Long Weekend With Grandma

So apparently I didn't take many pictures this extended trip--despite the fact that the "action" never ended.

While, we love visiting Grandma & Grandpa anyway, this trip had more of a "purpose." Uncle Brian had talked me into hosting a yard sale at moms with all of our collective family junk. So, much of the week I spent sorting, carting, hauling and pricing, and sweltering while the kids swam and were spoiled with sugar.

We did okay at the Yard sale. Broke $150, which wasn't bad since the entire morning/early afternoon we battled monsoons!!  We have the worst yard sale luck!  Seriously it down-poured the entire time, and I am thankful Brian brought his 3 canopies.

So, other than getting soaking wet, sweltering hot, and watching the kids swim, those two nasty, pesky drama-educing front teeth of Thomas' FINALLY came out!

Our little toothless wonder some how survived the ordeal. I don't think I can adequately help you visualize Thomas and losing teeth. He is terrified of blood, and he screams louder than any girl and at 2 points in the last 2 weeks, dude hyperventilated. No kidding!  This kid can not handle a lost tooth.

"Before" 

"After" 

But, they are out now, and the junk is out of the basement, and our Mechanicsville home (at least for the next few weeks) has had a huge makeover. Daddy joined us for 2 days and the kids are already asking when we can go back.


Thanks mom and dad for helping take care of the kids, and for spoiling them.

You are so brave to have a yard sale...especially in the rain! I'm so glad the kids enjoyed their time with their grandparents. J would rather go to my parents' house for a sleepover than Dollywood!
