Happy 5th Anniversary, Uncle Adam and Aunt Leanne!
I’d love to do the full report today, but doubt I’ll have time for that later; so I’ll do a double update tomorrow.
The news that I can report so far is that we have another amazing weather day; and that’s perfect for the anniversary party that Mom and Dad are hosting here – and having the finished patio is very convenient for that. I’ve pretty much been working around here all day since finishing breakfast, but I’m writing this while getting ready for the party – and my job as one of the babysitters for the night. Michael’s working the dinner shift, so he’ll miss the dinner – and the party until he gets here; but Rowen and Tim will be here to help with the kid control; and they’re all staying for another night of camping.
That’s going to make the younger cousins happy, since we hadn’t originally planned to do that, but the weather is so great; the camping is better than having the gang of kids in the house – and the party will tire them out. Giving Uncle Adam and Aunt Leanne a kid-free night is part of the reason for our overnight babysitting services, and the other parents that will be kid-free too appreciate our efforts; but it’s also going to make things interesting in the morning when all of those Moms are going to be brought back here so that they can have a Mother’s Day breakfast with their kids.
I can write about that tomorrow too, though, and need to finish up with getting ready and get back out there and switch from work mode to kid control duty. It’s going to be a fun night, and all of the work today to get ready for the party and our third camping adventure in a row will be worth it; but I expect to be exhausted by the time Michael, Tim, Rowen, and I finally get to sleep tonight. That’s something else I’ll have to write about tomorrow night too, and while you can flip a digital page in my future to read all about that, I need to get out there and live it now; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
