The Plan

My kids are so lucky.
They have a lot of cousins.
Lots of cousins who they are close to.

To celebrate the beginning of our Spring Break, we headed to Baba & Gido's for a few days.
Ava was beside herself ~ the cousins were going to be there!
It had been months since she'd seen 'her Chlo-Chlo'.

Chloe and Ava are great friends.
They play so well together.
But...that hasn't always been the case.
You see...when Ava was little, she had a thing for Chloe's dad - Uncle Stacey.
When he was around...Ava wanted no one else.
Since Chole is only 2.5 months older than Ava...she had a problem with that!
Things are better between them, since Ava doesn't try to monopolize her dad.
We had not even left the city limits when the familiar phrase crossed her lips.
Are we there yet?
We all groaned, ecnouraged her to look out the window and then ignored her when she asked that question about 40 more times!
It was to be a looooong drive.

I'm not sure we had even come to a complete stop before all three of our kiddies unbuckled and bolted out the doors and into Baba and Gido's house.

Ava and Chloe skipped off down the hall...not to be seen or heard from for hours!
When they did emerge, they had a plan!
I apologize for the mirror-images...The Plan went through the wash in daddy's pocket!

I want to take you on a tour of The Plan, beginning in the top left corner and moving clockwise...
The Stars mean they planned on staying up late.
The two girls in the rectangle represent the movie they planned on watching on the mini-dvd player.
Then they were going to get dressed - Ava had picked out clothes to wear from Chloe's suitcase.
Apparently, this is a long-term plan...because the Easter Bunny {who won't visit for another month} made the cut.
The clouds next to the person with the crazy hat means they planned on waking up early.

Notice the check-marks on each part of the plan.
I think it's safe to say that their plan was successful.
They did everything they set out to accomplish.

I hope these two little girls know how lucky they are to have one another.
When I look at these pictures...I'm pretty certain they understand!

I think the plan is...friends for life.
