Weekend at "Jackson's Bibby's House"

I can't even begin to tell you how much fun Ella and I had with Amanda, Jackson and Bibby this weekend! We were so totally spoiled by the Moore family with all kinds of yummy food and fun outings! I took 218 pictures, but does that really surprise anyone?

It was the ultimate playdate for Jackson and Ella. Every morning when one of them heard the other wake up, they would immediately start yelling, "Jackson" "Ella" and then they hit the floor running and screaming and didn't stop until they crashed for bed time at 8:00 that night!

Beth said all weekend how well Ella and Jackson play together for 2 year olds. They really do. They are so sweet to each other. It was fun for us because they never got bored, therefore there was never any fussing. It was one fun moment after another at "Jackson's Bibby and Pawpaw's house". That's what Ella called them. Jackson's Bibby and Jackson's Pawpaw. Towards the end of our weekend, Ella started dropping the "Jackson's" and just called them Bibby and Pawpaw. So sweet.

Outing #1

Memorial City Mall. AKA: The greatest play ground in a mall EVER!

On the way to the Mall.








This is evidence of Beth's mad photo journalism skills that Amanda mentioned in her blog. :-) I love this picture.


On the way home from the Mall! Just a little tuckered from all the fun.


Bibby treated all of us to cookies on the way out and Ella just couldn't get all of hers eaten before passing out in the car. She had so much chocolate dripping out of her mouth after it liquefied from being in her mouth for so long.


Outing #2 To Be Continued...

Love,

The last pic of Ella cracks me up. What better way to drift off to sleep than with a chocolate cookie in your mouth. I may try this tonight :)

I'm going to go with your movie recommendation (previous post) and hopefully see it tonight after the kiddos are in bed. I just have to know what that last request is!

Okay, my mom and I are rolling over Ella's cookie. I mean, it's serious nap time when you fall asleep EATING the cookie.

Precious, precious, precious! I so wish I would have "run into" the Tods this weekend. How fun!
