While We Were Gone...

While we were in Europe, my parents watched the kids for two weeks. While we were gone, Mom and Dad had to say goodbye to the puppy of my childhood, Prissy aka Miss Priss. This picture was taken at Round Top this last spring... We're still in mourning...
They had lots of adventures hiding from the heat in the wading pool, going to the farm, playing with Aunt Bobbie... and eating lots and lots of McDonalds and "Taco Casa" - which Meghan would continue to request at Mexican food restaurants.
Cooper learned how to request ice and walk around melting it all over the floor. Meghan learned to call people "pee pots" - which would just continue at school calling people "peepees" and "poops". Meghan rocked some puzzles with Aunt Bobbie. Meghan would come home and say she wanted to call Harla and Hailey to tell them something on her phone. Went and looked at ducks at the museum - that was when they had water in the pond.
Seems they missed us a little bit - but seems more likely that they entertained and were entertained the whole time. Getting to spend time with people who don't get much time with them otherwise. And most importantly, Mom now realizes why I get so little housework done. Mom and Dad said it might become a yearly tradition.
And in usual tradition, the effort to get a group photo doesn't go well with all involved.
And Memma fixed our favorite little orange dress to make it fit for now - most important since it's the one she will even lie about to get to wear it... very much the favorite.
When we got back, the kids jumped and rolicked around us for an hour or so... giddy and excited to see us. Nice to be missed... somewhat...
Thanks Memma and Pop - we know they had tons of fun and glad you survived! :)
