Over the last few weeks, I've been collecting surprises for the yahoos to enjoy at the lake. We used to have a johnny-jump-up, but I think in the post-Christmas-and-new-baby-confusion, it was thrown out with the trash from the basement. So Jonathan's big surprise was a new jumper. He LOVED it. He laughed and squealed when he got in it the first time. I even heard a, "Yahoo!" from him as he went round and round.

Coleman loves a big floor puzzle right now, and I had taken one Andrew got for his birthday. It has 100 pieces, so I figured we would all work on it together. Andrew got busy talking to Grandma, but Coleman sat and worked and worked until it was finished. We did it a couple of other times during the week too. It's a picture of Noah and the ark and some animals. If you know Coleman, you know that he is big into pirates right now. He nicknamed Noah, "Pirate Noah."

I had also taken the ingredients to make rice krispy pops one day. They're like rice krispy treats, but with peanut butter and corn syrup instead of marshmallows. You make them in muffin tins and then stick popsicle sticks in them.

Just after we finished and were getting ready to move them to the counter to harden, somehow the pan came out of my hand and got upside down on the floor. Thank goodness for the saran wrap, because only two actually dumped out on the floor. We all laughed and repaired the damage. Then Coleman said, "That's okay Mommy. It was just an accident." Sweet boy!
One night we drove over to Anderson, SC to eat supper at Chick-fil-A (I don't think we would survive if we tried to go a whole week without one trip to CFA!), and took the boys to see Toy Story 3. Gigi and Papack took Jonathan back to the house so he could get to bed on time. It was a really good movie, and I only cried a little. Brent and I both got tickled when they showed the scenes from the day care center and Coleman said, "Wow! I wanna go there!"
When we got home, the boys got new TS pajamas to wear. They assumed their characters very well.
There were also sticker books, a ring toss game, and a new board game for the yahoos that week. However, the biggest surprise of all came on Friday morning and it was nothing I had planned. Stay tuned. . .
