Day 3

6:20am Babies up and ready to go

8am Play outside with kiddie cars and riding toys....kids get bored after 7.5 minutes

9:30am Put boys in swim suits and fill up wading pool on back patio. Genius idea to put the little slide into the pool. Boys love it.

10:00am Calvin poops in swim trunks. Come back inside and put boys back in play clothes.

12:15pm Boys go down for a 3 hour nap (woo hoo!!)

5:30pm Head to RCC For Mexican Fiesta dinner. Todd helped us get unloaded, and then he went on to the CSF Summer Study. Important lessons learned:
  1. Don't forget to bring a change of clothes when you go out with toddlers
  2. Your 7 year old doesn't really know how to put a diaper on a kid that won't leak everywhere
  3. 14 hands are better than 2 when it comes to feeding/changing/corraling two adorable little men

7:30pm Get home from RCC. Boys go right to bed without a squeak. Dog pooped on the floor again. Did they tell us to crate him? I might do it next time we leave.

8:00pm 1/2 of the Bortmess family comes to watch Project Runway....what fun!!

I think I'm getting the hang of this!!

Still exhausted. The B's are my heroes!!

Hi Todd and Gretchen - I just wanted to tell you how great the picture at the top of your website is. I am also enjoying reading about your regular adventures on your blog. But that picture up there is perfect. :)

You guys are troopers! Well, that is one way to prep yourselves for life with a toddler again (times 2).
