Home Again Home Again Jiggity Jig

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite parts about going on vacation was letting all the rules slide just a bit. Mom said "OK" to things like sugar cereal, staying up late and taking a trip to the DQ. It's what makes a vacation a vacation. I tried to give William a little taste of that during our long Fourth of July weekend.

First we took a family trip to Como Park in St. Paul. William wasn't too fond of the big kid rides even though he was tall enough. Here's a picture of him on the fire truck ride before he broke out in hysterics.

The bumper cars with daddy were much more up his alley.

The next day Mommy and Daddy were treated to an afternoon by themselves on the lake with friends. There were jet skis and gin and tonics and MJ tributes, oh my!

On the Fourth we had to take the ceremonial kids photo.

Cousin Sally wasn't too excited about the idea.

There were snuggles with Grandma...

..and more go-cart rides with Uncle Jo-Jo.

We played hangy ball,

slurped on DQ treats,

and rode in the canoe.

Like a true mom, I didn't make it into a single photo on my camera. Oh well.

And, finally, we'll have to forgive Cousin Sally for her half-hearted photo-taking effort. Her vacation was extended two nights at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis with a UTI. My poor Sally girl. Prayers welcome.

  1. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend! It definitely is fun to let the rules "slide" a little on vacation. :)

    P.S. Lucy's 4th of July dress was adorable!
    P.P.S. I'm so sad that you weren't in any of the photos. Next time, you have to pass off the camera - or at least attempt to take a picture of yourself (I take cheesy self portrait shots all of the time). ;)
