Time with MiMi and PawPaw
We got a little spoiled the month of September. MiMi and PawPaw came up for Alex's Birthday over labor day weekend, than Mike's Dad came up the "bad Monday" when Mike had to go to the ER, Alex was sick, and my Uncle Mart died. He stayed the whole week to help out with the boys and for emotional support, than MiMi came up at the end of the week to stay another week! We enjoyed spending time with MiMi and PawPaw. They also took the kids some days/nights so we enjoyed some one on one time with either Max and Alex and took them on fun Daddy, Mommy, and Me dates. Below are some pictures I took during their visits.

While they were visiting Jennie and Todd graciously invited us over to their house to watch the HOGS game. We don't have cable, so we took them up on the offer and brought the crew over to Centerton to watch the game. Thank you Todd and Jennie for the invite, we enjoyed spending the afternoon at your house and eating the delicious snacks :)

When PawPaw came the "bad Monday" He actually even stayed the night at our house. He helped us with bedtime and entertaining the boys, etc. He did a lot of reading while he was here.
The last weekend they were here they came up for Max's soccer game. It was Max's picture day so MiMi and PawPaw watched Alex and Bekah at the field while we took Max over to get some soccer pictures.
After the soccer game we all went out to eat at Genghis Grill (sp?) It was delicious. The kids loved it and so did the adults.
|Me and Alex shared a bowl. Dairy free of course|
|The kids enjoyed watching the cooks|
|Can you tell the kids are done and ready to go?|
After we ate, we let Mike and PawPaw finish up the Hog game, and we walked next door and got the kids some icecream.
|Alex tried the Dairy free sorbet. It was delicious!|
While MiMi and PawPw were here they took turns taking the grandkids out to their land to spend some time with them. Max went first with Bekah so we got to spend some alone time with Alex. We spoiled him rotten of course.

Next up was Alex's turn to go to the land. He was so excited. Below are some pictures of him enjoying his time with MiMi and PawPaw
That means we only had Max now! We decided to go see Despicable Me 2. Me and Mike actually had wanted to see it for a while so we were looking forward to taking Max. It was a good time since Alex wasn't going to be with us. Alex has gone to several movies, but it isn't always easy :) By the way, I loved the movie, I would definitely recommend. It was pretty funny, both kid humor and grown up humor.

|Took Max to fresh market and he got a free chicken wing! haha|
|We bought him lego candy|
|Monday morning I fixed Max a special breakfast. EGGS and Bacon. Neither of the two he gets very often. Bacon takes longer and smells up the house, and eggs, well Alex can't have or get near so we stay clear :)|
|Max enjoys every bite of breakfast in the movie room!|
|Monday night Alex was still at the land so Mike took Max to Buffalo Wild Wings to Watch the Steelers Game. He had a $10 giftcard so they had some wings and fries, yum|
The boys are used to spending time together. Since Max was at the Land Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday....and Sunday we made the switch, got Max and gave them Alex, the poor guys hadn't seen each other in a while! Tuesday morning when Alex got home, Max was still at school. Alex asked for Max the second he got into the house. Well, Alex refused to nap, he was too excited and kept asking about Max. We finally had to go pick up Max an hour early from school just so they could spend time together. It was so cute how excited they were to see each other and play together. I think they ignored me for a good 30 minutes when we first got home :)
|Alex was literally attached to Max when we got home, it was so cute.|
|Finally Tuesday night Mike got off work and we were a family of 4 again!!!|
Had fun visits with MiMi and PawPaw over the month of September. Glad they got to come up for Alex's Birthday, Glad David was able to come up when we needed his help, and glad MiMi was able to come up and spend some time with the boys as well. Looking forward to a trip to Delight in October or November for Deer Season to spend time with them again!!!
We love you MiMi and PawPaw!!
