We all took turns playing Mario Kart on the Wii. There was lots of shouting, groaning, nudging and laughter as we played off and on all day.
The kids broke out into a few mini wrestle matches with flinging cushions and bodies everywhere! (yes my nephew survived this tossing by landing softly on the loveseat!)
Just Dance was played in between giggles and more laughter. These kids have moves man!
There was a major noodle battle in the backyard. A wounded eyeball stopped that though! (no blood, my niece just got socked by the corner of the foam noodle, ouch!)
There were a few hours of manly macho male bonding while my brother, hubby and son constructed this amazing broomstick handle wooden crossbow. lol :) It’s amazing what you can do with an old bungy (how the heck do you spell bungy cord? bungi, bungey?) and some wood.
It actually works though and they were pretty darn pleased with themselves and their ingenuity! Maybe I should dub them ALL Super Geniuses!
And I noticed just how much my son is growing, how tall he’s getting, how much stubble his little face has…. oh good grief I need a kleenex!
