On Day 3 we spent the EN-TIRE day at the pool. There was a huge water slide which Aubrey and Emma played on for 3 consecutive hours: down the slide, climb the ladder, up the steps, down the slide, rinse and repeat.
Sadie Plum, who it turns out is a true Southern Belle, spent the day lolling about in the shade of her stroller, reclined with a huge sunhat to shade her delicate face and a miniature battery-operated box fan blowing a cool breeze on her lest she perspire.
The girls played at the pool until Emma, took off her life jacket, threw it to the ground and proclaimed in tears, “I done! I go home, NOW!” We retired to our room for naps and showers before meeting some of our Auburn friends for dinner.
I am VERY proud to say that my girls acted like little ladies at the restaurant. Aubrey even unfolded her napkin and placed it primly in her lap as soon as her silverware was placed in front of her. They ate their chicken and broccoli without so much as a peep. The only typical moment during the whole dinner was after Aubrey returned from a potty break. She announced to the entire table, “Eating vegetables makes you have to potty… hard!” Thank you Dr Oz, for the quick lesson on fiber.
