Grandma T Visiting Again!

This is another one of my back blogging. I am getting to be such a slacker. HEE HEE. mom got to come out and see us again. I was totally thrill as were the kids and Vaughn. Tyson had her days already jammed full of stuff to do, it was a lot of the stuff we didn't get to do while she was here in April. And of course CHUCK E CHEESE was on the list.

Tyson and Grandma T at the Chuck E Cheese in Rochester battling it out to see who was the best shot in the establishment. Tyson would play this game the whole time we are at Chuck E Cheese if I would let him. I tell him, "Variety son, Variety."
This virtual game is pretty cool. You actually are a part of the game. Tyson always needs a little bit of help on it and Grandma T was more than happy to help out.
Taryn is growing like a little weed and even though it had only been a month since my mom last saw her, she still couldn't believe the changes she had made. She is sitting up all by herself and babbling all day long.
We tuckered out Taryn. She played with her diaper wipes until she crashed. Her naps are far and few between and so I am grateful for them when they come.
Ah, yes the Merry-go-round at the mall. Tyson loves to ride on this but even watching it go around makes me ill. I used to have a very strong stomach and now I am a wimp. Things that go around and around make my stomach turn. So...Grandma T got roped into it. She did well for about the first 10 go rounds, and then even she was a little green around the gills.
The last time mom was here we wanted to go miniature golfing, but we ran out of time. This time around we made a day just for it. There is a driving range about 1/2 mile from our apartment with mini golf. It was a perfect day to go golfing. Tyson likes to hit the golf ball as hard as he can and then the ball usually goes into the sand traps or the water, more often it is the water. He thinks that is quite funny because then he can fish it out with the little bet they provide.
Grandma T beat us all at mini golf.
Cute picture of the two golfers.
We took some time to play at the playground by the house. Even though the weather had been nice during the day, the evening got a little chilly.

I got Taryn on the riding horsey. She wasn't too sure at first and then she started to smile.
Tyson loves to roll down the hills. He is such a boy.
Tyson and Grandma T played every game we had, especially checkers. I will not play checkers with Tyson, I get too frustrated, but my mom, bless her heart, is a very patient woman. (Patience was virtue that I wasn't blessed with and am now quickly learning.)

We took Grandma T to Friendship park to play for the day. It was a nice day, we took our lunch and had a great time. We also went to see "UP" at the movie theater and Vaughn got to come with us. What a great time we had. Thanks mom for coming to spend time with us. We miss you very much and can't wait to see you in August.
