Last weekend in lieu of landing in La Guardia, Blueberry and I drove a short hour to the “east coast” of Wisconsin and spent the weekend with a cool crew of kids and mamas. I was lucky to be invited to hang out with these friends – and let me tell you, I knew a good party was in store everyone! Knowing this, I begged their pardon as a two-timing, double booking, loser friend and groveled for re-admission to the weekend “par-tay.” Admission was granted providing I brought adult refreshments; a case and a pound of coffee helped my cause.
I counted on my fingers (math is not my forte) and there were 12 kids at one time: J, B, M, E, E, I, M, L, B, F, T….wait, that’s only 11!!!! See, math isn’t my strong suit. Neither was personal hygeine that weekend! But, we did have a blast. And, I sure hope we didn’t spread the ring worm!!!!
The highlight for Blueberry was the unexpected birthday bash – celebrating his 2 year old birthday. He LOVED the cake decorating – using a rather Jackson Pollock method he and baby Og decorated the cake with abandon….and the kitchen floor too. D
superstar for her tolerance of chaos and fun. It seemed like no amount of sprinkles were too many! (Or Pringle chips, or popcorn, or pancakes). And, there was Lucy
. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard, “Lucy kiss Blueberry” from Blueberry this week. Gator,
I think Blueberry might be a little Casenova! And, seeing Blueberry and Og in one place gives you a pretty good visual, huh? Speaking of Og, his goodbye gesture got a lot of play this week, “Og push Blueberry.” Yep, a kiss and a shove, that pretty much sums up the fabulous weekend!
And she’s in good company with the other mamas.
I’m getting out the therapy jar, just in case.
I can’t wait to camp-in again next year!
