We have escaped our house and have joined Lou on an extended long weekend at Mum's house with the whole family.
I can't tell you how nice it is to escape reality for a few days and have the aunts, uncles, cousins and Granny there to help entertain the kids! Entertaining 5 kids indoors (mostly) for a few days is not always an easy feat, but with endless games of hide and seek, drawings of masterpieces (thanks Kate), stomping in muddy puddles, the balancing of cards and mini chairs, hilarious dress ups and trick or treating in every doorway of the house, they did a superb job - thank you!
It has been a welcome relief from the everyday which has been quite the balancing act and particularly exhausting of late. I haven't always been managing to balance it all that well.
This weekend has been a welcome relief.
Thank you family.
