for a night. We had a handful of friends over for dinner; we all, excluding my pregnant wife, had too much to drink.
We stayed up late and slept in 'til 8 a.m. It was glorious. First time we've ever left all the kids for the night. It was nerve- wracking. We didn't sleep as well as we'd thought we would, thinking about the kids. Needless to say, they were all in one piece the next morning at breakfast. Thank you to everyone who helped make the night a special one. It was like having 10 vacations all at once.
