(yeah, I changed it a little.)
it turned out -unexpectedly- that Cousins stayed over last night after the birthday party.
that's pretty much a promise for awesomeness, isn't it?
there have been loads of new games made up
sharing secrets of a Neat Stuff box--particularly a cicada shell which didn't impress the girly cousins as it shoulda
Sonic!! (which is great news-- Sonic is a favorite of Trev's, and previously he's only been able to play it at friends' houses via gamecube)
lots of harmonica playin'
dino games (online and outside)
water balloon chaos (a favorite of ours)
two.no matter that they're not quite ready.....
to the park
and the local pizza joint
with a final stop for a slurpee on the way home
I don't know what their plans are for the rest of the night.
They were talking about going to bed while walking home after slurpees.
"At seven o'clock?" asks a skeptical Aunt Stephanie.
"Well I didn't get one inch of sleep last night.... so if I go to bed now, at least I'll be able to sleep!"
I'll probably be asleep long before they are.
Again. Eight o'clock or no.
They've worn me out.
I guess I'll just step into my private boat
and wave goodbye....
