We spent them with my little sister and her baby
This is "cousin Boston"
Have you seen anything cuter? Or rounder?
We did get one warm sunny day, which we spent picnicking at the park. It also happened to be Paul's day off, which makes for a lovely day in any kind of weather.
The cousins could have swung together all day long...
Love those faces...
My kids couldn't get enough of this little guy.
As for Boston, well...he liked'em much better when they weren't 2 cm from his face.
Michele and I spent our days talking, laughing, joking, crying, and just enjoying each other's company. And the sight of our kids together. And eating treats. And drinking diet cokes. And Izzes. And staying up until 2 every night.
We also managed to squeeze in some shopping for my house - which we then decorated. I love it, paint color and all! (pictures coming soon). Couldn't have done it without you Shell : )
Our last (and biggest...and craziest...and stupidest...and worst) project was putting together the kids' new bunk bed.
It only took us 12 hours.
We started at 3:15 pm.
Do the math.
Most of the time we wanted to do this...
But it turned out pretty well so we celebrated with another Diet Coke
(#6 of the night?)
(P.S. Michele is the Drill Master)
We realized just before I took her to the airport that we didn't have a picture of the two of us - at least not one where we had possession of our minds.
This one's not much better though. We're going on less than 3 hours of sleep.
And last, but not least
FAVORITE QUOTES OF THE WEEK:
"Why do goats have spikes coming out of their heads?"
"...and WHAT is that noise?!?"
"They might not all be psychos."
"I'm putting a note in here."
(and much much more)
The week was...PERFECT.
Thanks for coming Michele and Boston!!! We love you and we all miss you already!!!
