Saturday morning fun sitting in the toy box.
Mason was invited to a birthday party at the movies to see Minions. Brody and I dropped John and Mason off at the party and he and I went on a date. We had lunch at McAllisters with Batman and then went to see the movie by ourselves. Both the boys just love minions. Mason got to watch it with his friends and Brody got a one on one date with me. I think they both had a blast.
This is one of the only reasons I can think of why it stinks to be little...he couldn't keep that seat down.
After the movies, we made our way to the infamous Jerry's Sno Cones. It was extremely hot so it never hurts to cool off with sweets.
And I love checking off these summer bucket list items.
This was the only thing on Brody's list but I think he approved.
Mason got Tigers Blood Supreme. Go figure.
He wasn't wastin' any of it.
Thank goodness we beat the crowd.
Saturday night, John and I had ourselves a little date night. We went to a nice dinner and enjoyed a couple of hours of adult conversation alone. It was lovely....and we may have been in bed by 10:30.
Brody finally got the Snackeez he had seen on TV.
And we got our pool out again. John got the raw end of the deal here...
All that work and they want to swing.
Mason wanted steak Sunday night. Ya know, because we went out to eat without him and had steak. He said, "well it wasn't my fault y'all didn't take me". We went to our local meat market and grabbed a couple steaks and lobster tails.
We had never grilled lobster but it was easy and amazing.
Mason with Chef John.
He said it made up for us hanging out without him. He ate every bite of his steak and an entire lobster tail. Expensive date we have here.
Brody wanted to wear his house shoes this morning. I guess people are right when they say pick your battles. It just wasn't worth it this rainy morning.
We have had a busy few weeks so we are looking forward to our family beach trip. We leave Saturday and it cannot get here soon enough. A week of relaxation is just what the doctor ordered.
Speaking of doctor, John had his six month checkup with scans and all. Everything looked great. Always a little scary but also a reminder of how blessed we have been. And we are so thankful.
