Another rainy day in Monroe, North Carolina

The sound of rain is such a wonderful thing with the dry year we have had thus far. There were tornado warnings for the western parts of Union County in Waxhaw and Weddington. Jared enjoyed playing outside despite the heavy downpours we had at times. Since it is still warm the rain wasn’t too cold to be concerned about causing him to get sick. He was a mess when he came in though. Boys love dirt and puddles!

By dinnertime I was antsy to get out of the house instead of cooking. I am tired of looking at boxes!  I  have been packing up our stuff for about 5 days.  (I ran out of boxes, so I am on a break.)  We all went out to dinner at Chic-Fil-A which is Mack’s favorite fastfood restaurant. We got up to the counter and I asked Jared, “Do you want chicken or chicken?”. Being silly of course, he thought for a moment and said “Brownie”! (They were sitting on the counter, which actually worked as a sale since I went up and ordered a brownie a la mode for hubby and I to split while Jared played at the playground).

After eating our dinner, Jared played on the indoor playground with the other children. The fun was shortlived though when one of the little girls peed on the stairs. All the kids cleared out.  Oh well…

A quick plug for CFA…Labor day (September 1) if you go in with any football logo you get free chicken strips. Wahoo!! Chic-Fil-A always has excellent service. I love how they  say, “My pleasure” when you say Thank you.

Sounds like y'all had fun and cracking up about the little girl peeing on the stairs! ;) Gotta love kids!

Alright, I'm still packing up my Photo Equipment, and I'm about to hit the road, so I better go! See y'all in a couple days!
