To whom it may concern:
I would wager that this weekend was superfabulous!
On a spur-of-the-moment "I need a sister Marney fix" moment . . . I invited Marney and her son, Logan, up to visit us from Roanoke. It was so much fun to have a guys/girls weekend!
Marney and Logan arrived on Friday night and we all walked to the "Southern Sno" shack to get shaved ice. Don't you just love that name? They have become quite a favorite summer pasttime of mine already . . . and at only 90 calories a pop, they are relatively guilt-free, too. Besides, my staple "fireball" flavor always makes me think of my beloved Uncle David. I think Marney and Logan enjoyed them too!
Saturday was a busy, busy day! We woke up early, went on a 4 mile walk, then hit the pool to cool off. Logan had an awesome time jumping off the diving board with his Uncle Justin. Naturally, Jax was a ham . . . splashing and giggling . . . that is, until he realized that the water was sub-zero and there was a slight breeze. :) Nevertheless, it wasn't cold enough to stop us from enjoying another stop by "Southern Sno" on our way home.
After our showers, we divided off into our respective guys/girls teams and let the magic begin! Justin took Logan to see The Green Lantern (gag me), and they ate dinner at our movie theatre. I understand the rest of their evening was spent playing nonstop video games. The ladies (and Sir Jackson Heath) simply "shopped 'til we dropped" at the Hagerstown Outlets. Jackson is such an incredible shopper! Acutally, he helped his Aunt Marney pick out her new Coach bag.
Speaking of Aunt Marney and Big Jax . . . here are some photographs of their "date" yesterday (complete with dinner at Red Lobster).
He liked her because she let him drive.
And choose the radio station.
And scream at the slow drivers.
When told "Ma-Ma" was coming along as a chaperone . . . Big Jax simply tossed up his hands.
Since he was a cheap date . . . he wanted to ensure Marney could see the prices on the kids' menu . . . up close.
And even though he wet his pants on their first date . . . she still paid.
Nothing like a happy ending!
