Last Day at Gran's House

It was our last day together, I knew I was going to miss having the boys here, but we were all excited in anticipation of mom and dad coming  home!

After I dropped Finn and Sam off at school James called and said he had to have babysitter so Will had someone to play with for the morning. I don't have many pics because, well, I only have two hands and every time I picked up the phone to take a picture  both boys tried to get it from me.
We played with cars, laptops, and stuffed animals. Cade was wonderful with little Will! He wanted to share everything he played with, he would hug Will when he thought he should and wanted to help him with everything. It was so sweet! Soon it was time for lunch, Will sat in the highchair and at everything I gave him. Cade played with Kate and Mickey while having bites of fruit and rice when he wanted one.

Afterwards both boys were ready for a nap, but I knew James was on his way to pick up Cade so I needed to stall two tired fussy boys. There was really only one option, bring out the vacuum cleaner! They both just Love the vacuum! It worked like a dream and my floors were clean

After Cade and James left I put Will down for a nap. He slept a long time and when he woke up he played with his love, I was able to get a picture before he saw me, it was adorable!

After we left school we headed to get haircuts . We stopped for pictures then went right in because we had to get to swim class.  Finn and Sam were happy to find that Giggles now has video games that they played while getting haircuts!

After we finished haircuts we headed over to swim class for Sam.  We were really early so I went in the swimshop to ask about classed for Will and Cade. I decided to let the boys play in the floor because little Will had been sitting a long time and was getting restless. He was having so much fun with his brothers, evidently too much fun, the lady that worked there reprimanded us so we left as soon as we could.

I had such fun with the boys and I am so thankful to have had them all week! They are all just my heart! What Great Blessings!

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."
