You Take the Good, You take the bad...

Yesterday morning it felt like there was a little ray of sunshine shining right down on us. The kids and I had a playdate with Mrs. M and her wee lads. The sun was shining, the music was playing in the car on the way there, children were peaceful and calm. The kids played together quite well (as 3 toddlers can), no one got hurt or even had a time out. The mom's got to visit and have grown up conversation. It was like a mini vacation in the insanity that is our lives. And trust me, it is insane. A lot.

Fast forward to today. We picked up Auntie Shishi and headed out for a fun morning at Riley Park. Beautiful sunny Saturday morning. It wasn't too busy, the water was perfect. All seemed well. Alas, the jungle monkeys were back. The boys acted like they'd been caged up for weeks and were making the most of their newfound freedom. So, it seems they had a very fun time, and Auntie Shishi and I are exhausted!

Grown- ups: 1 (yesterday)
Toddlers: 1 (today)

We had a wonderful time too! Definately a do-again. Maybe next time W won't be so excited and try to wrestle poor Bee. Yikes! Sorry about that.
Isn't it the best to have Auntie Shishi?! Yay for Auntie SHishi.
