Thing is, adding a kid (or two) you woudl think wouldn't be *that* much extra work. Already feeding 2 kids? Just add a 3rd to the assembly line---no biggie right? But seriously, over the course of the day do you know how much additional work just 1 kid adds?! Changing into pjs, brushing teeth, baths, breakfast, putting shoes on, etc....each thing you do all day suddenly has those extra minutes of adding a 3rd or 4th kid, and by the end of the day suddenly you've added a lot of additional work to your day! Phew, I'm tired :-) Also the mess created seems to multiply exponentially when you add kiddos...I have no idea how they make messes so fast!
But they had fun...and now they are back home and I'm back to my two kiddos. Enjoy some pics of our day! (And I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off....so these are not quality photographs...just quickie snapshots of cousin lovin ' ;-)
|Trying to photograph 4 kids, ages 4 and under is pure hell LOL|
|Harper borrowed Brielle's clothes and hair ties today ;-)|
|Here they were "camping"|
|This is how items travel from the bedroom to the living room....wanna find Raya's room? Follow the trail of destruction.|
|Damn littles pet shop :-P|
Lunch was well rounded...carrots and oreos haha
This tunnel traveled around the house all day.
Harper was miss congeniality today...Brielle squeals anymore when Raya hangs all over her, but Harper doesn't experience that "love" as often so she was more willing to put up with it! ;-)
Brielle was thrilled to be ignored by Raya :-P
Harper was somehow sucked into a game of beauty parlor. She just sat there for about 20 minutes while Raya and Sawyer stuck silverware in her hair and pulled on her pigtails and declared "this looks beautiful!" and "she has lots of hair so it takes awhile to get ready" LOL
|She never squealed or tried to get away! haha...just sat there in utter disgust :-P|
|Brielle says "I'm outta here before they come after my ponytail!"|
