Elephants kept us sane

This weekend, Trish, Frankie, Me and to some extent, Vlad were essentially evicted from our abode. We had showings at 9 am Saturday, 10 pm on Sunday and an open house on Sunday smack dab during Frankie's naptime. So, we kept busy, and kept busy, and kept running from place to place keeping ... busy. By 4 pm yesterday, while Frankie was busy on sitting on my lap, we crashed and napped. The only thing keeping us going was Frankie's energetic version of the Elephant Song:

One Elephant Went Out to Play
One elephant went out to play
Upon a spider's web one day.
He had such enormous fun (arms stretched out and big emphais on enormous)
That he called for another elephant to come.
(Repeat, with 2, 3, 4 and 5 elephants.)

Frankie sings it in reverse starting with 5 elephants. When it gets to one elephant the web breaks and the song is done. It was the best part of our weekend.
