Baby Shower for Aunt Leigh

28 Apr


We hosted a baby shower for Aunt Leigh this weekend and it was fun times for everyone. Again, I totally failed in the picture department but I was busy setting up, hosting and enjoying all the company.

More food.


Dad and Kathy stopped by here en route to South Dakota (not the most direct route but it was all for a good cause) and we got to spend time with them this weekend too. Plus, Buddy and Miss S got to meet and play in the backyard. Buddy is going to be in for a shock the next time he comes to visit and Miss S is much bigger.


Mom came prepared to the shower with gifts for Miss H 🙂 The highlight was the new paint set and after the festivities were over, she made many paintings on the front walk. It was a great lesson in mixing colors and what colors you can make with only a few of the basics.


Today, we went to see Aunt Leigh (and Uncle Chip’s) new house this weekend. Miss H loved throwing the ball off the deck and kicking it around their big yard.



All in all, a great weekend for a baby shower, family, friends and fun!


Early Birthday Celebration

22 Apr

Kerry’s birthday is coming up soon but we celebrated this weekend because we have family coming into town the next two weekends. Saturday was a perfect evening for steaks (and seafood for me)! When I made the reservation, I mentioned Kerry’s birthday so he was spoiled with a dessert plate. I enjoyed the chocolate items while Kerry stuck with the vanilla and strawberry flavors 🙂


Also, this weekend, Miss S started puppy classes and she was worn out by the time she got home. We have had a few incidents of torn pants, stolen smoothies (she took Miss H’s right out of her hands) and general puppy mischief this week. Hopefully, she becomes the star pupil soon. I am still shocked when people ask me, ‘what type of dog is she?’ I feel like the ears give it away!


Miss H and I met friends at the park on Sunday and enjoyed the sunshine and company. All the kids were exhausted after three straight hours of running around.


Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
