Family Getaway...

I love spending time with my family and when you go away together and stay in a hotel there really isn't much escaping each other! Here are some of my highlights from our trip.

GlamorGirlisms...
We were walking through Shopko looking at the sale racks. On one of the racks was a bright yellow shirt that said Nike. GlamorGirl says, "We should buy this shirt and give it to someone named Mike!" She thought that is what was written on the shirt. In her defense it was in cursive. But I still got a chuckle out of it.

Because we were away from home we ended up eating out more then normal, we bought lunch food for the hotel but we ate out dinner. After dinner Thursday night she says, "I have a stomach crash." I look at her with a funny face, thinking what is she talking about. She looks at me and says, "Isn't that what you call it when your tummy hurts?" Too funny that one!

Now if you were to ever meet GG she is a tell all. She would tell you her life story if you gave her a second. We were out eating and she tells our waitress, "We live in ---- but we are here because my daddy needs training." You could tell she didn't know what to say to that one! A little more information when we sat down and she was taking our drink orders she was cooeing over Peanut and she says to J, "I'm sorry. I'm totally not paying attention to your order because your daughter is cuter then you."


Here are some Redisms...
On the drive we passed some farms and on farms are cows and horses. Well he says about the horses, "Are those real? Yes look they are real their tails are swinging!" He is at the age where he asks a question and then he answers it himself. Then we come to the comes and he says, "I smell something. What is that smell?" We explain that it is cow poop which he thought was totally gross!

Monkeyisms...
We stopped on the way home for some ice cream. "I love you mommy, you are the best mommy ever!" Said while giving a hug. He is such a sweet kid. At one of the stops we made he says, "Can I go run around and give my legs some stretching?"

Peanut learned how to sit herself up yesterday at the hotel. I went to get my swim suit on and when I came back out she was sitting. I asked the kids if they put her up and they didn't. Then later in the day I got to see her sit up on her own. She is growing too fast. She is 9 months old today.

Oh yeah the kids DID sleep in...they actually had to be woke up 15 minutes before breakfast stopped being served both days!

It certainly does FEEL like your stomach is crashing, doesn't it?

MAN she is growing up fast!! Didn't you just have her? For that matter, didn't you just announce that you were pregnant??

I love that the waitress couldn't concentrate on the order... :)
