Day 14!


  Parents return tonight so we are celebrating with green eggs, ham, and muffins for breakfast and an afternoon of "new" play dough fun.
The grandparenting adventure has been a blast. Now for some days of quiet rest! Ha!

Day 13

Ever taken a 7 year old, a 5 year old and a 2 year old to two hours of coming attractions and a movie?
Quite the experience with water bottles rolling all over the floor, several complaints about the "tippy" seats, mad dashes to the toilet, and the two year asking to go home after the coming attractions!
Was a cute movie, though! Loved the octopus!!

Days 10, 11, 12 on "grandparenting" duty!

Rain for two days required indoor play: reading, Legos, and kiwi crates. (Check them out at kiwicrate.com. Great creative projects for various ages mailed to you in a shoe box, complete with all needed supplies! Requires some adult interaction, which is always fun and memory making!)
Spent an afternoon again at a nearby park and went again to the zoo. A cloudy, misty day is a great day to go to the zoo since it was basically empty! All the animals were outside enjoying the cooler, moist air. We also rode the train and a merry-go-round. The 4th ended with "poppers" and sparklers, with two of the three actually staying up until dark to see some fireworks.
