You are so cute! What a fantastic aunt.

Zach and Sarah said...

I'm so excited to use this idea with my kids this summer. Fabulous stuff. I had fun just hearing about it from the kids.

p.s. Becca was worried the kids would have so much fun they wouldn't ever want you to leave. Fortunately for Becca, the kids get to be with us before they get home. They'll be thrilled to go back to their parents:)

Becca said...

Come back! You are officially hired as nanny/chef. When can you start?

Thanks again for everything you guys did. All your readers should know I also came home to a spotlessly clean house! You're amazing!

How fun! Do you work as a nanny for hire? I'm glad Ben and Becca could go have a break; fun times for everyone!
