My Dad is down for a visit, along with four of my siblings. It is a rare treat to have my Dad here and we are enjoying every minute!
(Five is actually a pretty small number of them to come visit...but that is because they had to leave room in the van to bring us our new king-sized bed. More to come on that subject later.)
We went hiking this morning along the Eno River. I left the house wearing a hoodie, vest and tennis shoes. I came home missing a few items and looking like this:
I am looking like this not because I got hot. But because I fell in the river. The kids made it across safe though. And we all know that is all that matters.
Everybody except me and the two littlest boys left to go see a movie this afternoon. As I was cleaning Ezra up for his nap he sneezed and this fell out of his nose:
My response: Holy Moly Ezra! (Yes, I said holy moly. Still not sure why?) What is that? How long has it been up your nose?!! Don't ever ever ever stick anything up your nose.
His response: Oh, dat feels much better.
This may look like any old 15 passenger van...but don't be fooled.
It is the perfect picnic spot for a passel of kids. Especially easily entertained ones.
After movie and naps we are headed to Enzo's for pizza tonight. If you live in Durham (or within an hour radius) you have to go there for the best pizza ever. Seriously. It is the best pizza I have ever eaten. No. Really. You can thank me later.
