The Fan Club Came & Went

I remember as a child, when Grandma & Grandpa would come to visit, the world seemed to stop & things were just plain FUN! Pottsie & Grammie came for a visit this weekend and I see the same thing happening for Reese. Countless times of "Watch me play this game!", wrestling, even a special Dunkin Donut breakfast from Pottsie this morning!
Warming up before the soccer game.
Reese is the one standing up halfway.

More warm up.

He was so funny...he kept looking over at Grammie & Pottsie in the stands and waving

Another sad loss of a game...

But when you're Fan Club is in full swing, who can be sad?

After the game, we went to our most favorite Italian restaurant...Italian Villa. I love little family-owned restaurants, and they have the most amazing tomato sauce. Every time we go, I always pour over the menu, thinking I'll try something new, but I always go back to my favorite Baked Ziti. I am never disappointed, and we always leave with overstuffed bellies!

If you're anywhere near Lewisville, I would highly recommend Italian Villa. For four adults & a child, our meal, salads, and drinks came to under $45!

Later Saturday night, Mommy, Reese, & Grammie sat down to play Yahtzee.

Reese usually wants to play game after game after game of Yahtzee.

It's taught great counting skills, addition skills, counting-on, problem solving skills.

But this night....

He lasted about 5 minutes and was gone in a flash.....

I guess he had more important things to do with his Fan Club!

Looks like they had a good time. We have a local restaurant that sounds a lot like yours, they've been in the neighborhood for something like forty years. I could eat like a dozen of their garlic rolls.

I loved the pics.

I haven't been to Italian Villa! Crazy. We are going...soon.

Ryan is obsessed with Yatzee. But it is one of the few games that I can still get into when playing with the kids.
