the DREAM team

As my previous post rehashed Jake & my amazing trip to Mexico, I also MUST document the dream team.  While we were relaxing, resting, and being spoiled in Mexico, our kids were having a blast with Grandma and Great Aunt Ronda.

My mom and my Aunt Ronda, took time off of work, flew to Wilmington, and spent THEIR vacation caring for OUR four kids. When I initially told my Mom that Jake was invited on the trip, she told me to let her know the dates ASAP and she would see if she could come. She & Ronda rearranged work and life to come. This was a huge blessing!

Auntie Em & Blake came up for Easter

Ice cream at Lewis Farms

As time has passed, we continue to hear of all the fun the kids had with Grandma and Aunt Ronda. Many trips to various parks around town, ice cream at Lewis Farms, Power of Play, lots of walks, a donut date, Grandma playing the piano and everyone singing, playing games, doing Great Aunt Ronda's hair in pig tails, reading through The Trumpeter Swan with Grandma, painting and many more crafts.

THANK YOU, does not seem adequate for how much we appreciate their willingness to come and each of their generosity with their time and energy.  Any parents (especially of littles), who live far way from family KNOWS how hard it can be to find childcare just for a date night, let alone for an entire week.  Jake and I were able to relax and really enjoy the time away because we knew the kids were being loved and well cared for. THANK YOU and we love you Mom and Ronda!
