Looky here it's Tuesday again and I haven't blogged. I would say I've been busy but that only gets me to about four o'clock on Saturday. Let's see...
Thursday The Family showed up. We had a great time enjoying a meal together and finding random spots for everyone to sleep. There were bodies everywhere!!! I was the only pitiful one that had to get up and go to work Friday morning while I was being begged to stay home and play - that SUCKED. I got to work and asked for the afternoon off, so I met The Fam at the park. They had already taken cutesy pictures without me (have I mentioned that I will not be remembered when I'm dead because I'm never in the pictures?) - not their fault but apparently a sore spot for me that I should investigate since I just mentioned it. ANYWAY, here are said pictures:

Here's one with Grandma!
We BBQd that night outside which was really nice. We had to dunk Shelle in a vat of bug repellent. The Virginia bugs LOVE the taste of her. I'm wondering if the Massachusetts ones will too??? Our local ducky family showed up after dinner begging for bread. I had a stale loaf so the kids fed them that:
Bryce stayed behind the fence because the ducks had no patience and were taking the bread out of his hand. I wish I had a picture of his face the first time it happened. Priceless.
If you run out of bread, try feeding them leftover baked potatoes. They don't like it quite so much but you get to keep throwing things at ducks which is always fun!

Friday evening we repeated the "Find a Random Place to Sleep" game. The kids all passed out and the adults played SkipBo. Matt and Ben couldn't have been more sarcastic and were teasing Mom as usual. Matt and Shelle promised to make breakfast Saturday morning. Shelle promised waffles and Matt promised eggs and bacon. WHERE'S MY WAFFLE? Mom woke up with an awful migraine so she was out of commission. Ben spent most of the day worrying about the move. Sky was sick. Shelle and I took the boys to the beach.
You can't lose Bryce because he won't move off of the blanket!!!
The water was warm and there were no jelly fish or other scary creatures. Zack and I swam and I even forced Noah in for a little while.
A few hours later The Fam. decided that they needed to get on the road so that they could break the twelve hour trip up. They packed up the truck and after some sad good byes they were on their way. Zack was upset. He wanted more Grandma time and because she was sick he didn't really get to hang out with her. Hopefully Christmas will be better.
Sunday we didn't.do.a.thing. I read a book and a half and made Sky take a nap with me. She even helped me put laundry away.
That's got me caught up through the weekend. Monday was uneventful except for the fact that friends of ours bought Rockband for Wii. Matt and Zack disappeared until 9:30 last night. I can only hope that they're going on tour!
