The Burrows Spend the Night!

Last night, the Burrows came over. While Shaun and Emily went out to eat, Michael and I took Andrew, Ashley, and Kaley to Chuck E Cheese. First thought on the way - Man, it is hard to do those car seats! It tooks us about 15 minutes just getting into the car. We make it to Chuck E Cheese and the kids behave wonderfully. We ate first and then we played! The kids had a real good time and won prizes.

On our way back, we stop by the grocery store to pick up a few items. Michael drops me off and I go in so we don't have to do that whole car seat thing. When I exit the store, I see all of the kids in the car and Michael locked out! How did that happen? I leave them alone for five minutes...

When we arrive back to the house, we start decorating pumpkins! The kids took markers and drew all over their pumpkins (Andrew's is a gray pumpkin).






Everyone spends the night and things go well. In the morning, we're surprised to see all sorts of emergency vehicles outside our house. Our neighbors had a fire. Everyone is okay and it is a source of excitement for us (or me anyway).

 



We played basketball and air hockey today. Ashley and Andrew have soccer games today and are excited about that.

I'm always impressed by the Burrow kids because they are so well behaved. The night was a lot of fun and I hope we can do it again soon!

I'm glad you found my blog, too! Sounds like I'm not the only one experiencing life with young kids right now!
