A weekend with the Mr's Folks

Monday, September 24, 2012

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, the Mr's mom and dad, and our nieces came over for a quick visit. This was their first time to see the house, and I think the girls loved the stairs and secret hiding places more than anything.  

Upon their arrival, we had grilled burgers and made homemade french fries for lunch. And then they had the grand tour. We were all originally going to the zoo, but the Mr and his dad stayed at home to wait on the A/C guy to come check out our system. They watching a good bit of college football.

So his mom and I loaded up the girls and took off to The Birmingham Zoo. You can check out that post by clicking here.

After we returned, we all cleaned up and loaded up in the Mr's truck to head to Jim N Nicks. And in Alabama, this is how we roll...

Yep, that's four wide, and yes, everyone was in a seat belt. Just two were sharing the same one. =)

None of our guests had been to Jim N Nicks, so we were happy to take them to experience the best BBQ in town.

Pops wasn't excited about having his picture made... but nevertheless, he still ended up on the blog! =)

And getting these three to stop acting silly for a picture... well, we didn't have all day. =)

After we were so full that we could pop... we dropped the men off and went where every out of town guest wants to visit.... TARGET! And let's just say that these girls were a little excited about the "big balls."

BTW, in case you were wondering... Target two isles with Christmas decor already out! And, I couldn't find their Candy Corn Oreos! Errrr!

After a full round of shopping at Target, it was time to head home for a long, long nap. Of course that didn't happen until we finished watching the Auburn/LSU game. And had Edgars cupcakes!

Sunday morning I got up to make pigs n a blanket for breakfast. But, I ended up teaching Hannah the ropes in the kitchen...

And before we said our "see ya laters"... the hubs and I cooked up a monster lunch to send them off. Steaks, chicken, smashed potatoes and baked beans.

And that was our weekend. It was full of family, food and football. A pretty good weekend I'd say!


  1. Oh my that sounds simply divine! Y'all are eat'n good in 'bama!!! I can't wait to come visit :-)

  2. I love a weekend full of great fun, family, food, and especially teaching the next generation how to do it all!
