A Visit From Grandma

Jimmy's mom came down a few weeks ago to visit for a couple of days. We had a nice, low key weekend and we all enjoyed our time together.

Judy got to keep Mac for the day on Friday. They had fun running around the house and watching cartoons.

That night Judy took us out to eat! We went to our favorite Manor mexican food restaraunt, Ramo's. Mac drove...

Not really, obviously, but this kid LOVES steering wheels!!! And I mean L.O.V.E. loves them. He would sit and "drive" for hours if I would let him.

Saturday we hung around the house. There was a Karate Kid marathon on so we watched 1 and 2. We called it quits at 3 and 4 as anyone who respects the 80's should.

And then it was time for pictures with Grandma.
"I don't want to take pictures. I wanna do karate"



"Ok fine. Pictures. But I'm still not gonna be still. Cheeeese"

Later Saturday night Jimmy and I took advantage of having a Grandma in the house and we went to see our friends band The Duqaines at Ginny's Little Longhorn. My bestest friend Melinda and her sister met us up there too!! It was a great time and if you are in the Austin area and ever have a chance to check them out... DO IT!

And we did a little two step'n!

Sunday we all went to bible study and church. Went home and lounged around. Judy and Jimmy took a quick road trip down to Kyle, Texas but other than that it was a lazy Sunday.

Judy left Monday morning headed back to Arkansas. It was a great visit. We all had fun and can't wait until next time!

Water Works

I took Mac outside to play in the water sprinkler. He loves water so I thought he would love running through the sprinkler. It wasn't the hit I thought it would be.

Turns out he was more interested in the sprayer!

Hook it up MOM!

So of course I did. He played with the settings on the sprayer to make the water come out in different streams and pressure. He sprayed down the porch, the fence and the side of the house...

And then he turned on me!! I ran.

We had a lot of fun in the backyard that day!

The Great Escape

A few Saturdays ago I was trying to get ready to go see Jimmy in the hospital (yes still that behind on the blog!!) and I just couldn't get going with Mac running around so I pulled out the play pin. I was not entirely sure it would contain the man beast but it would at least give me enough time to get half my makeup on my face.

So, I found some cartoons. Yay, Smurfs! Set up the play pin and loaded Mac into it.

It seemed to be working. I made progress with the makeup and decided I better check on him since things were going a little too well. I snuck around the corner of the hall to peek in and check things out only to find exactly what I expected. So of course I quietly grabbed my camera and took some pictures...

While I was taking pictures I realized I was wasting precious time. I ran back to finish my makeup. I put on the finishing touches of mascara just as Mac ran into the bathroom to check on me and see how I was doing!
