2:45 Ride boat, back and forth, back and forth


3:30 Leave the Hilton. Boo.
3:40 Tell parents “poo” while in carseat. Pull over on side of highway to, yep, poop.
4:00 Go to grocery store dressed in a long sleeve shirt as pants, because mama is a slacker and didn’t pack extra shorts. Sweet. Unfortunately no picture of this awesome ensemble.
4:45 Parents give up on parenting to make dinner, placed in front of TV to watch dance scenes from Grease (aka Geesey, if you’re two and learning to speak). It is Daddy’s favorite, he wishes he was Danny Zuko.
4:50 Daddy joins the couch brigade to leave dinner making to mama.

5:00 Help Daddy remove trucks from his skateboard, rub bearing grease all over face.

6:00 Finally dinner is served. Salmon, mashed sweet potatoes and swiss chard. YUM!
Hoover up all food on plate because growing takes some serious calories.
6:45 Shower, brush teeth, pee, storytime!
7:30 Blissfully out like trout

On to the next day!
