We have some friends that need a lot of work done on their yard (it is huge!!!) and since we also always have projects that need to be done, but never get done, we set up a work exchange. We work at their house one day and then the next time they work at our house. The theory is one parent can take care of the kids and the other 3 can work. It worked REALLY well.
The kids had lots of fun.
The garden got ready.
I got to watch the kids! (this was hard hee hee.) I laid in the sun and watched the kids;)
In my defence I did make sure that we all had food most of the day.
In the afternoon it rained so we came inside the kids watched a movie and colored and I got to teach our friends bridge!! I have been looking for another couple to play bridge with FOREVER! I sure hope they had fun so we can play again. (OK I am a geek to love bridge, but it is fun).
