And guess what?? The washer actually saved family fun day...note my family gathered around it, watching it wash the first batch of clothes.
Who knew a washer could be SO entertaining!? (-;
My daughter can't get enough of it! I would have gotten a front loader along time ago if I knew it would mesmerize children under the age of 3.
Check out Michael...note his smile because in the very near future, he will be sporting braces.
And here is our giggly Collin, he couldn't stop laughing and didn't want me to get a picture of him smiling being the moody teenager that he is. So of course, I kept taking more and more pictures. I will not be stopped. Obstacles only strengthen my resolve.
Want to make a teenager smile? Ask him a stupid random question...like how many eyelashes do I have? It is such a bizarre question, they can't help but laugh. See we keep the "fun" in family fun...even if it is just eating out. (-:
And why did I chose to go to Toscana's in the first place? Why I am glad that you asked!!! It is right next door to a Carvel Ice Cream Parlor. Imagine that! So of course, it wouldn't be a "fun" day unless we popped in there for some creative creations.
Allyson's love of ice cream is just as strong as mine. And guess what? She is sneaky just like her mamma. Everytime, Michael turned his head, she had a spoonful of his ice cream. A girl after my own heart.
We had a great time, and it was a really nice night especially with the weather cooperating. It was great to have the kids together because we all seem to be going in different directions these days. But what can you do? You just round up the clan and bring them back together for the day.
I think they secretly love it and don't we all love torturing our kids.
