Fun with Don & Mae Mae!

Part of the fun of visiting Myrtle Beach is getting to spend time with Don and Mae Mae.  We have had such great visits in the past (here, here, and here) and this time was no exception. 

Adam was so excited that we were visiting telling me the whole week before Christmas the order of operations: "So mommy, Santa's going to come on Christmas, then when Christmas is over, we're going to see Don and Mae Mae!!!"  It was adorable and I love that the excitement of seeing them replaced any sadness that Christmas was going to be over. 

Of course upon arriving at their house we realized that Christmas was not over, for it turns out Mae Mae had put in a special call to Santa and asked that he drop a few extra gifts off at her house.  Adam was thrilled, of course!

Adam got to spend a whole day with them while Andy and I went to the movies and had a fabulous time.  He got to jump on the trampoline that the neighbors have, he visited the nativity scene next door (and apparently was upset that the baby Jesus was sleeping in a wet had rained), rode on Don's tractor, helped with some yard work, and got to see lots of helicopter photos, and surprise, Don was the one flying them! Doesn't get much better than that!

I love that Adam has gotten to spend so much time with Don and Mae Mae and we're already looking forward to a spring break visit!
