Lydia tidbits


#1-- After our 3 hour drive to St. Louis, we saw our hotel and I pointed out that it was called "Holiday Inn" so that Kiera could read it off of the building when she saw it.  Lydia pointed out "it's called Holiday Inn because we get to GO IN!!"  (..and get out of the car!).

#2-- we went to Denny's for dinner the other night.  Their is a nicely illistrated kids menu with pictures of all of the hot dogs, grilled cheese, etc..  Kiera promptly picked out her Mac and Cheese.  but Lydia insisted on having "Mean Soup" (which is what she calls all soups since reading the children's book Mean Soup.  She insisted that that is what she wanted.  I thought she'd probably end up eating my omlet, or Kiera's mac and cheese, but I let her get it (the waitress was looking doubious about it too, pointing out that it is entre-sized).  But, Lydia surprised us all and wanted nothing to do with anyone else's food.  She devoured her Mean Soup.  She knows what she wants!

#3-- we went to a science museum today and while in a food court steve took the ladies to the potty.  I watched them take off across the food court in the direction of the restrooms with Steve in the lead followed by Kiera and Lydia.  I saw it coming from a distance:  Lyida dropped her pants about 30 feet from the restroom door and waddled like a penguin for about 10 feet before Steve turned around and fixed her modesty problem.  I totally busted up laughing when I saw it happen and all of the ladies at the surrounding tables who were chatting quietly turned to see what I was laughing at and and they laughed too.   I wished I had a camera!

Oooo. The pizza looks good. nobody ever takes me out for pizza. Cute kids. When Mariyn started telling me about the Lydia/restroom issue, I had a feeling she dropped her drawers before Marilyn told me the ending. What a kid.

I love the one with the imprint... what do you call those things... with all the pins? Looks like fun!

Lydia is sure a funny kid! Great entertaining read. About the restroom issue, I was laying in bed last night, shaking the bed as I tried to laugh silently...still!

I bet those people in the restaurant were happy with the entertainment.

Sounds like they might be feeling a little better now that they're with both parental units? I'm so glad you're having a great vacation before the real world hits with Steve at work and you/kids at home (let alone getting settled!).
