Paul went camping/hiking with a friend this weekend so I'm on my own with the girls. I've never been alone with them overnight, let alone a whole weekend. I decided I should use the opportunity to head up north to visit some friends and family, so that's what we're doing. We'll leave at naptime and make the 1 1/2 hour trip up to my niece's for a playdate with the girls' 2nd cousins, Taylor, 3, and Skyler, 5 months. Then we'll go out to dinner with my mom and a girlfriend or two and then those friends will come to my mom's to play and visit. Tomorrow we will go out to breakfast with my mom, my dad and step-mom (they all get along), and one of the above-mentioned friends. After breakfast, we'll have to come up with something to do for awhile because I don't want to head home until naptime (so they can sleep in the car), so I'm thinking maybe Chuck E. Cheese, since they have one up there and there isn't one close to where we live. I think the girls' would absolutely love it.
It's been crazy around here this morning trying to get ready to go. The girls have been watching waaaay too much TV just to keep them out of my hair. Plus it's really hot so between that and packing and trying to track down friends' phone #'s because my cell phone got wet and isn't working, I am just exhausted. At least I'll soon be in the car with AC.
