When trying to figure out what to do tonight to celebrate our six months together as family, we asked ourselves "What would Hannah want to do?" We figured that she'd want to eat sweets and look at birds. We drove into town and went to a nice sit down Chinese Restaurant. It took a long time for our order to come, and Miss Squirmy doesn't sit well without food. The restaurant has lots of embroidered wall hangings, and most depict birds. Hannah and I walked around an empty section of the restaurant looking at birds on the walls to try to keep busy. After several stern words from Daddy to keep her quiet and in the high chair, our dinner finally came. Kevin ordered the three dim sum items on the menu. He's really looking forward to our upcoming trip to Chicago so we can go out to a dim sum restaurant again. I had sesame chicken, and Hannah always has bits of whatever we're having.
It was way too late to go to the zoo to look for birds, so we decided to go to a pet store just to look. Hannah loved looking at the parakeets, cockatiels, and canaries. "Burrrrrrrrr da! Burrrrrrr!" We looked at turtles, fish, snakes, lizards, hamsters, guinea pigs, and ferrets. What fun! Sedona got a replacement for her little football that has seen much better, and cleaner, days.
On the way home we stopped at Dairy Queen. Hannah had a vanilla cone all to herself and ate it while sitting on top of the table (no high chairs) while in her pretty gold dress. Her bib caught a lot of the mess... but she was a sticky laughing crazy silly sugar-high girl at the end of the cone. Tonight she jabbered on and on more than I've never heard her talk before. Of course, I don't understand hardly any of it except for "Ma ma ma ma ma" and "Burrrrrr!"
So silly tonight! Whether from just being a happy girl or on a sugar-high, we heard lots of laughs and giggles back at home.
Here's a little video and a few photos with what we do around the house for fun. Good night!
