Step 2: Enlist the aid of a driver that 1.) Has no interest in drinking and 2.) Is willing to park himself in an open field at a local winery and read a book. See also below:
And they all lived happily ever after.

My Mom to an estimated 9 year old me: You are not allowed to say "damn" or "ass." I don't care what you hear at school or coming out of your grandfather's mouth.
9 yr. old Me: But when can I cuss? How old do I have to be before I can use those? I need to know when they can enter my vocabulary.
My Mom: Uhhhhhhhhhhhh...
9 yr. old Me: When? I need an answer.
My Mom: (laughing) Um, how about high school.
9 yr. old Me: Sounds good.
Flash forward to a 14 year old me getting off the bus on my first day of my freshman year.
14 yr. old Me: My ass hurts from riding on that damn bus.
My Mom: Of all the things I tell you, that's the one that you remember?
Kid: Ok. So can I eat a whole box of squeezy sauces? (don't know what a squeezy sauce is? click the link)
Kid: I just pooted.
Me: You're still not eating a whole box of squeezy sauces so move on.
Me: Hey you wanna go to Macy's and smell all the perfumes?
(Five minutes and 7 scents later...)
Me: You want to smell this one next?
Kid: No. My sniffer's broken. Can we go?

Ella's the 2nd girl from the right (no visor on)
Ella had a great time with softball this summer. The girls lost their first game, won the second, then lost the third and were out. She was happy because she got a trophy (who wouldn't be?!).
Ice cream face, Ella
A couple weeks ago, we teamed up with our old friends, Arlene and Vincent, as well as a new buddy, Allie, to go canoeing. Sorry, I have no pictures of the actual canoeing. It was super fun, no one tipped over, and many fish were fed goldfish crackers as we ate our lunch in the canoe.
After the canoeing, we went to Alum Creek State Park for a bit of swimming at their beach. When the splashing and general hijinx were completed, we went for ice cream.
