Dinner out!

Somehow this weekend, we actually managed to have dinner out at a restaurant.

Although there were several "edpisodes" while we were trying to get dressed and out the door, that I thought for sure, we weren't gonna make it.

I swear, FOUR has been the roughest age so far...on my patience, at least.   Anyway, after several, "Do you two want to go, or not?  Cuz you're sure not acting like two well-behaved little boys." we managed to get ourselves OUT the door!

And yes, I used my bargaining chip: "If you want to go to dinner with Daddy and me, then I get to pick out your clothes!"

They looked thrilled, right?
Logan on the right, "Cheezzzzz."
Austin, "Whatevahhhhhh...."
By the way - I had one orange shirt and one white one....but Logan wanted an orange one with a pocket, too. 
Thank goodness - we had one or we NEVER would have made it out of the house!! 
I'm not a fan of the way they look together....but then again, I do consider the outfits leaps and bounds above the self-chosen competition!

Some posing pre-dinner date.

Again, I have to give a big shout to the twins who eat like champs! 
We skipped over the children's meal and ordered them Chiken Alfredo with aspargus.  YUM! 
They scarfed it up,  They also ate our salads.  
And when the warm bread arrived, Austin enhaled the aroma with his eyes shut and said,
"mmmmmm!  Smells heavenly!" 
These boys know GOOD food! 

Some after dinner, clothes-stained shots!

OH - it was so nice to get out, have a nice meal, a bottle of vino,
and (for the most part) two well behaved children!

YEAH!! Love the outfits!! Don't youlove bribes/threats:>)

Dinner out is always a treat, and even better when there is good behavior!

They are so cute! You are very brave taking them to a restaurant :)

Dmitry STILL has a thing for orange and camo. The one good thing about him becoming a preteen is he is slowly backing away from all things camouflage. Now it's only 80% of his wardrobe! :)

PS...I love you more than Kelly does!

Oh, I am so behind!!!

And, I am so with you on the bribing/threats! Sounds like our house right now.

Happy dinner went well!
