories

I'm still working on uploading the video of Drew singing at church, but in the meantime I have a couple of funny stories to share.

Last night Dan and I had the opportunity to go on a date. Thank you Linda and Kevin for making this possible! When we lived in Davis every time we went out it was for Thai food or Indian food and we hadn't found a good Indian spot since we moved to Citrus Heights. We saw one near the gym and decided to give it a try. Well, after we got the kids all situated we headed over into Carmichael, only to see a giant sign in the window "Closed Tuesdays." That's an odd day to be closed, but ok. Luckily we have our little GPS navigation system and we looked for the next closest Indian Restaurant. We found one in Orangevale. So we followed the navigation back over that way and when we got there, saw that it was out of business. By this time it was almost 7 and we were getting really hungry. We thought we'd give the GPS one more chance and followed the directions for the next closest place in Roseville. And that place was a little cafe, the kind where you order and take a number and they bring your food to the table. That's not exactly what we were looking for and we were a little disappointed, but there happened to be a very nice Sushi restaurant in the same center. So we ended up going there and enjoying our date very much! We were not about to let a little adventure ruin our evening out!

Today Drew was standing with his foot in the dog's empty dish. I asked him to take his foot out of the bowl and he didn't respond. I said "Drew! I'm going to count. 1, 2, 3." He slowly took his foot away from the bowl and said with total innocence, "You're a good counter Mom." Dan and I both had to laugh at that!

And Ava! She says funny things, but it's usually the tone that is the funniest. Lately she's been saying things like "Don't touch, Daddy!" "Don't wantto diaper change!" or "No Mommy!" I think I'll have to capture it on video so you can get the full effect.

Oooo... Steve and I LOVE Indian food. We go to a great Indian restaraunt called Kaveri Madres Cuisine on Fulton just south of Arden (on the east side of the street). The service sucks, but the dinner buffet rocks! Even Molly likes it! We'll have to go out together for Indian!
