Family Time

We spent the entire weekend, from Saturday morning until Sunday evening, in Barnesville with both of our families. We were in town to celebrate Terrell's birthday with his family and my family. It was a really busy weekend but lots of fun and good to be home. We actually hadn't been home since the end of July, so this was a record for us! (A whole month!)

After dropping off Bailey with my parents and seeing them for a little bit on Saturday morning, we met Terrell's family for lunch and spent the rest of the day with them. Garrison decided he didn't want to take a very long nap Saturday afternoon, but other than that things with the little man went really good. (We're always a little nervous when we're away from our house because he doesn't sleep as well away from his own bed and his routine is always a little tricky when we're in Barnesville). He did seem much more aware of Allison this weekend. He was definitely interacting with her more and trying to keep up with her.

Saturday night we went out to eat for Terrell's birthday at Southern Pit and then everyone gave him his presents at home before we got the little ones in bed and settled in for the night. The rest of the night we talked, watched the Braves games, and ate red velvet cake (one of Terrell's favorite desserts).

Sunday we went to church and then planned to spend the rest of the day with my family. Somehow my camera never made it out of my purse on Saturday so unfortunately I don't have pictures from that day, but I did get a few pictures on Sunday.... only because they were planned family pictures. I don't think I would have remembered to use my camera then if we hadn't already planned to get some family pictures taken outside of O'Charley's (Terrell's choice for his birthday lunch).

After lunch we went back to my parent's house and got the little man ready for his nap. Once again, he decided to take a short nap and then just played and talked in the crib until we went in and got him. Then everyone gave Terrell his presents and we had cheesecake and cool whip for dessert (Terrell's other favorite dessert).
We enjoyed a lazy afternoon and watched the Braves come back to win in the bottom of ninth inning. =) We were all so full around dinner time that we decided to feed Garrison and the rest of us skipped supper. We got home to Covington around 8:20 and put the little man right to bed.
We had such a fun weekend and enjoyed spending time with our families. Our house is messy now and there are piles of laundry to do, but it was very worth it to spend the weekend with family. Terrell especially had a great weekend and enjoyed all of the celebrating for his birthday. We are so blessed with wonderful families who continue to spoil their grown children. =)
