I say privilege and I mean it with all my heart. While it was a long 3 1/2 days and I was EXHAUSTED Sunday evening when they pulled out of the driveway, it's not every day that we get to spend time with those little guys and they're growing up so fast. I hope we made memories last week that will last all of us a lifetime.
We had great 5 and 3 year old conversation, saw what made those little guys tick and got in some good practice for what life will be like for us one day when we have children of our own. Keeping William and Christopher made us think hard about the way we will actually react to challenges and not just how we theorize things will flow when there are pitter patters of little feet at our house.
Those few days of getting to love on our nephews were priceless!
As I have said many times before, picture taking is not my forte but I tried extra hard to record our time together! Here are the pics!
|The playroom was christened with some serious block play. The boys spent hours building ships, fortresses and swimming pools|
|Out for a scooter ride on the trail with a little break to experience the creek. The next day while Faith and Steve were still with us, the boys had great fun playing in the creek!|
Back to the Playroom
|Park time! We met Mary Cervantez and Sophia at the park. William LOVED climbing!|
|Christopher was a little concerned about the kids who came to play. He did not want them to get in his way so he was telling me that they should be careful!|
|Bathtime! William and Genna unexpectedly became best friends. It was so sweet to watch their relationship develop and gave us hope that Genna just might like our kids one day.|
