Thursday - the boys arrived in the evening, we had a little bbq with hamburgers and hot dogs. Then it was time to put the kids to bed. I'm pretty sure we let them watch Scooby Doo.
Friday - the boys helped me with grocery shopping, then we picked up a pizza and went to have lunch with James at his office. After lunch, the kids and I went to the Bean museum, where I learned that a whale's tongue is the size of an African elephant. Crazy. Later in the evening, James came home and after dinner, he took the boys back to the office to watch a movie on the big screen and I stayed home and put Isaac to bed.
Saturday - the day the boys were most looking forward to. We had promised to take them swimming at the neighborhood pool (which is awesome and has water slides and a big splash area for the smaller kids). The pool didn't open til 1, so we had to kill some time. First we jumped a bit on the neighbor's trampoline.
Sunday - Sunday was beautiful Baby Lily's blessing, so we went to their church with all of the Wilde family and afterward enjoyed a luncheon at Jeff and Diane's. The boys really love playing over there, so we even went back for dinner. :)
Monday - This is where it all stopped being very structured and I can't really remember what happened any more. The boys played inside this day, mostly I think. They liked making forts out of the couches. One morning they made a baby trap for Isaac. They caught him pretty easily. The captive seemed to enjoy himself a bit too much though:
- Max and Jonas made great friends with our neighbors' four boys, and they played in the yard together a lot. We all took a trip to the library one day to have a story time and get some books.
- We crashed a neighborhood birthday party. The boys really wanted to play with some kids, and the Dusbabeks weren't home. So I went looking for other families in the neighborhood with kids. No one was home, oddly, but I kept trying until finally - I found all the kids! They were all at another neighbor's house for a birthday. They very kindly invited us in. The kids had fun, got to play on the trampoline, eat cake and ice cream, and I got to say that I have crashed a party.
- James took the kids for another movie night at the office.
- We chased the marching band around the neighborhood. :) Some kids from Provo High marching band knocked on our door asking us to sponsor a march-a-thon. So, we gave them a check, then later we heard the band. I hadn't realized the march-a-thon was right then. So, the kids all ran outside (the neighbors were out there too) to watch the band. We followed them down a few streets - Max and Jonas really wanted to see Cameron. Then we all went home again.
