We spent one day with JoDee and the girls when they got back.
This is JoDee's 5 lb hula-hoop that supposedly helps you shed the pounds. I put a picture of Madee doing it because in all mine, I look extremely pained because this thing KILLS! I think it's more for bruising up your body than exercise! I'd have to say the best part, though, was when Andee did it on her neck and choked herself - hello! why don't teenagers use their brains, they have them, don't they? I will give it to her that on the box, it has a picture of all the ways you can use the hula-hoop and one of those is on the neck. Crazy!
The evening before we left, we went to the kids' t-ball games. At this point, Savy was begging for her daddy and we even had to call him on the way home because she was crying. I think it was maybe a bit long to be away.Lastly, that night we went to a bridal shower for one of my best friends in high school, Jody, who happens to be my sister JoDee's sister-in-law. It was nice to see her again.
