So they went down for nap great. We had our lullaby cd from home and our favorite snugglies. We were in a cabin and had a quiet room. I thought we might actually make it.... WRONG! It came time for bed, we went into our room for some quiet family time. We brushed our teeth and read books and tried to calm down for the day. No dice, They cried for awhile until we finally gave in and decided to take a drive. After awhile on the road they were both out! So we attempted the transfer. Ben did great. Penny woke up but took the rest of her bottle and went back down. Whew.. we are good. I went out on the porch to spend some time with my family. Then the crying starts back up. I try everything, but nothing is working. Ben is still out, but Penny is showing no sign of sleep. So... sadly Will and I decide to drive home... an hour and a half... in the rain... at 10 PM. Ben stayed with Grandma and Grandpa and they reported a good night. Will and Penny and I got a good nights sleep. Then we headed back that morning to spend the day.
That being said everything else was fun! It was great to visit with family and close family friends. But by far the highlight of the weekend was watching the babies play outside. They were able to do what they want and just explore, and with two of them and one of me that doesn't happen often. But what I think everyone loved the most was watching them play in the rain. They had never been in the rain before and they absolutely loved it. They would just walk around and laugh and clap. It was really fun to watch!
