I survived my 5 hour trip to the Oklahoma country this weekend!
I was saved when I found the charger to the DVD player right before we left! YIPPEE. What did our parent’s do without movies? I don’t think highway Bingo would last 5 minutes in my car:-)
Within the first few hours at Grandma’s, my son (yes the older one, NOT the 2 year old) stuck a Lego up his nose. Yep, and of course it got stuck!! WAY up there too!
Did I tell you he’s six years old and still hasn’t figure out how to blow his nose? He’s all about sniffing, not blowing. argh! I guess when you have something stuck that far up your nose, you figure out how to blow out pretty darn fast. Whew!!
It’s old, it’s over a river and it swings… what more can I say? Oh… yeah, that I got my second heart attack after the Lego incident.
We sat around the fire and had a wiener roast. Do you call it that where you’re from? We do in Oklahoma.
They had new chickens which the kids had a blast feeding. We laughed because the next time we come visit, we’re sure to have deviled eggs, egg salad and lots and lots of scrambled eggs:-)
Then my aunt brought out her guitar and we sang funny songs. Well, she sang, while my mom and I threw wood on the fire! You’d think I’d remember more of the words to the songs, but I really did not get that musical gene or memory gene for that matter:-)
This one might be my little singer, since everything she touches turns into a microphone. It was so cute watching her listen to her aunt sing.
It was really sweet at the end of the night when I overheard my son say “This is the best day I ever had!” Guess it was worth 10 hours in the car:-)
Hope you had a fun Mother’s Day weekend too!
