Mommy of 6 for 3 days!

This weekend my friend Tracy’s kids stayed with us. Her and her hubbie were on a much needed weekend getaway! The weekend was really good. Just your typical kid antics going on….but I do think all the kids played the most ever in their life this weekend.

Friday after school they all played outside. We are blessed to live in a cul-de-sac with great neighbors and lots of kids. Two & a half hours later we went in for dinner and bedtime routines. My newest additions took a while to get to sleep but all went well.

Saturday the kids all went out to play from 9 am – 3pm. We did not even bother going in for lunch, Jackie, Ben’s mom, and I ordered a bunch of pizza and fed all the kids and hubbies. The kids got a kick out of a picnic in the garage. While I went to the store they watched a movie and some napped, then everyone went out side again for another hour to play before dinner and bed. It was a perfect day. Perfect weather, lots of play and fun and quick and easy bedtime routines. Plus lots of good chat and down time for the mamas. Nothing like soaking up the sun while you watch all the kids entertain one another.  All were WORN OUT!

Jackie had errands to run after lunch and needed to get Ben’s bike home while he stayed out to play.  Her choice of ways to take the bike home cracked us up and of course I got evidence of it. She was such a tropper…I even told her it was going on the blog! Not sure if she really believed me…but true to my word here it is!

    I agree, Saturday was the PERFECT day. We love having you as our neighbors. Bummed you will be out of town this weekend. I’ll probably be sitting in your driveway all weekend anyway!
