After our super busy day on Saturday, we decided to take it easy. Kate and I lounged in the backyard while three of the boys watched TV and one of them, the amazing Santiago, made us breakfast! With only one good arm, I might add.
As you can see from his face, he was the first to fall asleep the night before. Boys!
Three of the Provencios' friends joined us and we all went to the neighborhood private beach. Santi finally got to relax!
The bay was pretty shallow, but there was a deep part for boats, so the boys spent a lot of time jumping into the deep part when not floating in the shallow part.
There was also a short lived attempt to keep a fish alive in a float.
Akuma had fun too.
After awhile we went back to the house, got a little food in us, and then headed over to Carlos' apartment for more swimming, but in a pool.
There was some pizza and even a little raquetball...or whatever game they were playing on the raquetball court.
Then it was back to the house. I went to bed and they were allowed to stay up as long as they want. In the morning it was time for goodbye (not photographed). It was sad, but certainly not their saddest goodbye. I think our trip help everyone realize that our friendship is strong enough to survive living in different cities. We'll see everyone again, hopefully sooner rather than later!
The ride home was uneventful. The boys ignored me in favor of summer reading, which was hard to complain about!
And they did a LOT of sleeping! They certainly had a lot of catching up to do! We spent an uneventful night in the outskirts of Knoxville then had a little hot chicken in Nashville before finding our way back home.
This was definitely the most ambitious trip I've done with the kids. (Keep in mind Warren once took them on a 5 week roadtrip!) They are really fun to be around and great in the car. I'm so happy we went!
