It finally feels like summer, and we have been taking advantage of it. Last weekend we got to babysit Emmie while Caroline and Jared went to a party. I adore babies, and Emmie was so sweet, but getting up with her at 5:30 in the morning made me happy we weren't in the baby stage anymore. It was so nice to be able to spend some time with her though, and I'm sure she had a good time watching our crazy family. The kids were all great helpers while she was here. Atticus is still talking about Baby Emmie. Viva of course enjoyed all of the extra attention from her.
Andy left shortly after we got home for his conference in Washington D.C. Luckily for me Briley's game got cancelled that night so that was one less thing I had to do. Monday Baylor started summer school, and he loved it. Such a relief since we will be going for the next three weeks. We also had practice, went swimming, and made a trip to the Arboretum one day while he was gone.
The Arboretum had an enchanted forest that was really neat to walk through. I think it could make for some really cute pictures if I had them dressed a little cuter than they were. They put so much detail into it, and it has new things that have been added since last year. The kids were pretty upset they didn't find a fairy to catch so we will have to try again another day.
