We just stayed for the weekend, but it was a nice break from reality and gave the boys an outlet to be, well, boys. My dad and Brian joined in the fun, reminding my mom and me just how outnumbered us girls are.
The main activities were wrestling, 4-wheeling,
The battling included the use of plastic pellet guns, leaving the old men injured before the day ended (my dad by multiple battle wounds, and Brian from a hurt leg). My mom and I just sat back and laughed at the chaos.
On our way home we stopped by and visited Aunt Ruth. She has the biggest heart in the world, and is behind many of the prayers that have gone out for Deacon. He was excited to meet her, even if his face in the picture says otherwise. :)
Later in the week Carson picked how we spent our afternoon. Imagine my surpise when he chose the newly built Chuck-E-Cheese by our house. lol
Deacon sampled his first pizza ever while Carson spent the tokens.
Here was his reaction to the yumminess:
Because Deacon no longer is wearing glasses, his shaggy hair could also be eliminated!
The next day the weather got into the upper 70's and Carson felt that was sufficient for SPRINKLER TIME!!
