For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Weekend with Pop and Linda

We had so much fun with Pop and Linda this weekend.  They got here around lunch time Friday, and as soon as the boys woke up, we headed to the hotel pool.  We had a blast.  Sam showed off his swimming skills, too.  He has become such a good swimmer!  We cleaned up and went to The Grill for supper, and then we were back at the pool Saturday morning. After naps, Sam opened his presents from them.  He got new rain boots, money in his college fund, Paw Patrol underwear, and a Dory slip-n-slide.  He loved all of it.  They had a blast on the slip-n-slide Saturday afternoon.  Sean fried up some fish, shrimp, fries, and hush puppies for supper, and it was delicious.  Then Sunday morning, we met them at Cracker Barrel for breakfast and got in one last swim before they headed home.  Poor Luke had a nasty rash from his antibiotics, so even though he wasn't contagious, we couldn't take him to church with a rash all over his body.  Thankfully, it didn't bother him one bit.  We had such a good time with our Pop and Linda!

Celebrating Sam

We celebrated Sam this weekend, and it was really fun.  Saturday, Nana and Frank came over for supper.  Then we had cake and ice cream.  I had been asking Sam for a while what he wanted on his birthday cake, and he said a monster truck cake every time.  I kept thinking he would change his mind, but he never did.  I asked Ms. Peggy to make it, but I told her the wrong weekend, and it was too late for her to make it by the time I realized it.  So Sean went to Sunflower and ordered a monster truck cake.  Sam and Luke loved it. Sam even stuck his hand in the cake after he blew the candles out.  We were all so shocked, because he hates having anything on his hands.  After the cake and ice cream, Sam opened his presents from Nana and Frank, and he was so excited.  He got some new school shoes, which he has only taken off at bed time.  He also got some Paw Patrol figurines, a new scissor set, a flashlight, and a water painting alphabet set.  He played with it until he went to bed and insisted on wearing the shoes to church this morning.  Now we've got a busy week, and Pop and Linda will be here next weekend.  It sure has been a great summer, and we've got more fun planned.

They gave Luke a flashlight, too.  He slept with it, and he came in our room this morning shining that flashlight.
