The Evil Genius

Saturday morning Allison, Cael & my mom came to swim. It was really hot & the water was soooo great!  It was actually a little chilly when we first got in. That's unbelievable being that it hasn't been cooler than 97 this week. Cael had a great time!

I don't know how many times he jumped off the side. Sometimes with floaties, sometimes without. He wanted us to catch him. After the first few times of that we figured out to back up when he jumped so we wouldn't be injured! He'd go under, come up & say "I don't want to go under" & then do it all again. It was hilarious!!! Unfortunately, we didn't figure things out soon enough & I have a bruise that's a lovely shade of purple on my stomach & my arms are killing me from all of the catching!

Finally, he let us take a break & he played with Dean. They took turns throwing the diving sticks & going to get them. Here's Cael giving Dean instructions.

Cael was worn out. When we got out of the pool he asked us for a "soft place to sleep"!!!

Last night Wendy hosted "The worst book club ever". We certainly didn't do anything to dispel this name. At one point we were all playing Words With Friends with each other on our iPhones. We pretty much laugh & eat the entire time. It's sooo much fun!!!When Brea said that we're "kind of unconventional. We all read what we want & talk about everything besides what we've read!!" she nailed it. Last night we spent a lot of time talking about Andrea's unconventional engagement, something called "Uncrustables" that I'd never heard of & the "Evil Genius" that is Andrea. Notice a pattern here? Andrea is right in the middle of it all! I can honestly say she's the funniest person I know. This was Allison's reaction to something Andrea said.

 She's going to KILL me for posting this picture BUT it'll be worth it. It's a fantastic picture!



  1. Traci, it looks like such a fun weekend and how nice to have a get together like that for good girl fun. The idea of showing my daughter's house is a good one. I will have to work on that.
