Sara and Sean went on a couples’ retreat this past weekend with some friends and asked us to keep the kids for a few days—we were thrilled! We don’t get that opportunity very often, and it was a delightful weekend.
The kids (plus Sadie, the dog) arrived on Friday evening and stayed through Monday evening, and we had lots of fun. In addition to the Douglasses, cousins came and went all weekend long, so the house was busy and full.
We planned a few fun activities (bowling, laser tag, swimming, a movie) and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. They are a little older and independent, so we didn’t have to entertain them or keep a constant eye on them. . . very low maintenance.
It was kind of nice to give them directions (come and eat, get ready for bed, check on Sadie,etc.,) and then just watch them do what we asked. (Sadie stayed in the barn and it was cute to see how well they took care of her.) All in all, they were simply awesome to have around!
When Sara and Sean picked up the kids, they said they had a great time, and we definitely did too!
