Spray Tan Gone Wrong

Our family just returned from a funfilled four day trip to a gorgeous lake house at Lake LBJ for some boating with friends. This trip has turned into an annual trip, and it just loads of fun for the 12 kids and 8 adults involved.

I noticed this week that I counted to four in my head more times than I ever have in my entire life. Chad and I have code names for our children. They're quite simple... 1,2,3,and 4. This comes in really handy when I'm taking a head count. With all of the lake swimming, a beach surrounded by lake and a black bottom pool, I found myself constantly counting heads.. 1,2....4.. "Chad do you have 3? That kind of thing. It was a lot of work and a little stressful making sure all of the kids had their heads above water and were accounted for, but all the fun they had was well worth it.

This year I came up with the novel idea that I should give Chad a spray tan before the trip. If you know Chad, he's quite fair and does NOT tan EVER... So, this was a perfect idea, right? Well, it didn't turn out quite like I planned. He was streaked really bad and I think he was kinda embarrassed. Sorry, honey... Here are some pictures of the trip. Maybe you can see his spray tan gone wrong.. or maybe not.

I laughed so hard reading your blog. Being a mother of four, I could relate to just about everything. Everything except being able to talk my husband into a spray on tan!

Cute pictures! I can't believe how big Cort is getting!

I'm super impressed, there is no way I would be able to get a spray tan anywhere near Matt! Good for Chad for being a good sport!
