Ryan loves his Disney Pixar Cars, and drags them every where.
Mikey and Ryan were using the upper balcony as a road. Ryan
Mikey He has a death grip on them when he carries them around the house. He tucks them under his chin, when he thinks big brother, Mikey, is going to come over and try to play with them. "Dude...I am not going to steal your cars."
Ryan couldn't wait to play on Grandma's new front porch!
It was a beautiful morning, so we just enjoyed being outside.
Once we were all fed and dressed for the day, Mikey asked if he could go play in Grandma's dirt! He brought out his bulldozer and front loader. This was a well thought out construction site, as dirt was every where! When Mommy returned from the BBQ Competition, the boys were back to playing in the dirt. Dirt and shade, make for a great afternoon! Even if it was 99+ degrees outside! Both boys loved playing in the dirt!
Once back home, Mikey couldn't wait to cut into the watermelon, that he picked out!
***There was just a little dirt in their shoes, once we got home! The boys had a blast! Thanks Mom and Dad for spending the weekend with the boys!***

I have never seen a beef brisket this moist, and it had an amazing taste!
MikeThere were 37 teams competing, and a wide variety of flavors and BBQ styles. Mike and Joe worked really hard and learned so much from this weekend. They will travel next weekend! The boys and I will continue to cheer them on! We are so proud of you!
