Hot dog hangover

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! We had a fun day with friends at a festival and a barbecue and then we all walked down the street to watch fireworks. It was a great day, but a long one for adults and kids alike.

We are strict about the kids sleeping in their own beds at night, but in the mornings they sometimes crawl in bed with us. They were up until almost 10:00 p.m. for the fireworks so they both came in early, but immediately fell back asleep. Chase and I tiptoed around to get ready, so they could sleep as long as possible. I know Clay ate least two hot dogs, and God knows what Avery ate (she never stops eating!). Maybe a hot dog hangover is worse than one from booze… 

Still in their 4th of July shirts

The normally early birds don’t like being rushed to get ready, so they were a bit grouchy. I only buy Capri Suns for special occasions (and even then, only the flavored water kind – still no nutritional value, but supposedly they have less sugar) and there were some left over. So, I offered them Capri Suns with their breakfast…and let them bring them in my car. This doesn’t happen often, but desparate times call for desparate measures! Bribery isn’t always a bad thing. It made Clay smile and Avery started singing “happy birthday, America” again. Mission accomplished.

Chase drinks Diet Coke when he’s hungover, I drink Sprite. Apparently the cure for hot dog hangovers is Capri Sun flavored water.

 By the time I finally made it to work, I needed a drink too…

I don’t even drink coffee, this is hot chocolate.
