Once Upon A Time
There lived three girls with their parents. These three girls grew up in Ohio (Go Bucks!) and Wisconsin (Go Badgers!) and had a mostly happy upbringing. One weekend, after the girls had families and children of their own, the parents and the oldest and the middle decided to descend upon the youngest and her family, having just moved to a new city, and "help" them with projects around their new house.
This was fun, but kind of odd because two of the sisters had to drive with the parents and spent the weekend without spouses or their children. The two sisters, who spent quite some time in the parents' van, at times felt again like they were 12 years old, bounding out of the van at rest stops without having to lug a diaper bag or think about who might need a snack.
Finally, after working and working one of the days, they got the nursery painted, the spare bathroom painted, shelves installed and curtains sewed. It was a successful weekend. The End.
