Not the twins for awhile, but other family members. My brother-in-law is getting married in August in Utah. The kids were really excited about going until I told them there won’t be snow in the mountains in August.
“Not even at the very top?”
“No, not even at the very top”
“Then I don’t want to go”
My brother-in-law and sister both go to college in Utah. One of the twins decided that he wants to go there, too. So that he can go snowboarding.
There is a slight possibility that my sister could get married in December. The twins thought that maybe they could go snowboarding then. I’m not sure who they think is going to take them snowboarding though. I’ve never even been skiing. I have terrible balance and would probably break both arms and legs. I can’t even roller skate.
They are a little nervous about the ski lift. They keep coming up with elaborate plans for other ways to get to the top of the mountain.
My sisters boyfriend came home from college with her to “meet the family”. They came over one afternoon after the twins got home from school. The boyfriend brought snacks to try to win the twins affections. They didn’t buy it. They were polite to him, but not really friendly. When he left I asked them what they thought. They told me they didn’t like him. I told them I thought he was nice and suggested that perhaps they give him a second chance. Who knows, he could be family someday. Plus we were going out to dinner with them later and I wanted the boys to be a little more warm. So one of the twins ran to his room and came back with a paper and a pencil to ask him questions and write down his answers. Nothing like getting grilled by an 8 year old.
Thankfully the boyfriend was a good sport. And now when I ask the twins if they like him they say yes. Hopefully they’ll be good when they meet their future Aunt at my brother-in-laws wedding later this summer.
