To my absolute delight, there was lots of cousin-al bonding, uber yummy smores, and NO swimmers itch during our far to far between Mehlan mini-reunion on the shores of the Missisippi last week.
Mom said Grandma Dorothy Mehlan would have been so pleased to have us all together in the place she loved. But I think we did her one better - we actually had 3 families, and 3 generations of FUN!
Apparently someone DOES actually read this (hi Aunt Jane!) so I'll quit wasting my words and get on to the good stuff - the evidence!
Beware of anyone proclaiming to be a superior canoeist due to their Girl Scout Boundary Waters trips. Said offenders may even throw out impressive sounding nouns like "stern" verbs like "feather" in an attempt to elevate their perceived status.
This one makes me want to break into song. "There's four bumps on a log on the shores of the Mississippi" (Think "There's a bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea!)
This "big ball" and well, this GIRL kept us all pretty busy. Funny, people call the Child "busy" but its everyone else who is running around!
"Big balls" are the funnest!
You can play catch with them.
You can chase them into the water.
You can play "so big!"
You can compare belly buttons.
Just one more shot of my darling cutie patootie at Norway Beach. Hey, its MY blog!
Stay tuned for more from our fantabulous vaca!
