I finked enough already

"Go get in timeout and think about knocking your sister down with a bucket, and then lying about it."Twenty seconds later : "I finked enough already!"

Well, we just got back from an amazing weekend! Lots of crazy stuff happened, but my kids were their wonderful selves and enjoyed every minute of being spoiled rotten by nanny and pawpaw. Sophie loved making my mom laugh, and thought it was her duty to be sure that her nanny gave her undivided attention.
Sullivan was old enough to really enjoy the plane ride, while Sophie was old enough to know that a landing plane made her stomach feel sick. Sick in my family equates to throwing up. HOORAY! But, we had a lovely visit, and got to see lots of family and friends. My grandpa looks absolutely amazing, better than he has in a long time. I secretly think its all of the extra TLC everyone is giving him (and of course the love of his LONG time wife, my Nanny!). We had a wonderful visit with them, got to go to my favorite Chinese restaurant, and got to just hang out.

I will say that after a LOOOONG weekend in New Orleans, I had to come home in elastic pants!

Young love! Maybe this is an indication of things to come? Kate accepted the kiss from her new best friend, Sullivan (which she said exceptionally well for a two year old!). This is Kate, her mom Jamie and I have been best friends since early in college. We lived together for a while. It was neat getting to see Kate and Sullivan get to really play- everytime we see each other, its in a stressful, quick visit. But they got to hang out at the airport, and then play in the mall playground. The above picture is Kate and Sullivan trying to wrangle their uncooperative sisters (Sophie and Reese). Reese is equally as wonderful as her big sister, and I can only imagine she will be as sweet, but a little more rough!
Sullivan and Nanny enjoy the street car, check out the cool guy in the row behind them. Yeah, he IS New Orleans.
Sophie enjoys street cars too (once she gets to eat some fruit loops).
A three way mirror made for quite a few friends for Sophie to enjoy talking to.
Do you think my bow is too big? Sophie showing off her daredevil ways- yes she climbs to the top of large slides and then goes down head first!

Looks like a great weekend! I'm glad the kids enjoyed it!

We haven't seen you guys in so long. Come over and play soon! Blake needs a partner in crime.

I love Sophie's outfit in the last picture! ;) And that pic of Sullivan stealing a kiss is priceless...they should use that as an advertisement for something!
