not me monday

a few things me and fam DID NOT do this week...

we DID NOT take an 10 day vacation to the most fab beach house in indian pass, florida...we DID NOT take nana and papa with us...and the kids are def NOT spoiled from having them around for an entire week.
paige DID NOT get roasted, red, burnt on her back on the first day sunning on the beach...it WAS NOT bc she had her 5 yo sister, brooke, put the sunscreen on her back.

brooke DID NOT tell me: "when i grow up, i definitely will be rapunzel."
me: "really. why rapunzel."
b: "bc she has beautiful long hair. oh, and a dog."we DID NOT have a visit from mr. easter bunny in our hotel room in nashville on easter morning...and it was NOT weird to not be at our church and just drive all day on easter.

jada DID NOT see a little girl walking in the hotel on easter morning out of sight of her parents and look at ryan and say, "that poor little girl does not have a family, daddy."
ryan DID NOT take us on a wild "starbucks" chase on the trip home sunday...trying to get starbucks coffee at the grand old opry...which, by the way, must be on the inside of the music hall, bc it's def not on the outside, in the middle of the road where google maps had us located.we DID NOT find a real "working" bathroom issue when we hit southern alabama on the way home...ryan DID NOT say, "now isn't this a geographical oddity...not a working bathroom in 50 miles of here."

we DID NOT stop 4,731 times for tinkle time on the only 5 hour trip home on sunday...and ryan was NOT flipping out every time the kids said they had to pee.

a few more things that others DID NOT do this week...well, look around. thanks to mck mama for starting us up...and please pray for stellan and the clan!!

Awww, I loved the pictures. Glad you all had fun but maybe a porta potty the next time???? That way, you won't hear the infamous, "I have to go potty" over and over again!

I wasn't aware that Rapunzel had a dog. Huh.

I've searched out Chick-fil-A's like you've searched out Starbucks and been horribly disappointed when it was inside of the AIRPORT instead of on a road we were walking along!!!
