When Daddy's away...Aunties will play!

Last weekend began a 7 day Carribean cruise for Greg and the ROI team and the first long stretch of time with Daddy away since Mia was born. I put out the call for help and Aunties came to the rescue! After a very long and sleepless Friday night, Mia and I caught up on some much needed rest while Aunt Becky and Carson went to the Largo Park "Touch A Truck" event. Carson was in his glory sitting in the driver's seat of a fire engine, garbage truck, rescue vehicles, a motorcycle and more. It was little boy heaven with all of the buttons he could get his hands on.

Aunties Andi, Gayle and Becky swooped in for a short sleepover to help me with the kiddos, get to know baby Mia and of course get really silly. Mia was totally spoiled with lots of rocking, cuddling, and even a massage from Aunt Andi.

True to tradition, a sister sleepover wouldn't be complete without an early Sunday morning trip to the 49er Flea Market. So they packed up Carson and left Mia and I in happy dreamland. Everyone came home with treasures including Carson who worked his Aunties for a toy Hummer truck and jumbo train set which has kept him busy all week. Thank you :-)

Sunday afternoon we were in for a real treat when Auntie Chin (aka Andi) arrived to give us a concert. A special song was dedicated to Mia and her lucious little lips!

This was one of our favorite things to do as kids. How fun to see the tradition carried on!

Glad to hear that the ( Aunties) had a great weekend with the little ones. That little girl is really growing. Ah, she really is a Wilbur, she loves to eat. Maybe she gets that from DAD? We wish all good cheer, just love that glass of wine, right Jessie?
