The Bolling Bunch - Day 2

Here's a sneak peak into day two of the Bolling Bunch project. Things are still running smoothly, but I am pretty exhausted. I blame most of that on myself. I am not being disciplined enough to make myself go to bed when the kids do. I think it's because I don't want my entire day to be spent with kids and then go straight to be. I need quiet, relaxing, and brainless activity.

The morning started off a tad iffy. The kids didn't eat their breakfast great at all. I refused to cook another meal, so they were a tad cranky because they were hungry, but I'm not a short order cook.

After cleaning up from breakfast we headed upstairs to get ready to go to the South Salem park. It was there that we met the Harris family. The weather here has been so HOT that the kids were not really interested in enjoying all the amenities the park has to offer, but we still stayed about 1. 5 hours.

Lunch was prepared and devoured. I guess that's what happens when you don't eat your breakfast. At Gianna's request we had corn dogs. I bought them on a whim, for my kids, as a special treat and I was thrilled to find out that there were exactly 6 in the box (one per kid). I also served baked beans and fruit.

Ty left for "Extreme Recess" camp and the 5 other kids napped for 3 hours. Another successful day!!! I got 3 loads of laundry down and put away. After the kids woke up, Gianna set the table again, the kids played in the basement, and I cooked tacos, black beans, rice, and apple slices. It left a HUGE mess in our kitchen. The shredded cheese was EVERYWHERE. Darren and I cleaned it up while "G" took the kids outside to play in the sprinkler. Then we took the kids to get a Hawaiian Ice. They LOVED it. It was the most quiet they have been ALLLL day. After arriving home, we did baths and BED!

Until tomorrow......
