Emjay and Jasley fit us into their busy weekend schedule and spend the night on Friday. Jeff has to get them back home for an afternoon birthday party and an evening slumber party.
We go on a scavenger hunt.
After eating dinner we share scary stories and shine a flashlight on our faces. We roast marshmallows for S’mores and bury a banana topped with chocolate and mini-marshmallows in aluminum foil on top of the coals. We play Caribou Island and Sorry. Jasley and Pappa Jeff poop out so Emjay and Grandma Laurel finish playing for everyone until everyone wins! We set up all the dominoes and make them fall. The girls turn on every light in our bedroom and snuggle under the covers playing with the tangram puzzle and making pictures from the different shapes. Jeff and I sleep on the fold-out couch wondering why there isn’t a thin matress. Instead, we have to place all the cushions into a make-shift sleeping surface.
The girls wake up to hot chocolate and Pappa Jeff’s special pancakes before leaving to get ready for not one, but two birthday parties!!
