Mom & Dad Visit

My parents came into town for about 5 days last week, and it was so much fun! I was kind of bummed that I was only able to take one full day off of work while they were here (besides Sunday). But we did a little shopping that day, which is always a good time! Here are a few fun pics from when they were here.

Here's Lincoln Nicholas with Nicholas himself
here's Jack and his Grammy eating popcorn and watching a movie
A funny candid shot
One of my favorite pictures!
Jack with his Papa (he keeps asking about you, dad!)
We got our own popcorn maker while they were here, and Jack loves it!

And Lincoln thought it was so funny the other day when we kept saying, "Bang bang bang bang bang!"
The clincher was that the night before they left, they tried taking us to Texas Roadhouse. We didn't even get dinner out to us by the time both kids were screaming, and Jack screamed at the top of his lungs the entire way home. WOW. That was stressful! Thanks mom and dad, for a great time! We loved having you!

Ode to Redbox Renters


Dear annoying Redbox renter,
I have found myself behind you many times. I know you see me, patiently waiting for my turn at the Redbox, as I have subtly made myself known by talking to my 2-year old, loud enough for you to hear us. I don't mind that I have to wait a minute, but it's just rude for you to scroll through the entire list of movies currently in the redbox, and check out the info on each one. You can clearly see the list of movies off to the side, and should have had a short list of these in mind before approaching the screen. It has now been five minutes, and I'm holding my 27 lb. toddler, who is on the verge of a meltdown at any moment. Meanwhile, the line of one (me) has now grown to four and five people, all waiting for you to make up your mind. Next time you visit a redbox, step aside and choose a movie before you waste my time.

Sincerely,
Mom on a Mission
