This past Friday, June 10 was Elaine's and my 38th anniversary. It was also the anniversary of our daughter Sarah and her husband David, so we volunteered to babysit their boys, four-year-old Sam and two-year-old Eli.
The night started off well with Sam and Eli being very enthusiastic about dinner - their stuffed cheeks in the picture below indicate thusly.
Next on the agenda was a rousing game of hide-and-go-seek. Neither boy has all the basics of the game yet as Sam always hides in his room and always shouts out where he is. On the other hand, Eli just hides, no matter if he is supposed to be looking for me or actually hiding. The pictures below show the boys counting, they are good at that skill and hiding, both, strangely enough, hiding in the same box in the middle of the floor in, of course, Sam's room.
We then finished the evening with baths (my pants were sopping wet when this activity was finished) and story time, Elaine reading to Eli and I reading to Sam, then putting our respective young men to bed.
Although Elaine and I did not have a romantic night out, we wouldn't have changed places with anyone. It was a wonderful anniversary.
