I didn't detail out our entire day Saturday but let's just say that it was chock full of activity. I then went over to a friend's house to have dinner with a small group of friends. Unfortunately, because I knew that my kids would be awake at the crack of dawn, I had to leave somewhat early so that I could be home and in bed well before 11:00.
As predicted, the girls started waking up at 5:45 Sunday morning. (And yes, they do have room darkening shades under the curtains in their rooms.) Because Rich napped Saturday morning, I napped Sunday morning. Ah, sweet uninterrupted sleep.
We left the house around 11:00 to participate in a walk to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Rich's niece passed away from the disease at the age of 13 and Rich is a genetic carrier of CF. Our girls have a 50% chance of being carriers of the CF gene.
This is what happens when you wake up at 5:45 in the morning.
Look at how big the girls are in the jogging stroller.
What you can't see behind me is the walking team, who apparently are frightening. Even though the girls know most of them. Who are are family!
We didn't walk the entire six miles because it probably would have taken 3 hours due to the crowds. The girls walked for a little bit but once we hit main streets, where we had to walk on the sidewalks, we made them ride in the stroller. There were just too many people and the streets weren't blocked off to traffic.
After we walked, we hung out for a bit and ate lunch.

We headed home where we had an hour and a half break (laundry) before we had to leave for a gymnastics birthday party. Although the birthday girl is in Allie's class, her mom invited Anna and Emily too which was very thoughtful.
The girls slept solid that night. Wear. Them. Out.
