they wasted no time listing all of the things they wanted to do, with the first being camping in the back yard. We all worked together setting up our camp site, nestling our tent between a few trees out back.
the next day, we set up our pool and using their brooms, the girls made a whirlpool.
after a refreshing swim, we moved on to lawn mower driving lessons. this can only benefit me in the future, at least until the novelty wears off.
on day three, janey was the one that decided to sleep in. it must have been the late night in the tent the evening before. these two woke up early so ri helped aub with some homework :)
once the sleepy head awoke, we got dressed, picked up a doughnut and hit what the girls call the "wooden park". (yes mommy, we remembered sunscreen and hats!)
the rest of our days included more swimming and playing in the water,
a blueberry pancake breakfast,
a trip to the farmer's market,
lots of time playing
our tv decided to quit working so this one felt she needed a little movie theater instead. Not sure why this was more appealing than the tv in mommy and daddy's room.
we're going tv shopping when you get home momma!!!
as far as cooking goes, we brined a chicken to cook on the rotisserie for mommy when she returns
and baked banana chocolate chip muffins.
phew...i'm tired revisiting our time together while mommy was away. i enjoy these moments with our girls...they're growing up too fast! I'm glad mommy was able to have a nice visit with her friends in florida. while she is gone, i am reminded of all she does for us when i'm responsible for it all and feel blessed. i'd rather cook than clean and do laundry any day! :) on that note, i'd better get that chicken out of the brine and on the rotisserie! momma is gonna be home soon!!!
safe travels baby, cant wait to see you!
