Blogger finally let me post video today.
PS - I tried to put up video but blogger was being a pita.
Hadley wanted me to take this picture for CarCar, since she loves turtles.
Needless to say the Critters will not be venturing out in the neighborhood unsupervised, sorry guys. Oh, and while Brother thought it would be a good idea for me to get a machete, I think that I am going to have to shoot that one down, sorry big guy, Daddy would probably sever his own leg with one of those.
This picture is just wrong on so many levels. First, the baby looks super stoked to be there and second, the father looks like his is about to go straight up Michael Douglas in Falling Down on someone.
At first I thought it was probably not a good idea to tote your Critters to a bar. Rian concurred with this line of thinking. The more I thought about this I really don't see a problem with taking the little ones while mom and dad enjoy an adult beverage. Let me lay out some ground rules though:
1. Happy Hour - okay, 11pm - bad. Make sure to leave the bar by6:30-7pm.
2. Obviously have 1-2 drinks max, especially when driving. It still applies if you walk, you don't want a PSWI (Pushing Stroller While Intoxicated).
3. Don't expect people to alter their behavior because you brought a child. If you head to a dive bar don't expect to run into Miss/Mister Manners.
4. Try to sit outside. If its nice sit outside, I know that Reese, especially, like to watch people.
5. Respect the other patrons. This is my big one, I am not a fan of crying babies in restaurants (Rian will vouch for this). If your Critter gets upset, head outside or grab your tab. If you want other patrons to respect you, respect them.
That is about all I can think about, let me know if you guys have any other ground rules or if you think that I am just nuts for thinking it is okay to take kids to a bar.
I just don't think that my fun time has to stop just because I procreated. Apparently, our friends to the north agree with me.
Lt. to Rt. - Reese, Andrew, CarCar, Aaron, and Hadster.
Brother taking the reigns.
Brother going with the one-handed approach.
