Today we escaped house as a family for the first time in 3 months. Some friends were gracious enough to let our clan invade their swimming pool and eat their food. It was some much needed R&R after yesterday's revelation.
After some conversation, I have determined that I think I need an electric smoker...but that is neither here nor there.
Ace got to chase the big kids, and Hope told us on the way home that her favorite part was all of the friends. She has a funny way of showing it, as did not speak to anyone the entire time we were there.
Even Sara got in the water to give Hope some swimming lessons until she remembered what she was doing. Mia swam for 12 seconds. And watermelon makes a nice tret.
The best part might have been that the kids didn't fight all evening.
Then we went home, they ate one more piece of watermelon, and started fighting again...shocker.
I didn't take any pictures. we were having too much fun.
It's hard to beat good times with good people.
