I really love cruise control. What a great invention! Many thanks to the one who made it up. I used it about 35% of the time on the way to St. Simons and about 75% on the way home. I'm addicted, as Emily would say :)
So Wednesday after school/work Emily and I hopped in the car and went to see the Fritchies for the long weekend. It was tons of fun. I don't know about her or them, but it was JUST EXACTLY what I needed. Four full days of laughter and fun. And well, they live at the beach... on an island to be exact. Friday it was even warm enough to slip into shorts and take the boys to play in the sand. I plan on spending every single free second I have there this summer.
Among the happenings of the weekend were: guitar hero, dying Amy's hair blonde, dinner parties, guitar hero tournament, playing in the sand, naked time (strictly for the boys - see mom's blog "all little boys love to be naked' - it's true), creating Amy a blog, funny quotes from the boys (see amy's quote of the day), more guitar hero (Emily played 'fat lip' about eleventy-hundred times with Asa, who's highest score was 75%!!! ummm... he's five), dying Amy's hair EVEN BLONDER, movie night - the illusionist (good pick, Josh!), more guitar hero, bathingsuit shopping (yikes... need a tan, and excercise), seeing Sea Island mansions, seeing Laura Kirkland and Zoe at Gnat's, and eating at Sweet Mamas - so good!
One of my favorite things Asa said was Friday night - we were playing outside and he picked up a stick and Eli yelled, "no, don't break that stick!" (as if he had some emotional attatchment) and Asa looked him in the eyes and snapped it in half and said "it's not your stick anyway, Eli... it's GODS!" Ha! I love them boys... they're so fun. Even when they fight.
Five hours is a small price to pay for the fun that is had when I see those faces.
Can't wait to go back!
Eli wrote his name in the sand...
Cutest in the WORLD!
