Yesterday, after dropping the girls off at work, the little ones and I went and kidnapped my mom for the day. We did a little bit of shopping, and then home to lunch and an afternoon on the deck. The sun was still bright so we used the umbrella, but it was so lovely outside I could have napped!
Rachel talked Grandma into a game of Monopoly (horse edition) and they played for hours!
Here, Rachel shows of her "money."
Soon everyone was home from work and Tim and I and my parents went to dinner. That is a rare treat to go on a double date with Mom and Dad. When we got back, the kids were ready for bed, but we changed plans and sat outside on the deck.
We all bundled up to ward off the chill of the night, but it was so beautiful and clear out. We saw satellites and meteorites go by in the sky...of course there were many airplanes on their routes to places far away...hot tea and hot coffee to warm ourselves, little ones to share laps and snuggle with, Sarah fell asleep on Grandma's lap and then Kyle went to sleep on Papa's lap. It was tough, but they handled it well!
