Busy weekend! What beautiful weather though! I don't know about you but I am ready for the spring weather to stay.
Friday night we went out with our good friends Jay and Sara and their precious girls, Hadley (2 yrs) and Audrey (5 mos). We went to the Villiage Tavern (yumm) and had a great time catching up. This was our first time to meet sweet Audrey. She is too cute!! Of course Hadley never disappoints and was so adorable. She has the sweetest personality. There were several groups of high school kids out for prom and when Luke and Audrey were both crying we thought we should go around to the different groups and mutter under our breath to "be very careful tonight". I swear there is no better birth control than 2 screaming kids! We of course stayed in our seats. Even with the occasional tantrum from Lucas or Audrey we still had a fantastic time. Jay and Eric have known each other since high school when they played soccer together and then they were fraternity brothers at Auburn. This is when Sara and I met and forged a wonderful friendship. We were in each other's weddings, and I am already trying to get Lucas to be a perfect gentleman around Miss Audrey although Jay isn't going to let her date until she is 40. We will see... God has blessed us with these great friends! Jay and Sal (as we like to call her) are the types of friends that we can be ourselves around and yes, they still love us! How great is that?? I am looking forward to having our families grow up together.
Saturday morning Eric drove to Anniston for his long ride. When he got back home we packed up and headed to Samford University to meet up with Jennifer who took Luke's 6 month pictures. Let's just say that she is wonderful! She did such a good job of getting Lucas to smile and knew exactly what to say and how to say it to make Lucas laugh. It is so special to have someone that I have known since I was 6 years old take these pictures. Eric and I looked like fools trying to get in every position and sing every song imaginable to keep Lucas entertained. I am just glad she didn't get any pictures of that!
Saturday night my parents came over and brought dinner. We all know that they are there to see Lucas, that is all. I am sure you that have children know that you are now knocked down on the totem pole of hierarchy. This is completely fine and we wouldn't have it any other way of course, but it is still funny. Most of the time this is how it goes: Mom and Dad enter the house and immediately run to Lucas or grab him out of our hands and proceed to make over him and then as if almost an after thought they turn our way and say "Oh Hi!". OK, so that may be a little exaggerated, but not by much. We are so lucky to have our parents who love our child so much! It was so much fun to watch my dad get on the floor with Lucas and play. Lucas loved every second of their visit.
My brother and his girlfriend, Sarah, came over today for a short visit. It was so good to see them. We love Sarah and she is so much fun. She cracks us up and is very sarcastic so she fits right in with us. You have to have a pretty thick skin to be in our family and so Sarah is a welcome addition. My dad has even said that he thinks he has met his match in her. Good job Sarah!
Other than their visit it was a pretty lazy Sunday, which is always welcome. The next few weekends are going to be packed, so I guess we shouldn't take these for granted.
