The Kennedy Clan visited us from South Bend this weekend and our friend Vanessa who lives downtown joined us too – yay! A big thanks to Jordan’s parents for hosting a yummy dinner at their house and the Kennedy’s overnight. (We’ve never tried sleeping 9 people in our 1000 sq ft condo – it probably could have worked, but I think everyone slept better with the extra space.) Speaking of sleep, I begin typing this as Jordan, Natalie and Elliott are 2+ hours into their recovery naps. (I just woke up myself). In 27 hours, the combination of us made 17 trips to the park, 6 trips to the zoo, 2 trips to a museum, 11 trips to a BBQ (Jordan had 3 under his belt), 6 trips to Starbucks, 1 magic show and a few games of dress-up. Whew. These kids – ages 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7 – are busy ones!
Thanks for an awesome visit, Kennedys! A big shout out to Clare, age 2, for keeping me in the know with what my kids are up to – she told her dad who told me where Elliott was and also told me when Natalie had a little #2 in her pants (AH – suggestions here?!?! I’m tired of the lax commitment on her part – I just bribed her with “7 days of always going #2 in the toilet = 1 princess costume from the Disney store”. I hope it works, for many reasons.)
Here are a few of the highlights caught on my phone (Thanks for the awesome visit!):
