Pine-ing Away

We got away for a couple of days last week. Josh had to stay home and work (bummer), but we convinced Katie to pack up her two crazies and the two week old and join us. My mom has a getaway cabin in Pine and I'm not sure why I'm not there right now... Miles and Scotty Amelia and Kate - it was so nice to be outside and not feel like your hair is going to catch fire at any instant. We went on many, many golf cart rides. Kate is becoming quite the pro at steering. This is pretty much all that Mac did... naughty thing... ... so I started a little game to amuse myself. *slurp* Amelia and I went on a scavenger hunt to look for toys that got kicked off the back porch. Grandma love Breakfast time...
... and snacktime Katie and the kiddos had to get back to town, but I decided that another 24 hours of fresh air can't hurt anyone. We went for smoothies the next morning and then took a walk around Pine to check out the shops. I found this sign in the thrift store - I'm really not sure "what" it's trying to say... We also found an old school playground... ... yee-haw! Favorite parts? Kate: "Playing with Amelia" Miles: "Playing with Scotty" Me: "Well, come on, it's gotta be the Stacking Of Things On A Newborn Game. Duh."

I love the new "stacking of things on a newborn" game. I hope we can play that at the next baby shower we go to!

Can Grandma Jan hold and rock me? I need some Grandma love!

You could totally market that game ... we could call it "Stack Attack??"

And doesn't Katie have 3 crazies? I know Mac is quiet and all ... but I'm pretty sure there are 3 of them :)

Um ... and we're free next weekend!

Oh my gosh, I'm totally stealing that game for my next newborn. I laughed so hard at the soda picture!!

Beautiful pictures, we were right in your neighborhood on Saturday - the weather was amazing!!

If I promise to let you stack things on me, can we have dibs on going with you next time?

Where is the cigarette picture that goes with that game?? Oh, and though I realize I am like 10th in line, I am ALWAYS free if it means getting out of the heat and getting to play cool stacking games :)

one of my pet peeves is "quotes" where they don't belong
