Last week, Finn and Sam went to visit Nana and Papa.  They were gone from Wednesday morning through Sunday afternoon.  While they were gone, Will took the opportunity to rummage through some of their stuff.

Will is starting to take an active interest in books.  He loves to look at them and turn the pages, however, he does not like for me to read to him yet.   I can usually get only half way through the words on the page before Will is ready to move on.  I hope this is not a sign of things to come. 



Here, Will is reading one of Finn's old books - "Go Train Go."  Finn was a huge "Thomas" fan, and this was his favorite "Thomas" book.  I hope that Will starts to like "Thomas."  Sam never really got into "Thomas" - mostly because when Sam was old enough to start liking things - he liked whatever Finn happened to be obsessing over at that time.  For example, Ninja Turtles and WWE. Will, being much younger, may have a change to escape the wide net that Finn casts. 



Will and I also played in the tent.  The tent has three different holes to climb through.  When he would try to crawl out of one of the holes, I would stick my head in the same and scare him.  He laughed and squealed and had the best time. 



Pretending to be an only child wore Will out.  I just love his little curls. 


Here we have Will sitting in Sam's NXT ring.  I was getting ready in my bathroom and heard Will laughing.  I walk in to find Will perched in the ring playing with Sam's wrestlers, naked as a jay bird. Sam would be so mad.

Manhandled

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."
