Welcome Spring

We spent this past weekend in Savannah.  We shopped, ate some good food, and made a few more memories.  While at the mall, the boys rode the merry-go-round and the train.  They played arcade games with Larson, and even won a couple of prizes.

When we scheduled the boys' semi-annual dentist appointment, I wasn't thinking about it being St. Patrick's Day weekend.  Even when I made reservations at the hotel we always stay at and I was charged $20 more, I still didn't put 2+2 together.  I just assumed since they had completed some renovations, that they had gone up a little in price.

I found out at check-in that we wouldn't be getting our usual room due to the fact that all the party goers had smoked in the non-smoking rooms, and pretty much destroyed the rooms they were staying in.  We ended up with a much smaller room, for a higher cost.  Ugh!


We didn't spend much time in the room anyway.  The main reason I love this hotel is because of the pool. The boys stayed in the pool, with the exception of eating, until almost 10pm.  We had a fun time together, and isn't that really what it's all about anyway?

St. Patty's~2017

St. Patrick's Day fell on a Friday this year, and my boys were not as hard to get up for school since they got to wear their goodies, and were having a small classroom party.

Jubal wasn't that into pics that early in the morning, but I got a couple anyway.

Finally got a smile.

March Madness

This post isn't about basketball. Haha! It's actually about how busy we have been and are going to be the remainder of March.

This past weekend was spent going here & there. Saturday morning we rode in the Rattlesnake Roundup parade.  The boys love this every year, and they have both been in the parade each year of their lives.

After the parade, I had to go back to work until 2, then we rode out to the festival.  It was a nice, cool, breezy day.  The boys had so much fun bungee jumping, wall climbing, and pony riding.

The only picture I got was a selfie Larson managed to snap.

Sunday was a big day for the boys.  Jubal had a classmate/baseball buddy having a birthday party in Savannah at Chuck E. Cheese's.  We got up early and headed into the city for a fun-filled day.  I'm so thankful to live in a little rural town outside of Savannah.  I despise the traffic.  There are just too many people for me.  I'm a country girl.

Jubal hates the ride.  He said he was going to take a nap.  Yeah right! ;)

Gentry doesn't mind chilling out as long as he has his tablet.

We got there early enough that the boys could play for awhile before the actual party started.  We munched out on cheesy bread & salad until the party started, then we ate some pizza, too.

The boys played so hard and so long.  I totally expected them to nap on the way home, but they were too excited about the good time they had.  Jubal declared it was "the best day ever".

Finally got Gentry to stand still long enough for a picture.

That's the birthday boy in the Pikachu hat.

I think we finally made it back home around 6:30 or so.  The weather was becoming cooler and rainy, so I was more than thankful to be home, safe & warm. :)

Next weekend it's back to Savannah for the weekend since the boys have early dentist appointments Monday.  We always make it a fun time for them by staying at a hotel with an indoor, heated pool, and taking them for some fun outings/activities.  My favorite is the sushi at Myabis. ;)

Hadley Turned Five

Over the weekend, we celebrated Miss Hadley turning the big 5.  Gentry loves Hadley.  We all love Hadley.  Her NaNa, Shawnya, has been my very best friend for over 25 years now.  Her mama, Tiffany, was my "first baby".  Now, I hope we continue the love for each other's families through our babies. :)

It was a gorgeous, but windy day.  Tiffany had the party out at the park, and the kids had so much fun running & playing, enjoying the beautiful sunshine.  It was such a peaceful party for the adults.  We were able to sit around and chat, laugh, and enjoy hotdogs & chips since the kids couldn't have cared less about the food.  All they were excited about was the cake & ice cream.


The newest member of the family, Cooper

Hadley received lots of presents, and everyone had fun watching her open them.  My boys always love to see what gifts are given at parties.  They were right up on Hadley while she opened most of her presents.

After the party ended, once the sun started to go down and it started getting chilly, I took the boys home to stay with their daddy while Shawnya & I went to Statesboro to eat at Olive Garden, our favorite.  We were going to go see Get Out, but by the time we finished our meal it was almost 9, the movie didn't start until 9:55, and we were tired.  So, we decided to just go on home.

Sunday, we all got together and Larson grilled us some of his delicious wings, Shawnya made her homemade ranch pasta salad, and I made us some bacon-wrapped smokies & Moscato berry splashes.  So good!

It was a perfect weekend.  The weather was beautiful, the food was good, and the friends/family were the best.
