We’re back home now and the water is safe and the washing machine and dishwasher are, once again, in full use. Looking back, I could have survived here and boiled water for the week (like millions of my Washingtonian complainers compadres), but I’m glad I took the path of least resistance. That path led us straight up the highway to Pops and Nana’s house for a spontaneous 6 day, 5 night fun-filled family getaway, where lots of chocolate was consumed.
We just don’t take enough of those in life.
But now that I’m back home, it’s time to sit down here at the blog. Much to talk about tonight.
Let’s go with a list, shall we? I like these.
1. Max is all about hunting now. The Arkansas kinfolk had a little something to do with that but, truth be told, so did watching Little House on the Prairie on DVD. He’s a big fan of Pa and Mr. Edwards. They were hunters. Papaw, Grandma, and Uncle Gary are hunters. Simple algebra. a + b = c.
C=Max is now a hunter.
A stylish hunter, that is.
Max was invited to go along with Papaw, Grandma, Uncle Gary and Aunt Sharon on a day trip to the big Bass Pro Shop up in PA. Did I say day trip? Because that’s what I meant. Max had way too much fun and later he showed off the presents he received.
I don’t know much about hunting, but I do think he’s got a hunter’s instinct for staying well-hidden.
But I don’t think that’s how Elmer Fudd ever held a rifle, Mister. I like the fashion statement you are making with those matching crocs, though.
2. Okay, next obsession subject. This Razorback hat was a big hit!
3. And so was just spending time together as a family. We ate (a lot of) good food and laughed a lot (as always). Even Mini was giggling herself silly.
You’ve got to watch this! It’s about 40 seconds long.
Hope that video was a good start to your Monday!
