As part of our Super Summer Challenge, the girls can earn extra coins by doing different tasks. One of those tasks was to complete a wood working project with their Daddy. Ava decided she wanted to make Kit a new bed and desk. While she picked a complicated project, I'll give her credit that she did not once leave her Daddy's side. It took them two days to build Kit's bed - all that is left is to stain it and put together the bedding.

We left to come home on Sunday and left the girls with Naggy and Pappy for a fun filled week of spoiling. They swam almost every day, had fun lunch dates, made cute culinary creations in the kitchen and watched a movie every night. They thoroughly enjoyed the week of getting spoiled with Naggy and Pappy!
Monday Grammy had her knee replacement surgery and the girls sent her pictures to let her know they were thinking of her...
Thursday they packed up to head to east Texas. There is a really cool roadside park that the girls love to stop at, so Naggy packed a sack lunch and they had a picnic!
Thursday night they stopped in Rockwall so the girls could have a sleepover with their cousin Isabella. Friday morning they had a cute tea party complete with décor and hats!

I thought Drew would really enjoy being an only child. It turns out he was not a big fan. He screamed half way home from the airport. Either he used all his good behavior on the plane, he was extremely tired or bored b/c the sisters weren't in the back seat to keep him entertained.
Monday morning Grammy had her knee replacement surgery, so Drew and I headed up to the hospital to spend some time with her. He was not about to go see ANYONE and clung to me like a magnet. I chalked it up to fatigue and out of his element. We went and had lunch with Daddy while Grammy took a nap.
But we had a long night and he definitely was not himself. We went to spend the day with Grammy on Thursday. I had hoped to do somethings for her but Drew was having none of that. So I held him and just visited with Grammy and Pa. Having a clingy baby has it's perks! ;)
Friday Kayla came to watch Drew so I could get some work done. He did pretty good for her and was pretty happy when Naggy and Pappy showed up with his sisters that afternoon. I finally decided he had a mixture of teething, separation anxiety and maybe a little allergies thrown in there too. None the less, it was determined that Drew was not a fan of his sisters being gone and has become a non-fan of the carseat once more!

Friday night, Keith and I ventured out on a date to Saltgrass. This is the restaurant we ate at on the night of our wedding. While we were enjoying a night out with no kids, Naggy and Pappy were having a movie/pizza night with the kids!
Saturday morning we were up and ready for more company! Aunt Megan and Uncle Kevin were coming! The kids were pretty pumped to get to see them!
We had a late lunch b/c Aunt Sarah, Uncle Robert, Brian, McKenzie and Reed were coming through town on their way home from vacation. It was perfect timing for a pit stop for them and to get to catch up before they all had to hit the road again.
Reed is about 5 months older than Drew. He and Drew are about the exact opposites when it comes to size and mobility! Ha! Sweet boys!
After our visit and extended family getting back on the road, the girls, Megan and I enjoyed an awesome pedicure together. Naggy and Pappy had a wedding to go to so Naggy begged off so she could get ready. The boys took a few generational pictures. Drew was pretty excited about that! :)

We got to Amarillo just after lunch. Naggy and Pappy work really hard to make traveling to see them easier. They had gathered up car seats for all the kids and hauled us around in two cars all week.! We are so thankful for their efforts! We went to our most favorite restaurant for a late lunch - Rosa's. Drew was properly appreciative of it's awesomeness!
Drew was not nearly as excited about swimming as the girls and "Jack Jack" made a brief re-appearance!
Our second day in Amarillo started off with the traditional yummy breakfast of Naggy's cinnamon rolls! Drew was a fan! :)
After lunch at another favorite, Buns of Texas and a bit of shopping for Drew a new church bag, we had a little birthday celebration for Drew at a cute cupcake place. It was yummy!
