babysitting

I'm "babysitting" for a couple of days. Wait. Scratch that. Three little boys are babysitting my kiddos for a couple of days. Seriously. It's great. Kolby hasn't said to me once today, "Mom, I don't know what I should do, so what should I do?" I have had a wonderful, glorious, heavenly break from that sentence today because cousins are here and we're having so much fun while their parents vacation in Australia. This morning the boys had finished with the slip and slide by 10am. Now they're busy building legos and playing Star Wars, and I'm playing on my computer. How fun! We're all on vacation!! My goal was to be able to tell the twins apart, but so far I'm not having any luck. I was a tiny bit consoled, however, when I asked Nik (or was it Nate?) who was in these water pictures, and he couldn't tell me. My other goal is to capture a picture of Noah smiling...we're still working on that one :) He's actually been really happy, especially after we finally found something he will eat...cinnamon toast! But he doesn't seem to like smiling for my camera. Maybe it's because it's in his face so much, but he's just so cute, I can't help myself! My older boys have had all their friends over today. They see the twins as their own personal show and tell, and Nic and Nate seem content to tease us all about who is who. (How am I ever going to learn!?)

What BEAUTIFUL pics! I feel a layout in sunflower, breeze (so sad he and kiwi are gone) and moonstruck coming on!

How nice to have some help....summers can be fun and yet boring for the kids...they liked to be entertained 100% of the time. Sounds like your guys are having fun. Good luck with the twins...my friend has twins and I can't tell them apart either.
