My mom always comes over to help out and play with the girls on Monday mornings, and my dad comes over on Wednesday mornings. Both of them leave here just exhausted. Is it any wonder? Here's what the morning looked like today. First BobBob played Crazy Eights (not sure how many games, but for his sake I'm hoping it was just one or two): Then we all went for a trail ride (which involved a lot of walking/dodging for the grownups and a lot of riding for the kiddos): Luckily the girls are always clamoring for snack breaks, which means lots of brief rests in shady spots. Good heavens, from the looks of these pictures we spent as much time eating as riding: Then we had lunch (I know, I know, how could they possibly eat after all those snacks... sigh... it's just that little Ree said she was "stahving to deaf"). Afterwards, BobBob treated the girls to some vigorous horsie rides. And then everyone put together puzzles and played games: Then it was bubble time: Then story time (not quite the quiet, peaceful affair you might expect, but still relatively calm for this house). "Chickens to the Rescue" and "The Great Gracie Chase" were the two faves today: Then, finally, naps all around. Whew. PS: If you're wondering about the explosion of hairbows, we got some new ones to test out today and the girls went hog wild. We'll be twin-testing them for a week or so and then I'll post a product review with all the specifics.
