This past Saturday we drove down to Montgomery for the day to celebrate both LuLu and Graddad’s birthdays! I think it was a surprise to LuLu that we all showed up at her house…but luckily we came bearing food so she didn’t have to do anything except play with the grandkids.
We all enjoyed a wonderful lunch…and the kiddos had a ball at the “kid table”.
We then celebrated the birthday boy and girl with a key lime pie…
and then LuLu got to open her gifts…with plenty of helpers!
Granddad had a little help too! 🙂
Maxwell LOVED getting to play with Katie and Anna all afternoon….
and I loved getting to catch up with these lovely ladies!
After pie was eaten and presents were open, the kiddos hit the pool! Robert was a trooper and volunteered to get in with Maxwell. Of course, considering how HOT and HUMID it was, I don’t think he was sacrificing too much! Maxwell loved swimming as always and even starting jumping off the side of the pool into Robert’s arms! exciting!
We also got to see Mary Beth’s dogs, River and Zelda, that she brought over. If you know me at all, you know I am not a dog person…to put it lightly. and to be around dogs this big…well…poor MB was having to run interference to keep them away from me all afternoon! Maxwell wasn’t too keen on getting close to them either. He just kept saying “no puppies!”. I can’t blame him though because I think Zelda and River might still be taller than him at this point. They are super sweet pups though, just too big for me!
By the end of the afternoon, Robert was hot-doggin’ off the diving board. It was pretty impressive! wish I had gotten a picture of the flips he was doing…Maxwell had to get his olympic swimming expertise from somewhere, right?
It was a fun day all around!
Happy birthday LuLu and Granddad! We’re so glad we got to celebrate with you and love you very much!
