Now that Lily is attending school every day, it's harder to find the time to get together. This week is school vacation and she got to sleep over. The girls had a blast. We celebrated the nice weather with the first ice cream cone of the season. I didn't think an ice-cream-cone-eating tutorial was necessary, but regretted that after both Lily and Kenzie got their cones and immediately ate the bottoms off. Doh!
After bath time, Kaia, the entertainer, went to bed (in hopes that she would be asleep before the big girls). While they waited for Kaia to fall asleep Kenzie and Lily "read" Go Dog Go together.
Finally, when I was sure Kaia was asleep, the girls went upstairs. Sometimes being quiet is really hard for toddlers (go figure) and it wasn't long before Kaia was up and running again. After about twenty minutes of Kaia singing various songs (Row Row Row, Twinkle Twinkle, Ring Around the Rosy, and more) and instigating the others..."Lily! Wake up Lily!" I decided to get her out. Lily was thankful for Kaia's departure. She said, "good, 'cause I can't sleep with all that talking." Ha!
So much cousin fun. Now all three girls are spent and need a couple days of rest to recuperate. Who knew bubbles and sandboxes could be so exhausting?
