So this last weekend Cassidy, Corinne, and Kai went to Big Bear with Grandma and Grandpa. They got back yesterday evening, worn out, burnt, and a scrubby as can be, but it was more than worth it's weight in gold! Not only for the kids, but for Richard and I too. Richard and I not only had an entire weekend kid free, but Richard didn't have to work at all, and we were able to spend our entire kid free weekend with just each other! WOW! Needless to say it was amazing! We so enjoyed spending the time with each other, SLEEPING IN, (at least on his end) and not worrying about bottles, diapers, naps, practices, bills, NOTHING! It was a true gift, especially with baby #4 coming in about 3 weeks or so. Who knows the next time will be when we are kid free, but we will always have this past weekend...
The kids had a blast too! They got to go to the mountains, like they have been wanting too, and as an added bonus the snow was still there! They played in the snow constantly! Except for Kai that is, apparently he didn't like any part of the snow. The girls had a blast though. They went inner-tubing, tobogoning, had snowball fights, and all other sorts of fun. They even brought home snow from the mountains in the cooler, and were lying in wait for Richard and I outside of my parents house last night when it was time to go. As soon as we got out of the house we were bombarded with snowballs, and let me tell you, Cassidy has good aim! Kai even joined in on the fun last night in front of my parents house, and was feeding me snow.
Oh and id I mention, that Cassidy has lost not only one but BOTH of her front teeth? Richard worked only Thursday, and Friday last week, and was home with us the rest of the time with us. (Praise the Lord!) So last Tuesday we took the girls to Disneyland, and before we even made it to the gates her remaining front tooth was barely hanging in there. (pun intended) So Mommy, being the ever cruel and less sympathetic parent than Daddy, got a napkin and ripped it out. (With all of the drama of course, Cassidy screaming and crying...) But it came out the first good tug. So now Cassidy has a big gaping whole in the front of her mouth, and boy does it look strange!
I will post pics as soon as I have them available!!
