Chairs and Checkers!

Josiah requested that we have dinner at Cracker Barrel on Saturday night, so that's where we headed. I certainly wasn't going to argue with affordable home-cooking after all!! I later realized that the reason he wanted it was for the peg game at the table and checkers - which is his new game that he's learned.
I think she's a Paula Deen in the making. She kept grabbing the little butter packets that come for the rolls and sucking on them until they'd bust open and she'd get a mouthful of butter. Seriously!!! I let her do it twice and then had to put a stop to it! :)
After dinner, the boys wanted to play checkers, so Callie and I went outside to rock. And that's what we all did for the next hour. It was fabulous!

I sat in a rocker, and Callie walked up and down the porch, just trying out all the rocking chairs. It was probably the most relaxing part of the weekend! :)

After the boys FINALLY came out, they saw another checkers table and had to play just ONE more game outside!

Mmmm, Cracker Barrell, just one more thing that's lacking here in CA. Chris was so mad when he saw they were opening that one in VA the weekend after we moved!

gotta love Cracker Barrel! jackson and harrison love it and evidently if you go with a mimi and papa they'll let you drink the syrup rather than put in ON your pancakes. :)
