OK so I lied!

Really I did honestly think I would post something while I was in BC. Considering I wrote up a post that just needed a tad bit of editing... before I even left AB... it is pretty sad that I didn't! But that is just how I get when I'm out there I guess. All focused on farm and family activities and spending as much time outside as possible. Huh... I wonder... maybe if I hadn't moved to BI I never would have took up quilting or got so addicted to scrap booking! Well and of course I never would have started this wonderful blog! Thank God I moved here! hahaha!!!

Anyhow, we had a super GREAT time! It was wonderful and warm and very spring like... the way the end of March should be! ;) Glad I missed the dragging on of winter out here.

As we feared Shayla and Megan had a few million spats but by the second week they seemed a little more use to spending THAT much time together. The second week involved much less refereeing and much more just enjoying ourselves!

Shayla and Sarina did pretty good too... other then their one UFC match over the slide. Sarina wound up with few face wounds but Vanessa said she saw Sarina get a few good swings in there at the start. Clayton's reaction when I told him... that's my girl! So now we know why she's a bully... her Dad has been egging her on!

And as we expected she is a bit of an adrenaline junky. After Megan tried loping on the horse Shayla wanted a turn. Vanessa said she was shouting weeee weee the whole time and ended with a big smile on her face. And then kept asking to run for the rest of the ride.

Well I am sure there are lots more cute stories but for now I'll leave you with this:
Portable DVD players are better then peeing on the pot!!! hahaha! No really that is how great they are! Never thought I would say it. But the horrible 9 hour I mean 14 hour drive wasn't even that horrible and wasn't even that much longer then 9 hours! I am forever indebted to the inventor of the portable DVD player! Although now I have a TV addicted child.
When we got in the car for the long drive home Megan shouted 'YEAH I GET TO SEE DADDY!!!' And Shayla shouted in the same high pitched and excited tone, 'YEAH TVVVVVVV!!!'


Vanessa said...

Yeah TV! She can`t be chasing after her next adrenaline fix all day, the girl needs some down time too. Cindy anyone? hehe. It was so lovely to spend so much time with my sweet little nieces and that rambuncious nephew too! Wow what a handful he is.... :) miss you guys already!

Too funny! If it makes the drive bearable and 9 hours instead of 14... there's not much to making the decision.... TVVVVVV ... bring it on... yeah!

Megan misses Shayla! Today we went to the park and Megan was pushing the swing and I said, "would you like me to push you on the swing" and Meg replied, "not now I am pushing Shayla!" Then she proceeded to help Shayla off the swing, hold her hand to the playground and after Megan slid down the slide she turned around and said, "See Shayla that's how you go down a big slide!" They get along perfect when Shayla is imaginary! =)
