Break Time

Well what do you do when you get a break from work? Go see your mom of course. At least thats what I did during this years Spring Break.

I wanted to go. I thought about seeing if Casey could get off to go with me. Then I thought about going myself. (That thought went away quickly.) Then I decided and even said out loud to my husband, Well I guess I will just put that out of my head. So plan B was to get Avery and let her stay a few days with Nonna and Poppa. I asked Casey and we planned for that. Then the next day Todd texted me this: "Pack your bags we are going to Memphis." I said "What?" He said "Read it again" I thought when he texted that, it must have meant that I read it wrong. But I didnt. Then he called and explained that he had asked his boss for an extra day off which meant we could make a quick trip to see my mom. Then I remembered that I had Avery coming... So we decided we could take her with us. It would be fun. So we asked her mommy and she said sure.

We had tons of fun and Avery was soooooooooo good! I was glad Mom got to see her. And Aunt Theresa saw her for the very first time! Wow.

Grandma and Uncle Johnny had her tons of treats. So many that we really didnt need to bring any, but we were prepared and brought some of course.

We blew bubbles

Avery got to play with Bogie. It was so funny when Bogie barked Avery would tell Grandma, "Bogies Ruffin!" :)
She LOVES Bogie. Each morning instead of saying "Good morning Nonna", or Wheres Grandma? She would say "Is Bogie up yet?" :)
She loved chasing him. Poor Bogie.
She loved petting him!
She LOVED giving him treats. He had more than normal. I am sure of it.
She loved getting him to "Fetch" which she told him to do many times while we were there. Sometimes he did! She was thrilled.
I think she may love Bogie as much as Grandma does.
It was so great to spend time with family I dont get to see often enough. Fun Fun Fun.
I am thankful for the visit and grateful for my family. All of them.I am so glad we got to go and very glad Avery Grace went with us.

The pictures look great! Glad y'all had a good time! :) Johnny is too sweet to get her toys~ wish he could see his grands more often. Why didn't Theresa get to see Avery when you and Casey took her?
