Baby Henry

On Monday at 3:35 in the morning we got a text from Uncle David saying that he and Sharon were heading to Vanderbilt.  I had trial that day so Gran kept me updated via text message to Sharon's progress.  Around 4:00 p.m. Gran sent a text saying that Henry was here!

After Michael and I both got home from work we loaded up in the car and went to meet Henry.  We found David, Sharon and Henry resting peacefully in their hospital room.  Finn and Sam were a little nervous at first.  Finn got tickled at Henry's noises - he thought that he sounded like a duck. Finn warmed up to Henry pretty quickly, but Sam was less impressed.

The evening became infinitely more interesting for the boys when Uncle David pulled out his WWE belt.  It was at that point that we realized that David hadn't seen the main event.  Despite our repeated attempts to instruct Finn to NOT tell David who won, we had no confidence that he could keep that secret.  Luckily, Finn dug down deep and didn't spill the beans.

Henry is so precious! He was the result of multiple hours of natural labor and 3 hours of pushing! Sharon did a great job - and David was, from what I hear, a pretty good helper. 

After leaving the hospital we decided to go to Five Guys for burgers.  The boys were pretty keyed up and didn't sit still for a second. 

We had the entire back half of the restaurant to ourselves so Finn took the opportunity to display his wrestling moves.

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."
