Another Rainy Day

I guess rainy days just inspire me to sit around and think about what I could post on our blog! Ilove to sit in our kitchen on rainy days- we have two huge windows (without any window treatments...hint hint mom!) and you just feel like you're in the middle of the rain- without getting wet of course! I have found Miles just sitting at the back door or staring out the window on these type of days, but now he is napping! Maybe it will be another 3 1/2 hour one like yesterday- but probably not! If only he would tell me before those big naps- "Mom, I'm going to sleep for a while, so you go get lots of stuff done!" Oh well!

Here are a few pics from last week when we went to Canton to visit family:

Miles helping Mamawcharlotte get supper ready.

Miles and Mamawcharlotte playing the piano. She would play something, then he would play back- it was really amazing! Of course that only happened a couple times... =)

Wesley (my cousin), Uncle John, Aunt Suzanne (dad's sister), Uncle Bob (dad's little brother), Uncle Bill (dad's older brother), Tommy (dad's cousin), dad, mom, me, Miles, Mamawcharlotte (dad's mom) and Pop (dad's dad) It's always a treat to visit with lots of the family! What a special heritage we have to pass on to Miles!
Ready to go to the Canton Flea Market in his "hoppa-grass" outfit (When I taught in Greensboro, the children there had their own "language": "hoppa-grass"- grass hopper, "bus left"- the bus is going to leave me; I received quite the education while there!)
"I LOVE my Uncle Clif!" Precious! He hugged Uncle Clif completely unprompted!

This was HILARIOUS! We were at Great Mama's house and Miles decided to climb into the table. It will be interesting to see if he can still do this at Christmas time! This kept him busy and us rolling and snapping lots of pictures for at least 20 minutes! "MeMe- I don't want to sit down in the rocking chair!" This rocking chair was my great uncle's chair when he was little!
Honestly, do these people have nothing better to do with their time?!

These are some pictures from last weekend's birthday festivities! Emma Grace turned 2, and Madelyn and Amelia Ray turned 1! Happy Birthday!

Miles and Daddy on the bouncy slide. Miles didn't quite know what to think!

It was nap time for ALL these boys! Miles, Ethan, and Max- none of them cooperated for picture time! Ha!

Then these are proof that our child marches to his own little drum! Mom and I went to eat yesterday and thought we'd sit outside- something different for Miles (and also to distract him a little- oh the things we'll do!) He does not like to sit for long periods of time (what baby does) and after about 5 minutes decides he needs to wiggle out of the straps of whatever is holding him in SAFELY in place and stand up. So I pushed the high chair under the table as much as possible, and this is what he decided to do instead:

And last but not least, this one is for you Sara Hudson!
