We just got back from a week up at Put-in-Bay. Whew. It was a great vacation, but the last day was something else. Most everyone left the day before, so it was just my family and my cousin with her 2 year old son still there. Only, my husband was too sick to move, so it mostly was just me doing the clean up and packing (thankfully my cousin was there to help with the kids).
Then, we had to wait for 2 hours with 4 little kids in the car for the ferry boat. Then, my cousin’s son’s diaper leaked all over Greg’s car seat. The kids were so crabby the entire 2 hour car ride home. And THEN… our old fart cat had pooped and peed all over the house (we hired the neighbor’s 12 yr old to come over and feed the cats, give the old cat his medicine, bring in mail, etc). And my husband’s tomato plants are about dead.
And that was just one day. The rest of the trip, though, was a really good time. Lots of relaxation, fishing, bike riding, and hunting for mulberry trees. Vivi went from mostly crawling with a few steps to being a total walker while we were away, AND she started doing some baby signs. (’duck’, ‘eat’, and then making up a bunch that we’re not sure what they mean yet). It’s just so cute.
We had all the great-grandkids together, and got the promised shot of the 6 of them together (the youngest really wanted to run off):
I have a lot more pictures, but haven’t totally gone through them yet. I’ll be sure to post a few when I do!
