Visiting Grandma & Pop-pop

As promised, we finally made it up to New Jersey to visit Grandma and Pop-pop.  It was a short trip and unfortunately, Bobby and I ended up losing our voices!  It was quite funny how we would hold a conversation by whispering. Ha!

Anyhow, the boys had a good time with Grandma and Pop-pop's place.  They "cooked":
Graham loved lounging on the new couch:
Of course, at Grandma's - there's always cupcakes:
And lots of cartoons:
There was a quick visit from Uncle Doug and Graham obviously enjoyed it:
Later that week, we did get a chance to visit Uncle Doug again, along with everyone else in the family - uncles, aunts, cousins, and even the dog.  Charlie kept saying "woof, woof" everytime he saw the dog.
Charlie met cousin Madison for the first time - the only granddaughter among a family of boys in the Pridgen family!
Charlie really  enjoyed playing ping pong for the first time too:
Graham, on the other hand, was having fun trying to blow the ping pong ball across the table instead:
Obviously, Charlie was on a mission trying to get the ONE ball on the table:
Once ping pong was over, it was building with the train set. They really enjoyed doing that:
When it was almost time to go, I had changed Charlie into his PJs.  For whatever reason, he decided to just lay on his brother!  I think Graham was a little annoyed at that:
We weren't sure if we were going to fly home as scheduled but the weather looked like it was going to hold up just fine. It just started to snow in NJ when we were departing:
We had a connection to make in Chicago and literally just ran from one plane to the next.  And this is what we came home too.  Brrrr...!
And this is what Charlie decided to do at the baggage claim while we were waiting for daddy to pick up the car:
He wasn't throwing a tantrum or anything like that.  He just decided to crawl away and turn around and lay down on the floor!
Well, once we were home, it was back to our usual routine before bedtime (even at 10 o'clock at night!).  Yogurt!
I wonder how much yogurt actually gets into Charlie's mouth!
Thank you Grandma and Pop-pop for a great visit (and all the new clothes for the boys!).  As we were leaving their home and when we were driving back to the house in Tulsa, Graham would say "I miss Grandma and Pop-pop" or "I miss New Jersey".  Awww... it was too cute.
