Sleepover at Uncles and Manda's

Saturday, November 13, 2010
Once a month we have a sleepover with some of our favorite kids (Kevin's nieces and nephews and my little brother Jonah).  This month we had Presleigh and Ryder over and had lots of fun. 

Here's what we did:  Went on the roof to check out the view of downtown, chased each other around in the shopping carts in the basement of our condo building, ran up all six flights of stairs, played seven rounds of hide-and-go-seek, watched Toy Story 3 while eating popcorn and cookies, tucked the kids into bed in an air matress in our room, woke up at 6:00 a.m., got everyone dressed, made waffles, had a dance party, walked down to the slides in the Old Market, got some hot chocolate at the Omaha Visitors Center, feed the ducks at the ConAgra lake, talked to 911 when Ryder pressed the emergency button in the elevator (oops!), returned them safely to their parents, and then took a long nap :)  How do parents do this full time?  Lots of caffeine?

Couldn't resist taking lots of pictures and video.  They are just so darn cute! 

We were really happy with all of the fun things we found to do with the kids without having to drive anywhere.  We love living downtown because of all the activity down here, but weren't sure how much there'd be for kids.  You don't really think of downtown as very kid-friendly, but we found lots of fun stuff to do, and best of all most of it was free.  Maybe our future kids will be little condo dwellers?  :)
