It had been a rough few weeks for their little family... the Colin family had seen its fair share of stress. Grammy and Grampy were planning to watch Maddie and Hannah for the week that Brad and Erin (my brother and sister in law) had planned their Alaskan Anniversary cruise. I offered to watch the girls since they desperately NEEDED the trip and it would be a chance for us to hang out with our nieces/cousins! Of course we did! It was fun to take them places they'd never been and don't have up in Montana and let their parents relax and enjoy their wonderful trip!
LOTS and LOTS of sprinkler pool play
Hannah is read to go in for lunch "ooooooh"
The girls LOVED to scream LUUUUUNCH!
Someone was so tired she didn't make it!

The night their parents got home we took them to McDonalds, or as Maddie calls it "Old Macdonalds" ha

See I really did put clothes on them! :) SO MUCH WATER PLAY there was a lot of diaper time!
We took them to a local park and they had a free outside movie. So much fun! Snacks and drinks-- we were set!
Hannah loved it!
Camped out for the movie
One day we took daisie for a walk
Maddie slept in bed with me each night. :)
Macie and Hannah LOVES trying on clothes and shoes
We took the girls to Wheeler Farms. The highlight and all she wanted to do was pet the pony. They had a miniature pony you could pet. Maddie loved it!!! (whenever we asked afterwards what was her favorite part, she said "petting the pony!" :)
She also pet goats and rabbits
We took Maddie to her very own carousel.

When Brad and Erin returned from Alaska, they watched Macie one evening so Lee and I could go out to dinner and a movie! Erin took them out to stomp in rain puddles. Happy girls. :)
