Weekend with Memere & Pepere

Saturday morning Memere & Pepere took the grandkids to Wichita for swimming and fun!  No parents aloud! :-)  Actually we stopped by the hotel that evening for goodnight hugs & kisses.  Cody took me out on a date.  I wanted to go to Toys'R Us as they were having a huge sale.  I have most of my Christmas bought!-Yeah!!!

The 1st stop was Olive Garden for lunch.

2nd was the Red River Nature Center for viewing and even touching.

Lyndon was excited to see my reaction when he told me he held a snake.  It was a worm snake and it is actually so small in the pictures that I would consider it more of a worm.  Of course if I was to see it on my patio I would probably scream and holler and call Cody to come kill the 'huge' snake! :-)

Then it was off to Homewood Suites for swimming!

& pizza delivery!

Carl even lost a tooth!

Off to the pool on Sunday!

What a great weekend!  Lyndon even came home with a case of shark teeth from the nature center.  
Thank you Memere & Pepere for such a FUN weekend!

Lyndon CAN Water ski!!!!!!

We spent our weekend at the lake and Lyndon and Carl tubbed the days away!  Due to the lack of rain and extreme heat I made them wear nose clips which they didn't enjoy the first time, but they quickly became accustomed to wearing them.

We tried to teach the boys to water ski and they both did GREAT!  I was in the water on a tutorial raft to help them.  Lyndon skied 3 times for about 100 yards each time.

This picture is out of order, but we went to visit PaPa on Sunday after church.  It was great to see him.

Lyndon wanted to try to do everything himself from putting his skis on, getting the rope, and pulling himself up, but the wind didn't cooperate.  He was determined to continue trying but we knew due to the wind it would just make him frustrated, so we will try next time.
