Wanna know what makes my Monday???!!!
Dakota mastering the art of kite flying!!
The kids sleeping in their new beds..their new bunk beds!! That's right...the bunk beds came in yesterday...we weren't even expecting them until Wednesday...so we were surprised!
Saturday morning was spent going out to the lake and flying kites....On the side of the lake near the dam, there is a clearing...that is where we flew the kites while Jed dropped a few lines. No fish caught...but we still had fun. Kota seemed to get really good at flying his kite. And we found out that Lily really likes to "reel in" the fishing line.
Dakota...intent on flying his kite!
He got it up there....he loved flying his kite
The rest of the afternoon was spent putting the bunk beds together. Can you believe that almost every screw required an Allen wrench? I have seen baby cribs put together using an Allen wrench, but never a bunk bed set.
It was slow going..but we got it all put together
I was so excited to get the bunk beds...that while Jed was putting them together, I was taking down Lily's crib. Never did I think about Time Change (Daylight Savings Time...the whole spring forward an hour)....I was just excited about the new beds. And never did I think about this being Lily's 1st night in a big girl bed with no confinements. I seriously thought that Lily would crawl into her bed (after our day outside) tired from playing and go right to sleep. Never did I think that she would climb up and down the steps to see what her brother was doing..or that she would pull out all the toys...just to play...because she could. She exercised her new freedom...It was right after midnight before she finally closed her eyes. I guess the excitement of FREEDOM was a bit too much for her to handle.
Bedtime tonight went a bit smoother. The kids still played around...crawling up and down the stairs to see who was doing what...and played around for a bit. Numerous times we would walk back in their room and remind them to "get back in bed!" This time, their little eye lids shut around 10:30pm....woohoo!! I am hoping that by the time their Aunt Tammie comes for her visit...that they will be back to their usually bedtime! I can hope, can't I?!
