Fun With MiMi and PopPop

MiMi and PopPop came to visit last weekend.  They came in on Friday and stayed until Monday.  We had a wonderful time!!

We just relaxed on Friday night and let Claire play with MiMi and PopPop.  She had the best time!  On Saturday PopPop, Steve and Claire stayed home while MiMi and I went out to lunch and went shopping.  We had a wonderful time!  It’s always nice to spend an afternoon with my mommy!

Ready for church on Sunday morning013

Lately Claire has started cutting her eyes at everyone.  This is usually followed by loud giggles.  I finally got a picture of this silliness!011

After church, MiMi and PopPop treated us to Neely’s Interstate Bar-B-Que!  It was de-lish!!  (You might be familiar with Down Home with the Neelys, a show on The Food Network.  Their family owns Interstate Bar-B-Que in Memphis.)026



To work off our delicious lunch, we headed to Mud Island River Park.142

At Mud Island, they have a scale model of the Mississippi River.  Claire and I waded through it.  Claire said the water was “icy,” but she wanted to play in it anyway.043

We had a really great time, too! We want to spend as much time as possible with our granddaughters because we know how short these baby days are. Time with the Nortons is always fun and relaxing. The Norton Cafe was the best food we had!
Looking forward to seeing you guys again soon.
