A couple of "superior" kids

The Piano Festival was today - we have been working long and hard on their pieces but they both did a great job and earned "superior" ratings. Ethan earned his gold cup this year (3 years in the making) and Miles is one year closer to his second gold cup. We started a tradition 4 years ago that if the kids get "superior's" then we celebrate by going out for a blizzard at Dairy Queen. Well - I never realized when I started this how difficult it could become - I mean, going out for a treat , sounds easy huh. Well - for the first time since the twins were born we went out to eat - yep, just me with 5 kids. I didn't take a picture of Piper grabbing my salad and spilling it all over my lap, I also didn't take a picture of Miles dropping Abby's sundae upside down on the table, but I did get a picture of Miles and Ethan enjoying their well-earned blizzards.
I also have to share this funny video - for all of you who are wondering why Piper is beginning to weigh more than her sister - this is why. I think it is hilarious! Poor Paige. . .

Yeah, Heidi is back! So good to see the twins and a little of what is going on in your world. I wish we talked more... or ever! We may be moving to Portland soon. I'd love to talk to you about Oregon. I'll try to get your phone number from Kaylyn

I know what you mean about getting a treat, anymore, the children just eat them in the car! How terrible, but I've learned through the years what I can tolerate. LOVE the video, how fun!!
