The church picnic was too much fun! Audrey was a handful since she just wanted to run (walk quickly and trip a lot) around and eat other peoples' food and look through their bags, purses, etc. The Gardners brought their dog Foxy and Audrey thought that was the neatest thing. Since Foxy is used to kids, he wasn't afraid of her and didn't mind her not so soft petting.. but Audrey was a little thrown by Foxy's enthusiasm and kept walking (stumbling) away giggling. Of course, the picnic was right during nap time and so Audrey was a little less than cheery. Anytime we tried to stop her from stealing from people or running away from us, she screamed like a banshee. So, we left a little early so she could get a nap.
After the blissful 2 1/2 hours.. siiiiiiigghhh.. we got Audrey up and trekked to the East Mountains to see Jenn, Jerry and Rachel. Audrey was so excited to play with another kid! She did very well and we didn't have to chase her around everywhere, which was just awesome! We talked a lot and ended every comment with "your mom" or "that's what she said".. even if it didn't make any sense whatsoever. I think that's why it was funny. So, after a few hours of goofing around and enjoying the cool mountain air, Audrey decided that she was a crabby stinker again and we beat a hasty retreat to get Audrey in bed for the night.
Sleepy babies are so great!
