My Fake Baby

On Friday night Finn and Sam were climbing around on the bunk beds. Finn was climbing up the back side when he looked down at Sam and said "Sam, you can't so this - it is WAY to dangerous." Sam thought about it for a second and said in his most confused voice, "then why are you doing it Finn?" Michael and I got so tickled.  

Friday night was a milestone for Will - he slept in his crib for the first time. It was only for a couple of hours, but it was two hours longer than he has ever stayed before. Michael moved him to the bassinet in my bedroom and he slept until 2:45. It was a good night. 

We woke up at 9:00 pretty refreshed. 

The boys went to their Saturday morning donut place while Will and I drank coffee and colored. 

After the boys got back from breakfast Finn told us again that he was going to play in the NBA. He also declared that he thinks before going to the NBA he will probably play his college ball at North Carolina. Now if someone would just notify Norh Carolina we'll be made in the shade. 

Later that day we went to Grans for a baby shower. On the way their Sam told me how much he likes daddy's ninja turtle shirt. Michael has a green Ninja Turtes tank top that he wears around the house.  Sam explained to me that when daddy grows up and dies he (Sam) will get daddy's Ninja Turtle shirt. I told Sam that daddy would probably give it to him long before that. 

Will was a bit controversial at the baby shower. I heard three different people ask if he was a real baby. They thought he was a baby doll.

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."
