To make this happen, we asked Wayne's sister Sherrie if she would be willing to come up and watch our girls overnight. She immediately agreed and decided it would be good practice for her driving herself up to the Twin Cities. Metro city driving can be intimidating for anyone who isn't accustomed to it, and with Sherrie's sense of "direction," it can be even more challenging! But she did great and got to our house right away.
We hung out for a few hours then took off, leaving Sherrie and the girls to their devices. When we left, they were just starting the process of making cupcakes, and were deciding if it was going to be a cake cake or cupcakes that they were going to make.
When we returned the next day we heard that the weekend was fun, and had photos to prove it, taken by all three participants.
I present to you a photo essay of the weekend, with my interpretation of what I believe is happening. This will make this a long post -- if I knew more about how to code I would arrange it differently, but this is the best I can do.
