Two times in a week

Twice in the same week, can you beleive it?? Last night Tucker spent the night with his Mema in Gastonia at Aunt Boo's house so it was just Noah with us. We took him to downtown Greenville to see what was going on there. They had several of those blow up jumpy things set up for the kids to play on. Of course nothing is free in this day and time, which was okay since the money was going to save the dogs or free the whales or something like that. Since we are animal lovers and grandparents will do whatever it takes for their grandkids, we bought tickets for him to play. He had a great time.
There were a lot of people there, as is usually the case in downtown Greenville on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

The Clemson University Jazz Ensemble was set up outside the Hyatt and put on a great performance. Noah really enjoyed the music. When they took a break we walked down the street to window shop. Mass General Store was open so in we went. Did I say grandparents are such suckers? Here's the results of that visit.

On the way back up the street we had to stop at The Marble Slab for a horn of cream. Who can walk by that store without stopping? Instead of eating the icecream at the store, Noah wanted to walk back up the street to see if the band was playing again, so we did, and they were. We stayed until their last session was finished and headed out. After a stop at the Texas Road House in Taylors for a late supper (for all of you city folk, that's southern for dinner). Noah got the chicken fingers, as usual, but they were kind of spicy and he said they made his mouth hot. Then it was on to Mimi and Grandaddy's house to bed. We had a good evening.

Glad to see you updated the blog!
Maybe next week the other 4 grandbabies can spend a little time with you and Mimi...
Glad you had a fun week with the boys!

You are crackin' me up! Glad to see that you contributed to the "saving of the dogs and the freeing of the whales". I'm sure they will appreciate it (and Noah loved it too!).

Thanks for the green noise maker!! The sound it makes is so peaceful. I think we may bring it to your house tomorrow and forget it when we leave.

WOW! You sure are getting fancy with the blog. I like the new colors and layout. Is this a sign that you are going to be updating more often?
