Take a look at these sweet faces!
This was our view on Saturday night.
Brittany and Blake had a shindig at their house, and wanted to be kid free for a some of it. So, I gladly said we could watch them. I thought it would be fun to get a little glimpse into what life with four might be like. And to those of you that do it for reals, like every single day? I tip my hat to you.
Actually the night went really well, and it's fun having the extra kids around because they entertain one another. But I knew that we had to get these kids out and let them run and play.
And It's fair to say that they were pleased with my decision.
Honestly, it was such an awesome night.
The weather was glorious, the kids were running and playing, and I felt myself getting verklempt a time or two. Who's dramatic?
Check out his little underwear sticking out of his shorts. The mom in me found this cute.
And the PMS in me, found every little thing these kids did, just plain SWEET.
Like running up and down a hill repeatedly.
And being free.
I wish I could still feel that free.
Have mercy on me, I was just feeling it.
And about the time I could have started to ugly cry, Paul had a grand idea...
A brilliant man who knows how to slip a geocaching trip into any situation.
We hunted and hunted...
And some of the audience may have become bored.
But guess who found the treasure?
ME!!!! And sadly had to report to Layton that the "treasure" is a measly piece of paper you write you name on son. I don't think he was too impressed.
But good thing is, there were hills to be climbed.
And four little children with lots of energy to do such climbing.
And four little children who would have stayed outside playing until the sun was completely gone.
But eventually we had to call it a night...
I can't claim I could handle four of my own, but I can claim Saturday night a success, and here is my proof.
