Growing up I didn't really like driving in the car with my dad. Not only did he drive.... cautiously, but he always listened to talk radio. Talk radio! How can an tween put up with such a thing?? During one drive someone named Paul Harvey came on the air and it caught my attention and before I knew it I looked forward to going somewhere with my dad Saturday afternoons so I could hear Paul Harvey's segment called "The Rest of the Story". There would always be a twist and a surprise to end the story.
Last Friday I told you all about or little get-away to Las Vegas-you can read about it by clicking here- and today, like Paul Harvey, I am going to tell the rest of the story.
Remember this picture?Sweet-loving kind children.
The rest of the story: immediately before this picture they were fighting and declaring that they did not want to be by each other.
And this picture..
The rest of the story: Alex had to be carried or pushed in the stroller up to this level as her her "leg hurt" or "it itched" or whatever excuse she came up with at the time which lead to her screaming and kicking on floor.
And the fun we had swimming here...
The Rest of the Story: Alex refused to leave the lazy river-literally jumping back in four times only to result in us going back to our room instead of the big pool as was planned-which lead to a meltdown from Lucas too of course.
And this cute guy...I did mention how he got sick and threw up our last day but...
The Rest of the Story: The night before he lost his avocado he cried or tossed and turned all night and pretty much did not sleep at all unless Eric or I was holding him. Eric literally slept sitting up in bed holding him for about a hour.
So in the words of Paul Harvey "And now you know the rest of the story"
