Date night!

Logan and Daddy scored tickets to see one of their favorite basketball teams play.
As I've mentioned
(a 1,000 times)
Logan is a sports fanatic and will WATCH any GAME.
and actively cheer and coach his team on.
Austin climbs around the stands, asks for more snacks
and basically does not sit still or watch ANY sporting event.

So, Daddy and Logan went to the game.

Both boys got cameras from their Maine Grandparents for Christmas.
So, they each took a picture of the other before they left.
And took their cameras with them.
So, that they could "look" at the other twin when they missed him. 

And Mommy and Austin had date night.

And Austin included/invited Nonnie to join us.

Austin walked in to his restaurant of choice,
and because I told him "The Man" is in charge of dates
and with a little coaching,
he told the greeter,
"This is my mommy and my grandma, and we'ld like a table for three, please."

I thought Nonnie and I would get to spend more time talking
than when we out outnumbered with both of them,
(Yes, I know it's 2 to 2, but trust me, we are outnumbered!)
and I think the three of managed to have a very good time.

Towards the end of the meal, Austin was getting a little weepy for his brother.
And in the car on the way home,
he said, "Mommy, will you lay down with us?"
It's a question they ask every night, so I just ignored it.
But then, I heard him crying.
"Austin?  Baby, what's wrong?"
"I don't wanna be a ME, Mommy!"
"I have to say,
'Mommy, will you lay down with ME, not US
 and I don't wanna be a Meeeeeee."

Austin was happy again once we got home
and after a little bit, his brother and dad returned.
Logan immediately showed us pics from his camera
- including the all important shot of the mascot!

Austin talked about his night out,
and told Logan he brought him some leftovers.
Logan was ecstatic about that!

It was really, really cute to see them greet each other and 
exchange "stories " about their evenings away from each other.

We are trying to make a conscious effort to get
the boys used to being away from each other.
Next year, it's the Big K
and we are putting them in separate classes.
What is that - like 6 hours away from each other every day?

So sweet. That is so cute (and sad) that he said he didn't want to be a me. Love those boys of yours!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your boys are ADORABLE!! My girls also don't like to be away from each other, but sometimes it is needed. ;)
I am from Maine, so I love hearing about Maine grandparents! :)
Take care...

That is the sweetest story!!! I love it! I love seeing brothers love each other so much. I have two boys and it warms my heart so, so much when they give each other a big hug. One of my sons is named Austin, too. :)

SEPERATE CLASSES??? Oh, I could cry thinking about it!

Hannah said...

Wow you and the girl with Mason, Lory? look so much alike! Like father like son I guess.

Loved the little "Don't want to be a me" story.
