What a busy and fun weekend we had! It has been a while since we've been to WR to visit Joe's family, so the boys were super excited to go to Mimi's house!! They knew after they woke from their nap on Friday we were going to leave....so they barely slept an hour, jumped out of bed and said "okay, we are ready to go to Mimi's house!" Our plan was to go and see all of my nephews ball games but it didn't quite work out that way. It took us over 3 hours to get there because of traffic so we only got to see the last 20 min. of the ball game Friday night. Then it rained all day Saturday so all the games were cancelled that day. So we didn't get to spend the weekend at the ball park like we had hoped, but we found plenty of other things to keep us busy!!
After breakfast on Saturday, Mimi decided it would be fun to make homemade cinnamon rolls...yummy!!! She told the boys they could help and she really meant it. They helped with everything and had flour from head to toe!
God bless grandparents for having so much patience!! As much as I think I would love to have them help me do a cooking project like this at home....I just don't know if I would have the patience! It was a mess but the boys (and Mimi) did such a great job!!
The finished project! They were so yummy...between these and the chocolate cake...I may have gained a few pounds over the weekend!
After a 3 hour nap, we headed over to Lil' Mimi and Poppa's house to go fishing. They have a big pond in their back yard so it was a perfect place to take the boys. Of course it rained on us the whole time we fished, but we didn't let it spoil our fun...I just had to keep wiping the camera lens off!!
The boys were so excited and had so much fun. They have been wanting to go fishing for a while so I am glad we finally got to do that. This was really only my second time ever going fishing and I loved it to!!
All the boys lined up fishing...the only sweet girl to break up all this testosterone was inside so her hair didn't get wet!! ;)
Lane giving a demonstration about the first fish that was caught! He was teaching the boys how to hold the fish by its mouth.
The boys actually caught several fish! Can you believe Cade even touched the fish!!
Luke and I caught a fish...I don't know who was prouder!
Getting ready to throw the fish back in the water...all of the fish were thrown back in the water when we were done with them.
Cade thought it was so funny when the fish would flop around and splash water on him!
Posing with the catfish that Luke caught!
Finally we all came inside to relax and dry off.
There is that sweet baby girl!! She is so fun now. She is laughing and crawling! She has the sweetest smile along with a little attitude when you take something away from her that she is playing with!! :)
Finally the night is ending...we were all exhausted!
The last project of the weekend was making bird feeders with Mimi. They have a tree in their back woods that has huge pine cones. We collected a few of them and made bird feeders with peanut butter and bird seed.
We had a hard time keeping Luke from eating all of the peanut butter instead of putting it on his pine cone!
The finished project!!
Hanging in the woods for the birds to enjoy!
Besides the rain and missing grandaddy (he was away on a fishing trip the whole weekend), we had a great weekend!! As soon as we got in the car to come home the boys went right to sleep. They slept until we were about 5 minutes from home at which point Luke woke up....looked around, and said "Mom, are we going to Mimi's house?" They will be begging to go back again very soon!!
