Party over here!!

June 10, 2008

We just booked the kids for their annual trip to Atlanta!!! My mother in law is so incredibly awesome! She not only takes the kids for us every summer, she even pays for the flight! They are leaving in five weeks for a 10 day trip. I don’t know what Tom and I will do while they are gone? Last year we went to Vegas- that was awesome… They are leaving the day before Tom’s 30th birthday, maybe we’ll just have a big kick ass grown up party!

They are super excited, it’s so cute they aren’t even nervous about flying alone any more. I remember the first time they went, I don’t think I slept for a week before they left! I was more freaked out than they were. McKenzie had her brave face on that day, and was really trying to convince us that she was fine. She was only 8, and it was only her second time on an air plane. Matt was 5, it was also his second flight and he was totally scared. They flew out of Dallas, and they would only allow one of us to go through security. Tom went with them, because he was the most calm about everything. He put them on the plane and waited at the gate for them to take off. After a few minutes Matthew came back up the ramp crying and he had to get him back on the plane. (that’s where I would have lost it) Once they were in the air they were fine, and they called from Grandpa Rhett’s convertible totally happy.

They have such a fun time every year. I’m so glad that Grandma keeps inviting them back! They stay at the house in Lilbun part of the time, where I understand they have a freezer with an unlimited supply of popcicles. They eat icecream for breakfast, swim in the pool, and cruise around in Grandpa’s Mustang. Then they spend some time at the farm in Royston where they visit with their great grandparents, drive around on the tractor, and play in the river. They also get to spend some time with their awesomest uncle Michael. I hope they know how lucky they are!! They come home totally spoiled, and very happy.
