Here are some highlights ----
There was a deer head on the wall. We put a hat on it.
There was an ugly mailbox. We had one just like it growing up.
The Boy had enough s'mores to last him a year. He also had on a really cool shirt.
Bean got very dirty. Here she is thinking about how she could get more dirty.
The Girl looked beautiful, as always.
The highest of highlights of the weekend is that a very good friend of mine came to visit.
I got to
fall ass over tea-kettle while getting out of the hot tub spend time in a hot tub. I got to read my book. I got to relax. We went to the beach. We played with water guns and glow-sticks. I got to dance hula outside under the trees when everyone had gone out for a few hours. I found a new book I want to read. The Boy got to see bear tracks. A few friends got to see a bear making tracks. The Girl earned a few coins to rub together by doing some chores nobody else wanted to do. Bean got to play in the sand at the beach.
There were a few hiccups here and there, but with 4 days, 9 adults, 1 teenager, 1 six year old, two preschoolers, 1 toddler and 3 dogs there are bound to be; each of us have different opinions on TV usage, food, bedtimes, manners, behavior. We made it work, though. Most of us were adults.
Special thanks to EA Awesome for putting together a fab weekend. We don't see you enough. Also thanks to the men who manned the grill. The ribs and sausages were delicious. Thanks to Hubby for doing all the driving there and back. Thanks to my friend for coming out to visit for a few hours.
Looking forward to next year.
