After presents, we headed to the train station. The kids were excited to get to ride the train. Brody's only disappointment was that he forgot to bring the wooden train whistle that he has at home so he could whistle along with the train.

Here's Brody with the Pecan Festival mascot.
Barrett got a fire hat from one of the firefighters. He had fun playing with the hat while Brody walked thru the petting zoo. I was afraid that Barrett would pull all the animals ears, so we didn't let Barrett go thru the petting zoo this time.
Brody loved the petting zoo!
He thought this miniature horse was just his size.

Of course Brody wanted Grammy to play baseball outside with him, so she took all three boys outside to play. They came back once for bug spray and before too long the little boys had to come back inside. I think they were more interested in making Grammy nervous by getting to close to to the pool than in playing baseball with Brody. On the way back to the house Barrett made sure to point out every plane that passed overhead.
zerbert. I couldn't help but laugh when he leaned forward and gave Jayden a big zerbert right on his hiney! I'm sure he'll love this story when he's 16. In fact, he's already perfected the "don't you dare tell that story in front of my girlfriend" look. (see below) The mosquito bite over his eye makes it even more menacing.
Brody loves being outside and kept saying things like, "It's so beautiful outside today!" and "Look at this gorgeous garden!" (which was really a sprawl of wildflowers). Kids really help you stop and notice the little things.
Barrett, on the other hand, refused to look at the camera! (He wasn't really acting snooty, he was just watching the other kids...but it looks like he's being snooty in this picture! lol)
He finally found a spot where he could reach up and grab the ropes with both hands.

After they got it together, it was time to go for a walk! It's a pretty cool wagon. It has 2 cup holders per seat...and even has seatbelts! The seatbelts actually come in handy to keep Barrett from trying to stand up or climb out.

Planes are one of Barrett's obsessions. Every time he hears a plane or helicopter fly over he stops what he's doing, points to the sky, and says, "Puh-puh-puh!" over and over until you acknowledge him and say, "Plane! Good job, Barrett! I see the plane too!"
This morning Barrett was starting to wake up (Brody was already up) so I told Brody I had to hurry and took off towards my bedroom. I was going to get dressed for our run real quick so we could leave as soon as I got Barrett out of bed. Well as I was running that way Brody started singing a song (it was to the tune of "Ya gotta have faith"), "Mommy's gotta go poop, poop, poop, Mommy's gotta go poop!" I was laughing but told him that I'd already gone. His reply left me on the floor laughing!
"I better get up earlier tomorrow so I can make sure I'm here when you poop!"
Guess that's a boy for ya. If you need more "potty humor" read Megan's blog today.

After church we spent some more time alone (just the two of us). We browsed thru Cabela's and a few other stores and then around 4:30 we headed back to Tyler & Ann's. They had invited our family and Billy & Paula's family over for the Cowboys game.
Those of you who know Mike know that he's a Denver Bronco's fan...but I think that the south may be rubbing off on him a little bit. It may not happen over night...but I seriously think a conversion is in the works. Just check out our latest family picture...

Around 7 pm we headed back to the hotel to get dressed for dinner.
gift card) and a fun present. Mike wasn't willing to model the fun present for the camera...but you know me. There's no shame here!

This morning he came running into the office saying, "I did it! I did it! I did it! Come look Mommy!" I walked to his room with him and he proudly showed me his bed.
