Wow...what a wonderful weekend we've had. First, Jackie and Stacey came to visit on Friday afternoon. We enjoyed some visiting time before heading out to dinner. We went to a local restaurant downtown called The Cotton Patch. It is an outdoor cafe type restaurant with live music. We laughed and talked and enjoyed the atmosphere. It was slightly warm....but we managed and had a great evening overall. On Saturday we went to breakfast and then had a time of browsing at the local Babies R Us. The timing was great as they were holding a class on breastfeeding. Jackie, Stacey, and Shannon patiently waiting as I participated. Jackie was so excited I think to be surrounded by baby galore! Jackie even purchased the matching lamp and an additional crib sheet that goes with our bedding sets. Jackie and Stacey had to get on the road shortly after. Again, it was such a great visit!
Shortly after their departure, my mama and daddy arrived! We unloaded the remainder of the shower gifts that I had not been able to bring back with us from the 2 Eufaula showers. We then visited and caught up before getting ready for dinner. Again, we decided to take them to The Cotton Patch. We walked around the riverfront prior to eating. It is a beautiful sight to see....and I just love watching the families enjoy the park areas. We also enjoyed a great dinner! The music was really good as well. It is so nice to just sit and enjoy the time together. On Sunday, Daddy, Shannon and I took off for breakfast. We then came back to the house to get mama and we were out the door again. Mama and I dropped the men off at the bookstore while we went to Target. My plan was to purchase the humidifier but that was an overwhelming task. I want to get what will be best for the babies....so we decided to wait and discuss it with the pediatrician to see if they had recommendations for us. We did purchase a couple of fans for the babies room and our guest room. We then picked up the men and headed for Babies R Us....yes, Shannon was a good sport as he is not into this baby shopping so much and this made for 2 days in a row. Mama got the animals and blocks to go above the crib as well as some more detergent for the babies clothes. I can't wait to get the items hung and share a pic with you! We then ate at Red Robin before returning to the house to wave them good-bye. It was sad saying bye as I/we enjoy their company. All in all it was a great weekend....busy....too fast....but great. Thank you all for coming to see us and for all the little treats you seem to find and do while with us! We appreciate your love and support!
