Last week I asked you why their hands were grey...
And how long it took to have hands this prune-y...
I'll get to the answers to those questions in the story of this post.
Last weekend both of my sisters were at my parent's house. That is two hours away but considering that they have both been living in Florida and I only get to see them about once a year... two hours is close. I was all in the middle of house stuff but decided to take a day trip and visit with family... it was worth it!
Lisa still lives in Florida. Linda just moved to Maryland and is now only five hours away. Yay!
Me, Mike and the kids woke up early and headed out. As we began the drive...
ME: Road trip!
LIZA: Yeah. Not a grass trip!
JASON: Or a tree trip!
We got to mom and dad's and the cousins started playing. After lunch they wanted to go swimming but the water was too cold. They insisted that Grandma put some hot water in it while they waited.
I'm glad that my mom warmed it up because the kids played in the water all afternoon.
While the kids played the adults played too...
And then things started getting messy.
There was chalk and it was discovered by the little ones that wet chalk can be a lot of fun.
And that's how you get hands that look like this... wet chalk of all different colors mixed together...
The girls continued with the chalk while Jason hung out in the pool.
After several washings of chalk hands the water started looking like this...
I realized a lot of time had gone by and none of the kids had gone to the bathroom.
ME: It's been a while and the kids haven't peed. I bet there's lots in the pool.
LIZA: I peed in the pool a while ago.
ME: Liza! We don't pee in the pool!
LIZA: Well I did it before.
ME: That was at the lake. Don't pee in pools!
LIZA: Well at least I made more water!
The kids were in the water from probably noon till around 4:30. That's how Jason's hands ended up looking so ridiculous.
We had dinner and then had to say goodbye and make the trip back home. I think the kids were pretty sure that they didn't have enough time together.
And that's my way too short visit with some of my family last weekend. I love my family!
