A Night With Mema
My mom called me yesterday giddy with excitement BEGGING me to let the kids come spend the night. She wanted all three of them. My dad had gone out of town for the night and she wanted a night with her grandbabies. As you can imagine...they were VERY excited. When I pulled into my mom's driveway she was waiting outside for us bouncing up and down and the kids were squealing in the car with excitement. They had fun playing games, playing with toys, getting in the hot tub, and snuggling Mema all night in her bed. Frank and I went to the movies to see Marley and Me. It was not as good as the book- but still REALLY good. I boo-hoo'd like a baby. After the movie we decided we should probably get Hadley and have her sleep at home just in case she got up in the middle of the night. I didn't want her waking my mom, G and E and my mom being stuck with three awake kiddos. Luckily we did because she was up at 3am. She is working on two new teeth and they are almost in but not quite. I nursed her, got her to bed and then of course stayed up with insomnia until 6am. And then my Marley was barking at 7am to go out. Go figure on my day to sleep in. Doesn't it always work out that way??
Anyway, the kids got up and had a BIG breakfast with Mema and then she took them to the park where I met her this morning. The kids had a BLAST. They had so much fun and keep asking when they get to go spend the night again. They are already talking about what they will do next time. Thanks Mema for having them over!! They loved getting to spend time with you and Frank and I enjoyed our free night. :)

Here are a few fun pictures I took when I picked them up at the park:




I love this picture...not the quality..just the moment..Gavin kept tackling her down the slide and they thought it was hilarious:
