Happy 4th of July!



Let me just start by saying I was wearing my new (that's right) underpants and I felt warm all under(you thought I was going to say something else!) today. I will let you in on a secret it's been a while(long while and no longer a secret) since I've bought some of the finer underneath garments. Rarely wear them, however at my age everything is going south if you get my meaning so we all need a little support. You may have already noticed I haven't had the ass lifted yet. Anyway, I decided yesterday that I was sick of my underpants touching my bra and worse rolling down under what I refer to now as my stomach when I sit down. So, I went nuts in the lingerie department at Kohl's. Oh, Shut-up! Victoria Secret's doesn't make them for us full figured girls. So, you might say I was excited about today. I got to wear my new panties. No rolling, and no lines......

I had twisted dh's bribed him with special favors (fill in the blank) to take the family to the National Zoo in celebration of the 4th of July. You know as a family. A real family. He freaked at first. I think he thought they might keep the monkeys(or maybe me...come to think about it maybe that's why he started rushing....) but he finally came round especially when he got his wits about him and remembered the prize. Don't have to tell that boy twice. *snicker*

We crawled out of bed and into the shower before the roosters! Well, it sure as hell felt like it anyway. I couldn't wait to put on my new panties though. It was almost like the first day of school. The anticipation was so great. Guaranteed to make my "tush" look lifted. I was rearing to go and dh wanted to be the first in line at the zoo. He's like that. You would have thought they were giving away one of those big mac daddy 72" plasma T'.V's the way dh was barking orders and salivating for everyone to get in the car and get in there now!

Anyway, girls were fed, dressed and loaded in the family machine along with all the necessities required when traveling with the little monsters by 9:00am. (tons of diapers, wet wipes, bag of animal crackers, dried mangoes, bottle of wine for mommy, camera, water, sippy cups, aspirin,--for mommy -- phones, more aspirin for mommy and their favorite stuffed animals Remmy and Emile). Me included. Dh was the Gestapo on a good day he knew we needed to depart D.C. long before the evening festivities took place if we stood a chance of getting home tonight. (traffic and all) Needless to say he had his cattle prod out and wasn't afraid to use it. We filed into the family machine like obedient inmates who were afraid they would end up in solitary confinement for questioning the guard. Total anal freak a-do...Me rolling the eyes the entire time. After all I've got on my new panties. I've got all day and the world waits for me!!

We cruised into D.C. in record time. (40 minutes) Traffic was amazingly light. That won't be the case later this afternoon. Pity the fools that do brave it. Especially with the down pour that's expected. Anyway, we had a great time checking out some of the new exhibits and viewing some we had seen b.c. (before children) Girls got such a kick out of the otters, and the prairie dogs. We could have stood there for days. They kept squealing and laughing. They really were more of a "show" than the animals. Abbey has adopted Katie's "fake" laugh. So, funny. We call it the "mommy" laugh. Yeah, they got it from me. I'm a big faker.

The food at the zoo is, well.... gross and very expensive. We ate at a sub, pizza place and needless to say I had gas the rest of the day! I couldn't wait to get home so that I could explode. Let it rip. Seriously. I would have let it rip in the family machine however we did have Mai with us and I do have a little scruples about me. Stop laughing at me!

Of course the day would not be complete without some rude or inappropriate conversation. We had the pleasure of meeting another family who had adopted from China at the petting farm. Everything was going swimmingly and then the daddy throws in "well, we asked for twins too but man are we glad we didn't get them, cuz we are able to give her so much attention". Dh and I look at one another and both nod like "yeah, we give our girls no attention". We wished him luck with his upcoming second adoption and excuse ourselves. We both commented in the car what a strange comment it was. I must have a beacon on my head that flashes and says "please, please say something, anything rude to me I can take it"! Shzz!

Daddy is napping and I'm all stretched out here on the sofa(passing gas with a smile on my face) just reflecting what a wonderfully great holiday it was. I will leave you with a few fotos of our grande day. Happy 4th of July to all!!!! I have to go someone is calling in his "chit".....

Ha ha! Looks like a fun day. New panties are the bomb!

I feel a little strange writing this while you are... um... (at a loss for words here)

We don't have a zoo anywhere near here. Sounds like a fun day, though!

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Steffie B. said...

Looks like a great day.....glad your bum was feeling up beat! lol

FINALLY did the house Meme.....just for you.....we are nothing fancy!

I'll chat when we return from our reunion! ;)

Sophie's Mom said...

Just looked at your pictures again... I didn't realize you had TWO sets of twins! (pic #1)

;)

Sam said...

New panties...ahhhhhh....

Get pics. Sounds like a great day! Sometimes you just have to "take one for the team" to get what you want!

Ms. Dragonfly said...

New panties?
I couldn't tell, I kept looking at your chest twins. Niiiiiice!!!
As for the rude comment, I bet the guy has no idea he put his foot in his mouth, not that it's an excuse. But I find men can be 'simple' that way. Perhaps he was dazzled by your hotness?

secret agent said...

First of all...........did you buy the underwear I recommended from Kohls. I've got them on right now and they are staying put. Life is better to not have to pick every 4 seconds.

The jack ass twin comment: I think they really wanted twins, didn't get em, are jealous, and had to vocalize their satisfaction with their life of perfection.

Thanks for the visual of you on the couch smiling.

Beverly said...

Sounds like fun was had by all esp your dear hubby.

What a strange comment!! Nope I can see your kids receive no attention what so ever, ever. It is obvious they lack parental attention. Whatever!! and what makes fatherdude think adopting a second wouldn't take attention away from the first?

The twins comment, sounds like jelousy bit his arse. Asked for twins but didn't get them, big green eyed monster.
Looks like a great time at the zoo, undies and all.
Speaking of jelousy,undies that lift your butt and boobs that look that good,I need to go to Kohl's.

Cindy from central NC said...

LOL LOL....love the post. It's been so totally one of my laments the last 2 years...what in the HECK (HELL) is up with "things going south!??" I so do not appreciate this aspect of getting older/wiser. Just not fair. I once heard Maya Anjelou ( the cool poet..probably spelled it wrong) say on an Oprah show (so funny coming from graceful Maya): "I think my boobs are in a race to see which one can make it to my belt first!" Ha ha ha...she said this on national TV. Got love it....
So, I ditto Kerri....you can actually get undies at Kohls's to lift everything at once? :)
Cute and as always, fun pics!
Hugs,
Cindy

PS I really do need to think about incenting Ed with "treats"...
PSS That first pic of you is stellar. What a hot mamma you are! Jeez-a-ree.... :)

Mark & Michelle said...

What no pictures of the panties?? You disappoint me...

Wine and the zoo - that sounds like a GREAT combination...must remember that one!

Glad you had a wonderful day.

Yes they are "secret agent's" panties. Well, not her exact panties but the one she raved about. No more digging and fidgeting for me! What a revelation to discover I did not need to wear them up the crack of my arse that there really were panties out there that would fit my very round buttom. ha ha...

Two set of "twins"?! But of course!! I take them with me everywhere...

Miss Cleo said...

I love the water spraying pic.

Diana said...

My what a gorgeous set of boobtiful twins you have!
I just bet you were blaming all the odours emanating from "ur-anus"
on your poor Shepherd doggy. Great plan. (what's your doggy's name?)

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

Maggie........ And funny that you should mention the smell. I did think it was the monkeys but it was me. Yep, forgot the deodorant again, but I did remember the underpants!

Jeff and Valerie said...

I need some of those panties! What a great you all had. Love the photos. The girls are beautiful.

We haven't ventured to the zoo yet. It has been too hot here for a full day trip. Can't wait though to see what M thinks!

Salome's Mom said...

The pictures are just beautiful, you guys look great. It looks like a lot of fun was had by all.

crazylady said...

Katie looks so happy nestled in the big cushy couch of your bosom!

mommy24treasures said...

its kind of sad the things that make us happy once we are mommy's and buying everything for the kiddos. I am the same way.
Zoo looks fun one of our fav places.
ugh on the stupid daddy comment. Puhlease...

Yes, Minister... said...

OMG ~ You crack me up! See what all I missed while we were gone :D

Kat and Colin said...

I love that peach shirt. I have one for Sophia too, she picks it out to wear all the time. The girls are simply too cute.
