Wednesday Williamisms

We were at Braum's getting ice cream this weekend and I asked William if he wanted to try my mint chocolate chip ice cream.  Of course relating everything back to Disney, he asks, "Well what does Dale taste like?" know, Chip and Dale.

The last few weeks William is all about questions.  He wants to know what everything or every word means.  He says a prayer at day care before lunch.  It goes like this:

Thank you Lord for this day and for this food you have given us today.  Thank you for mommies and daddies, for brothers and sisters and our teachers. Protect us from evil, danger and accidents. Amen.  

So he keeps asking over and over again-
"What does evil mean Mommy?"
"What does danger mean Mommy?"
"What are accidents Mommy?"

"Is a fire and tornado evil?"

I never realized how hard it is to explain what some of these words mean to a four year old!

Splashing Around

The summer has already started off with a bang! My parents just had a new in ground pool installed and it is ready for summer fun.  We didn't grow up with a pool, but had a few friends that had one.  Once my parents moved into their new house a couple of years ago, mom said she wanted a pool.  I couldn't disagree! Dad, however, wasn't a fan.  It would mean maintenance and of course the up front expense.  But she talked him into it and now, I think he is glad she did!

Their pool was ready earlier this year and we couldn't wait to try it out.  We did get in the hot tub a few times this spring.  We've now officially broken the Easler pool in though many times over.  We will definitely be spending a lot of time over there this summer. 

This past Memorial Day, we spent all day Sunday enjoying weather, family and the pool. We even have a pinata!  My parents have gone all out in making sure everyone has a good time- including water volleyball, outdoor drink station and adding a nice basketball goal out back in the driveway too.  Add in the media room upstairs and air hockey table, and you can bet her we won't be far this summer.  It's the ultimate way to get your kids and grandkids to come visit more often!

We look forward to an amazing summer poolside! My niece Ally is already a fish and swimming well and both Michael and William are getting in a lot of practice.
