The kids had a lot of fun with their cousins while in SoCal. Unfortunately, Don was kept very busy, so I do not have any pictures of their adventures down there, but I know they had lots of fun! Don's sister Therry, and niece Sydney, as well as his nephew Justin, niece Katrina, and their 3 boys kept the girls on the move. Between a health fair, playground time, and swimming, they didn't want to come home!
I also spent that weekend having fun...Friday night was a purse party at my neighbor's house and a Secret Sisters party at church. Saturday was the show Mamma Mia, followed by dinner, with Mom, Becky, and Brittany, and Sunday was a Scentsy party at my house. All of these events were interspersed with bouts of house cleaning. Fun and productive, in 4 short days!
That brings us to this week. Brittany has been bored. Monday night, when Abby and Emma got home from Daisy Scouts, Brittany decided to host a slumber party in the family room. Little did she know that all 4 girls, PLUS Don would fall sound asleep within minutes of laying down:
|Brittany put down an air mattress for the 4 girls. She slept on the couch.|
|Maddie and Katie, curled up together.|
|Abby and Emma. Isn't it funny how they all paired up?|
|Even Don dozed off. He and I went to bed though. Leave "roughing" it to the kids!|
Yesterday she was so bored that she took the 4 kids out to wash my car and Don's truck. The end result was 2 very clean cars and 5 exhausted kids. They came in, dried off, and put pajamas on, then lay down to watch a movie while I cooked dinner.
|Abby, in her winter pj's, for some strange reason...it was almost 100 degrees out!|
|I think Katie was actually playing with that ball when she fell asleep.|
|Emma, under a bath towel, sound asleep.|
|Brittany might've fallen asleep while texting someone!|
|And Maddie. OK, Maddie didn't fall asleep, she took a nap between vehicles.|
Tomorrow, I'll let you in on the strategy we are going to try for our summer activities this year. Stay tuned!
