Day 21 of 30 Days of Mayhem: Walkertown

Today was another low key day.  We went out for breakfast.  Then split up.  Mom, Sherri and I ran a few errands while Michael, Dad and the kids headed home (or so I thought). One of the errands on the ladies list was to get a pedicure.  Traveling has completely wrecked havoc on my feet.  I will spare you the detail and just say the pedicure was a must and overdue.

While waiting for our toes to dry I received the following text and pictures from Michael.

If you look really closely you can see the"fish" in the crack between Rehm's two hands

So they did not go straight home. They took a detour to Fourth of July Park, which is an awesome local park that we have to visit at least once while we are here.  The funny thing is after all that work, Michael did not take them to get ice cream cones because they didn't actually catch fish.  He did tell them he would get a container of ice cream and they could have some for dessert after dinner.

After dinner another crazy game of dominoes ensued.  Capped off with a game of Greenie Weenie.  For those unfamiliar with this, it is basically a game to get all the dominoes back in the box and is very similar to Old Maid.  The double blank is the greenie weenie.  For some reason I can never remember the name of the game and call it the Stinky Pickle.  Eliza Claire who is an excellent game player has managed to get stuck with the greenie weenie every time we have played this game.  I know it is a game of luck.  For my very competitive child she has taken it surprisingly well.

Ice cream was finally had by all and everyone was sent to bed.  We had some who is sleeping where drama.  This has happened about once a week on the trip.  It is actually surprising it has not happened more.  Last night Ruby and Eliza were deciding who go the air mattress and who was sharing the bed with Charlotte.  Their bargaining chip was who got to share a bed with me next week at the beach.  It took about 30 minutes and a private talk with each of them to get it all worked out and everyone settled for the night. It is never a dull moment.
