Okay now that my pitch is over let's move on to catching up with The Gaydy's! This past week and weekend has been crazy, but then again we wouldn't expect anything less! Last weekend we had a houseguest. Yes that's right, Gunkle Matt came to visit and spent time with us and the kids!
Relax, don't panic, we planned Gunkle Matt's arrival. It wasn't like Will Smith showing up in Bel Air all like:
Actually it was more like this:
Let's start with the first night, I mean that seems like the most appropriate place to start. So the first night became something like a cross between Dancing With the Stars minus the Stars and American Idol. Alessandra and Bianca performed their usual routine of "Time of My Life" from Dirty Dancing, which ended in the graceful lift and by graceful I mean:
From there they performed several other dance routines that made me pull a few muscles and have an asthma attack just watching them. Anthony decided to jump into the mix with his standard "Ju Ju on the Beat". Gunkle Matt got into the groove and performed a duet with Bianca from the Musical Wicked. I felt like I was at a private showing for The Gaydy's Got Talent! My wife and I just sat back and enjoyed not hearing "Mom, Mommy, Ma, Mom, Mommy, Ma, Mommy, MOMS" for the entire night.. thank you very much Gunkle Matt! We ended the night with my wife and I finally excited to have Gunkle Matt here to occupy the kids. Which meant that we danced to the bedroom like:
Gunkle Matt is a game junkie, so every night we spent family time playing a different game. We played charades, heads up and mad libs. Charades was the best because it was the adults versus the kids, so we purposely picked topics that we knew they couldn't act out! Asshole move, I know, but hey can't let them win! One of the topics was Famous Buildings in New York City. Of course Gunkle Matt and my wife being born and raised in the City had this one down! When it came time for the kids, Carlton had to guess. The first building that came up was the Flatiron building. Bianca gave the best clue, by saying "What do I do with my hair every day". Carlton busts out with Eiffel Tower, followed by a group "WHAT?! then this look:
I'm still trying to figure out how we went from Famous Buildings in New York to the Eiffel Tower? Where in "what I do with with my hair everyday" gives one the notion that they were indicating the fucking Eiffel Tower!? I don't think I'll ever look at our daughter's hair the same without thinking about the Eiffel Tower. I mean I know she does french braids and shit, but really?
Gunkle Matt got to do the drop offs and pick ups with Mamma Tammy and when I came home from work I heard, "Hi honey, how was your day" by not only my wife but by Matt. It was like Will & Grace all up in the Gaydy House! This past weekend the kids went to visit their dads so Tammy, Matt and myself decided to take a road trip upstate. While all the kids were sad to say goodbye to their Gunkle, we were like:
Until my lovely wife tells me we were bringing Gia along with us for our "adult" weekend getaway! Isn't she just precious!
Of course we were bringing Gia, I mean what would be a road trip of adults without a furry four legged dog that thinks she's an actual toddler! My wife remind me to leave my clothes out so she can pack them when she packs GIA's bag! This bitch! Not only is she coming on a long over-due road trip with us but she has her own bag. Isn't that fucking special!?
So here we are all getting ready for a weekend upstate with no kids and this bitch is in the back seat like:
For your viewing pleasure here is a little clip of the beginning of our road trip. We'll have more videos up later this week with the fabulous Only Matt Martin (@onlymattmartin), so check back with us soon!
