Monday Night RAW

This past Monday, Michael, Finn, Sam, Uncle James and I went to Monday Night Raw at Bridgestone Arena!  I have been looking forward to this for weeks.  We all wore our WWE gear - Michael wore Bobby Roode, I wore Braun Stroman, Finn wore Roman Reigns, Sam wore John Cena, and James wore Seth Rollins.

We all met at James and Chelsea's house around 4:00 to pick up James.  Then we went downtown to park and get a quick bite to eat at Jimmy John's.



After supper we walked down to Bridgestone Arena.  


About the time I took this picture, a side walk preacher started yelling verbatim, "when will you wicked parents stop taking your children into the den of inequity."


We arrived at 6:00.  The pre-show started at 6:30 so we had a few minutes to find our seats and get situated. 



Finn and I were trying to do the Ws.  Sam didn't get the message. 



At 6:30, the pre-show started.  They showed some WWE promotional videos on the big screen.  Then RTruth came out to wrestle Curt Hawkins.  Then Heath Slater and Rhino fought Anderson and Gallows.


At 7:00 Raw started. It was so exciting. 





The first person out was Dean Ambrose.  The boys lost their minds. I have never seen freak out harder.









Enzo.  Finn and Sam were really excited about Enzo and Big Cass.




Big Show!



Doing the "Finn Balor" entrance.

















Sam doing "Roman Reigns"











The boys laughing at Samoa Joe's music.


























This really was one of they great nights.  The boys did so good - even though they were us so late.  I particularly enjoyed my time with Sam.  I sat on the end next to Sam so I spent most of the night with him.  He was in rare form with this dancing and yelling and general excitement.

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."
