Zander and I had such a good time with Robyn, Dave, Chase, and Teagan. Zander really had a great time actually playing with Chase and Teagan while they were here. They spent a lot of time chasing each other around the house and making each other laugh. This was the first time that I have really seen them play with each other instead of just next to one another. I feel so lucky that Zander and Grayden will get to grow up with cousins that are so close in age to them.
Surprisingly, we were actually able to do quite a bit while Robyn and Dave were here. I'm still not really sure how we managed with three adults (one in wheelchair) and three kids, but somehow we did it. We went to the Please Touch Museum again as well as Smith's Free Playplace. Robyn and I even ventured out with Zander and Teagan to the Franklin Square Park while Dave and Chase spent the day in Tuckerton (some town with a decoy museum). Robyn was very brave to do this, but we had fun and somehow we made it. Robyn even pushed me in the wheelchair with two kids on my lap about 10 blocks so that we could catch the free shuttle rather than take a taxi home. We also made many trips down to the local ice cream joint and ventured into the city one night for some dinner and shopping.
I can't tell you how nice it was to have my sister and her family here. My sister and I are best friends and we usually spend a lot of time together so it was nice to see her after 6 weeks of being here. Next time,hopefully, we can come back for a sister/mom shopping trip, because its just not as easy to do in a wheelchair and there is plenty of shopping to be done. And as an added bonus, there is no tax here on shoes or clothes.
My kids are so lucky to have such a great Aunt and Uncle!
