Aug 18th - Night of Babysitting

This was a fairly normal Saturday.  Bill had to work in the morning and managed to cut grass in the afternoon.  I was at home except for a quick bargain shopping run to CVS. 

The best part of the day was that we went over to babysit with the kids so Lisa and David could go out to a community theater production of Once Upon a Mattress.  Lisa had played the part of Lady Larkin when her high school did the play years ago and she was excited to see it.  They went to dinner first, so had a nice night out.  She said the production was really well done, especially for a community theater play.

We had a fun time with Ashby and Brooks.  Bill ran out for pizza for dinner, which they both loved.  He and Brooks also took a walk while Ashby and I played on the Ipad.  We laughed so hard.  Brooks finally went to bed around 8:30, but Ashby wasn't tired.  She had taken a late nap and was a long ways from being ready to settle down.  We tried, but she just wasn't sleepy.  She is usually not allowed to nap for that very reason, but she had secretly slipped into her mommy's bed and fallen asleep and then wouldn't wake up, so....  When Lisa and David got home around 10:45, she was in bed trying to sleep, but had not yet accomplished it.  Needless to say, she got back up when she heard mommy and daddy!

So our Saturday started just plain normal - but ended with tons of fun!
