My Friday Lunch Dates

Last Friday, I was called to 'Nonna duty'.  Kelli had a doctor's appointment and Matt had to work, so I was asked to go spend time with three of my favorite grandchildren.  (Because they are all my favorites, you know.)

We began our visit with lunch from McDonalds with our Happy Meal Minions.
This sweet thing was asleep when I arrived, but she awoke before we could even start lunch.  She was a little thrown off when Nonna went in to get her out of her crib with no Mommy in sight.
But then I gave her yogurt and cookies and french fries and chicken we were all good from there.
After a quick tour from Brooke of the new schoolroom Kelli has been working on, we sat down to play.  Books, video games and, of course, our Happy Meal Minions.

Kelli came in soon after but was looking absolutely exhausted.  Matt had been suffering all week, first needing a root canal on one side of his mouth; followed the next day with a wisdom tooth pulled from the other side.  Needless to say, Kelli had not had a lot of sleep.  Since it was time for Elliot to go back down for a nap, I decided that Brooke, Maddux and I would have a movie date while Mommy got some sleep.
Off we went to watch 'Despicable Me 2' with lots of candy, popcorn, soda and yes, our Happy Meal Minions.  Cute, cute movie...but by the end, Maddux no longer wanted to hold his Happy Meal Minion (the evil purple one) because he was scared and wanted in Nonna's lap.  Oh, yeah, and we were out of candy.  And soda.  It's a tough life!

After the movie, they wanted their picture made with Turbo.
A quick bite for dinner at the Burger King in the mall and we were headed back home.

As I left Kelli's house headed back to Waller, this was the view from my windshield:
A beautiful ending to a beautiful day!

Sounds as if y'all had a great time. I thought they weren't suppose to eat junk food. What happens with Nonna's stays with Nonna. I won't tell.

I look forward to spending time with my "minion" every weekend.
