We took a trip to Russellville to visit Grandma and see my 2nd cousin Mason for the first time. Pictures of Mason are to come ( they are still on the big camera) but I do have a little video of the trip down with max dancing - yes he always provides entertainment in the car - and of Max digging through his new box of cars....story of the cars - so Saturday morning in Russellville with my Grandma.....not a lot to do - we get done with Breakfast and decide we are going to go garage sale looking. My grandma had not gone in years and grab her purse and was excited about the trip. Always an adventure. I hop in to drive, Mike hops in to give us directions and we have Max and grandma strapped in the back seat. Mike takes us a road trip to what my grandma calls " The other side of town" using his gps and an ad he found in the newspaper. We DID NOT get out of the car when we saw where it was but jsut my grandma's comicle remarks in the backseat make the trip worthwhile. On the way back to "the other side of town" we passed another garage sale....we decided to all get out and check it out. We found a box of cars - for only 10 cents each! Grandma goes to pick out 5, mike tells me I can have 10...I said 10? but they are only ten cents each?! Lets get the whole box?! Mike thinks I'm kidding at first, but 200 cars later and only $10 we are riding home with a whole box of match box cars....We definately provided grandma with some entertainment that day - and yes - I let pick 5 from our box

my favorite of these videos is Mabry. Mary Frannie was asking me how to spell my name...than I look and Mabry is at the end of the couch and starts asking Mike how to spell a name. I can't remember what name he spells - but it was quite funny how serious Mabry was being.
This is on our trip to Hilton Head this summer. For all you mother's out there, you know or soon will know...that at times it is difficult to go out to eat with your child. You try anything! This particular night we decided to sit Max and Laney together, thinking that their company will occupy each other enough to make them forget we are out to eat for 2 hours. It worked perfect and was so much fun. One video is of their Aunt Kelley feeding them applesauce. We were laughing so hard because it was like this the whole time they were eating and mike finally decided to capture the moment with a video. Little Laney waits so perfectly for her bite, and Max hops up out of his chair for a bite. The best part is that the applesauce was brought out jsut for Laney, but Max just thought he needed some too...than he kept it up! The second video needs some explaining too. It was Brittany's Birthday at the table and they brought her out a cake and everyone sang Happy Birthday....well Max caught on and after everyone stopped he kept on going - he litterally had the whole restaurant cracking up. He was so loud and trying so hard to sing! I love the expression on his face when he tries to hit one of the notes. They definately kept us entertained that night.

Matt, Mike's brother, babysat Max so we could head up Rogers to go out to eat at Bonefish for Jennifer Fox's Birthday. I was glad we could make it since we had to miss it last year. A time out with the Fox's is always a good time - Matt Fox even had little pink Happy Birthday place cards and put roses on the table. We all chatted and enjoyed some delicoius food followed by cake...yum.
