Mike vs The Neighborhood Kids

I hope all of you had an AMAZING weekend. We had a fantastic time. My Mom and Sister came into town including 3 of my nephews and 2 of my nieces (ranging in age 7-14). As you can assume my nieces were amazing with London. He must have gone on 2-3 wagon walks around the neighborhood everyday. He loves my youngest niece Marra the most. Every time she walks into a room his eyes light up. She is just old enough to be able to understand that your have to "entertain him" not just play with toys near him, but she is still alot of fun on her own. She does her best to make him laugh, including one very entertaining song and dance.

Anyway...

My nephews were in town too. I'm not sure I have mentioned this before but we have a shit ton (yep I said it) of kids in our neighborhood. They are EVERYWHERE. Sometimes this is fun and refreshing to see all of them playing in the streets on your way home. Other times, it SUCKS! It never fails that they decide to play basketball in the street in front of our house right in the middle of London's nap. This weekend while my nephews were in town they had a huge pickup football game going. Of course the biggest kid of all...Mike decided to join them. He was out there all afternoon. To hear him tell it he was the "quarterback", so he wasn't really getting tackled or tackling anyone else. However with all of that said, Mike still managed to come home with this on his eye.
It's only a matter of time before the neighborhood kids come knocking on my door asking if my husband can come back out to play. My response? Only if he eats all of his veggies first.

While my family was in town we also made a trip to the zoo. Every year the Columbia Zoo has something called Boo at the Zoo. Basically it is just a huge trick or treating Halloween party in the middle of the zoo. It was really neat, and all of the kids had fun, especially London. Although I am now rethinking my decision to let him watch Twilight with me.

Oh my my my Mike, no other words. And London, I am glad you had so much fun at the zoo but you are no longer aloud to see Scarlett since I have read how young girls fall in love with vampires and ditch their family. I love you but you will have to ditch the vampire skit although you are super cute (way cuter then Edward if you ask me!) and super funny! XOXO

That's pretty funny. But make sure he cleans his room and makes his bed, and not JUST eats his vegetables. :)
