Trip to Macon

We had a great flight to Macon earlier this week - the kids were total and complete troopers when we got to the airport and had to wait in a pretty long line to check our bags. There was a bit of a scare that we might not make our flight, but that turned out not to be the case. The kids were great going through security - although, they did really, really search Olivia's backpack b/c of the hand sanitizer that we forgot to pull out to go through the xray machines. Our flight was smooth, the kids watched a video together while I flipped through a magazine and even got a quick cat-nap. We didn't know if Cacoo was coming with Nanoo to pick us up so that was a special surprise to see her waiting for us.

True to their word, the spilt second we got to Nanoo's house, the kids ran to see the new pool. Bathing suits were donned and they dove right on in. One of the waterfalls is up and running, but they're still waiting on the 2nd one. They even have 3 stools in the pool like it's a swim-up bar. Hello!? How cool is that!? The rest of the evening was spent going back and forth between the new playground and the pool. Grandma Janet joined us for a dinner so we got in a good visit with her. No wonder McIver went to sleep without any trouble at all.

Then, Thursday morning, we went over to Grandma Myrtle's for a visit. Even though it has been over a year since they've been to her house, they remembered exactly where the toy closet was. It took about 1.5 seconds for toys and games to be scattered all over the den. But, the coolest, by far, is that Grandma let the kids bring a kid guitar and some wooden whistles home with us!

Then, we raced home, loaded up into the big, white van and headed for Big Canoe!
