Scene from a McDonald's parking lot: I bet this thing gets great gas mileage.
On Sunday, my mother and I took the four kiddos to Illinois to visit one of my best childhood friends. She is a FSGM, Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George. I am lucky if I get to see her once a year in the summer. Well, that didn't happen this year so we arranged for a visit on her home turf.
The kids quickly got over any shyness. Sister Mary has a way with people.

And that's about as far as I got.
"Momma, when you coming down?"
Momma will go almost anywhere for a good picture.
Miss Maggie shoots me a sly smile.

Sister Mediatrix and Maggie!
After playing outside, we went inside for snacks - cookies, crackers and cheese. Oh, and lemonade. The kids were pretty happy. I was too until the big boys decided to take both of the brownies. I thought brownies were for adults!
Temper tantrum #?Matthew was a little crabby on Sunday and had quite a few meltdowns, at least this one wasn't on concrete.
