There were a couple of funny moments, if you are traveling with kids you know there will be plenty of those ... as we were getting ready to take a shower one night, there was a lady in the shower next to us and Nicolas decided to take a peek, thankfully it had a shower door so you really couldn't see much but you could see enough to know there was a naked lady there, he said "mommy!!!!!!! Look at this, it is so funny!" GREAT! I calmly told him that it wasn't nice to peek on people when they were taking showers and thankfully the lady that was in the shower was so sweet about it ... phew!
Another night in the shower he said "mommy, this shower is nice but my daddy couldn't fit in it" :D
The funniest of all - the last night we were there we had "Mexican food" for dinner (I put it between " " because I'm sure a true Mexican would have a heart attack if they saw what we ate, it really wasn't Mexican but I guess the American version of Mexican food) and another lady and i sang a song in Spanish, it was fun. It brought back sweet memories of my childhood because it was a song that I used to sing in church growing up, all this to say that when Nicolas realized I was going to sing and on top of that in Spanish, he said "mom, I'm going to my room, come get me when you're done!" :D :D
Emilia did excellent considering she is a determined 2 year old who hates to be confined in one space, she went right along with the big kids and she wasn't afraid to speak her mind. One day in the van when we were coming home from our July 4th celebration (we went to a national park that had a pool with a huge slide, it was tons of fun, then we had hamburgers and hot dogs) the older kids were being loud, by then they were so comfortable with each other they were playing/joking/fighting like brother and sisters, she told them "GUYS! Be quite!! I'm trying to sleep!!" my little girl will always make sure her opinion is known ... uh oh :) She didn't mind working, she helped wipe tables after meals, she attempted to sweep floors and if it was up to her she would have done everything she thinks she is capable of doing LOL
The last night we were there I thanked Nicolas for going with me on this trip, he hugged me and said "I couldn't survived without you Mommy!!" my heart totally melted, sweet boy!!!!
It was so much fun to go with the kids, learn, grow, work and burn up in 100+ weather all for the good cause of working for the one we believe!!!!!!
Can't wait 'til next year!
