This past week was full of activities. With Granny’s passing, Red and I were off to SC to spend lots of time with extended family, and the days at home were filled with other family birthdays, field trips, meetups and dinners out. And some of it was far away. Remember that time I told Hubs we didn’t have to go to the orchard to have family time and that I was super happy grabbing moments here and there for my memory-scrapbook? Well, other members of his family convinced us to go to the corn maze to celebrate, and it was HOOOOOOOOT. Thank goodness that Cagle’s farm had frozen lemonades to drink right at the exit – these people are smart. We got two to share and dug around in the corn bins and generally cooled off in the shade. The maze was super hard, and the 8 year old birthday girl, my niece, decided to lead us on the long route for more challenging fun. We got so lost that the farm hand had to lead us to the lookout tower so we could get ourselves out!
Then it was off to the Varsity for lunch, back to Nana and Pop’s house for presents, cake and ice cream, and finally to the pool to swim (Red was begging for it all day). Weekend fun continued at Medieval Times, where we brought a few family and lots of friends with us to help cheer the Red and Yellow Knight. It was Red’s second trip, and he loved it just as much as the first. Word to parents bringing children: If you choose an earlier showtime, and know whether or not your child truly needs their own seat, it’s totally a relaxed place for family. Our first trip we sprung for the $5 flag and keep bringing it back every time… it saves on souvenirs and keeps Red very happy. We always have a great time!
See that grin? Nothing like “Horseys running THERE!” and “My Princess!” to keep him happy for a few hours. He even has started eating some of the fare at Medieval Times Atlanta, which makes this mama of a picky eater very happy.
What did your family do together the past week or two? Did you travel anywhere?
