Our Weekend...


Okay...on to the fun stuff!!
So Jack got his 1st Thomas the Tank Engine track set this weekend!! He was super excited and so was everyone else in the house :-) We got him the "trackmaster" set so he could use the remote to control the trains and the other trains move by themselves....that was great until we realized how many batteries we'd be going through :-) We've already replaced two of the train's!! Jack loves to leave them on and just watch the wheels go round and round! I'm sure once the newness dies down it won't be so bad :-)
Thomas going over the bridge...
Hailey really likes this too! She gets a little frustrated when the trains fall off the track or run into each other. It just gets a little too chaotic when there is more than one going at a time. But I think they'll get the hang of it. Darren gives it two weeks and he thinks they'll have it broken :-)
See Jack's face...He's about to get ticked cuz Daddy's touching his Percy!!
Okay...now everybody sing along..."They're 2, They're 4, They're 6, They're 8...."
Just kidding...but seriously the song is so stuck in my head...the remote has it on there and Jack just keeps playing it over and over and says "Momma (that's what he calls me now) they sing it again!!"

Last night Joe and Bry had us come over to their gorgeous new house for a little cook-out. We had a great time and the food was so good. Everybody brought side dishes and Joe grilled. I however almost ran out of gas on the way out there. They live in the middle of nowhereville and my gas light came on so Joe gave me a little boost of lawnmower gas to get me back into town! Thanks Joe!! We made it all the way back home :-} After dinner we had watermelon on the deck...this was how I found Jack...he'd already had 4 pieces!!Hailey was dying of thirst...she'd been exploring their backyard/forest and was sweating like crazy! She had a blast and said next time she is wearing her boots so she can go in the woods!! FlipFlops are not the right kind of shoes for that kind of playing!
Piece number 5!!Now Bella (Bry's puppy) can lick all that yummy, sticky, sweetness of Jack's face!

We didn't get home till almost 10 and the kids stayed up another hour playing guess what....trains! (I was doing the research online) But once we got to bed we all slept so good and we all slept in this morning :-) But we had a great Saturday doing the yard. I mowed while the kids played and then planted some new flowers....Just a nice, easy Saturday. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!!

Yes, going to Nowhereville was so much fun. Can't wait to go back. Allyson has red mud stains all over her shirt. Better play clothes are a must for next time. :D

They look so serious playing with those trains, but I bet they had a great time playing with Dad.

Now I have that song in my head too.
