full house

This week I had the joyous opportunity of tending Carlene's three kids while they went away. After four nights of very little sleep, I am beat! We had so many adventures like the water park, where they played in everything but the water

They had pillow fights

and we went on bug hunts

They entered the Macey's coloring contest.

and spent a good share of each day on the john deere. We also watched movies, ate Wendy's, attended library reading time which was also a photo shoot for the City's website. Afterwards we went to the Red Barn for ice cream. Hallie and Waylon got to spend some time with their Grandma Ruth. Trey and Waylon had a playdate with Aunt Lacee, Maddux and Swayzee. Grandma Carla did her share of entertaining. I guess it takes a village to babysit Carlene's Children.

I saved the best news for last... Now it is Carlene's turn to take our kids and we are off to Vegas to celebrate our 12th anniversary.

I tended my cousins three well-behaved girls a couple years ago. I was never so happy to get back to one child my whole life. Not that the girls were bad, I just went from 1 to 4 children and I was tired from the constant....

well, children.

Enjoy Vegas!

Definitely makes you appreciate the 'simplicity' of your own kids a bit more when your family size multiplies.
Have fun chowing down at the buffets!
