So Fortunate...

We have been so very fortunate the last few days to have my Mom (aka Granny) here to visit!! We've had all kinds of fun and while I wasn't great about remembering my camera the whole time I did manage to snap a few fun pictures!!


We went to Home Depot on Saturday morning for their monthly kids workshop! This month we got to make planter boxes!! So when we were finished we went and bought stain, paint brushes, planting soil and the boys picked flowers to plant in their boxes! We had such a good time building, staining, and planting!!








While we were picking flowers...I decided that I would finally plant something in the cutest planters that I bought on clearance a couple years ago and never got around to doing anything with! (That's right babe...I am finally using them!!) =) So I got some hyacinths.....they are gorgeous and smell oh so good!!




We did alot of showing Granny around the island...this is a gorgeous place to live!! My mom got lots of pictures while sight seeing but I, of course, forgot my camera. =( I did remember it when we went off island though! Granny treated the boys to Chuck E Cheese and we hit the nearest Harley shop to get Papa a souvenir!!





We also did alot of relaxing, watching movies and just enjoying spending time together!! I was blessed to have help around the house, help with the boys for a few days and a girls night out one night!! A couple of my girlfriends and I met at a local mexican restaurant overlooking the harbor and enjoyed dinner and drinks! It was a much needed break for all of us and we truly enjoyed our time!


Granny will be heading back home to Texas in the morning....=(. It has been a great visit and we have really enjoyed having her! Mom...thank you so much for everything while you were here! It all has meant so much to me and the boys have truly loved the time they've spent with you!! We can't wait to be able to see you again!!


So...not only does my Mom leave tomorrow but Colby goes back to school! It is time to get back to our normal routine and then some! The spring soccer season officially kicks off tomorrow with our first practice!!! We have so much fun with soccer....we have played on the same team for a couple of years now and truly enjoy all the team members. And this season we are lucky enough to have a couple of new kiddos on the team so we are looking forward to getting to know them! More to come as the season presses on....I will be sure to post updates and pictures! I am off to clean up for the evening and get ready to enjoy Big Brother!!! =)
