We were about 5 minutes into the ride and fairly far from the house when we noticed white smoke coming out the back. Uh-oh.. We decided we should get back to the house since something was obviously wrong but when Eric hit the gas the engine sputtered and died.
So there we were: 3 adults, a three year old, two year old, and one year old stranded on a gravel road...and so we walked.

I purchased a 4lb perdue chicken from Publix on sale for less than $5! I thawed the chicken all day and once thawed removed the giblets. Okay, let me back up and say that touching raw chicken REALLY grosses me out so taking the insides out was not a pleasant experience but I was determined to accomplish this.
Quarter a lemon put half in the cavity of the chicken and squeezed the other half over top of the chicken. Take half a head of garlic (unpeeled) and placed that in the cavity with the lemon and peel the other half and put that on the chicken. Cover the chicken in salt, pepper, and a little bit of butter. Marinate overnight. I added petite red potatoes right before baking.

Mason's favorite new place to hide.
Eric and I had a fight in the Walmart about purchasing the bunny ears...I won...obviously.
When a person leaves- "Where ______ go?" (while holding his arms out and scrunching up his face.)
" I want it"
"I wantto readit."
Schnack, Schnack= Snack
"I Pooped" (while grabbing his butt and wrinkling up his nose)
Mick= Milk or any other drink
Moooooos all the time. He is obsessed with cows.
Pretends to sneeze.. (Ahhh....shoo)
Puts finger to his lips and says shhhh!
Differentiates between Yes and No and answers questions accordingly (This has been the most wonderful thing he's learned)
Loves wearing Mommy's necklaces.
When he falls down he says, "em okaaay" while getting up.
When the wind blows real hard, he tries to hold his hair down, ...like he's wearing a toupe....preparing for the future, perhaps?
Grabs Mommy and Daddy's hands to play "Rosie" (ring around the rosie)
He likes to put stickers in his hair.
He still sleeps with about 7 pacis (3 in each hand, and one in his mouth) but isn't allowed to have them if he not in bed)
Eggs, chicken nuggets, pizza, peas, bananas, and other assorted fruits

In other weird news, my polymorphic light eruption (for those too lazy to click on the link- it's an allergy to the freaking sun), has somehow "erupted" in March without the sun. Not sure what's going on here but this familiar itchy red rash on my arms is not fun.
And lastly, I jumped on the zumba train tonight and jumped quickly back off. Everyone talks about how great this workout is. In Zumba, you "wave your hands in the air like you just don't care", and "Shake it like a salt shaker (shake it like a salt shaker)." I don't mind looking dumb..because I did ....but I just prefer a more regulated workout class I guess. You know, squats, lunges, push-ups,.... old school stuff.. I will say that I burned about 400 calories in the class and got a good sweat going. Maybe, I will try it one more time just to be sure I hate it. :)
I hope to get some "Mason videos" posted soon.

We were saving this toy for summer but the weather was so nice a couple weekends ago, we couldn't resist pulling out the T-ball set. Mason loved it, and was quite good at it. Somehow, Eric agreed to go to Opry Mills on a Saturday. In fact, I think it was his idea. He had some Dave and Busters gift cards and thought it would be fun to play some games. While we were there we stopped by the Rainforest Cafe and stared at the fishies for a while.
He loved it when the "meeemo" (aka: Nemo) fish would swim by.Once we made it to Dave and Busters we played by the rules until one of the employees told Mason he could climb up on the ski ball machine to get closer. We didn't argue.
