To do: walk!

Today I took the boys for our first long(ish) walk. We've been doing short stints over Union St. to Pete's (something I need an IV for) and down around Washington Square, but I haven't had the energy or motivation to do much more. Matt went to a job site today leaving the three of us (Cole, Wilson, and myself) in the house - I've never wished for 4-arms more. I can manage feeding both boys at the same time, but beyond that I'm a bit stuck - diaper time is a howl filled process, both Cole and Wilson love cuddle time but aren't so in love with their crib, and cleaning up is a near joke.

So, after feed #4, I loaded the boys up in their Double Decker and off we went towards the water. The boys LOVE walking - I'm telling you, they're runners in the making. We made it all the way to the Ferry Building where we met Mahau and Veronica for a quick hello, then it was time to head home to, you guessed it, feed. About 3/4 of the way home one of the stroller tires blew out (!!!) leaving me to hold that half of the stroller up while balancing the boys so their little heads wouldn't wobble too much. Oofa. We definitely need to work on our walking technique (i.e. setting up the stroller, carrying a backup tire, etc.

I had to do a double take when I looked at the photo. I couldn't tell if it was you or Rebecca Romijn! :) Let me know if you want walking company (and an extra set of hands) this weekend.
