We have the kids this weekend, so of course, it was not normal. They both slept well, even with Ashby sleeping in our bed. They were both up by 7:30, which is not bad at all. After breakfast, they played. They enjoyed having Grandpa here to play with them.
Late morning, Ethan and Eric from next door came over to play in the backyard for a while. When they left, we had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and then headed out to the park. We were a little disappointed at the park as they had torn down the big climbing gym. The kids still had fun on the swings and seesaw. Fortunately, there were not many children there, so it wasn't a problem.
On the way home, we picked up a pizza for our dinner. By the time we got home, Ashby was beginning to complain about not feeling good, and sure enough, she had a fever. We gave her some medicine and spent some quiet time on the couch, watching some cartoons. Ashby eventually climbed into Grandpa's lap in the big chair and they both took a nice nap.
Brooks took his bath by himself and had fun playing with the water. He then got ready for bed and after playing a while, he went to sleep before 7:30. Ashby still had a fever, but since she had napped, she was not ready to sleep yet. She sat quietly watching more TV.
A little later, the missionaries came by and stayed for a short time. They practiced giving one of their lessons to us. We asked them to keep it short, though, since it was time for Ashby to get ready for bed. When they left, she gathered up some books and wanted Grandma and Grandpa to both come up to the bed upstairs to read. We read one long book and then decided to go get into bed. After a few minutes in the big bed, Ashby wanted to go to sleep in the bed in Brooks' room.
Brooks woke up in the middle of the night and I had to hold him for a few minutes to get him back to sleep. That woke Ashby up, so she took more medicine and then came into our bed, where she cuddled for the rest of the night.
We loved our day with Ashby and Brooks, except for Ashby getting sick. They are so much fun! We love them!!!!!!!!!!
