A hell of a storm and bowling

Well today we had plans to spend the afternoon at my friend Meredith's house letting the kiddos run around outside for a while. We started off by meeting at TGIFriday's for lunch and it just went downhill from there. Lunch was fine and the kids acted so well we decided to splurge for icecream. Meredith and I made a deal with each other that if we both ordered the brownie a la mode that we would start phase 1 of the South Beach Diet together tomorrow. So here we go. South Beach Diet here we come! Have you ever read what you have to eat on that damn thing for two weeks? Eggs for breakfast everyday it seems, and I am not a huge fan of eggs. but I thought two weeks, who can't do this for two weeks so yep, you guessed it, I got the brownie and man it was good. So we were finishing up the dessert when the manager started herding everyone into the kitchen as he was told a tornado was coming our way. So Meredith and I rushed all 4 kids, who were covered in sticky ice cream, into the TGIFriday's kitchen. Now I thought, oh this can't take long and it won't be so bad. WRONG...there were about 200 people in that damn kitchen for an hour!

We finally made it out of there (two hours after we arrived) and were headed to Meredith's house when she called her hubby. He said, NO GO on going home, there were tornado's all around the house. So we decided to head up to Vestavia to the bowling alley. Ever took four kids bowling who are covered in ice cream and have had no nap???? Wouldn't suggest it! They did great for a little while but soon grew bored, tired, and irritable. but we did score a few good pics along the way.
Oh almost forgot, we had to stop by the grocery store so Meredith could pick up some diapers (Annelise had shit running up her back by this point) and she picked up a couple of Monster Energy drinks for her and I as well. Enjoy the pics from today:
Cutler just bowled a STRIKE Annelise hitting the MONSTER

Wow! Sounds like you had an eventful day. We didn't do much, just went to church and B did yard work until the bottom fell out. Talk to you soon!
