we got the snapper back!!! (pics from the weekend, too)

We were barely able to pry Mia out of her Nana and Paw Paw's loving arms, but we brought her home last night. Only after a fun afternoon playing, and sharing a tasty supper. Mia was able to pet some lambs on Saturday, and eat one on Sunday :)

When we got there, Mia was sitting on her Paw Paw's pool table, helping him put the balls in the pockets. She certainly is at home there. Mia was very happy to see us, and ran to us, and then back to her Nana and Paw Paw, and back and forth. She showed off all her new stuff. They all went to Academy that morning, so she now has a pink Barbie telescoping fishing pool, a Barbie tackle box and a pair of sunglasses that all come in a cute back pack that's just her size. She showed us her little dadio (radio). She can make it play and everything. The gecko from the zoo was still in the car, but we saw it on the way out. It sure is a lot bigger than I expected it to be.

It was very obvious that Mia was very comfy there. Walking around and moving furniture like she owned the place. Oh, when we got there, she had just finished playing in the mud, and even thought she received a very thorough hosing off, she still had some dirt in the creases of her elbows and neck. Just the way a kid should look after a weekend with the Gma and Gpa. Mia wanted to play pool with her Paw Paw so badly that she took one of his cues down from the rack and started stomping around with it. Paw Paw, being the quick thinker that he is, took down another cue that could be broken down and gaver her the top half. VOILA a cue just her size!!! Paw Paw is magic ;)

She was so played out from the weekend, that she just stared far out of the window on the way home. After a warm bath, a story and a sippy of warm milk, the little snapper was tucked into her own bed and she didn't wake up till 9am this morning! Thanks Nana, Paw Paw and Memaw for taking such wonderful care of our snapper.
We just received some pics from their wild weekend:
