74 - 2 Weekends with Mimi and PopPop

This was Chip's last real weekend off. His days off have changed to mid-week, but he will hopefully be bringing in more money which translates to me being home with the kiddos. Anyways, we decided to spend those days off with his parents. Let Katie and Connor revel in some grandparent time. Plus, we did get to meet our great-niece Presley the first weekend.
The first trip was just one day, but we did get to see pretty much the whole family. We all converged on our nephew's house, so we could try to wake up the baby. She was haing none of it and she slept 95% of the time we were there. I did not manage to get any good pics, and I was hoping to get some this past weekend but the decided to go out of town at the last minute. Katie had fun chasing her cousins and hanging out with the family. Connor was just happy to get out of the car and into someone's arms.

Chiefer looks funny in this shot, but he is a BEAUTIFUL boxer! He is huge! He plays fetch with a small log. Sweet as can be though. Too bad he is fixed ...

This past weekend it was just time spent with Mimi and PopPop. We just relaxed and spent time at the house. Although Katie did discover a Croquet Set in the hallway that had never been open. So, of course we had to play! Chip won, but in my defense I did play most of the game with Connor on one hip. Katie was just getting the hang of it at the end of the game. Chip and I were going to try to employ the grandparent babysitting method, but Connor is teething so bad that we did not want to leave them with a fretting baby. (and I was not too excited about going to a movie in Greenwood)
