The kids did have a blast, though. Their favorite part seemed to be the animals. All Avery wanted to do was sit and look at the piggies, and Caden loved the chickens. Cece, of course, only wanted to play in the dirt. The girls wouldn't ride any rides, but Caden went around and around a little car ride, grinning the entire time, but then trowing a giant tantrum as soon as we said he'd had enough. He looked as if he was going to either throw up or fall asleep if he didn't stand on steady ground for a little bit!
My parents took the twins home afterwards for a sleepover at their house, and Carl and I went home with only one child. A very sleepy child, I should add. I went to work, and after a nap, Carl and Cece went to see Wall-E. She sat with her blankey on his lap and ate popcorn and drank soda, happy as could be. She did surprisingly well, and when I came home around midnight, they were both sound asleep in the recliner. She didn't want to sleep in her bedroom without her brother and sister... so cute!
I woke up this morning, shocked to look at the clock and discover it was 9:30. I haven't slept that late in AGES! It was more wonderful than I can describe. I got up, had my coffee, called to check and see how my other babies were doing, read some blogs, and realized that Cece still wasn't stirring. I became a little worried, so I went to check on her. She was still sound asleep in her bed, sucking her thumb with her little bum in the air. So as of right now, it's 11:17 and she is STILL IN BED. SLEEPING. I have had a wonderful sleep-in, and two hours of blissful child-free blog reading. What a treat. I feel ready to really get some housework done!
It's supposed to be hot again, 100 or so, and I am hoping we get to the lake later today to cool off. I can't believe August is over halfway gone already...
