At the end of this Thanksgiving Day, we have much to be thankful for... good health, good family, good friends, and 2 children who were kind enough to take turns napping at Grandma and Grandpa M's (haha)
Today was Grandma M's birthday. We won't mention the number... but there was a lovely dinner prepared by Grandpa M at their home and Zachary got to attend with all the grownups and his cousins. It was a very special and fun evening and we are honored that we were included! Thanks to Aunt Mandy for a super star babysitting job with Sophie!!!
So there is a restaurant proprietor in Fort Worth who is a bit, shall we say, particular. He has been known to refuse service to people dressed 'inappropriately'. Needless to say, I was a bit hesitant to take Zachary there to pick up eggplant parmesan for Grandma M's birthday dinner. The thought of a 3 year old loose in a fancy restaurant terrified me, but off we went... I should have never worried because Zachary charmed this man and somehow walked out of there with a handful of chocolates and an invitation to return. Only my little buddy... :)
Tonight after dinner, Zachary was playing 'football game'. He was the announcer, Steve was the crowd, and I was to be the cheerleader. He said to me - "Mommy, get on the field and go shake something." Five minutes later, we are still laughing. :)
We took Nana and the kids to the Cowgirl museum. Sophie slept through the whole thing, but Zachary had a great time. There is a fountain outside, the Museum of Science and History has an exhibit inside, and upstairs there is a bull ride. Check out Zachary's 6 seconds...
We found out last week that Zachary is moving up to a new class at 'school'. He was supposed to go the week that I had Sophie, but due to tears (on my part) we decided that was too much change for everyone. He will start in Ms. Linda's room on Friday, and will be reunited with all his old buddies - Cason, Grant, JT, Sierra, Ella, etc. - that he has been with since Ms. Tiffany's. He's very excited about being in Ms. Linda's room!!!
