My Knott's Berry Farmer's Tan

When we went to Knott's Berry Farm, I sunblocked my face. I intended to sunblock my arms and legs in an hour or two so they could get a little color. I forgot.


The next day I tried to rectify the situation on the beach. I put SPF 50 on my sunburned arms and deliberately burned my shoulders, chest, and upper arms. Unfortunately, I wasn't very precise with the sunblock...

Yes, the Farmer's burn was nice, but not nearly as sexy as this stripe. Sweet!

Other than that, we had a great time. We left The Queen with Joy and my mom back at their beach house, where she decided to stage a 12 hour hunger strike. That's right she wouldn't drink one ounce of breast milk from a bottle. Stubborn kid.

But it was lovely not to have to deal with an infant.

Last year we did it without the husbands, and it was a nice change to have Wendell and Greg around to help out.

We got to split into different groups at different times, and everyone got to do the things they wanted. My favorite was hanging out with the older girls; Miss Rachael, Kinsey, and Kylee. Kinsey and Kylee are nice to me, and it started to rub off a little on Rach;) They made me feel a little like a teenager again. And they are dang cute girls.

Silly kids.

It is so fun to hang with cousins.

The kids were all a little more daring this year, thanks to a little cousin peer pressure, and had a lot of fun.

Brenley and Mitchell on a little plane.

Bren was happy the entire time. I was sorry that I had rented a stroller, because she didn't spend five minutes in it the whole day. She couldn't get enough.

(Brenley with Addie,Dax , and some random kid on a fun up and down ride.)

On the way out to the car Brenley was actually skipping. I have it on video, but I can't figure out how to post it. It was hilarious. I was contemplating the loss of my two pinky toe nails, my feet hurt so badly, and Brenley was skipping. That kid can be the Energizer Bunny when she is having fun.

More highlights of the beachhouse trip to come!

5 people know I love comments!:

That tan is hilarious! My nephew has been out at the pool acting like a rotisserie trying to get rid of his farmer's tan!

Looks fun! Minus the burn. Maybe you should get a temp tattoo around your arm.

Oooh fun! I love Knott's Berry Farm! Oh, that sucks on the farmer's burn, hehe. My poor Tyler-I put sunscreen on his face but totally forgot he only has like 10 hairs and they're really light so his head got totally burned while swimming. stupid sun :P

HAHAHAHAHA! LOL! That's pretty funny! But, it did look like a good time. I haven't been there since I was 8. I'll have to take the girls!
