The Adventures Of Our Little Family Of Three

A Visit From the Cousins

My nieces Caroline and Campbell came to stay with us Saturday night, while my sister attended a bachelorette party. This was my first time babysitting three kids (all under the age of 2), and it turned out to be a lot of fun. I was a little worried that they might be a bit much to handle, but Jon helped out and entertained the toddlers while I tended to baby Cambell. ( just love the infant stage...they're so totally depend on you, and are so cuddly and sweet) We fed the kids pizza for dinner, and then took them to the park to run off some energy. With Jon pushing Riley in our single stroller, and me pushing Caroline and Campbell in their double stroller, we received some strange looks from people. (I'm guessing they thought we had twins and a newborn) The kids loved the outside time, despite the hot weather. Jon and I managed to bathe the kids and get all three to bed at 8:30. We were sad to see the girls go the next day, but I think Riley was a little releived, because he wasn't too fond of the idea of sharing his toys with Caroline. Here are some pictures of the kids and their fun...

Apparently it's fun to stand on the toy box and look out the window

Sweet little mischeavous Caroline

Let the fighting ensue...Caroline grabbed Riley's drink

Here's another non-sharing moment...Riley freaked out when Caroline was playing with the car

At this point, Caroline starts going backwards to escape from Riley

Refusing to go down the slide without his drink

She loved the slide

Because going up the slide is as much fun as going down the slide?

Precious Campell loves to swing

One day they'll hate me for taking this one of them...

Jon and I took Riley to the splash pad Sunday evening. It's starting to become a weekly routine, and Riley can't get enough water time.

I hope you all had a great weekend!
