Our First Weekend With our New Baby, along with our 5 grandchildren

Wouldn’t you know that our first weekend home with our new daughter also included our 5 grandchildren.  Our oldest daughter and her husband had a chance to go on a trip (you could see pictures of her trip here) and had no one else to watch their 3 children. What’s three more? We came home from the hospital on a Sunday and we got their children on a Tuesday night until Sunday night.
Then on Thursday night our oldest son called. He had planned to go out of state to a friend’s wedding, with his wife, Friday morning, and their sitter they had lined up had to cancelled. So we told him to bring his two children over. What’s 2 more?
So needless to say that weekend was hectic fun. We had 10 of our children, and our 5 grandchildren, 7 were 5 and under. Fortunately our older children really helped out tremendously. Going from no diapers for over two years, to four in diapers was a big adjustment.
Here is our new baby (one week old) with her two nieces and three nephews.

All the children really had fun playing and spending the weekend together.

Every meal was an event in itself.

We all slept in on Monday morning.
Would you be up for this challenge?
