Last month Zach and Rylee came and spent the weekend with us. The kids miss their cousins so much so this is a great opportunity for us to spend extra time with them. Friday night the boys had a birthday party to go to and super nice mom said Zach could attend too. So Friday night I took all 6 kids to Paradise Park, expecting it to be a drop off party- not so much! Instead we end up staying all 3 hours! The kids did great especially considering how tired all the girls were. Of course Hayden hit the jackpot on one game and got over 200 tickets which in turn means the always painful experience of picking out over priced prizes was prolonged even more! At one point, Kate puts her half fininshed ice cream bowl in my purse, we lost her ones in the arcade, Rylee had one meltdown missing her mommy and Peyton peed out her diaper all over my khaki pants!!! Sarah was laughing when I called her to talk to Rylee and told her about our night and was still laughing. She wouldn't have been laughing- I am a LITTLE more laid back than her:)
Saturday was Jackson's birthday party, so we had two hours of fun at t Party Dome. Then Jerry took the boys to the NAIA basketball tournament that was in town. They were there all day and didn't get home until 8:00 that night. All the boys came home with numerous ballloon animals and hats. We took the kids to church with us. It was our Sunday to teach Sunday school so the boys went to Clubhouse for 2nd service.
Zach: "Mom, their church is the best. You go and eat donuts, then you go to recess, then you play Wii and you never even have to go to church!"
This made me smile- glad it left a good impression! The kids came home and played outside Sunday afternoon until we had to take them back to meet Sarah and Dusty. It was so much fun having them here. We are planning to have Annie's kids down this summer and Hayden and Jack are planning to go stay a week in Abilene this summer. I love all the memories these cousins are making together.
