A trip to Alamo

We had a friend come to stay with us from Ireland over the weekend. We took him up to Alamo on Monday to stay with my Mam and her husband Malcolm. Although Alamo is only 100 miles away, we don't get up there to see my Mam as often as we'd like to. Gavin and Tyrone love going to Nanas house because she is an animal lover. She has 10 goats, 10 cats, ducks, chickens and a few roosters. The boys love being able to run on the land and chase the animals. It was a lovely day and it was nice to get out of Vegas for the day.

How nice to have a quick get away. So I am guessing that Mam is Irish for Mom?

Sounds like a fun trip. Your boys are looking so handsome. How are you feeling lately?

I really need to check out Alamo. My other friend just did a post on whether or not she should move to Alamo. It sounds so nice and the picture she posted was beautiful!

Glad you guys were able to see your mam!

Holy cow, I LOVE Tyrone's eyes in that picture with the wig! That's so fun that you can get out of Vegas and not have to go that far away for your kids to have such a fun experience!

I love this pictures, especially seeing father and son try on the wig!

It's always so fun to go home. I love you mam! She's the best. Would you guys ever consider moving back? We definetly will, it's just a matter of time-like being able to sell our house:)

Hey Mandy, Im due March 8. I feel really annoying and whiney but it's really because Im at that awkward stage where I havent quite got the 'belly bump', but I am surely gaining weight... I'm sure when the bump comes I'll embrace it. When are you due?
