4 and counting

(I promise this is my last post today!  Just catching up)

On Thursday night, my brother dropped off his daughter, E.  She turned 3 years old a few months ago and her and Bryson LOVE to hang out.  She is such an easy one to watch here, because she just loves to watch her cousins and is always playing with them (not tugging at my leg, well, not all of the time anyways).
On Friday, I had two of mine (one of them got invited to a pool party after school, <whew>) and E.  I tried to run some errands, but it was hard to get everybody buckled (plus it was raining so I was standing in the rain trying to buckle everyone and getting soaked), so I gave up after only running two errands.  They ate lunch at 11 and were in bed for nap at noon.  I was already exhausted.  Usually Bryson goes right to bed, but he found it fun to sit and talk with E, so they needed a few reminders to settle down.  I was sitting on my bed, waiting in case I had to go in their room again, and I just feel asleep!

We had to go pick up Carson at 4:30 from the pool party.  I wish I would have taken a picture, because E wore her high heels and carried her wand.  All of the moms were oohing and aahing over her.  I called up my husband on the way home and told him we were going out for dinner since I was still exhausted (even after the 1.5 hour nap).

At night time, E told me how she loved me SO much and she wanted to give me her kitty cat for me to sleep with.  I have NEVER seen anything SO pink AND it had a bow!!  If you know me, at all, you know that I'm not a huge fan of pink.  Sorry kitty, you will have to sleep on the floor (E put the kitty in my bed each time before going to bed all weekend long).

We had a pretty busy rest of the weekend (graduation party, Hudson's birthday party (this added more kids!, zoo trip, playing baseball), but it was fun (and tiring).  I think three kids is enough for me!  But we'll still take E when we can :)

Here the two got captured and put into jail by H & C.

Bryson was SO scared of the dinosaurs!  I almost thought we'd be turning around and wasting the money I paid for the DinoTrails tickets.

My little explorers!

  1. HAHAHA, didn't know she brought that cat! My coworker from work dropped it off at my desk without one word of pre-warning.... Evie saw it in the car and needless to say, she would notice if it'd now "disappear" or "have an accident".... :) LOL
