thursday: not entirely sure what sparked this situation. there was some styrofoam that micah got ahold and of and decided to do some sort of science experiment. it apparently involved a small container of water, two buttons, a toy helicopter, and an orange… it seems the plan was to attempt to cause the buttons to rise out of the water by using the blades of the helicopter as a fan… and the orange, it turns out, was just for a snack. i’ll go ahead and ease the suspense. it didn’t work.
friday: another meet for layla, this time in vancouver. we got to play hooky for this one (everyone but shane), and drove down in the morning, picked up aunt marilynne, and headed to the event center for the meet.
after, we met the portland cousins at the spaghetti factory for dinner. it was a lot of fun, and great to see them. layla got a fancy drink called a cotton candy lemonade, or something like that, and it showed up looking like something out of a dr. seuss book. there was also a balloon man, and he made micah a pikachu.
