Last night was super fun and it began when Sass arrived to sit for the kids. They immediately took to her, although, Carter called her Katie (her sis who needs a blog!) 1/2 the time.
Katie, Sass and Sam were my "first babies". We lived on the same street for years and years and I spent a lot of time babysitting for them. Even when they moved to another neighborhood.....even when I went to college.....I'd return to babysit. Their mom was the one who taught me to cut pizza with scissors.....how to make cheese tacos......how to make ordinary events exciting ones for children. I love this family and continue to implement lessons I learned watching their lives take shape so many years ago.
It's funny how life turns out......the girls I once sat for are now babysitting for my little ones. Sass shared a trademark Casey snack with them.....graham crackers and sprinkles.....another one learned from her mom!
The departure went very smoothly and I knew they do well when, as we were leaving and Lainey started showing concern, I heard Sass say, "Lainey, let's go be kitties and watch them through the window."
So, we drove into downtown Kansas City and started the evening at the Flying Saucer, an old favorite of ours. Love the plates everywhere.
And, then on to the show.......blissful. A fantastic set list and the theater was amazing. Widespread fans are good people - friendly and fun. Blake and I have loved this band for 1/2 our lives.
With Blake. We were kids again last night......and I loved every minute of it.
