Mid-week, some Aunts and Uncles from Michigan came for a quick visit. They invited us over to their hotel for a swim in the pool and a great time was had by all. Josie and Mikey did their best to drown Uncle Dave, but he wouldn’t go down. The Josie dog-paddled on her own! For a while now she has been telling everyone that she can swim (but she really couldn’t), but now she can! There was a little water swallowing and a moment where she thought she was drowning, but she can now swim for real!

Elia, does not swim, thankyouverymuch.

Funny story, this swimming area also has a small sauna, which we used. Del and I were in the hot box, enjoying the steam, when I heard a sizzle. I looked over and saw a startled looking Delchi, quickly tucking his guy back into his swim suit. The boy had decided to pee on the rocks! Gross. What is even grosser, is that we sent a cloud of burnt pee smelling steam into the pool area and thus ended our swimming time. Yay, Livovich family!

Speaking of yummy things, while Abuela was with us I don’t think there was one day when we didn’t go out to eat, or for ice cream, or just because. We hit all the favorites – Smokey’s, George’s, DQ, and a new favorite lunch place, Tonya’s Patisserie. We had Cream of Roasted Romaine Lettuce! Crazy stuff, and crazy good! Also, a fried green tomato (from her uncle’s backyard!) sandwich with bacon and a balsamic reduction which was fantastic. Plus a few other good things and I ate like a fool.

On Mom’s last day here was the hsLIFE Science Fair! We have not participated in the past, but we did this year! I’d be the first to say that I am not a sciency person, but it was fun to be part of this! We were going to go with our praying mantis, but it died, and stunk, REALLY STUNK, so I threw it away. So Elia made rock crystals, and I learned some new things in the process!

Now Abuela is off to visit Uncle Ken and Aunt Esme and all their sweet girls. We will miss you, Abuela!
