In-Laws & Out-Laws

At the family reunion in April, I was part of the out-laws and his side of the family were the in-laws.
The in-laws are here now and have been for 4 days.

Day 1
Hubby took off with his dad for the day, scooting him around between different clients, our homeschooling warehouse, and to watch his last indoor soccer game for the year. Hus mum stayed with us, succumbed to jet lag and spent most of the day playing with, reading to and enjoying her grandkids. I had less to do then normal so I was a bit at a loss as to what to do. I am still getting used to it.
Mercedes still had a cold and was grumpy and extra clingy, and I was tired from a restless night of having her in our room and waking up frequently. The boys arrived home about 10pm.

Day 2
Hubby and father-in-law spent a good part of the day planning, and dealing with cubby house preparations. Saturday is a bit fuzzy in my memory but I do know that I was tired due to another bad night with a restless bubs.
Oh yeah, some friends and my mum came over for dinner. I made chickpea samosas.

Day 3
We were out in record time and off to church with a little bit of time before hand. We were early compared to normal. When we got home, lunch was had and then the in-laws took off with a mutual friend for the rest of the afternoon. The kids and I took off to a new friend/neighbours place for a swim in their pool (well the 3 older did).
Dinner was home made meat pie and pizza with sweet potato mash. Yum!

Day 4 (Today)
Was a busy day. I am sure it took me half of the day to just get moving. I really need to stop these late nights!
Lunch was at a mutual friends house. It was great. The friends are lovely people and always inviting. Eventually I played the baddy and made us all go home as I had to prepare for tonight. Tonight was our shared meal. I made chicken and corn rolls and chicken nuggets.
The boys started on the cubby house building and built a good part of the frame. They wanted me to take photos but I was being a stubborn Kerr and said no. No pictures...

Distraction - hubby is talking on Skype to a possible client(?) and the guy has an Italian accent, he is in Italy, I think!

Ok, I am pooped but an yet to be the mouse in the wheel that goes no where (exercise bike) and read.

Oh, our camera works well but I haven't really had much of a chance to play with it yet.
