he will sit still in Grandaddy K's lap but not for anyone else usually!
On the way out of town, we had to swing by WalMart and pick up a half gallon of milk for pepito and while we there decided to go ahead and get him some chicken fingers and potato fries from their deli since we were hoping he would fall asleep before we stopped north of atlanta to get dinner for us. Surprisingly super delicious by the way - and cheap! The Snack Pack (3 fingers and 10 fries) was only $3 and it was MORE than enough food - for me and for William. Well, I get him to eat one finger and maybe a fry or two and then 20 minutes into the drive up, we weren't even to PINE MOUNTAIN YET!! - he threw up. I'm fairly certain it's because he stuck his finger down his throat - his new favorite thing to do. He thinks it's hilarious. Crazy kid. So we pull over and I pull a crazy bad mommy stunt and change his clothes on the side of the road. My hubs is going to kill me for putting that out there, but it happened, and I'm an honest kind of person, so there you have it. And quite frankly - if we hadn't chosen the side of the road it would've been four to five miles smelling throw up until we found an exit that may or may not have had a gas station to safely pull into. Just saying. William didn't mind anyhow - he enjoyed watching the cars speed by. Luckily, everyone seemed to be courteous and get in the far lane, so we weren't in any real danger even though Sam said it made him crazy nervous to have his wife and son hanging out at the back of the car on the highway. Ok - that's enough of that. He threw up. It was less than wonderful.
he was very intrigued by all of Aunt Lainey's fun faces
We actually made really great time up to the lake - under 4 hours, including a stop for a Publix Deli sub. I got a pack of apples because the one chicken finger filled me up quite nicely, but I did grab an InStyle to make up the money I was "saving" by not getting a Premium sandwich. ha. I don't think William slept at all. I distinctly remember him being awake at Publix, and I doubt he fell asleep for the rest of the trip but who knows. That's what I get for writing about holiday trips 7 days after they happened. bad blogger.
I think there must've be a secret color coordination phone call - too cute
Daddy and Sara came up midday Saturday. And really, I don't feel like going into a whole lot of detail. Mostly because nothing as momentous as throwing up in the car happened, which is awesome; it was just a good family low key time. I think we watched the Georgia game but got bored with it because we weren't playing anyone that made the game interesting - so there was a lot of football flipping. I don't think we went swimming until Sunday. William liked the lake but it was kinda chilly - so he didn't stay in too long and was only in the water for about five minutes on Monday because he got cold so quickly. Daddy & Sara made pizza on Saturday and that was super yummy as always. My brother Kalin and his girlfriend Lainey came up on Sunday. Fun fun. It was Lainey's birthday. We ate pasta on the boathouse and then drank beer/wine and talked about silly things. I'm pretty sure they think I"m crazy, but they're allowed to, they're family.
Monday on the boathouse before we left - see his boo boo... :(
All in all - it was a wonderful mini-vacation and I'm secretly hoping that the lakehouse never sells. Atleast not anytime soon - sorry Mimi! ;)
at home this week - he's just too cute not to take pictures all the time;
and YES, that IS a Christmas bib - no judging - haha
Our camera was acting all poopy, so most of the pics are on Daddy's camera and I don't have those yet. There are some great ones of William at the waterfall - Minnehaha. Great name right?! Good times. William did get his first REAL booboo at the waterfall though. He wanted to play with rocks on a slight incline and fell and scraped his forehead on the big rock he was playing on. Poor baby. Still has a scab. He screamed and cried a little bit but he shook it off pretty quickly when his Grandaddy picked him up and he saw me and Sam coming down the hill from the waterfall. Sweet boy.
super confused why this new bowl won't come off the tray...
Oh - I must mention the weather. It was so lovely. AND COOL!! It actually felt like fall. As soon as I figure out a way to be able to live up there without having to pay bills and life in general, we are moving. :)
in his secret hideout ;)
