Humm how to begin...haha j/k it's really not that big of a deal, I told Tegan, Tristan and Kirra I'd take them to go hiking Thursday morning, I asked Mardel if she'd like to go and she said the Kapele boys were coming in so we thought we'd all go. The whole time was really fun, climbing trees, snacks, catching lizards, cow patties and poison oak. Of course there are lizards everywhere so the boys got to chase and catch them the whole time (which was kind of perfect because Payten takes a little longer then all the older cousins).
OK so all this poison oak brings us really to the funny part! We get back to Mardel's for a swim party the rest of the day but first thing she does is strip the boys, takes all the clothes and shoes to wash them. She then got them all out on the lawn with "soap" and a hose. Everyone is sudsed (is that a word?) up and being hosed off. She even goes the extra mile to get out Carter's car seat, pulls off the cover and "soaps" it up as well (the "" will make sense in a little bit) hehe. OK so everyone is clean, on with the swimming, of course once Riley passes out the Girls and I HAVE to go to Target to get junk food to eat, heaven forbid we eat a salad or something like that. Anyways we are having lots of fun, they swim for hours and hours. Kelly shows up to pick up her kids. Mardel is telling this story to Kelly (so sorry Kelly you know this whole story). Then Kirra asks Mardel, but why did you use conditioner??? we were dying of laughter it was soooo funny, Kirra goes and checks the bottle which IS conditioner, not an ounce of soap in it. - Lesson taught by Mardel and Kirra! haha I really really hope they don't all get it, hopefully the chlorine killed it or something. It would be really bad if the Kapeles were all in Disney land with poison oak!
ok WOW long post ( I think I just ate a whole box of Nilla Wafers while writing it, that's embarrassing, hummmm must go jogging tonight now, dang) haha sorry guys, I just had a lot of fun and laughed quite a bit. This group of kids is VERY entertaining.
