When Mommy and the boys visit Mommom and Poppop at the country house while they are in residence, Mommy tries very hard to keep everyone nice and tidy and on their best behavior. Clothed at all time, no eating things off of the floor, faces wiped, hands clean - a very civilized bunch. Since Mommom and Poppop are away, Mommy has been a little lax about those rules.
For instance, there was the day of swimming in underwear, rather than proper swim trunks.
Then there was the day of black raspberries when Goobs was rinsed off in the pool after lunch, rather than wiped off properly with a cloth.
And of course, there was Ernie, stealing yogurt and Mommy letting him eat it in the garden, because after all, it's vacation and we are allowed to behave like barbarians.
And, vacation just wouldn't be vacation without a little bit of sandbox/hammer time.
But, everyone seemed happy.
And Mommy got a little rest.
