Babysitting the Dogs

The past 4 days we were on a mini getaway over to my parents house (6 blocks away).  They went on a wonderful beach vacation to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday.  And while they were off having fun we had fun babysitting their two dogs, Arthur and Lucy. 
Lulu and Mark put together the new Playmobil nativity set my mom just got as a gift from a dear friend.  Thank you Mary! That is what they played with 90% of the time there.
 They also played with puzzles.
 Ila May enjoyed scooting around.  When the dogs would come by she would start talking to them and she would get so excited.
 The kids ate at the kitchen counter a lot.
 They made a fort.
 The dogs even got to play in the fort.
 Ila played in the fort too!
 Since my dad has a movie theater big screen TV we watched some fun movies.  Notice Arthur enjoyed the movies too, he's right in between Levi and Lulu.
 Here is Ila May sitting in Papa's chair.

I'm so glad you made yourself right at Home!
Thank you for taking care of Arthur and Lucy.
We couldn't of gone if you hadn't been there to care for Arthur.
