Dear Dad and Mom,

I’m so glad you’re enjoying your Alaskan cruise this week. Showny and Blessong have been having tons of fun. We’ve really been pulling out all the stops to make sure they have a great time. It’s been a priority to make sure that this week is really relaxing for them. Honestly, it’s been just like a cross between VBS, summer camp, and the spa. Here’s a few pictures of them relaxing by the pool, drinking ice tea in the hammock, and of course…watching tons and tons of TV. They keep saying they can’t wait till you guys get back, but I think they just mean they miss you.

Love you lots,

-me

“FREE! 10 Pound Bag of Apples With Every Purchase”

That’s what the sign said. You’re probably thinking I saw it at the grocery store or a feed store or something. Nope, a car dealership. That’s right.

“Hey there sucker! If you buy a car from us, we’ll even throw in seven or eight dollars worth of apples.”

I bet they were red delicious too. I totally love apples, but I draw the line at red delicious. Maybe if I had an organic one straight from a tree I wouldn’t mind it, but in general i don’t classify them in the apple family; I classify them in the “gross” family.

The best part about having two of my siblings staying over for the week is their eating habits. 1: they aren’t picky at all. 2. it doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to get rave reviews at the dinner table.

that sounded really bad. of course there are other wonderful things about them staying over for the week. like all the free babysitting.
