You Would Think

You would think that after two days of having the grandparents in town, I would have something blog-worthy. Add in the fact that in that time span we have ridden on a very large boat AND gone to the Zoo and you would think SURELY something funny or interesting must have happened.

Not so much.

Other than the fact that the Toddler acted like she would surely die right there, at that very moment, any time someone looked at her for the first little bit that her grandparents were in town, there has been nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zip. Since the Toddler got over her allergy to family members pretty quickly the first full day they were in town, I got nothing.

Nothing.

Wait! Well, um, she did wake up grumpy from her nap today! Oh yeah, she's two. Two-year olds do that sometimes (32-year olds do, too).

Back at nothing.

How about photos from the boat ride? Yup, we'll go with that.

(Note to Alexis: Next time throw something valuable into the water, dance the macarena on the table, or scream some obscenities at the top of your lungs so I've got something to write about, mmkay?)

  1. I love the picture of her holding hands with the grandparents. My daughter has just begun insisting on doing that with us and it slays me.

  2. The hand holding shot just melted me...I love that kind of kid/adult picture.

    And now I want the REAL stories...

  3. Well at least you got some great photos then?

    It annoys me when I have an event that I think is going to be awesome blog fodder and then nada. Zip.

    Then a normal day and your child does something so freakishly bizarre you RUN to blog about it.

  10. I've had my in-laws in town too. One of the big perks of having family visit is that it cuts our work load! Uncle Dave becomes Evan's personal jungle gym and we even got a movie out of it last night!!

  12. LOVE the shot of her and grandpa...they both look like they're having a good time.

    and that dress is adorable...love the print...I think I have a similar print on a pair of capris but it looks much cuter on her than me.

    I feel I must also mention that Mr. Husband did not fall too far from the Daddy o' Mr. Husband tree...at least in looks. Nice that you have a snapshot of what you'll be looking at in 30 years' time.

  15. Tell the f-i-l that if he doesn't begin to give you fodder, they will never be allowed to visit again.

    And you totally need to cut off Alexis' popsicle supply if she's going to be so uncooperative.

    Maybe this is a sign you need to have another kid? So that the next one can step up to the plate when Alexis fails you?

  17. Hey, nothing is good. Nothing blog-worthy means things are coasting alone well. Enjoy it!
