Home At Last...

Well, we survived our weekend trip to my MIL's. Nicole and Carson got along great on the 5 hr or so car trip, we stopped and ate some really good food in Waco on the way down there, and arrived aroudn 1045 or so Friday night. The girls were keyed up I guess because aroudn 1 am or so they were still giggling away.
Saturday first thing after they woke up and we went to eat breakfast, they headed to my MIL's next door neighbors house. They have a daughter a year older than Nicole, so Carson , Nicole and now Haley were running around, giggling and having a blast. We decided to take them simming at Landa Falls. It is a huge pool, and then ties into the Commel river, where they had a zip line, huge slide and stuff to go into the (cold) river. I like the idjit I sometimes can be forgot to even pack my bathing suit, so I just dangled my feet in the water... yippee. Sweet hubby offered to buy me a suit but I said no, I have 2 perfectly good ones at home, and it wasn't his fault I forgot to pack it, lol.
After the girls swam for a few hours, we were ready to go , so again, we headed out to eat at a buffet type style restaurant, and then went home. Chris and his mom headed off to Home Depot and Walmart to get a few things he needed to do chores around the house and left me with the girls ( Haley was spending the night too)... after they played for about 30 mins they said they were going to Haleys to get a board game or something for all of them to play. They cam home with her Karaoke machine... and wound up playing Diva Singer , and whatever else, lol. I just stayed in the living room watching rerun movies and reading my book.Heard lots of giggling and off key singing, but they were just having fun.

Yesterday's trip home was relatively uneventful. Got home JUST in time to see the season 2 premier of Army Wives on Lifetime. I am totally hooked on this show. If you have not caught it , you are missing a great show. If you watched it, and have followed it from the first season, OMG was that not SAD as all get out ! I was actually tearing up a bit at the end.. I so did not expect what happened to have happened.. did that make sense?

Anyway, Kelly Jean at Coffee Bean got her lapghan that I made her.. Click here to see it. She actually said it had been a bit chilly yesterday and she cuddled up in it..

Well hope everyone has a great Monday, I will writing more later, take care and have a great day!

Glad you all had fun and that there was someone to entertain Nicole! I'm so not a girly girl, so I'm hoping Little Miss will have buddies like that, too! I'm so jealous of the zipline, etc. It sounds lovely.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving me good warm thoughts! I'm hoping that my hiatus works again for me today, as yesterday was really productive! And my brain needs the rest!
I am glad your trip to the MIL's was good. I wish you had remembered your swimsuit, but then it sounds like you had a good time in spite of that! Stop by any time! I appreciate it.
