My Mom has been visiting since Sunday. This whole week the dishes have apparently done themselves, the laundry switches on it’s own, and cookies bake while I craft, babies are entertained while I exercise. This magic ends when my Mom goes home. It’s been wonderful to have an extra set of hands, though I think my children are getting tired of having someone else tell them what to do.
This week we’ve made some huge bubbles, dyed eggs, exercised almost every day, taught Grandma how to bowl on the Wii. Apparently I mainly took pictures of the bubbles and the park today (Holliday Park).
At the top of the Spider tower. Natalie is singing the old school Spiderman theme song.
When I used to put the girls as babies in the grass, they’d cry. Leo, he eats sticks and stacks them on rocks.
Going down the stairs on the nature walk.
This is why we call him our puppy dog. And bark at him to come play. And then he pants and crawls over. It’s hilarious in person, and not nearly as demeaning as it sounds, I promise.
BIG Bubbles. Check out how in this Giant Bubble Wand video on about.com
Dowel rods, metal washer, yarn and screw in eyelets. 5 minutes and then HUGE bubbles.
Hooray for Grandma’s visits!
