Weekend at Nana and Papa's

On Saturday morning the boys and I met Mom, Em and her boys at Mimi's Cafe.  After lunch, Emily went to get her haircut while mom and I took the boys to the playground.

Afterwards we went back to Nana and Papa's house to spend the night.  That evening we went to the new Mexican restaurant for dinner.

When we got back home Finn showed Nana and Papa all of his wrestling moves.  We played every entrance song and Sam dances to his little hearts content.  It was so funny.  Before bed, Nana read the boys a new book called "The Book With No Pictures." The boys laughed so hard during this book.  

The next morning we went to church together.  Sam went to the nursery and Finn sat, so to speak, in the service with me and mom. 

Next we went to Sparta to visit Granny and Papa.  We also got to visit much of the rest of the family at different points during the day.  Sam gave a repeat perform of his wrestling moves.  My aunts told me that this was like old times sitting around the den watch me performing/entertaining as a baby.

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…


Today Finn and Sam put on their new Upward  uniforms. Sam took one look at Finn and said “Finn, do you want to be twin basketball brothers?”  Even though Sam said it with as much sincerity and excitement me had in his little body, Finn respectfully declined.
Instead they danced like ladies and gentlemen danced in days of yore. They looked hilariously awkward.
