4 BOYS

For the next 3 days I will be watching 4 boys, triplets that just turned 8 and their little brother who is 5. I think we will either be heading to the waterpark or the children's museum one of the days. Maybe a movie...that might be a better idea since they all tend to head off in different directions at the children's museum and I don't like to be to be that girl that walks around yelling the kids names like I've lost them. That happened the first time. When I finally found Riley, he was at the face painting table....he painted his entire face as you can see in the picture below. He is the one in blue with a multicolored face. I took them to McDonalds after the museum where they thought it would be funny to dare each other to makeout with Ronald while I ordered the food. Seriously!?! LOL! We were at a McDonalds in a skyway with people everywhere, watching these boys makeout with Ronald.....After that days events I decided to keep them at home the rest of the weekend. They are so well behaved at home and keep themselves entertained. They only needed me to be at their beckon call in the kitchen. Heaven forbid they go more than an hour without a snack or a meal. I'm also hoping this time the smoke detector doesn't go off...which in turn sets off the security alarm and dispatches a police man over to confirm there is no fire...oh yes the alarm will continue to go off until you type in the security code! Helps if you have that! I will never forget their code after that episode. The detector only went off because some tiny piece of food from a previous baking was on the bottom of the oven and it was smoking like crazy...so hey at least it wasn't my fault ;)



Not to stray too far from Thankful Thursday....I'm very thankful I have this family in my life. The boys are good kids and I love their parents. Their mom is the sweetest little lady ever, I still can't figure out how her 90 pound body carried triplets.
The boy's parents are off to LA to celebrate their anniversary.
I probably won't do any posts but I'll be reading everyone else's!! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Wow you're going to be busy!! I hope you are able to find fun things to do, my Robbie is 7 and a half and I have a hard time finding things to entertain him with. I figure it is because I have been a nanny of babies for so long that my ideas and activities are geared towards the little ones--who knows!

Have fun while their parents are away; I had the boys the first week of May for their parent's 10th anniversary trip to Key West and we had a blast!

Thanks for stopping by.

We just had my nephew for a week, he is 8 almost 9. Mom took him out on the boat and let him tube. He loved it. Good luck with the boys.

Ashlee said...

Have fun with the boys! I think you are gonna need some girly time after this weekend! :) Oh! Good Luck with Skinny B. It looks tough, but I think you can do it! :) Going Veggie, if you do decide to do it, is tough but you just get use to it. Pretty soon, meat wont even taste good anymore. xoxo

PS. Love the new profile pic, gorgeous girl :)

Lynn said...

You are a brave soul! Thanks for your sweet comment!!

Aimee said...

I hope you have fun with them! At that age my son loved trains, video games and anything messy.
That's good that they are well behaved for you at home. Going out would be tough trying to watch 4. My son will be 15 on Monday, so he's easy, but when I go out with my 5 year old Daughter and my friends and their kids, we're looking 10 different ways as they all take off.
An indoor play place is always a good idea. They are gated so the kids can't get out.

Thanks for stopping by my Blog! You are beautiful as well...

Have a great weekend,
Aimee

here we go again said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and your nice words and prayers. I will definitely check out Kelly's blog.
Oh and don't worry about the "rules". That's more for some people that can't seem to understand after I have explained at least 15 times! lol

Last but not least. I'm thankful for my family and the amazing life that I have.

Bec said...
