A Visit with Granny and PaPa

After Hank and Elizabeth left on Sunday we had another surprise: more visitors!!! This time it was Granny and PaPa. We spent the day at Josh and Christina's. The kids had a good time playing in the box that Josh's new grill (Father's Day gift) came in. We enjoyed a delicious dinner of ribs and all of the fixings.

The next day we all had a yummy breakfast at the local IHOP and posed for a few more pics before Granny and Pa had to go. Hannah and I will get to see them again this weekend for Kennedy's 3rd birthday. Looking forward to it!

Asleep at the flight controls!

We picked up Hannah another airplane the other day. One that she could "fly" in the swimming pool. This isn't something I take lightly, to be a pilot in my squadron, you need discipline & training. Before we took out her new plane, we familiarized Hannah with the controls. She seemed at home and learned very quickly (just like her father). Then came the real test. We took her plane out for a spin, with an instructor of course she's only 7 months old! Instructor mommy "flew" her around the pool a bit, but when it was time to go solo something happened. It seems that after all her training she was too tired to pilot her plane. She fell asleep. She fell asleep in the freezing cold water with many screaming kids playing around her. Unbelievable. Noah Davis, from the Squatch Squadron, had no trouble piloting her plane. They must train differently over there

Shop till you drop....and then shop some more!!!

This Memorial Day weekend was a very busy one indeed with lots of company. Thursday night Aunt Elizabeth and Uncle Hank journeyed down south of the Red River. They are getting quite good at driving down all the way by themselves. They could probably even do it blindfolded!!!

Ricky and I had our last day of work and Hannah of course had her last day of "school" for the year. Hank and Elizabth ventured out on their own and did some shopping at one of the favorite places to go World Market. Friday evening we headed to Ridgmar Mall and had dinner at where else, but Chilis.

Hannah had a good time watching tv and playing with Aunt Lizzy and Hank. Saturday morning we headed to the outlet mall in Allen. Turns out we picked the perfect activity seeing how it rained most of the day. Hannah got fixed up with some very adorable clothes for the summer. Hank and Elizabeth even found some great deals.

On the way home we stopped off at Grapevine Mills mall to eat at the Rainforest Cafe. Since it was an hour and half wait (not too bad b/c sometime it is a 3 hour wait!), we decided to do what else, but more SHOPPING! Ricky got hooked up with some duds at Haagar. He is such an old man when it comes to clothes that I am glad he found something that he likes.

We had a nice time eating dinner amongst the jungle animals. Hannah had plenty to stare at with all of the jungle animals causing a rucus. The burgers were great and boy were we ready to go home and rest after all of that shopping!!!

Looking forward to your next visit!!!
