It is a Friday night, the weather is perfect, kids are on "Spring Break" and excitement is in the air in the good ol' neighborhood of Colonial Oaks. As mentioned previously, there is a new clubhouse/treehouse in our back yard. Avery's new, fun adventure is to catch frogs and lizards in the ditch and bring them to our treehouse and "play" with them.
All the kids are out and about. "Curfews" have been lifted for these little tikes and plans have been made. Macaroni and cheese is on the menu, followed by a popcorn party served with orange soda and a viewing of "Rio" is being played on the DVD player.............all of which is to occur IN the treehouse. It is almost dark outside. By the time they have devoured their mac n cheese, it will be a perfect time to light the tiki torches and start the popcorn party.
Avery, Christian, and Brianna clearing the table and making their way out of the treehouse in search of frogs and lizards.
Rebecca, Brianna, Christian, and Avery waiting ever-so-patiently on the delivery of popcorn and soda. The tiki torches have been lit, the sun has set and the crickets are churping.
Nights like Friday night can do your heart some good. There were good times had, memories made, frogs were caught and bedtimes passed up. This is what being a kid is all about. Staying out in the dark in your jammies and mud boots. Drinking soda and eating popcorn has been given a new meaning. In fact, for these kids, life is GRAND!!!! Oh, to be a kid again.
