Fun places + tireless Grandmas

Never fear....the super grandmas are here! Seriously, they were amazing. My grandma did dishes non-stop, they folded laundry, fed babies, chased kiddos at all sorts of activities, bought us groceries, dinner, lunches & entertainment, and played for hours. What a blessing it was to have them here, I know they left exhausted! But they claimed they loved it, so I will choose to believe them. :) So thankful we had a few days of warm weather.
Walking on the North Shore.
 I happen to be doing a promo for the Barry Manilow concert and had tickets for a night they were here. We had a fun girls night out! And super daddy managed to put all 5 down for bed, extra ice cream for him. :)
 I was also doing a promo for a local place, Jump!Zone, which has tons of amazing bounce things & slides. Let's just say Eden was doing the tall slides before Graham was. :)
 And then it was on to the Grandmas treat, a favorite (especially of my mom) - the Zoo! It was cheaper to buy a one year membership than to pay for a day's admission for all of us. Lucky day for us, and some future happy kiddos as well!

Anyone who knows Eden, knows getting one of these backpacks was inevitable. (i.e. losing her at church last Sunday with the back door open. We should really keep it on at all times. :) She was thankfully found in a bathroom, happily washing her hands. Crazy girl.) N wanted to keep track of her for a while. This was right before she fell and got a fat lip on a rock. She makes it her goal to bleed once a day, I think.
  My grandma spent hours pushing the stroller! And can I just say...our baby girl spent about 5 hours riding in the stroller without a single peep. She is seriously the best baby ever. The plan was for her to nap. Which she did not. But smile & coo & ride contentedly? I'll take it. :)
  Typical of Eden....walking up to something and immediately poking it in the eye. Glad he was made of metal. :) And the slides....she watches what kids twice her size are doing and then imitates. They had so much fun on these slides, went down on their bellies again & again!
Finishing the day with some dippin' dots. What a beautiful day we had!
Our last night we celebrated my mom's birthday coming up in a few days...which is not 38 (wink, wink.) My mom was worried about her hair for the pic, but I said I'm already in my pj's anyways! Grandma decided we were going for the "we just chased 5 kids around all day" look.
We packed a lot into a few days, but so thankful for the respite this was for me during a busy season.
