Day at the park, take three!

I LOVED watching the kids use team work to accomplish this.  No one even had to tell them how it worked.  They just sat down and worked at it to figure it out.  Love it!

Jennifer could not stop squealing and laughing while she was swinging so I tried to get it on video, but Madalyn had a lot to say.  So cute :)

Day at the park, take two!

I went on a picture craze I guess!  I didn't realize how many pictures I took!  Oh well, I know you don't mind. :)  So here we go...
This is Joyanna Rae, my best friend's newest addition...Look at all that hair.  
She is 13 weeks here!

 This is Josiah, he is another one of my weekly kiddos. 
He is 7 months old.

 Runnin' a muck!

 Marissa looks like she is having a blast doesn't she :)

 Hanging on tight!

 Loved watching the teamwork, as they all tried to figure out how to make this balance.

 Future fireman?

 "Makin' dirt dust"

And that is how it REALLY works!

 Jennifer swinging!

 I love her so much, she is such a sweetie!

This picture is probably my favorite.  Amanda is truly my best friend.  She has been there for me through the good times and the bad times.  She is always an encouragement to me and always knows exactly what to say to make me feel better.  In the ups and downs over the past year, I'm not sure what I would have done without her.  I'm really dreading Sunday and having to say good bye to her and the kids.  Our pastor told her last night when we were at prayer meeting, after singing, that he thinks the best solution is for her to just move here.  I'm all for that!  I love you Amanda!  Thanks for coming and spending the month with us! :)

After a long day of playing hard!

Day at the park, take one!

For the month of March, my best friend and her three kids came to stay and visit.  We had a blast.  It was a little crazy but surprisingly, not overwhelming.  During the day we had 7 or 8 kids, under the age of 6, 3 dogs, and 3 cats...with 2 adults!  Amazingly enough though, all the kids got along really well!  There was never an odd man out.  Which made our job a whole lot easier!  
Spring decided to come early, so we decided to ask for extra seats for our extra kiddos, and take a picnic lunch to the park.  The kids had a blast and were all ready for nap time when we got home.
(I took extra pictures of my best friends kids, seeing as they are leaving and I won't get to see them for quite a while.  They live in Georgia :(  )
 This is Junior

 And Jennifer


 That is quite the look!

 Here she comes! 
 I tried all day to get a good picture of her smiling with her big dimples.

Love that look!

  One of my extra kiddos during the week. 

 Madalyn was playing telephone with Junior.

Junior had to come see how this actually works! 

Marissa climbing 

 Buddies...Lucas isn't going to be happy next week when he comes and his friend is gone home :(

Everyone needed their picture taken sliding.  LOL

 Jennifer all by herself!

 Stayed tuned for take two tomorrow :)
