weekend at namaw & poppy's

since quitting nursing had left me with a bout of mastitis, i was looking forward to resting & the extra hands at namaw & poppy's this weekend. it was quite nice for me. the kiddos had the best time there, as always.
they got to play, play, play.
daddio finally changed out the mailbox. that mailbox was given to them by namaw's grandaddy. held up well over the years. poppy had placed a board inside the lid to give any maibox batters a bit of a jar when they took a swing. good thinking poppy!
he used a lesson my papaw taught him on how to remove posts using a post, a rock & a chain to get the old mailbox out of the ground. i thought that was pretty cool. the new mailbox was a christmas present from us & auntie jen. here's the finished product, auntie jen. not bad, hey?
gracie looks quite sharp in namaw's glasses, doesn't she?

thank you namaw & poppy for the wonderful weekend. we had a great time! thank you for taking care of everyone while i rested too! love you, sara

I am going through a case of mastitis right now too. I think the fever was the worst part for me. I was so weak I couldn't even pick Kingsley up. I hope you are feeling better!

Hope you are feeling better! I can't believe you all replaced that mailbox! That was the only way I could ever find the driveway LOL!

The mailbox looks great! I'm glad Justin was able to get it in and there were no injuries to report.

Hope you are feeling better.

I am starting to feel better, actually my pain has moved to the other side. augh! this too shall pass.
