What do you do with 5 bored, tired kids?

Get them together to amuse each other, of course!

So, it was Friday afternoon and Kristi and I were both winding down after a long (long!) morning of shopping. My kids had been home with a babysitter all day and were climbing the walls (so to speak). Kristi's boys had been home with her hubby or out shopping and at lunch and were definitely ready for a change of scenery. So they came over.

It's always fun to watch my girls play with other kids. And they generally play really well together with Kristi's boys - they've known each other all of their lives, which helps too.  Seeing how silly and goofy they can be is always good for a few laughs.

The dress-up clothes were a big hit on this occasion.

We put on a Little People video for the kids to watch after dinner to get them wound down.  I think it worked.  At least on Becca and Aaron...


Yup, the 'big kids' were pretty mesmerized too!

My eldest is 13 and she still loves playing dress up, but she doesn't call it that. She calls it trying on different outfits. LOL!
