Day Out for the Adults

Last Saturday was our first family day out; without the babies.  My family loves to have fun and we still do with all the kids now, but we had been looking forward to an afternoon with some adult activities.  

My parents were in town for the weekend because they were being recognized for their excellence in agriculture by the university in my town.  We always joke with my dad about his love to hold the tired babies so he can nap too; and Howie already knows when its nap time to ask for grandpa.  But he is the hardest working guy I know and he runs a farm with his uncle and cousin to provide (some would say spoil) for us.  And we can't forget my mom who has packed lunches, made meals, drove truck, given rides and so much more to help that farm run. It was pretty neat that they were one of the farms recognized in our state.

As part of this honor, they got tickets to the college football game.   We decided to get babysitters (3 of them) and enjoy an afternoon out.  We had a great time with lots of laughs, a few drinks, tailgating, and a football game.  The kids did great with the babysitters and I'm sure we'll do it again some day.  We love these babies more than anything, but I think it's important to still have that time as a family without the kiddos too.

Mom and dad still spoil us by buying all our football tickets and paying the babysitters.  It's not cheap to get 3 babysitters for 6 hours for 4 babies and a toddler either!  Thanks for a great day mom and dad!  We finished the weekend with the twins baptism on Sunday.  A perfect weekend with lots of memories.

"Just go have fun, I'll be fine."

"The babysitters will probably be more fun anyway."

"We'll behave, don't worry."

Momma's day out!

Best farmers, parents, and grandparents!
