Two Plus Eleven

My sister asked me to drive up to where she was cottaging and help her babysit nine kiddos. She wanted to gift her cousin-in-law and her husband with a night away. I brought two of mine and so we hung out with a whole lot of short people for two days. The tiny cottage had three bedrooms just big enough for a small family but we managed to squeeze everyone on beds, couches and the baby in a playpen in the hallway. The lake was so shallow the kids were able to stand even in the middle of the inlet, which made it a great spot for practicing otherwise dangerous sports. We could run out to them in seconds without getting wet :) The couple returned to their five children and were thankful for a night out and some alone time.
What a blast we had!
