Here's what we did though!
Day 5~ Hot chocolate with marshmallows after a football game.
Day 6~ Breakfast date at Grandma's house.
Day 7~ Reading time in Mommy and Daddy's room before bed.
Day 8~ Tea party, complete with fancy dresses and shortbread cookies.
Day 9~ We laid out on blanket in the yard before bed where we saw deer, listened to crickets and watched the bats fly around.
Day 10~ The girls and I watched YouTube favorites together because Daddy was on patrol. Lydia and Bethany's top picks: laughing babies and Christian the lion.
Day 11~ Peaches and cream!
Day 12~ Lydia got to go with Daddy to the dump ( pretty exciting stuff!) and Bethany and Mommy went to our little store for a treat.
Day 13~ We built a fort in the living room with the couches, pillows and sheets.
Day 14~ An ice cream picnic in the sunshine.
Day 15~ The girls prepared a breakfast casserole for Daddy almost entirely by themselves.
Day 16~ Made a bed on the floor for a "slumber party".
As you can see, some were more or less exciting or last minute. It was a wonderful time for me as a mommy to seek for ways to bless my children and also for my girls to learn some lessons in being thankful and looking for ways to encourage those around them. It was tons of fun, and I hope some day to successfully do it again!
