Dinner and a Movie

We went to dinner at the Olive Garden last night with my parents and my Grandma. It was so much fun and so yummy. Preston did so great, I couldn't believe it. He entertained himself taking everyone for several rides up the escalator while we waited for a table. It was a half hour wait but he didn't mind one bit. Then we finally sat down and he surpassed all of our expectations. He sat like such a big boy all through dinner. And we were there for about an hour and a half. He played with his cars and his kitty cat until food started coming out. He refused to eat any of the breadsticks. I know, what?!?! Those things are incredible and he was completely uninterested. Instead Preston ate the crutons from the salad that were soaked in italian dressing. And when the food arrived Preston picked up his fork and dug right in to his macaroni and cheese. Now that he's willing to sit and eat at dinner it makes this whole going out to eat thing much more enjoyable for me and Brad. Then came Preston's favorite part. My Mom ordered some chocolate mousse cheesecake. As soon as the waitress set it on the table Preston reached for it. My Mom tried to offer him a bite and he demanded the whole piece. So we all ate around him. Clearly he is my child since he loves chocolate.

Then today we took a chance. My Mom called and invited us to the movies with them. I started to say no until she told me they were going to see Marley and Me. I really really wanted to see this. It was almost naptime so we decided to give it a shot. I say give it a shot because last time we took Preston to the movies we left half way through the movie. This time he did great. He sat on my lap and watched the screen for the first half hour, then my sister Shannon took him to play video games for about 10minutes, and when he came back he fell asleep. And I loved the movie!!! It made having kids and being married seem so much more realistic than most movies do. I laughed and cried, seriously I cried during a kids movie. I definitely reccomend it.

Now if only Preston would wake up from his nap. It is almost 7pm and he's still sleeping. I have a feeling it's going to be a long night.
