It's 9:30 and the house is quiet and still. Last night Sean took the two older boys and wee little Ella up to the cabin for a camp out with a good friend and his son.
They had a great time, tramping through the woods, eating Papa made food, and getting stuck with the truck in spring mud. I think we did that once before almost exactly a year ago?
While they were stuck, we partied on here bridal shower style for my younger sister Katie with Chase and Ella and lots of Katie's friends. It was a gorgeous 80-something day!
Meanwhile, up north, the same retired NYPD pulled Sean out with his vintage tractor. I think I owe that man a plate of cookies.
The kids came home covered in mud from hair to toes, tired and smiling all the while. Baths, dinner, and a slight breakdown into tears signaled time for bed.
So now the house is quiet. I've a babe to nurse before bed and a beautiful day of rest tomorrow, which I am greatly looking forward to. Aren't you?
