That's How They Roll...

Well the nephews are back down south safe and sound, and I have to say that it's been a really fun weekend. All three are in their early 30's (two are identical twins), and are avid outdoors and sportsmen. The first day was spent sightseeing and ended at Octoberfest. After a few beers (they like their beer!), the stories they told us just totally cracked me up.

And if they disagreed with each other, it had to be "settled". Right then. Right there.

As one of the nephews said to me in his deep southern accent while throwing his arm around my shoulder, "'Cause that's how we roll, Baby Girl"!

How would they "settle" it?

The first time, it was a putting contest into a coffee cup in my living room. 4 rounds. The second time was wrassling, which I insisted be taken outside, even though it had been raining. No freaking wrassling in my living room, thank you very much. So they wrassled out in the mud at 11pm. And then decided to swim about an hour later. Which, of course, being pretty freaking cold outside, totally sobered them up for another round of beer.

By that time, (I bailed at the wrassling part), I told Hubby---"you're on your own" and ran like hell.

Sunday was spent in Denver attending the Broncos/Saints game. Then they all came rolling in for another round of beer or 6. We ended up spending the wee hours watching South Park reruns and explaining the Coloradoisms that might not be obvious to the out-of-state viewer and laughing our asses off.

Anyhoo, Hubby got them on the plane early yesterday morning. He was back at home around 8am and FELL ASLEEP IN HIS CHAIR with a cup of coffee in his hand! Those boys just wore him out.

'Cause, that's how they roll. ;-)

I spent yesterday with Big Kid, going over his schoolwork that will be due soon, and took him to lunch. We went to Walmart to grab a shower curtain and a mop, as well as a couple of more things he had ran out of and hadn't budgeted for (milk, soda, etc). All in all, we had a really nice relaxing day together.

How's YOUR week looking?

I have a few cousins in France (Bretagne) like your nephews. They are just a little bit exhausting ;-)
So happy you had such an harmonious day with BK((hugs))

Brenda said...

Oh yeah, those nephews of yours appear to be true southern lads. I get a daily dose.

The best part is that they don't stay long enough for you to get tired of them. What a great weekend!

She said...

Sounds like a great time to me!

I'm a twin and agreeing on our stories is often an issue for us, too.

Next time, I'm going to settle it with her by wrassling her to the ground -- in the mud, if I have to.

I personally think that those 'boys' are too young to travel such a distance without an older person along...next time make them buy me a ticket too!! LOL

PS Give the guys a hug from me! :)

Glad you survived the relatives! I'm happy to see you've settled into "relaxing day together" with Big Kid, too.

Let's stop to comprehend the amount of cocktails we could consume if I got to come to Colorado to visit you! :)


We southerners know how to party!

Oh...and South Park...HILARIOUS! Vulgar and infantile...that's how I roll! :0

It's about time you had a little relaxation on your weekend. Sounds like those boys were a good influence. LOL.

Looks like fun was had by all. Poor hubby sounds like they rolled right over him!

Haha! That's too funny! My hubby gets that way with his brother. They get together for too long, and they turn into 12 year old boys.
