We decided to camp out at my moms for the 2 nights Steph was home, so we could all be together and not miss a minutes visiting time. We had wall to wall blow up beds in the family room and everyone was comfy.
We had 2 Birthday celebrations for Gray. One on Saturday eve. with his other grandparents and One on his Birthday the 7th at McDonald's with his cousins. The kids ate and played hard in the jungle gym. One of Gray's favorite gifts was a stuffed dog I had ordered for him that looks like my Halle dog. He adores her so much and loves stuffed animals. I went to Pet Smart and made a name tag for the dog. Gray kept thanking me all weekend for his dog. He even put a leash on her and walked her in to McD's.
It was such a fun weekend and lots of hugs exchanged. When Steph and kids had to pack up and leave Monday before noon, there were lots of tears. She had to stop at the dealership she bought her vehicle from to get her oil changed, so she got on the road a little earlier. After she left, I noticed she had left Gray's Birthday bag filled with his presents. I asked her if she wanted me to mailed them and she said no. After her oil change, she drove back to my moms house and we got to spend another hour visiting and eating and hugging some more. I think it was meant for her to leave the bag, cause we weren't ready to say good-bye.
Then after she had been gone about 10 minutes, I discovered the kids toothbrushes were left behind. I will mail them! We all are looking forward to our next time we can all be together. We are hoping for Thanksgiving!!!!
