My weekend... - The Dainty Squid

My weekend...

Monday, July 25, 2011

WAS WONDERFUL!! (worth shouting about, of course!) In case you live on another planet (we've both been mentioning it for a while!!) Elycia and Ivan came out to Ohio and stayed with us for the weekend.
We took a billion jumping photos (which still doesn't seem like enough!), did some antiquing, took comfort in the fact neither of us knew how you should pronounce "gif" (which I did look up later but will still pronounce it G-I-F), stopped in at an estate sale, swam in a creek, ate delicious food, visited the beach, picked each others brains for awesome ideas, visited a water park, went on the most fantastic four person water slide, got lots of sunburn, and had fun!!!
I think the only person happy to see Elycia and Ivan leave was Squid, who hid in the closet all weekend and finally came out the second they left.
We miss you guys already, can't wait to meet up again!!

I'll be back later with another post to make up for how quiet it was around here over the weekend. Hope everyone has an awesome Monday.
xoxo

  9. aww poor squid! That sounds exactly like sui..most people have never even met her, the moment somebody nocks on the door, she is up and hiding in the top of the wardrobe and won't come out until they are gone.

  30. You guys are adorable! Even I was getting excited for you every time your tweets about meeting up popped up on my Twitter feed. And Kaylah, are my eyes playing tricks on me or does your hat fall of in that GIF? Haha. Oh, and I've always pronounced it 'jif' but I dunno if that's right.
