We have been doing family nights for the last several weeks and it has typically consisted of a movie but this past week we branched out into something new. We met Matt right after work and ate dinner at Dairy Queen and then we headed to the library for a finger painting event.
We drew on napkins while we waited for Daddy to come from work.
All together now!
The best part of Dairy Queen! I got a S'mores Oreo blizzard. Oh my mercy!
Mason LOVED his ice cream cone!
Ready to finger paint!
Sign of good fun!
Supposed to be sleeping but not so sure!
The finished products!
They had multiple activities using paint. It was a blast!
One day I asked Mason who he thought I was married to and he said "GiGi". I told him I was married to Daddy and he said "Oh okay'. Then I asked him who he was going to marry and he said "You Ma!" :) Just a few days later, he remembered exactly what we talked about. His ability to remember is the best. Smart little guy.
When Matt's parents were coming to visit, I told Mason that morning. He started running about the house saying "PopPop Mammy. PopPop Mammy. PopPop Mammy. OH YEAH!!"
Matt and Mason were somewhere one day and saw some golf on the TV. Matt taught Mason how to do a golf clap and it is HILARIOUS!
After Matt's parents left, Mason and I were talking a few days later. He asked about them and I reminded him they were home now. He said, "Yeah, home with their choo choo train." It took me a bit to figure it out and then I realized that he was remembering the train that they put around their Christmas tree. He had not seen that train since December!!! I asked him again to ensure that's what he meant and said "round kissmass tree." Matt and I were blown away!
My dear sweet husband taught Mason how to give a wet willy. Oh boy, life will never be the same. haha!
One morning, Matt and Mason were racing toy lawn mowers and Mason said "one two three four five six seven GO!"
That's it for this edition of Mason Says and Does!
Mid-August has just passed right on by! Let's see what some of our miscellaneous happenings were.
I've mentioned before that we love the library. We have been going once a week and it's been great. Each week, we usually check out about 15 books and this go around Mason helped me to return them. :)
We also stayed for storytime that afternoon and Mason loved it, as always. Maddox just chilled in his seat and listened to the music.
Fun song with our shaker eggs.
Fun School Bus craft for the start of school week.
After the library, we met Matt at CiCi's for a quick dinner and Maddox picked that time to have a big bathroom break. And guess what?! CiCi's has NO CHANGING TABLES! So, I had to change him on the seat and then Matt put him on the table to change his clothes. Good times.
One morning, we met some of our buddies at the park. It was a cool-er morning and we had a good time playing.
Once we got home, it was time to cool off and Mason said he needed to relax. This looks just like pure relaxation to me!
Big brother decided it was time to try on little brother's clothes. haha!
Sunday morning on our way to church!
A friend sent this picture to me of my mom worshiping in church and I love it so!
Sunday after church, we took naps and then we headed to the park and then to get Frosties. YUM!
I zoomed in on this picture and posted it on Instagram because this guy is my favorite. On Sunday evening, he was cutting the grass, blowing, weed-trimming and SWEATING! A man walked by without a shirt on and we assume he is homeless. He said something to Matt and next thing I know, Matt is inside getting a couple of t-shirts, and some water for him. I love this man so much and he's always my hero!
More play time with our bud. Yay for SWEATING at the park. We are going to miss our frequent meet-ups when A starts preschool this week.
