The rest of the day turned out a little more eventful than the end of yesterday's post may have you believe! I thought I'd share a little more about it, especially now that I have some distance. :) It went down something like this... (narrated by this adorable almost 2 year old :) )
You see, my cute little self...
was about to flip back off of this chair AGAIN! So while my mommy, Lisa's friend, was busy watching me (and all within seconds of the rest of this),
Olivia's mommy, was to the left of where Olivia is in this picture throwing away some garbage in the workout room...
The second they were both distracted, my 3 1/2 year old brother and Braeden, no floaties on their little arms and unable to swim, wandered farther into the pool than they were supposed to!
My brother was holding onto Braeden's head because he knew he was in too deep and couldn't swim or touch! Braeden couldn't touch either though, and his little head kept going under water, panic on his face because he was about drowning!
My mommy yelled to my brother two or three times to "Let go of Braeden!" But he didn't because he was just so scared!
So... Lisa jumped in the water, with her clothes on, with her leather shoes on, with her watch on, with her electronic key ring in her pocket. Luckily she had taken out her cell phone and camera and laid them on the table just before this happened! She was able to quickly get both boys out of the water! Whew! And then Olivia snapped a picture of HER! :)
And THAT, my friends, was the drama in the hotel pool! :)
Of course I packed an extra set of clothes for each of the kids, but did I pack a set for me!? NO! :) I had Sunday's outfit for our family Christmas get together, that was it. So my friend went to get that from the car, and then she took home and washed my outfit I was wearing, so that I was able to at least wear it the next day. :)
A little later, we then went to another friend's mom's house to see all the amazing work and updating they've done over the past ten years since I've been there. So great! My three friends (sisters), their parents, and extended family were a second family to me when I was living in my hometown 12+ years ago. I did a lot with them, spent time on holidays with them, it was great.
Two of the three are married now, and one of them has an adopted daughter who is 2 1/2. So cute! She had my kiddos wrapped around her finger! Especially Olivia, who was roped into dance after dance! :)
One of my friends was talked into cracking nut after nut for my lovelys. Her sister had told her daughter enough after a few, and Braeden says, "I'm glad I'm not in THAT family!" Oh my! Hilarious!
