Uncle Sherm and Aunt Susan and Tanner and Devon stayed in a hotel in Clearwater, but Cami and Mallory wanted to do their own thing and so they stayed with us.
Let's review . . . staying in a hotel near Clearwater Beach . . .
Sleeping on our fold-out couch . . .
They obviously made the right choice.
I had SO much fun with these girls. They couldn't get away from me. As much as I love being married, I do miss the gigglefests and ridiculousness that comes with having fun females around. We would stay up late (past 10) and play uno or watch movies. Daniel reminded me that I am no longer 18 more than once during the week.
If my own daughter(s) end up like Cami and Mallory, I can die happy. They are confident, beautiful, smart, and low-maintenance. And super helpful with June.
And they let me pick the movies we watched.
And . . .
Sigh. Both classics.
Cami and Mallory didn't seem to share the appreciation for these movies. While I was laughing hysterically at scenes I have seen 398247 times, they watched silently. I offered to rewind certain parts because they didn't seem to realize how funny they were. They declined.
I also wanted to watch Goonies, and they asked, "Is that like the other two we watched?" I took the hint. Not everyone loves the 80s like I do.
Hanging out with family was so fun. We went boating with them and out to eat, and they even helped us celebrate June's bday.
I had my friend, Tara, make the cake:

Isn't that so cute? She even made the chicks herself!
Please note my amazing photography skills. June waiting in the background foreshadows the upcoming event of:
I received mucho flako from the hubs and extended family about bringing her tub to eat it in. But I still think it was a good idea. Easy clean-up!
Thanks to Sherm, Susan, Cami, Mallory, Tanner, and Devon for coming to visit us! We had so much fun with y'all. I just can't believe I don't have a single photo of us all together!
Some odds and ends:
Another example of my photographic genius. I always say--There should be more vacuums in photos!
June playing with the present Sherm and Susan gave her. She loves it.
I hate selfies, don't you? Plus this is how mine turn out.
Happy Birthday, June!
