Thank you, Abby and Jamie!

Abby and Jamie and Milo and Pearl deserve some sort of prize for hosting such a fun weekend for my kids.

What kid wouldn't love:

a hike in the mountains
campfire complete with hot dogs and s'mores
scary ghost stories
movie about super heroes
campout on the living room floor
delicious breakfast of pancakes (hold the blueberries) and bacon and hash browns
board games with cool friends
go-carting (in the snow!)

Fun times, fun times!

What parent wouldn't love:

a kids-free weekend night
sleeping in until 8:30 on Saturday morning
knowing that there are people in the world who are dedicated to loving and having fun with your kids

I've been telling people about the boys' fun weekend. Sounds like a tradition in the making!

Nate said...

There aren't many things as valuable to parents as people who really love your kids.

(The only thing I can think of that might be better is people who are willing to take them away from you for awhile:) What great friends!

Abby said...

Glad they had fun (and you guys too)!

Hope Aaron doesn't have nightmares for a year about hook-handed Suzie McSue. (That was the story.)

You are sweet.

I've said it before, and I'm sorry to all the other candidates, but Jamie is the favorite uncle. Doesn't mean the rest of you aren't in the running, but it's going to be hard to win their votes away now.

Emily said...

To Neil, Ryan, Austin, Mark, Travis, Richard, Ben and Brian -- they love you, too! Seriously.

Abby, Suzie McSue wasn't scary. It was the "BOO!" effect that Jamie added that freaked Aaron out. It's all good.

Nate, well said.

Amyegodfrey, when do we get to see you next?

Austin said...

I'm going to have to just cut my losses and try for "Best Uncle" title in the other siblings' jurisdiction.
