Because it is Mission: Atlanta week, I made sure Wesley was okay with our ditching the evening activity (he was) and Jackson, Philip and I waited on Pop-Pop to arrive.
Jackson was really excited to see Pop-Pop. Philip just couldn't understand why it wasn't Pop-Pop and Mimi. He likes it when things go together - like Emmie and RyRy!
We hung out around the house for a little while and then traveled to Canton to try out a Bar-B-Q place that my dad and I had been waiting to try since we moved down here.
We had a nice dinner and then Dad headed back to Nashville and we headed home.
I know it wasn't an easy day for my dad with 8+ hours of driving but the boys and I really enjoyed seeing him and spending a little bit of time at our home with him. Hopefully, next time he is "in the area" Mimi will be able to make it, too!
After dinner, I attempted a group shot. THe first one came out okay, but I wanted to see if I could get one without Philip's fingers in his mouth. I should have just stopped on #1!
|Should have stopped with this one. It is good - especially of Pop-Pop and Jackson!!!|
And Philip looks cute, too!
|"Um, why look at the camera, Mommy? There's something on that TV over there!"|
|"Really, Mommy, there is something cool over there!"|
|"Mommy, I don't care what Philip is doing, I am tired of saying cheese!"|
|And finally - Philip looks at the camera and smiles.|
Of course, by then, Jackson and Pop-Pop are over it!
