Brunch & Flower Gardening

Grandma and Grandma left this morning (Saturday) for Hawaii! My dad had a family party there with all his siblings. The kids were so sad when they woke up and they weren't there. Rori took us to brunch at the Cracker Barrel. The kitchen was so slow and it was a bit stressful to keep the 5 kids entertained but we did it!

Michael- I had to bribe them with a treat after if they were good. They all picked ring pops.

 
Rori's face here about sums up her experience with us!

While the kids were napping I snuck off and did some quick retail therapy. The two girls woke up while Rori was getting ready for work and she plopped them on her bed. This is where I found them when I got home.


 
When everyone woke up we headed to Lowes to get flowers for Grandma's Mother's Day present. The kids love Lowes. They have the driving carts and the big lumber carts. I usually load them on the lumber carts and they love it. After Lowers we went to Rori's work and picked up the pizza she ordered for us. Her boss spoiled the kids and gave each of the kids a huge lollipop! We headed home to eat and plant flowers.

Grandpa's Horses

After we went to the splash park we napped and then met Andy (my brother) at the Dixie High schools football field. We let the kids run around for a little bit.

Michael and Jaileigh were holding hands until I took the picture.

We then went home to get Grandpa Pops. We went to see the horses. These are really Grandpa's friends horses but the kids think that they are Grandpa's.
Annie got to go first.
