Fun With the Grands

 Ashley & Benjy took a trip to Washington DC to visit Jeff & Rachel so they asked Christina to come babysit. So Christina asked me to come help.  I started it off until she could get there the first night and I finished it up the last day while she traveled back home. There was lots and lots of stuff planned and Christina wanted me to just stay up there at nights with her so we could both be able. She was delegated to get up in the wee hours of the mornings! Sounded like a perfect plan to me. Rees and Cooper had school Wednesday and Thursday so that kept them busy during the day at least.
 Shayla was a doll. Speaking of which she was so precious carting around her baby doll in her stroller. She is one busy girl!
 Christina and I had great fun dressing her up and doing her hair and playing with her.
 Dane needed a playmate most of the time too or we discovered he got into trouble. He sure can be quiet about it too. He loved to play with us. I brought some stuff from home I thought he might be interested in to keep him entertained.
 Christina put up their bounce house for them to play on and we discovered Shay was terrified of it. It took her most of the day to coax her onto it but she was finally successful.
 Two determined children. One determined to get herself up on the pony and another determined it was HIS! Dane ended up sharing like a champ.
 It was Dane's birthday while his parents were gone but Ashley had left everything ready to go. His presents were wrapped and the cake was in the freezer. Talk about prepared!
 The present opening was hilarious.
The kids were so good. Huge shout out to Rees and Cooper who were both so helpful and cooperative. They liked playing with the "little kids stuff" as much as Dane when they got home from school. I'm so glad everything went well and Ashley & Benjy got to go have this little adventure.
During all this Mendis & I had Tuacahn tickets and Hayden & Megan graduated from Dixie so I had to leave Christina on her own with the kids for about 24 hours. She handled it no problem even taking the kids all up for a family lunch and some pictures. That's another post for sure.
