On Friday we went to Costco to eat lunch. The kid can legitimately pound an entire Costco hotdog, it is amazing! He's the pickiest eater on the planet, but for whatever reason he will scarf down the whole hotdog. As we were walking into Costco we had to pass the TV section which happened to have Cars 2 playing on them, so of course we had to stop and watch for a few minutes. . . talk about manipulation, I bet they make a killing off of parents whose kids refuse to take another step unless the parents agree to buy the dang movie! Well I contemplated it, got manipulated and decided to be the cool aunt so I told him that B and Bah had a surprise for him and I got the movie for him. He was pretty excited about it and proceeded to watch it 3 times that day, 4 times the next day and has probably watched it another 12 times since we left on Sunday afternoon!
Here's a couple of videos from our car ride to and from Costco (sorry they are kind of long but my grandma and aunt hardly ever get to see Drake because they live across the country so they like to see pics and videos of the kid!), the things he says are pretty hilarious, he picks up on everything you say now and will repeat everything that comes out of your mouth. One thing he likes to ask all the time is "why??" seriously every other word is "why" so Whit started telling him "Because those are the rules" which he isn't a huge fan of hearing :)
The surprise from B and Bah
This is what you get when you ask for a smile :)
So excited for Cars 2
Pops doin his thing. . . You should see

Classy attire there Whitter Poots
although I'm not one to talk either! haha
On Saturday, I went running errands with my mom while Jared and my Dad took Drake "Bammin" over at Lowes. I guess Lowes and Home Depot do this craft thing for kids every other week where they can get a project and put it together. That's right up Jared's ally so they went and picked up a monster car set and Bah helped Big put it together at home, pretty stinkin cute. Later that night Jared and I took Drake to see Puss in Boots, it was a really good movie! It was kind of fun to play parents for the evening, happy to report there were no major melt downs or potty accidents (he's only been potty trained for about a month now, so I was a little nervous considering some random kid peed on my sister and her husband in a movie theater a couple years ago, true story!!)
Bammin with Bah
Watch your fingers there babe, can't
imagine that a 2 year old has very great aim!
On Sunday we went to church, had family dinner, watched the Patriots play some freakin crappy football, and then drove home. We should have left earlier than we did because we ended up driving through a dang blizzard! The most annoying part was that the roads were totally clear, but it was snowing so hard that we literally couldn't see more than 5 feet in front of our car. Supposedly we need to get fog lights for the Subi, yet another upgrade that Jared wants for the car. . . Let's just add another $400 dollars onto the $900 dollars it will cost us to put a bike rack on the top of the car, no thanks baby!
We tried to get some pics before
church but the kid wasn't havin it!
This is the best face we got
We had slightly more success when it
was just him with Bah and his sword haha
All in all it was a great weekend and it was fun to get away from Provo for a little while! And now we're back to the grind this week. Scary story from today, I almost died this morning as I was driving up to school. Some idiot ran a red light while I was turning left and was about 1 second away from t-boning me. He didn't even slow down, he was probably texting the fool! Seriously scared the daylights out of me! It only strengthens Jared's argument that Provo drivers are the worst drivers out there, and I now I have to agree with him!
