Saturday we went to the tractor show. The monkeys loved it! But they loved the roosters that they had up there the most. I told them there was a lot of things they could have as pets BUT a rooster was not one of them! There was a display of peddle tractors that they were just mesmerized with. The man who had the display got 2 of them down and they got to ride them. The one Abbie was riding was pink. She wanted to bring it home with her. The man told us that you could still buy that one and it ran around $150. I don't think she will be getting one of those anytime soon! We ate lunch there before we left. They were cooking on grills and it smelled so good! It was good!
Then we went to the car show. Uncle Alan had entered his Jeep. The car show was put on by the Douglas County Humane Society. Needless to say there were dogs every where. Some of them made me nervous. These BIG dogs and the person holding the leash most of the time didn't weigh as much as the dog.
But by the time that we left the monkeys were petting some of the dogs. This is major because they have always been scared of dogs. They all had to sit in the Jeep and I think they thought they could sit in all the other cars to. When we walked around and looked at them we had to keep telling them not to touch.
The only bad thing was Andy lost his Superman. So I called and had granny look for it before they left.
We stopped at Dairy Queen on the way home. The monkeys had their first strawberry Sunday. They love ice cream. Abbie & Levi ate all of theirs and wanted another one. Andy left just a little in the bottom of the cup. But that was major for Andy because he does not eat that many sweets.
After we got home and had supper Emily called and told us that she found Superman in her purse. Andy must have stuck it in there at some time. But he got his Superman back!
Today we really didn't do anything. We didn't go to Church so we didn't have to be in a hurry today. I did run to the grocery store. We were about out of anything for breakfast. While I was there I found them a set to go with their play dough. It had a rolling pin, scissors and cookie cutters in it. So when I got home they got out the play dough and started playing. I had to make them put it up so that we could eat supper.
It really never rained today like it was forecast. It waited until tonight, after Mike had gone to work. Around 10:30ish they gave out a tornado warning for Cleburne County. I watched it for awhile to see where it was going. Pretty much straight for us. OK - get the monkeys up and into the van. Off to Granny's house we go. We were up there until around midnight. Then I got to get everyone back into the bed. I am going to check and see how much the underground storm shelters are. We may have to take donations to be able to afford one!
I hope that tomorrow is a pretty day and we can get outside for awhile!
I am heading to bed now. It has already been a long night!
