Grandma, can you stay for fifty-seven days?
Life has been crazy busy for us this last little while! We have been lucky enough to have my mom come and stay with us from last Saturday until Thursday. We are so grateful for her. She is a wonderful grandma and truly loves her grandkids. The kids were so ecstatic to see her. Savanah kept saying "Can you stay for fifty-seven days grandma?"
Saturday and Sunday we just relaxed and barbecued. Monday, we had booked a room in Mesquite, Nevada and couldn't check in until 3:00, so we just hung out in St. George and shopped until then. We also got to walk around the visitor center and temple grounds a little bit too! It was so beautiful! I miss living so close to the temple.
When we got to Mesquite, it was a scorching 114 degrees. It was nice to have a beautiful pool to lounge by and soak up the sun!(the only thing missing was the cabana boy to run errands for us and fetch us drinks~ha) The buffet was great there. For those of you who aren't buffet fans...man you are missing out. (who doesn't want to gorge on all the food they can eat, especially with things like prime rib, gyros, and fresh salads and fruits?)
My mom let Beau and I go out while she watched the kids. It was nice to have a break and just walk around and relax with Beau. Then Beau watched the kids so my mom and I could go out (score..double whammy for me!That hardly happens) My mom and I watched a live band and had a good laugh watching all the drunkards dancing. I was giggling so hard that I am sure I looked like I was a bit "loopy" myself!
Tuesday morning we just relaxed and laid out more by the pool. Beau was so nice to play with the kids the whole time so my mom and I could just relax and enjoy the weather. We got back and got a babysitter for that night and the three of us adults went to "The Incredible Hulk" (O.k. Loved it!!!)
Wednesday we spent the day relaxing. I surprised my mom with a pedi-mani for a late Mothers Day gift. And later that night we walked to the Green Show and watch the actors sing and dance!! The actors walked around selling "lollies and sweets, only for a dollar" in their British accents. So I got great footage of my kids saying it too!
We had such a great time with my mom! Thank you so much for coming. This is her third time in 2 years and we are grateful for family who takes the time out of their busy lives to visit!! We hope you had as much fun as we did and we can't wait to see you again in a month!!
