We lucked out on having our kids be such good friends. We don't even have to force them to like each other. They already do weird little things the same like hold their cups with one hand while holding their foot with the other.
We spent the sunny and unusually warm March day having our picnic lunch and chasing bubbles.
Then I paparazzi'ed the kids for their future wedding mem slideshow. Hey, a mum can dream, right?
We let them wander around and dig in sand (until the throwing sand in each others' faces started). I snapped this shot of Grey throwing sand over the volleyball net which made me feel like doing a foghorn (shout out to Susquehanna Vballers!)
Gemmi was with us too and besides waking up for 20 minutes to nurse, she slept the whole time. She still thinks her older brother and best friend are so boring.
And because they played nicely, we let them throw rocks in the river which is what they really wanted to do the whole time anyway.
I love having a best friend that can read my mind and say things like, "welp, I'm sufficiently tired from creating fun memories for the kids, lets go home and nap."
You've been there too, right? When a fun trip takes a turn for the trying-to-do-stuff-you-saw-on-pinterest-but-the-kids-are-so-over-it-right-now? Forced fun is hilarious...after a nap and a glass of wine of course. At the moment, its not funny- only exhausting.
