April 14th - Gotta babysit!!!

After a normal Saturday - straightening house, some laundry, running errands, etc. - we had to go babysit the grandchildren.  Notice I said "had to"?  Yeah, sure, we were forced to do it!

David and Lisa needed a date night, so we were happy to oblige by helping with the babysitting chores.  We went over to their place around 5.  Bill and Ashby ran out and picked up a pizza and some cheesy bread.  Brooks went to bed by 7.  Ashby played.  We were surprised when Brooks woke up an hour or so later - very unusual for him.  He fell back asleep for just a short time and then was awake again.  He has a runny nose and I think he was just having trouble breathing.  Anyway, I let him just get up and play some more, so he and Ashby played for quite a while in her room.  By 9:30, we were well past bedtime, so they both went to bed and fell asleep right away.  They are very easy to babysit!

Lisa and David had gone to see the arena football game at the Gwinnett Center and had a fun time.  I think it was the first time either one had gone to arena football.  Mostly, it was just good for them to have a night out without the children, so they could relax.
