You all probably thought that I had forgotten about the promised Summer Travel Journal. But, you are in luck, because I didn't forget and we are ready for the next installment.
We spent the first week at Dr. C's parents' house--where Miss B broke a lamp and an alarm clock; I broke the dryer and Dr. C's razor's case stained the bathroom sink.
They were probably pretty ready for us to leave by the weeks' end.
|What's with the one squinty eye?|
Miss B took over the Flintstone car like she'd had her license for years and was cruising around in her hot rod.
Miss Banana kept getting tripped over, so she eventually became our inside cheerleader.
Yeah, not happy about that.
Another night we had a bbq at Aunt E's house, where much fun was had by all.
They have a kiddie-car-wash...how cool is that?!?
Water balloon volleyball (and regular volleyball) were also big hits.
Fearless and T-Man got in a water fight.
Fearless thought he had the only water gun.
BIG...as in T-Man needed help picking it up once it was full of water.
That thing was like a fire hose.
Fearless didn't stand a chance after that!
Despite losing the water war, Fearless was happy because later that evening, we partied for his birthday. He shares a birthday with Grandma R and a couple of days later is Grandpa R's birthday, so everyone got to celebrate.
Miss B was a little stinker that night because I wouldn't let her gorge herself on cupcakes.
I'm such a mean mom.
Thank goodness for all of the family members that cheered her back up; she's so much more pleasant to be around when she's not screaming her head off.
And, since you've made it this far, I will end with a little treat. Dr. C's niece (in the background of the picture above) has been playing guitar since she was 9; and recently won 1st Place in her division of the local Idol contest. She just wrote her first song, True. The recording makes it hard to understand some parts, but listen closely; there is a verse about Miss B!!
