Friday night, our swim team's pool was hosting a Splash Party movie night, showing "Monsters vs. Aliens" at the pool while we swam. Seemed like an excellent way to cap off Splash Camp. I met up with Elizabeth, and the boys played with Andy and CeCe in the pool. It was supposed to start at 8:30 p.m. (once its dark) but due to technical difficulties, it didn't start until 9:50 p.m. The kids didn't mind - the diving board and slides had short lines (unlike after swim practice) so they got to use them about 100 times each. But this was quickly turning into a late, LATE night, so about 10:15 p.m., I pulled two unhappy little boys out of the pool.
I'm not sure how much Texas history the boys learned. There was no organized tour, and no leader was doing much to explain the sights we were seeing. History major geek and control freak that I am, I did my best to narrate what we were seeing and try to make it more interesting for the boys.
Alas, they seemed more interested in any kind of video they could watch.
Or any buttons they could push.
Especially when the buttons were combined with videos, as they were here at Mission Control.
Later, we celebrated Uncle Drew's birthday over at Grampapa's house. As always, cousin Connor was the highlight of the visit. And according to both boys, "Connor" was the favorite thing they did all weekend long.
Finally, on Sunday, after two plus years or "discussing" which color to paint our bedroom, Carl and I had reached a detente and painted the sucker. Team Danger was suprisingly unexcited about painting, so they spent most of the day watching Alvin and the Chipmunks, playing on the wii, and fighting over Star Wars toys. Good times.
These aren't the greatest photos of the walls, but we still haven't replaced our real camera. Lets hope those discussions go faster than our wall color - our iPhones have acceptable cameras, but they are truly insufficient for the amount of photo taking I do.
