The "cool" aunt

Thursday night I drove to St. George after I got out of class and spent the night at Duane's so I could watch his kids Friday while Amanda was at girl's camp and he went to the auction. We were all tired and it was nearing 11pm so Duane told the kids to get their pj's on. I mentioned that I needed to "put on my jammies" as well, and Cade started making fun of me for being an adult that wears pajamas. Aubrey, always the sweetheart, immediately came to my defense, saying, "Duh Cade, of course Paige wears pajamas. She's the cool aunt."

We had so much fun together! Grandma drove up from Toquerville to spend the day with us and treated us to a nice lunch, then we went bowling on the $20 Duane had left for us. Chad was too young to bowl, but we set him up at the arcade on a car racing game that he really enjoyed. We only bowled one game, and Grandma beat us all with her 150 score. It was so nice spending time with them because we don't see them too often. Cade and Aubrey are very busy with school and sports, and they don't make it to as many family functions because the in-laws live so close we have to share them more. But they sure are good kids and I love 'em.
