Big WWEend

Let's just say that Uncle David is awesome! On Friday Gran picked the boys from school. Michael and I had a really busy weekend, so the boys spent the night with Gran.  Their first stop was Uncle David's house where they geared up!

Sam as John Cena

Finn as Roman Reigns

Here they are with their "Money in the Banks." 

My big weekend started with meeting Grandad, Gigi, Lauren, Ryan and Robyn at Demos for a "carbo-load."  Dad and Lauren were in town for the Music City Marathon.  They spent the night at our house while Michael and I went to Dustin and Elena's for David Platt's Secret Church. 

The "Secret Church" streaming event was awesome.  Michael and I left around 2:00 a.m. and it was still going strong. 

 We left early because I scheduled to get up 5:00 a.m. and go downtown to cheer Dad and Lauren on in the half marathon. 

This is dad and Lauren at the start.  They were in coral 31. 

Right after they passed up, we quickly checked the map and Gina, Ryan and Robyn and I ran to the next spot where we thought me might see them again. We tried to see them at the 10 mile mark.  We stood at the bridge over 11th Avenue for an hour and waited for them to come by.  Somehow or another we missed them.  Then we had to book it back to L.P. Field to catch the finish. Overall we saw them 3 times on the route and at the finish line. 

They did it!

Afterwards we celebrated with a Pharmacy Burger.

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."
