what we did. short verison

A late party for Carolyn, a early party for Katie.  Despite the number of candles.. Carolyn really is 6, and Katie will be 5.  Goofy mom!

Making popcorn was a big hit.  (With the kids and bigger kids.)
We played at the local park.
We had gorgeous weather the first few days.  sunshine and 80's.  So we enjoyed the park and a picnic lunch one day.

We were all able to watch Benjamin play at the local Opery Show.
Boppa and Gma watched the kids for one night, so we got to sneak away for an evening.

So there you have in a nutshell what we did while they were here.  Throw in some playing, laughing, playing, eating, more playing, little more laughing... you get the picture :)

I feel a heart full of love, what a wonderful time you would have all had. Such a nice trip that Jake and Emily could go on. I know their parents will be so happy to have them home, I even miss them just knowing they are so far away.
Love John's expression while watching the popcorn pop!!
All so cute, thanks for sharing a piece of the fun.
