We had such a great weekend celebration for Labor Day this year. On Saturday and Sunday we hung out at home with our cousins visiting from England and it was glorious. On Monday, we took the boys to a local Labor Day carnival and they had a ball. We were a bit nervous about taking all he kids out by ourselves but I am so glad we did because they had a ball and the outing was a great success.
You guys, 4 kids is hard work and taking those said 4 kids anywhere is like herding cats. This was the first time we took all 4 kids anywhere by ourselves. It always takes over an hour just to get ready and getting in and out of the car is like pulling teeth. I know it will get better and frankly I am a glass full kind of person so I will always focus on the positive of any situation but man, managing 4 young kids is a daunting task. I am glad that I have an awesome partner who does not get fazed :). We got this 4 kids business, can't wait to have a great routine going.
Before we left for the carnival, we bribed our biggest boy Tman and told him that if we had any issues we would leave right away but if everything went well they would all be getting cotton candy :). You guys, a promise of candy is always a sure bet; my kids might not have any teeth left in a few years but we will survive these hard years.
Tman was so well behaved which translated into his brothers being well behaved too, bribery works every time. The boys had a ball while Emilia slept the entire time.
We of course got a family picture as soon as we got there. I love my family and I am excited for all the adventures that await us
