Over The Weekend

I'm almost a week behind in posting this. Goodness! I've got to do better.  Nevertheless, we had a great weekend together.  I worked until 2:00 Saturday, as usual, then we went visiting the grands.  Afterwards, Larson bought some steaks, and he even cooked supper.  Even though the steaks turned out a little (a lot) chewy, it was enjoyable. :)

Here's a pic Larson sent me while I was at work.  It's so funny because Gentry is wearing his lion costume from last Halloween.  Ha!

Sunday, we took it easy during the morning, and then after lunch we decided to go to Statesboro.  We walked around and did a little shopping at the mall.  The boys made friends in the food court and we sat awhile while they played.  The only person leaving with anything was Larson.  I prefer to shop for myself and the boys alone.  It's just easier.

The boys enjoyed a show on TV together in the recliner.  It's hard to catch them still for any period of time, and these pictures were taken right before they decided to pile up on me over on the couch. :)

Monday was dentist day.  The boys had to go for their 6 month checkup.  They hate the dentist.  When the dental hygienists start brushing their teeth, they start crying.  I see so many of my friends posting pics of their kids being so good.  What's up with my boys?

Jubal didn't get a good report.  He has 5, yes FIVE, soft spots in his teeth that are potential cavities.  The dentist recommended doing the work in a day surgery facility, where Jubal will be put to sleep so they can do the work all at one time, painlessly, and without traumatizing him more than he already is when he visits the dentist.  Otherwise, they would have to do it in a series of three different office visits, with Jubal awake, and that would just be too much for him, we all agree.

I'm also going to have to pay close attention to the way I brush Gentry's teeth.  I have to give more attention to the gum line around his front top teeth.  He has some white lines around the gum line that they explained was decalcification.  I want my boys to have beautiful, healthy teeth so I will do whatever we have to do to ensure that. 

I had promised them that if they did well at the dentist, we would go to Chuck E Cheese's afterwards.  Even though they both showed out, we still went.  I feel like they deserved to go.  They/we survived, so that's something, right? ;)

After letting them play for almost two hours there, we left and went to Outback for a bloomin' onion, and some less chewy steak. Ha!  Larson had never had a bloomin' onion and he loved it.  Jubal is my onion eater, and he ate his fair share, too.  Gentry just wanted to drink tea.

We ended our day at Pet Smart.  The boys want a pet so bad.  We couldn't find anything we thought might make us a good family pet, so we'll just wait until we find us a kitten for now.  I don't want another puppy until we have our yard fenced in.  There are just too many strays that run around.

It was a good weekend.  We have our zoo weekend coming up soon.  The boys are excited about that.  We'll see what we can get into this weekend first, though. :)
