Life is Good . . .

. . . at Grandma and Pop's house.









Swimming and sitting on Pops' Harley, plus ice cream, lemonade, two trips to the mall, staying up late, and lots of time snuggled up against Grandma reading. How can you top that?

So yes, we survived our "Girl's Weekend" to Massachusetts intact, though I listened to Elmo's Song in the car more times than ANY adult should ever have to, had to invent lots of wacky car games (Car Dancing and Who Has Lambie? for two), and took my children solo into two grimy public restrooms on the New York State Thruway (where anyone sitting in the next stall would have heard something to the effect of: Don't touch that! No! Hands off! Stop it. OK just one sheet, here you go. Very good. Hey! I said no touching. Not that either. That's really gross! Let's go wash our hands NOW. And don't touch anything else on the way to the sink. ). But we made it and it was so worth it. We got lots of good quality Grandma time in, which is always a good thing.

Though next time? I am totally taking Mrs. Chicky's advice and downloading her list of child-friendly songs that are much less likely to make parents' brains go completely numb, which I must say is a very bad thing to have happen whilst driving.

Nice makeover. And so much easier than the home or the body, and it's free!
Looks like the girls had a blast! Glad you had a great trip.

For some reason I was able to get on the site today. I remember those days with diaper changes, bottles, snacks, sippy cups and blankies on our way to your Grandma's heading over the Mohawk Trail. As I recall we listened to Thomas the Tank Engine tapes quite a bit. Now Drew who will be 13 in 3 months makes us pancakes every Saturday morning. Enjoy each day as it comes.

Rys - Thanks! I wish I could do a full makeover at the push of a few buttons (and while munching on popcorn to boot).

Maureen - Thanks, the music was a low note, but it would have been worst without it.

Aunt K - 13!?!? How is that possible?
