The drive there was mostly fine until we came to Hoover dam. There was a huge backup where we were in stop and go traffic (with mostly stop, and occasionally going one or two miles an hour) for two hours. Yes folks, two hours of that with just me and three kids. After sitting in one spot for five minutes with poor little Finley screaming her head off, I got out and held her. Unfortunately, that is the moment when traffic decided to move, so I pulled a Brittney Spears and jumped into the driver's seat with her on my lap. Since traffic was barely moving, if at all, I ended up nursing her on both sides and changing her diaper while cruising along at 1 mile an hour. I know, I'm a bad mom. I was dearly wishing for Keith at that moment.
On Friday we all went to the Clark County Fair. We didn't do any rides, since we are going to Disneyland in two weeks, and thankfully the kids were okay with that. Although Isaac did point at the Ferris Wheel and say, "I hink I better ride that." Bampa got his arms worn out from carrying around a little girl...not sure why she seemed unable to walk. Hopefully this isn't a foreshadowing of her behavior at Disneyland.
We watched a cute animal show that the kids really seemed to enjoy. Can you tell they really love their Bampa?
Rhys and Finley will be great friends someday, but on this visit Finley got very concerned and scared when Rhys would smilingly scootch across the floor to her. Could be that he is quite a bit bigger than her, despite that she is older. Reminds me of a dorky rhyme my cousin Linds taught me when we were kids:
Fatty and Skinny went to bed. Fatty rolled over and Skinny was dead. Now Fatty is sad 'cuz Skinny is dead.
No offense meant to Rhys, because he is the cutest little chub-chub. More on this trip later!
