Parents for the Weekend

3 AM feedings...little to no sleep...hundreds of diapers...whiny kids...

Okay, so it wasn't exactly that kind of parenting. Nope, it was the fun kind! (With well-behaved, adorable children whose parents came home after we had only spent about 28 hours with them!)

Wow, what a weekend!

Two fun and important things took place this weekend:
1. Marcus's sister, Becca, graduated from Trinity! CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS, BEC!
2. Our friends, Peter and Erica, were out of town for a wedding, so we got to watch their three fabulous kiddos!

Put it altogether, and what do you get? Lots of family and lots of fun!

Selah and our niece Katie had fun together. The older kids also had a lot of fun. They got to play, watch movies, and hang out together while the adults could get all caught up. It's always fun to see family.

Marcus's brother and sister-in-law, Scott and Robin, had their black belt test for TaekwonDo. It was so great to see. They've been working hard. Needless to say, the kids LOVED the board-breaking and everything else. Let's hope they don't try it at home...

Below are my fave pics of each of the Hang kids from the weekend. They are just precious! ...not to mention hams in front of a camera! :)

I found this collage maker thing by Picasa and wanted to try it you can see more of what our weekend entailed. (You may notice Selah wearing the dress I made for our niece, Katie...well, turns out it was too small for her, so I passed it on to the next little lady I knew.)

This might go without saying, but this afternoon after Peter and Erica came home, Marcus and I went home and both laid down for a much needed nap! Marcus has been fighting off a cold and was such a trooper this weekend. We had a lot of fun, but were definitely tired. As we laid down for a nap, we discussed:
M: How long should we nap?
A: Forever.
M: That doesn't even make sense.
A: You're right. I guess that'd be sleeping, not napping.
M: No, that'd be death.

Thanks for letting us watch your wonderful kids! :) You know they hold a special place in our hearts.
