Somewhere on the road between Tucson and Chicago, we pulled off the interstate for gas...at a gas station with no restroom. What!? Who designs these places. So we had to go on a bathroom hunt. I chose Starbucks. Shawn rolled his eyes, but stopped and Kira and I ran in. On the way out, my sweet girl after my own heart asked for some Chai tea. How can I resist that adorable little girl...er...well, I can, but I thought it would be rude to only order for myself and tell her no. (which is what I usually *do* but we were traveling...) So I of course then had to figure out what to do with Evan. Something chocolaty and "like" a milkshake was whipped up by our friendly barrista. He was thrilled.

When we got back to the van Shawn rolled his eyes further back in his head than before. Then Kira asked if she could text Aunt Brie.

So. Here are some pics of my kids, appearing to drink coffee while my 17...er make that *7* year old texts from her BOOSTER seat. (Now I'm rolling my eyes). But rather than put a stop to the insanity, I took pictures for scrapping and blogging. Never fear, I have my parenting priorities in perfect order. ;OP








Cheers! It's chocolate! It's "special"! It was really sticky to clean off the side of his seat two hours later...









And then there is this: Seriously? What more can possibly be said?
