In preparation for a summer where the 6 of us will spend every waking (and sleeping for that matter) moment together 6 full days a week, we crammed a ton of togetherness into this weekend. AND IT'S NOT EVEN OVER YET!
Yesterday ,morning we bundled everyone up in the 50-degree chill to hit the downtown farmers market. OMG it was crowded. Ben could not handle walking at a snail's pace around the capitol in a throng of hippies, posers, and tourists, so we bought some popcorn, a funny onesie for Dorothy, and fresh sugar donuts while Cooper shrieked in the BOB and Dorothy snuggled in the Moby. Then we let Cooper run free and went to 5 Guys for a fatty lunch. Tip: If you only eat half a little burger and half an order of fries, your lunch is only about 400 calories.
This morning, we thought OMG why do we never go to the beautiful arboretum? It took us 2 hours from the moment we had this thought until the moment we actually GOT to the arboretum (which is only like 7 minutes from our house) because evreyone was such a damn pain in the ass, which was really the answer to our question. But still. We stayed for hours as the whine fest escalated, and we finished with a picnic at a neighboring park.

I was going to complain about how fat I am, but Ben just made a huge cheese and hummus snack, so, um, maybe later.
