The Contest of Fun

Abe, Clark, Bethany, and Elinor left yesterday morning for a week long cruise to the Mexican Riviera.  This trip is part of an incentive program with Abe's work-- which work he worked so hard at this year that he earned enough to completely pay for all four of them to go.
I like to think I was Abe's first choice of trip companion, but since Peter is less than six months old, he could not go.  And since Peter couldn't go, I wouldn't go.

So as it is, I am home with my four youngest children, also known as "Team Little Rascals".  We have challenged Abe and the older kids, AKA "Team Crazy Cruisers", to contest of fun.  Who will have the most fun this week?  You might think it's no contest, but The Little Rascals plan on giving The Crazy Cruisers a run for their money.

You be the judge-- here is day one and two as told in text message pictures and commentary.

 Betsy to Abe:  Team Little Rascals off on their first adventure this week--the dinosaur museum.  Love you all!
Betsy to Abe: Team Little Rascals challenges Team Larger Than Life (name later changed) to a contest of fun this week.  At the dinosaur museum.  Take that!

Betsy to Bethany:   The challenge is on like donkey kong!

Bethany to Betsy:  We are gonna kick your trash.  Just you wait!

Betsy to Bethany:  So that's how it's gonna be!

Bethany to Betsy:  Yep!  We are gonna rock this competition all the way!

I declare Day One goes to... Team Little Rascals!

Abe to Betsy:  Tiny room for 4 Crazy Cruisers!! HUGE Adventures Ahead for 4 Crazy Cruisers!!

Betsy to Abe:  Should be fun to get ready in the morning.
Abe to Betsy:  Hawaiian Clark-a hooky (his Hawaiian nickname since he was a baby).

If I'm being honest, I have to give Day Two to the Crazy Cruisers.  
They are out at sea now and I we probably won't have a lot of reception for the week.  As it stands we are tied at one to one.  Stay tuned for more!
