Keeps Us Busy
Nana and Grandad came to stay this past weekend. We had a big time showing this Red Raider all that Aggieland has to offer...you know the really important things like Freebirds burritos and kolaches! Just kidding. We did take them to Lake Somerville which is about 30 miles west of here. It was nice, a bit rocky for my taste. Andrew loved it. He spent the majority of his time throwing rocks into the water. He thought that was great!
If Andrew was not throwing rocks, Josh was throwing him. For someone who is quite apprehensive with new things, Andrew took to the water with no problems. Josh on the other hand had some problems with his footwear. Since it was so rocky, you had to wear your flip-flops or you just could not bear to walk. With all the force of walking through the water, Josh not only broke his flip-flops, he also broke mine!!! (This story would have been a whole lot more funny if we still called them thongs like we did when I was a kid!).
Miss Ainsley on the other hand spent her first trip to the lake sunning herself in the shade! Rough life I tell you...look at those feet! :) Since Josh broke my shoes, I did about the same thing.
Look out A-Rod, Andrew has a new passion. If he is not swinging a golf club, he is swinging a baseball bat. His Poppop and Nana got him a tee and his first metal Louisville Slugger bat. Andrew is in love. As soon as Josh walks into the house from work, Andrew is asking if he can come play baseball. You know the kid is desperate if he asks me to come out and play. He is the batter and we are the "glovers" as Andrew calls us...you know the one who stands out in the yard and catches the balls. :)
Over the weekend we learned Ainsley has a hidden talent. As you can see in the video, she is quite the rockin' little mama. She can get herself going pretty good on that ottoman. Let's hope the talent stops with ottomans and does not progress to electric bulls. We will just keep her away from Billy Bobs in Fort Worth for a while! :)
