Braden, Mason and I made a weekend trip to Mountain Home. Blake drove us to Springfield, where we met Becki and Brandon for lunch. Becki drove us back to Mountain Home, while Blake headed over to St. Louis for some guy time! On Friday night Braden, Becki and I ran to Wal-Mart. Ann & Kenneth of course sent Braden with a little spending money. He immediately found a transformer toy, Bumble Bee, that he wanted, but wouldn't budge until we got Optimus Prime for Blake to play with. He thought Blake really needed a toy, too, even though he wasn't with us. So Becki bought Blake a toy, too, and told Braden he could take it home. Braden insisted it was Blake's. . . but amazingly when it came time for us to take it home, Braden agreed!
On Saturday, Braden and I joined Leslie, her kiddos Hunter & Katelyn, and Donnell for lunch, while Ann, Becki & Blake G. took Mason to lunch. Since Mason didn't join us, Donnell stopped by after lunch so she could meet him.
Saturday night, Becki's leadership class was hosting movie night in the park, so Ann kept Mason, while Braden, Blake G. and I went to the movie. Blake helped Braden climb this giant inflatable wall until it got dark enough to play the movie, which was one of our faves, Ratatouille.
Sorry this video is sideways. . . .
Sunday we all headed back to Springield, where we met Brandon for lunch at Olive Garden and Daddy picked us up! It was a great trip and made me realize that if there was ever a time I would like to live close to family. . .it is now! It was really nice to know that Mason was in good hands while Braden and I got some time together!
