Oh what a wonderful visit...We had the best time...the kids arrived Tuesday evening (the best birthday gift I could have gotten), Hampton's birthday was Wednesday. I made his favorite acorn shaped muffinsfor breakfast...oh we had to have candles. Josh and Katie took him out to Disney for the day and we kept Camden...everyone had a blast. Birthday dinner Wednesday night. He loved his cheeseburgers, french fries and carrots...and after dinner out came the cake...this little boy lives and breathes Thomas the Train...so what better than a Thomas cake. I don't think I've ever seen anyone enjoy a cake quite as much as he did. Oh my goodness we laughed and laughed.
Thursday was very fun, nothing better than family home for the holiday. Mom had the best time...she loved her time with Camden... Friday we just hung out all day, played outside a lot. Saturday the kids took Hampton out to the big toy store at Disney and we got Camden to ourselves again...Andy spent a lot of time on the floor with "his little girl"...when they weren't on the floor they were having serious talks...she had lots to tell him.
I didn't get much time on my laptop while they were here...Hampton loved getting on the Thomas the Train website...he is amazing on that computer. He was sitting in my lap and we were "arrowing down" the page and then double clicking on the pictures of the trains, to go to their page. I kept going up to the back arrow to go back to the previous page. He said "Mamie I have a trick...watch!" He pressed the backspace key and sure enough we were back on the previous page...OMG! Now most of you probably already knew that, but I had no clue. Amazing! Can't wait to see what he teaches me next visit.
They left Sunday morning. Hampton was coming down with Josh's cold on Saturday...yes, I came down with it Monday afternoon and Andy got it Monday night. We're both dragging around here, sore throat, sneezing, blowing noses and coughing...but I wouldn't trade the time we had with the kids for anything.
