Jackson (better known as Candyland)

IMG_0375We were headed back to Alabama for Easter and decided to go by way of Tennessee. The boys love to visit Ron and Paula’s house and keep a list of all the things they wish to do when there:

Can we go to Dairy Queen or Sonic? Can we watch Spider-Man? Can we go to Snappy Tomato? Can we ride the motorcycle? Can we ride the four-wheeler? And the list goes on.

I tried to explain that we were only going to be there for about a day and a half and we might not have time to do everything this trip. But they came pretty close.

Our schedule went something like this:

Arrive Wednesday night, eat frozen pizza because Momma didn’t want to stop again, and stay up late watching movies while waiting for Granddaddy to come home. Fall asleep before he arrives so stay on the living room floor, except Gabriel and Momma who went to the trailer. (I have to say sleeping in the trailer with most of the children in the house is quite a treat for me. No one comes out to wake me in the middle of the night or wakes me early in the morning. Maybe Adam and I will start sleeping outside in a tent.)

Thursday morning: eat waffles and toaster strudel for breakfast. Ride the four-wheeler. Watch Netflix. Go to Snappy Tomato for lunch and have dessert pizza. Go to Sonic for ice-cream. Come home. Ride the motorcycle, shoot balloons with the bb gun. Switch to the pellet gun because bb’s bounce off the balloons. Have fried chicken for dinner followed by birthday cake in honor of Isaac and Stephen’s birthday. Fall asleep again in the living room watching movies.

I am not sure what happened on Friday. I slipped away to lunch for delicious fish tacos with my dear friend Barbara leaving everyone home with Ron and Paula. I came back in time to load up the car and head for Alabama, after we finished the leftover birthday cake. It was a wonderful time.Granddady and Sebastian IMG_0379
