Visit from Grandma {Part 2}

Throughout the summer, Maddox has been painiting little wooden pegs to represent people for him to play with.  Of course, he only paints the most important people in his life... Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi.  While Mom was here, he convinced her to make a new Mario for him to replace the one he lost a few weeks ago.  While she was painting his Mario, he was making a new red Yoshi for himself.  In his underwear.  

After painting, the kiddos had fun with bubbles.  

We woke up early Saturday morning and took a road trip to the beach.  We picked up my niece and headed out for a day of fun in the sun.  By the end of the day, every one of us had a sunburn.  

While at the beach, I am always on the lookout for this cart to come rolling down the sand.  It is filled with numerous flavors of delicious Italian ice from a place called Sunset Slush.  

It quickly became a favorite of everyone.  

We had so much fun with Grandma during her time here. We did so many fun things that I forgot to take pictures of {blogging fail!}.  After our trip to the beach, we ate some yummy seafood in Calabash, North Carolina with G.I. Joe's parents.  We went to an indoor skydiving place {soooo cool... I will be doing it some day} and took advantage of their advertised "free spectating."  I tried to convince Mom to do it but she politely declined.  We also took a late evening road trip to Cold Stone Creamery for some ice cream.  

Sadly, on Tuesday it was time for us to say goodbye to Grandma.

First at home.

Then at the airport.

Maddox sobbed as we left her at the security checkpoint and began walking back to the Swagger Wagon. Thankfully she made it home with no delays or cancellations.  We can't wait until her next visit!
