My 28 year old son, Andrew: (Rapping) Well, I’m in the motor home with my mom and dad. Just – the – three of us, perfection is had.

Shelley: Ha! Ha! Ha!

My 30 year old son, Matt: Andrew, you’re such a D$%^!

Andrew: (Continues to rap) Well, you have to understand that Matthew thinks he’s funny. But I’m the funny one according to Shenley (My brother.)

Matt: Shenley? Shenley? What does he know about funny? I’m the funny one.

Shelley: Ha! Ha! Ha!

Andrew: No, I’m the funny one.

Matt: No.

Andrew: Yes.

Matt: No!

Andrew: Yes!

Matt and Andrew: Mom!!! Who’s the funny one?

Shelley: You’re both funny.

Andrew: (Continues to rap) Well, it’s so obvious, can’t you see? Matt Smith is not as funny as me.

Matt: That’s not what mom said.

Andrew: She did too.

Matt: She did not.

Andrew: Admit it. I’m funnier than you.

Matt: You’re not funny.

Andrew: There. Now that’s funny.

Matt: Did you??? Did you?? Did you just put my phone down your pants?

Andrew: No. Of course I didn’t.

Matt: I watched you do it.

Andrew: Nooo. I wouldn’t do that.

Matt: You did too.

Andrew: No. What I did was pretend to put it down my pants.

Matt: I watched you put it down your pants. You know what? There.

Andrew: Did you??? Did you?? Did you just put my favourite hat in the whole wide world down your pants?

Matt: You deserved that Andrew.

Andrew: I’m going to bed.

Matt: I didn’t put your hat down my pants.

Andrew: Yes you did. Now look what you’ve done. You’ve gone and ruined our Smith family summer solstice tradition of jumping in the 8 degree ocean at 10:00 at night.

Matt: What summer solstice tradition? We don’t have a summer solstice tradition.

Andrew: Not now we don’t. All because of you. I’m going to brush my teeth.

Matt: Mom?

Shelley: Matthew.

Matt: Ahhhh. Andrew I’ll do it. I’ll freeze my b@&&s off so the Smiths can have a summer solstice tradition.

Andrew: No. I don’t want to do it now.

Matt: Come on Andrew. Let’s do it. We’ll jump into the water together.

Andrew: No.

Matt: We’ll get mom and dad to film it.

Andrew: No.

Matt: Mom and dad will go with us.

Andrew: No.

John: I already went in today.

Shelley: Me too.

Sort of

Sort of

Andrew: I’m not interested any more.

Matt: I’ll go first.

Andrew: I doubt that.

Matt: Come on. You know you want to.

Andrew: No.

Matt: Honest to God, I didn’t put your hat down my pants.

Andrew: I don’t care anymore.

Matt: I’ll buy you a new hat.

Andrew: You can never replace it. Ever.



Matt: Fine. You’re the funny one.

Watch below for the first Smith Family Ocean Swim during Summer Solstice.

And once again, thanks for dropping by. With renovating 12 hours plus a day and wedding guests starting to show, I’m going to have to ask for patience for getting back to you.
