Family, friends and Sweet Tea

So last time I blogged about our trip to SC I finished off with our trip to Waffle House and the AC going out. I neglected to show this picture of the boys playing games at the movie theatre arcade.


The next day the boys and I went to the dentist for cleanings and the boys  {and I} had no cavities.  Woo HOO!

That afternoon we met up with a friend and her boys for an afternoon at Monkey Joe’s.  Kim and I taught together for a few years and she has been such a good friend to me over the years. Jackson took our picture.  Groovy, right?


She has a boy who is older than Jackson and one that is younger than Miller.  They had a blast on all the bouncy things.  Kim and I got to catch up!




They ended the day back at Michele’s with some 4 wheeler riding with Chelsea, video games with Luke and s’mores.  It just keeps getting better!




Tuesday the boys got their silhouettes done {I’ll post a picture of that soon} and we went to the pool.  Sadly on Tuesday afternoon we had to send Miya back to California.


I had a date with a bushel of peaches and Christy made her famous gumbo!  YUM!IMG_1663

Later that week I took the boys to the mall and bless them.  They were amazed by the automatic doors as we went in.  I do love that they live such a simple life in the Bahamas, but sometimes I feel sorry for them.  Like when they saw this Coke vending machine and asked if they could play it.  They had no idea if you pushed the right buttons when you put your money in you’d get a Coke out!


Jackson had to try on uniforms at Sears, so I thought I’d get them a treat since they were such troopers.  Miller said that his Icee tasted like brains.   Brains?  Yep, brains.


Miller had a friend join him in the bathroom.  They are old pals!


Friday we went to the park with my mom.  The boys liked seeing the fighter jet that is there and I introduced them to the Reedy River. 



It was really muddy.IMG_1698

I’ll blame it on the recent rains, but I have a vague recollection of the river being like that when I was young.IMG_1703

After a marathon trip to Toys R Us, we made a quick stop at Trader Joe’s.  I do not love Toys R Us, but I do love Trader Joe’s!IMG_1704

Later that afternoon we had another playdate with Kelly and AnnaKate.  IMG_1709IMG_1714IMG_1719

That night my sweet sister kept the boys so I could have a sleepover with my college girls.  Can I tell you how much I love them?  Thanks Terry and Charlie for letting us have your house for the night!


We were very well behaved but we did stay up until 2 a.m. dancing.  My goal was to leave it all on the table.  I think we were successful!

That weekend the boys, Chele and I went to the pool and just hung out.  Since we had been keeping up a pretty hectic pace it was nice to just chill!

There’s still much more to write about, but I have to get my boys outside now!
