This past Friday, we headed to North Georgia to see the family.
Mom, Dad, DW, me and the girls were all packed up and ready for a quick, action packed weekend!
The girls couldn’t have been any better on the trip there or back. Maybree slept almost the entire trip. We stopped every couple of hours to feed and change her and let AB stretch her legs, too. Even stopping several times, we made great time, both ways.
We made it to my brother and sister-in-law’s around 7:00. We ate dinner and made our plan for the next day.
We stayed at my Aunt Kay’s Friday night and met up with Beau and his crew Saturday morning.
Hard to believe my nephew, Jackson, turns 7 years old in one week! His actual birthday is the 28th, but we went up to celebrate early.
The Fun Factory was paradise for the kids. Pop got them all “Fun cards” with two hours worth of unlimited games, go carts and $20.00 already loaded on them for spending. Jackson spent most of his time at the hunting game. He stuck close to Pop, who was his personal card holder and swiper. Caroline went for the ticket games!
Garrett & AB started off in kiddie land. She surprised us all by getting on the bounce house and slid down twice! Garrett wanted nothing to do with it. After the second time down, neither did she. It was HIGH and FAST.
If you can’t tell by their excitement, the girls beat the boys!
I didn’t think DW was going to get in and then out of that tiny car! He looked 10 feet tall folded up in that thing!
After a few hours at the Fun Factory, we were exhausted. I didn’t do a thing, but I was wiped out. I told my Dad I was pretty sure I’d already had three seizures while we were there from all the flashing lights, noise and kids running around. :)
The kids traded in their tickets for their prizes and all got a snow cone.
The birthday kids! Since Caroline’s birthday is in February, too, we celebrated both of them.
Jackson was so cute while we were singing, he sang, too, and said, “happy birthday to ME” :)
Krissy had all kinds of yummy tailgate type food and everything was UGA themed… even a very special guest. Aaron and his friends were so shocked and excited when a University of Georgia football player showed up! “TK”, who was from Habersham and now plays for UGA, came to the party. I didn’t get a picture of him, but he was there…My cousins thought AB & Maybree (who both have orange & blue in their DNA), needed a signed pennant. Of course they did this just for DW’s benefit. Ha…Too funny… They even had TK put a special message on the back for them. (He has good handwriting, too…unless his girlfriend wrote it for him…she was also at the party and is a soccer player on the UGA Women’s soccer team).
TK stayed at the party for a few hours and signed everything the kids could find for him to sign and even played football in the backyard with them. It was too sweet. He was a good sport, too, when we met him and of course gave him the chomp. :)
“Biscuit”, Becky’s new dog, and everyone’s baby!
The kids had the best time playing basketball, on the trampoline and in the tree house…the tree house even has a zip line! Krissy’s house is so fun…I took some pictures, I will have to post soon.
A big group picture, before Beau & his crew left, after a LONG day!
Sunday morning, we did get to see my Aunt Cindy. We missed seeing Uncle Ricky and my other cousins this trip. Seems like there's never enough time to squeeze it all in. We packed up that morning and headed home.
It was a good (and very quick) trip! :)
