Mike returned from his bachelor party in high spirits this morning. I was still grumbling about the time change, but it didn't seem to dampen the festivities too much. It sounds like they had fun. We certainly had fun here. Isaac went to grandpa's to see Harrison and have pizza. Riley had Boo over to play and have pizza. Isaac came home around 7 and retired to his room to "work on his warp drive."
The girls donned princess dresses, watched PBS shows and spun like tops. They cooked, built towers out of blocks and hula hooped. The held hands and ran around. They ate lollipops and sang. They looked at books, they jumped and laughed. They played and played and played. Every once in a while it's nice not to have to share your best friend or worry too much about bed time.
It was a blast. Definitly in the top ten days of her lifetime. After Boo went home there was a bubble bath, jammies and THREE bed time stories. Needless to say she didn't miss Daddy one bit. This morning we ate the left over blueberry muffins and watched Alice in Wonderland. It's been on my mind. God Bless Amazon $1.99 rentals. Then Riley cooked in her princess Belle dress for a bit. After that we put on Disney's Robin Hood, Riley likes Sir Hiss. She painted a pink and yellow picture.
She looked over her shoulder at me from the easel and asked "Mommy is it running and yelling time?" So cute. I responded "Yes, honey I'll go get your shoes." I had just wiped her down and gotten her dressed when Mike came home. She was completely absorbed in playing outside and bearly paused to greet him.
I sent Mike to shower and nap while I wore Riley out a bit more. Then I had Riley pottied, cookie-ed, storyed and down for nap by 12:10. Mike's snoring beside me as I type. I'm so nice. I have alterior motives though. I do want thim to have a recovery period, but we need groceries and wedding beverages. So, we'll be shopping when everyone wakes up. There's a lot to discuss now that we're 9 days away. What a fun night/morning. I think we had as much fun as Mike and the boys.
