It is now 11:46 a.m. and they are still sleeping. I wonder when it might be a reasonable time to wake them up?
I waited a few more minutes and just knocked on their door and said "Wake up young people, it's noon!" I hope that works. I want to go on a nature hike with them at a state park this afternoon. I think it will be good for their immortal souls.
They went to Magic Kingdom yesterday from about 11:30 am to 9:30 pm. We dropped them off and picked them up. They would liked to have been there longer but 1. they can't get up early, and 2. T and I can't stay up late. What you hear is the clash of two generations competing to define what a "day" is. Hint, mine only involves daylight hours.
I am relieved they are old enough to be dropped off and we did not have to go to that park with them because MK is my least favorite Disney park. They don't serve alcohol there. Think about it: long lines, endless waiting, screaming children and no beer. All day and into the night, to paraphrase the Kinks.
They loved it. They sent me a picture via text yesterday of the two of them posing with a very cute Peter Pan cast member. Apparently my niece tried to talk him into taking her to prom. He pretended not to know what prom was, because he's Peter Pan and all that. Oh to be young and bubbly again.
We got home about 10:30 pm, and they decided they wanted to go night swimming in our pool. We turned a fan on in our room, went to bed, and left them to it. We never heard them. I am not sure when they finally went to sleep.
We have been binge watching the 4 Hunger Games movies. We all wish we were like Katniss Everdeen. We are all on Team Peeta.
I just made them banana and strawberry smoothies. There is cold pepperoni pizza left over from last night. They seem happy.
