Girl Time

My sister left on Saturday and left her youngest at Grandma and Grandpa's house with me. We've pretty much (quite literally) torn the place up. Here's where we sleep:

The first morning she woke up with her head under one bed and her feet under the other. I should probably be taking my last opportunity to sleep in a bed before returning to the van, but who can deny a 9 year old a sleepover in a fort? At least the fort has air conditioning. 

So far we've spent 90 percent of our time here in our bathing suits. We now have two that match, and our cousin Kailen even joined in on the fun.

Kailen told me I was the "coolest cousin over 20." Just for that compliment, I went for full-on girlie and let them paint my toenails too.

Today was a good day for Kyra. She got to drive the boat and go fishing.

Shortly after she caught this fish, this guy planted himself behind her hoping she'd catch him one for supper:

Unfortunately, the fish figured out how to get our shrimp off the hooks without getting caught so we ran out of bait before we got him one. As Kyra put it, "Next time we need to find some dumber fish to catch."

Tomorrow we'll be at the beach in our matching hot pink suits! Afterwards it's time for more daiquiris!
