Birthday Weekend

We loaded up and headed east this weekend. Saturday was HG's actual birthday even though we had been celebrating all week.

Never fails when we head out of town, it takes an army to get us gone. Friday started out with a doctor appointment for Harper. Besides being 19 1/2 pounds, they are going to do a 3 week trial of a reflux medicine. My girls have mastered the art of puking. After seeing Dr Knapp, we headed to Steak n Shake. HG loves this place , loves it. She always eats all her food and half of mine. It is kind of embarrassing that our lunch dates take us there but she eats and it is cheap. But still, it is steak n shake!

A friend of mine just delivered her third child so we dropped off casseroles, biscuits and banana bread for the weekend. HG loved seeing her best buddy from school as well so we stuck around and let the girls play. Sweet little Ian is 7 1/2 pounds and 18 inches long. That is larger than Harper was but he seemed so tiny, so fragile. It was really hard for me to remember back on Harper being that small. It will definitely give you baby fever........for about two minutes and then you remember your 9 month old is still not sleeping through the night. I'm hoping she does by a year.

I pulled through a car wash with the girls on the way home from my friends and somehow gum ended up on my ride. At first, my initial thought was pink foam. A few more washes later, i realized it was gum. Have you ever tried to get gum off? With screaming kids? Yeah, not the easiest! The husband came to the rescue. Just as we finished, it started storming like crazy. Our flowers needed rain SO bad but my car also needed to be loaded. Two hours later, it is still coming down and Harper had popped in the tub. Big massive poop. See the trend here? I think everything was trying to keep us at home. 7:30 hit and we were finally pulling out of the drive. Drenched.

Once we landed in Texarkana, we were tickled pink we had fought through all the hiccups and made the trip. My brother, sister in law and their too cute for words daughter were in town . We don't get to see them often as we don't get down to Houston much so we were excited. Mom and Collins were in town too. I know Poppy loved having us all there. He loved it so much that he got a hotel room. Ha! The girls enjoyed playing and seeing each other. HG also had her cousin Taylor come play on Saturday. Family everywhere!

Saturday was Lyndsey and Marshall's wedding. Too much fun. Way too much wine. And probably too many Lone Star light Blondes. Oh well, good friends and good food should be accompanied by good drinks. We also might have tore up the dance floor. Yeah, not much of a dancer. I'm sure we made it very entertaining for all the elderly family members of the wedding party. Ha.

As all fun and good things do, our weekend came to an end. As I type, we are pulling through Royce City heading home. We are also pulling a uhaul. My friend Brooke drove by and called me laughing. Leave it to us, we always keep life an adventure. Speaking of Brooke, Saturday morning we went and looked for Bridesmaid dresses. Such fun!! Lucky for us, my brother, sister in law and niece will be in DFW in 10 days and then we will get to see them again a month later in Houston. HG is very excited!! :)

  1. Sounds like a fun weekend. You look so pretty at that wedding! You are always on the go, and I love that about you. You inspire me to get out and go more places. :)

    AND, I'm heading to Santa Fe in a week!
