Back in October, (my how time flies) I went over to Burleson to meet up with my mom and dad for a weekend visit. They were in town for a concert and I wanted to shop at a few stores so I got up super early on Saturday morning and drove over. We met up and had lunch at Jack n the Box. Then we went to Target, CVS and then, we found a Kid-to-Kid. We had a great time. We headed back to the hotel to meet up with Dad so they could go to the concert. I took the boys to go eat at Cracker Barrel and then to TJ Maxx.
At TJ Maxx, Lincoln began to melt down so it was time to go back to the hotel. We had baths and then to bed. Sunday morning was nice and slow. We had breakfast at the hotel. I knew I wanted to go to the HEB and get milk and eggs bc they were so cheap and then to World Market (one of my favorite stores ever!) We went to HEB and then over to World Market. Dad bought Lincoln a train whistle and I found the cutest excavator and bull dozer ornaments for the boy's Christmas tree.
For awhile now, we have been working with Lincoln on chewing gum and not swallowing it. So throughout the weekend, we kept asking him if he still had his gum. On the way over to World Market, we gave him a piece of gum. After we finished shopping I needed to feed Reagan before we got back on the road. We had given Lincoln a juice to drink for the road. While mom and I were sitting in the parking lot feeding Reagan, mom turned to Lincoln and asked if he still had his gum.
He said, "no, his drink swallowed it." Not that he swallowed it, but that his drink swallowed it for him. Mom and I just looked at each other and laughed. She turned to him again and talked to him some more about not swallowing his gum.
Reagan finished, we prayed and we both got on the road to head home. It was a great laugh before we got on the long ride home.
