      No, the dinosaurs stay at the restaurant. I think for the kids. 🙂 But we play with them too.

    Yes, all 4 year olds are tornadoes. My nieces are 3 and 5, and so well behaved, but even they race around and make me tired. I love them, but I love it when they go home again!

      It was a lot of fun to have them visit. It’s a nice reminder to not take things so seriously and have some fun.

    Congratulations on getting in your biking workout even with our iffy Northwest summer weather. Fortunately for me my main workout is indoors– figure skating. Though I wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more sun, either. Yesterday was good, though.

      I’m hoping for tomorrow too…the weather looks iffy. I won’t really know until tomorrow morning. Do you live in Portland or somewhere else in the NW?

    Awww….poor FK and Maya!!!! Glad you all survived the Tornado. I don’t have kids of my own, but remember when my niece and nephew were that age. If someone could bottle their energy and sell it, they’d be a multi millionaire a zillion times over! Have a great Friday Lisa.

      They barely survived! Both of them looked shell-shocked and walked around the house making sure the kid was gone the next day!!

    Kitties and little kids are like oil and water LOL! When my nieces were little, they were a terror on the cat I had back then. Poor girl. We are so not child proofed. Babysitting was always an adventure.

      Oh your poor kitty! I bet she was terrified.

      Our house has lots of breakable knicknacks, electronics and cycling gear that is all very appealing to a kid. And dangerous.
