Yesterday was the both kids first day of summer vacation! We started it off with getting the 4 kids pictures taken at JC Penneys. I will update with those when I get them in my hand in about 2 weeks. Moving along...after lunch we went to play outside and the wind was really, really windy. I didn't want to baby outside because sticks were falling out of trees. So I asked the kids if they wanted to go to the library and get some books and movies. The answer was a loud, YES! Our library is only a few blocks away so we rode our bikes there, the baby was protected in the wagon thingy attached to my bike. We had success finding movies and tons of books. I actually had to cut them off on their books. The basket was getting too heavy! J and I talked about mornings and how we didn't want to three older kids sitting in front of the tv while we slept. They get up so much earlier then my body is wanting too. ha! The idea is when they wake up at the booty crack of dawn they will be able to read books in bed. I will say this morning it worked GREAT. So happy...I'm dancing. After we got back from the library we made homemade pizza (yummy) and popcorn and watched a movie while we ate, dinner and a movie kid style! Around 7:30pm we got out the sleeping bags and pillows and made a huge bed on the living room floor for a sleepover. They talked and giggled while I got Peanut to sleep and then I joined them. We each told stories. The kids wanted to hear my stories because I decided it would be a great time to tell them about my childhood as this was something I used to do as a kid. They loved hearing about my childhood and it was really fun to relive some of those memories in story and in action.
Don't forget that 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting the Kid in You photo contest and the picture that Monkey (5 years old) took made it to the finalists, it is me swinging. So please go vote for us A Day in the Life of a MaMa. Please make sure you are voting for the right one as I have been told there is some confusion.
