Last weekend, Joe had his annual fantasy football draft with a bunch of his buddies in Austin…so me and the quadlings headed on down to Waco for some Papa & Granna lovin’.
Andrew- checking out the super cool knight in armor
My little kings and queen of the castle: Drew, Sav, Ben, Ethan
They had cool “Lego tables” that the kids could sit at and build things
HUUUUGE dragon made out of Legos! (Ethan left, Drew right)
Sav ‘aint afriad of no dragon (did you cringe, English majors?)…I don’t think that girl is afraid of anything! Ha ;)
On to the train station! (Drew, E, Sav, Ben, Granna)
Pretty cool set up of downtown Waco…my ‘ole stompin’ grounds.
It took me well over 30 minutes to pull the guys away from the trains. I seriously thought I was going to have to drag them out… kicking and screaming…one by one.
Enough of this guy stuff…Sav and Granna headed to Mrs. Moen’s neighborhood. (a neat section of kid-sized cars/kitchens/etc)
Sav- up to something in the garage
Andrew- calling in Sav’s suspicious activity.
My 3 little dudes (Drew, Ben, Ethan)…little do they know that there are some of these cars in big boxes in our garage---they have yet to be assembled for their birthday on Sunday! (they are gonna freak!)
Of course, my little quirky OCD baby (Drew), found a treasure trove of vacuuuuuum cleaners and was completely preoccupied for the next 20 minutes. Yep- had to carry him out, kicking and screaming. Fun times.
Sunday, Granna and Papa took Ben and Sav to church, while I stayed home and tended to 2 snotty, congested identical twin boys. Aren’t they cute?! All matching in their green? (totally not planned)
The next morning (Monday), the twins were feeling better, so Granna took the kiddies to their very first movie! (Well- I had actually taken Ethan for a one-on-one movie date a couple of weeks ago)
Toy Story 3!!! Such a great movie—highly recommended. I’ve cried BOTH times that I’ve seen it. (Drew, Sav, Ben, E)
Ahhhh…so nice to almost have the entire theater to ourselves!!! Gotta love that Monday morning matinee! (E, Sav, Ben, Granna, Drew)
The kids LOVED it! Captivated the entire time…so neat to be able to share a new adventure with the little ones! Thank you, Granna!!! We had a blast!
