Vacay at Cissy's

Josh took a short overnight with some old friends this weekend. So, the little boys and I took the opportunity to go visit some sweet friends who live in South Carolina. We left Thursday afternoon and made the Todd's house our first stop. Chandler & Josh were co-chief residents and we were neighbors for three years in Greenwood. Sara and I were pregnant with our first children at the same time, and their oldest, Noah, is about 6 weeks older than Jack. We don't get to see each other often because schedules are so hectic and both families have since added their second children. But, it's so great to be able to pick up where we left off and catch right back up. Jack and Noah acted like old friends, even though it's been almost a year since they last saw each other. I guess they had a lot in common, Lightning McQueen, Thomas, etc.

Later that evening we headed to my friend Kristie's, who is affectionately called Cissy, by all the kiddos. As always, she rolled out the red carpet. Picking up some of Jack's favorite toys (to add to the enormous permanent collection she has at her house) and cute matching pjs for the boys. Sam even got his very own Lightning McQueen car. Cissy knows how much brothers like to share their new toys, a.k.a. don't like to share. Jack could hardly wait to jump in the pool, but we convinced him to settle for watching one of the hundreds of movies in Cissy's collection and saving our swim for Friday.

Kristie and I enjoyed catching up, and I know she enjoys having me visit...but it seems like she probably just puts up with me so she can have the boys there. Cissy is her name and spoiling is her game. She wants to make sure the kids enjoy their time at her house...and boy do they! Movies, swimming, fun lunches by the pool, playground, power wheels and trips for ice cream...what's not to love. Mission accomplished, Cissy! Jack has already started planning his return trip, "can we go to Cissy's house in 6 days?"

Out like a light...
a little bit of ice cream goes a long way
think he's comfortable??

everything is fun at Cissy's...even hiding under a stool!
