Memorial Weekend Recap

We had such an amazing weekend...they always go much too fast but I was thankful for it just the same. There were so many of those overjoyed and thankful moments. I have never been so happy in my entire life.

Saturday Morning Jimmer, Nick and I got up, ate breakfast and got on the road towards Des Moines to see my best friend Morgan, her husband Jay and their two beautiful boys Carter and Kaden. We got there around 11:30 am and shortly after Nick and Jay left to go golfing, leaving Morgan and I and our little guys to relax and enjoy the beautfiul day. We ate lunch, the boys napped, filled up the baby pools, sat outside, listened to the ipod, and had some summer cocktails. It was the most perfect afternoon. Jimmer LOVED the baby pool (definitely getting one this week for him). Carter was entertaining as ever and is such a sweet little boy. He loves his little brother to death and was so good with Jimmer. His 3rd birthday is next week which is insane to me...I feel like I was just visiting Morgan in the hospital when he was born!! I wish we lived closer because our boys will certainly grow up to be great friends. I have learned so much about being a Mother from Morgan. The guys returned home and we enjoyed some more of the outdoors while Jay grilled. We ate out on their deck before hitting the road for Davenport. We planned it perfectly so that when we left it was Jimmers bedtime. He slept nearly the whole way:) WARNING: picture was so much fun:)

This is the conversation I see happening:
Kaden: Dude what's up with your Mom and that darn camera?
Jimmer: I thought I told you man, she doesn't stop..just let her do her thing and she'll go away

Jimmers head is HUGE HAHAHA

"This should get us a few ooo's and ahhh's"

"Sup Ladies"

They loved each other....

This should get a few laughs when they're older...

Carter is so good with the babies

Jimmer loves Daddys hats!

"How much this sweet ride run ya? What's the mileage?"

We arrived in Davenport late Saturday night and stayed until Monday afternoon. My sister in law and beautiful nieces were all in town from Louisiana too! It was so nice spending time with them and watching them interact with Jimmer. He has some amazing cousins :) He also has some pretty cool aunts, uncle, Grandparents, Great Grandparents, and even a GREAT great Grandmother (Insane!) Hopefully someday we will live closer so we can see all of Nicks family more. But in the meantime I will be thankful for the time we do get with them.

"on second thought...I could get used to this"

In a nutshell...I'm exhausted after the weekend. Thankfully, this is a short week. This coming weekend we are doing house, goodwill runs, relaxing and that's it. If it is warm enough I will probably fill a baby pool for Jimmer out on the deck. I am very much looking forward to a quiet weekend. Oh and did I mention I think our baby grows a pound a week!?!? I swear this weekend he got bigger. When I check on him in his crib he looks gigantor. I am finding it is IMPOSSIBLE to have a bad day with him in our lives. Ps - He had a doctors appointment the other day and he weighs 18 lbs 10 ounces!! Big boy!! :)

This weekend I'm going to upload some funny videos I've taken over the last month...including our speedy crawler...he has carpet burns on his knees some days!!
