Longest, First, Most, Best.
August 24, 2010 § 1 Comment
It’s the end of summer which inevitably leads to an intensification of things, but this past weekend took the cake when defined by words that end in “s-t”.
It was family reunion time for the group united by my mom’s parents. I know most people groan after the words “family” + “reunion” but I think these events are a total hoot. The kids are cute. The adults are cool. It’s an s-t weekend to the m-a-x.
Longest: Hike endured two 7+ hour car rides (one to Iowa and one back)
First: Hike slept in a tent for the first time ever. He seemed to love it and aside from his big wide eyes the first night, you would never have known he hadn’t done it before.
Most: Thanks to a highly competitive family baking contest, I widened the loophole in my “one-sweet-per-day” rule to include the most calories in one (plate of) sweet(s) ever.
Best: As in, we had the best time.
Thanks Kuhl family! We’re already looking forward to next year.
