We had three out of four of the quads spend the weekend with us.
Kailey stayed with Mama and Dada for a little 'one on one' time.....something that is TRULY special when you have four kids the very same age!
Friday evening we arrived home and the first thing they wanted to do was go outside.
I sprayed them down with bug repellent but I'm afraid there were some kind of insects in the sand.
Logan only had one or two bites, Harrison had more and Trystan had LOTS.
She says that's because she is the sweetest!
Dinner was easy peasy straight from Taco Casa!
They had a new Minnie Mouse Memory game and that was the 'before bedtime' activity followed by reading and then it was night-night.
For the first time the kids slept all together in the guest room with Trystan and Logan on the bed and Harrison on a pallet at the end of the bed and Granddad on the floor beside the bed!
We really do need to get double/bunk beds in there!!
Meawhile, I slept like a baby with a bed all to myself!
We ALL slept a solid 10 hours!
I put some surprise snacks and fresh water on the dresser for them to find when they woke up.
I have done this for all my grandkids and they always look forward to seeing what I have left for them.
For breakfast we served pancakes and sausage on a stick.
That was it.
Trystan said - before she had taken a single bite - "MeeMaw, we need more than ONE thing to eat or we will still be hungry!" For lunch and dinner I used plates with sections on them and every one had a different food in it! They thought that was more like it.
We spent part of the afternoon searching for bugs.
Can you believe they didn't anything but two dead beetles?
What child doesn't like to dig in the dirt?
I know it may be unusual for some kids but these nearly always take a good nap in the afternoon.
Today was no exception. They slept two and a half hours.
While they napped, I worked on my bedside table.
I painted the whole thing a grey that I already had. It was not chalk paint.
Since I already liked the drawers, I just dry brushed a little grey on them.
Then I sanded.
Next I used the dark Antiquing Wax. I was very careful at first because you are supposed to be able to wipe it off which did NOT work with the previous try. It proved to be successful this time and I love the way it turned out.
I cleaned up and slipped back into the guest room and slept the last 45 minutes with the kids.
Aunt Summer arrived and brought MOVIES!!!
We all watched Kung Fu Panda 3 - complete with popcorn!
After the movie we went outside in the front yard to play in the water.
Isn't he cute?
Summer sure made this evening fun.
I even had time to talk on the phone to our friends, Kimmy and June.
Since we were outside and in the water - I just added soap and shampoo and we were done with baths!
I hope y'all can pull up this video.
It is so cute.
Called the Bootie Dance!
Logan is the BEST!
All clean and in brand new PJ's from Aunt Summer!!!
Tonight when I was putting them to bed, Harrison said, "Aunt Summer is so much fun! I want her to come BACK!"
