After a long, hot Lubbock summer, we decided it was time to get away. So, on Thursday, Monica and I loaded Crockett, Braidy, Quin and Bowen in the car (along with a TON of other stuff) and we headed South toward Poppa and JJ's house. Chris and Ryan came too, they just started their trip several hours later than us. WHo can blame them for wanting to drive by themselves!?! The boys were so great in the car. They played, slept, watched a movie and made it about 5 hours before they got really restless. We stopped in Kerrville to grab a bite to eat at Cracker Barrel and rest for a bit. When it was time to go, we looked outside and it was POURING! We all got to run in the rain, which the boys loved. By the time Mon and I got some gas, a treat for the boys and Starbucks for us, it had stopped raining... Thank goodness! We were so glad to FINALLY make it to Poppa's house! The boys played for a little while and then we were ready for bed because we had a BIG, FUN day ahead of us! On Friday, the boys were so excited to run around with Poppa. By the time Chris, Bowen and I got going (every night is a long night with my sweet baby :) Crockett, Braidy and Quin had helped Poppa feed the deer and check the water in the pool. They really wanted to get in, but before we could get IN the pool, we went fishing! The boys were so excited to fish, but when we got there, it was the daddy's and Poppa that ended up doing most of the fishing. The boys were perfectly content playing amongst the trees, dirt and rocks. The Curry boys LOVED playing with the worms too... Not Crockett. Not so much. Afraid he got that from me. Maybe one day he will be a worm boy! After not so much luck fishing, and a couple of wasp bites for Uncle Ryan :( we headed home. Hot and sweaty. Now it was time for the pool!
