Day 2 at Casa Gran's

We forgot to take a morning picture today so the pictures will be just after we dropped the boys off for school. I needed to get some things from the store so Will and I headed to Walmart. I took him by to see the fish. HE LOVED THEM!

After shopping Will a was ready to eat and have a nap. He enjoyed eating broccoli and rice, followed with a bottle.  He was barley able to stay awake to eat!

When we picked up Finn and Sam we went to water the flowers. We also  transplanted Finns Bean Sprout.  Sam was very excited to show me his Lighting McQueen Car that changes color when put into warm water! 
The unexpected yet hilarious thing was Will finding a bowl and pulling it off of the shelf!  He was So in thrilled with the way it rolled across the floor!  We were laughing so hard at him.

Next week went to see Aunt Nellie and Will did not let up!lol! He seemed to be certain that he needed her walker! We had fun taking sweet and silly face pictures!
When we left we got Hamburgers at Culver's since we  didn't have homework and I surprised Finn and Sam with a new movie!  Afterwards we took  baths and went to bed. It was a wonderful day!

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."
