Brittny brought us chocolate shakes from Chick-fil-a, yummy. The kids played together while we were able to talk and catch up a bit. They probably got every toy and game out imagineable within five minutes, but that is okay. They were enjoying themselves and not fighting so who can argue with that. Plus, I like when the toys are played with. When Burt got home the kids helped unload groceries, then he played with them some on the see-saw and Wii while we made dinner. We ate, played and talked more and then had to say goodbye. It was a wonderful time that's for sure and we look forward to seeing them again in the coming weeks when Brandon gets back from his medical mission trip. We also hope to be showing off a new baby boy to them at that time.

Saturday morning we didn't get up until after 8am. This felt like sleeping in, even though we went to bed late. It was nice not to have the boys ask for a snack or milk at 6am. They didn't really even ask for cartoons, but we turned it on so we could stay in bed a little longer. Joshua actually slept until almost 9am so Burt and Nicholas went to get us breakfast during this time. We set them up a little picnic on the floor which they thought was way cool. We finally got dressed and ready to go and left around 11am to head to the Aquarium.
We got there in time to relax and have a little snack and enjoy the beautiful weather. We then headed in for our big adventure. The boys were very excited. Joshua was fascintated by all the fishes and would squeeze himself right up to the windows. Nicholas liked it too, but wasn't as intrigued as Joshua seemed to be.
We started off sitting inside as there were no tables available outside. Even when we found one Joshua did not want to leave his cozy spot. Burt could see him from where we sat so we let him enjoy himself and then he finally decided to join us.
Nicholas enjoyed the giant icee.
Once we got them cleaned up from the pool we headed to dinner. We decided on a steakhouse so the boys could be entertained by them making the food in front of us, but when we got to the shopping center where it was and saw a Thai restaurant I was sure wishing we had not told them about the steakhouse. Thai food sounded really good and is much better in the Atlanta area. Oh well. And guess what, Nicholas was afraid of the fire, go figure, but Joshua was fascinated by it. After dinner we walked around Target a bit, picked up a few things and then headed back to the hotel and went to sleep. It went a little better, but we ended up playing musical beds this time around. We still got to sleep in though which was nice. The boys had me search for my Mother's Day Cards and then we got ready to go. For breakfast we went to Waffle House and then drove back to Montgomery. The boys slept most of the way which was nice. Since it was so early when we got back the boys played outside in the water for awhile with water balloons and washed the van down while I rested. It was definitely a wonderful Mother's Day for me and a nice getaway with the family.
