McDonalds Hamburgers

Michael and I are not fan of McDonalds.  Other than the coffee, there isn't one thing that we like to eat at McDonalds.  I imagine most adults feel the same way.  However, for a child - specifically my child, a McDonald's hamburger is the most delicious meal ever created.

One day last week I took the boys to get a haircut.  Off topic, Sam got the worst haircut imaginable. It looks like this. . . .

The appointment was scheduled for right around lunch time so I stopped at McDonalds because it was literally right next door, and ordered two (2) McDonald's cheese burgers for the boys to eat while getting their hair cut.  Finn was immediately hooked and exclaimed to all who would listen at Gigggles (the haircut place) that this hamburger was THE BEST HAMBURGER HE HAD EVER TASTED!  The burger must have been really good, because both children failed to notice that in addition to burger, they were eating a good deal of their own hair (because as it was being cut it would fall onto and stick to the burger). I really didn't think this one through all that well.

Anyway, now almost every day, Finn will ask, "Mom, can we go to McDonald's and get one of those delicious hamburgers."  He specifically asks for a "delicious hamburger."

Today is December 30th and the boys are home all day.  I decided not to take them to school so that they could spend as much time playing with their new toys as possible before going back for the new year.  It is getting close to lunch time and I asked Finn if he would like to get a McDonald's hamburger for lunch.  His eyes got big as quarters and he excitedly whispered "YES!"  He then whispered, "don't tell Daddy, because we aren't eating very healthy."

Sam built this fort to nap in.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
