An enjoyable Thursday!

We had a great Thursday. First, Papa & Grandma are on their way home from Texas. YAY!!! Aunt Lisa has gotten good reports from the doctors. We are all excited that we will be able to see them tomorrow. I told Papa that we would be sitting on their backstep waiting when they pulled under the carport. :0)

While we were cooking lunch today, Luke had a little tantrum. He was getting tired and wanted some attention. Laura was helping me cook. Andrew was mowing the lawn. Mike was still sleeping. And Luke wanted nothing to do w/ Emi, JJ, and Bekah. He got quiet and when we looked at him, he was asleep on the kitchen floor. We didn't move him.

After Mike left for work, the kids and I went to the Sands' house for some swimming. Oh my goodness, we had a wonderful time. I think Andrew dunked JJ under the water right after they got into the pool. After that, JJ wouldn't get into the pool. He rode on the whale with me holding onto him. I guess he will have to wear his suit w/ the floats built in next time. Laura said he was trying to get on the whale while it was on the side of the pool. But when he couldn't, he got mad and kicked the whale into the water. Bekah relaxed on a float after a little while of sitting on the steps. Luke loved the pool. He floated around in the baby rings for a while, then I held him the rest of the time. After a quick change into dry clothes and a snack, we went back outside. Melissa made more pics of the kids. She has an awesome slideshow on her blog that you can check out. She loaded the kids up with books. I'm not sure why she thinks my kids like books. :0) It's not like they are constantly reading or anything. We headed home a little after 6pm. We didn't get 2 miles away before Bekah and Luke were sound asleep. Too bad the rest of us couldn't crawl up to take a nap.

Everyone has had baths and most of the little ones are asleep.... except Bekah. She is actually telling Laura to go to sleep. Guess she got her power nap and is ready to go. I think I'm going to rest on the couch for a few minutes, then get some cleaning done. Love ya bunches!
