3 children asleep by 9:00. Isaac and Elly asleep at 8:00 and then Beckam down.
And the recipe for success:
play all day long the day before...mostly swimming,
then a late movie to end at midnight
wake up next day at 8:00 a.m. (early for us)
play again...swimming til 5:00
Isaac asleep on the way home
Elly so tired has to be carried into bed
Then Gabe tries to fix his bike, no go bigger problem than he thought,
puts together Issac's bike
then plop on the couch to watch a show, Bryn already doing it
There you have it Peace and Quiet by 9:00 p.m.
Another great 4th of July party this year. Always yummy food and great entertainment.
And I love how Elyse always brings her princess tent. I wonder at what age it will stop.
