It was time...

Back when the California skies were sunny, we got around to doing our annual car wash. No, it was not a fundraiser, but we should've been paid for all the bug guts we scraped off the van's splash guard. Some of those guts originated from road trips many moons ago...

The kids were excited to help us wash the car, until Ellie realized it was "work" and plucked all the blooms out of Grandma's garden instead.

Erik put forth a commendable effort. He embraced one of Grandma's favorite adages: "Anything worth doing is worth doing well" (and that's the one that still haunts and tortures me every time I'm doing housework), steadily scrubbing and re-scrubbing and re-scrubbing that spot on the car for the entirety of the experience.


Hope that spot stays sparkly clean until next year's annual wash.

Dedication: I love it. And I love your annual wash. Honda is so old that she doesn't even get outside baths, just inside vacuums. It just gets to the point where there really IS no point!

I'm pretty impressed with the California sun, not to mention the cute kids. (I've never understood that phrase, because not to mention and then to mention. Pretty dumb.)
