But I didn't need to be because it was great! Sure, the kids trashed the basement (like, seriously), but they were all so darn happy, and I didn't have to break up the usual supply of fights.
They played in the back yard, played in the basement, and even went to the park to play baseball because Harry told everyone ahead of time to bring their mitts. I walked to the park with water and popsicles, and they were so cute! They also loved playing with the water slide-- it kept their attention most of the day.
I made cinnamon rolls from scratch while the kids played at the kitchen table.
