Good Weekend

I usually try to have a good and relaxing weekend but I would say that this one was particularly good. On Friday night my parents came into town for Classic Rock Baby's first birthday party. This was the first time that they had been out of town since the accident so I was very glad that they felt up to the drive involved with coming to the town where I live.

During the birthday party we actually got a picture of our whole family. It turned out pretty good so I thought I would share.

That's me (with particularly fluffy hair that night), my mom, my dad and my brother.

The party was a lot of fun as most first birthday parties are prone to be. I don't want to spoil Leslie's post so I won't go into all of the details but there was definite cake wearing involved before the party was over. I am pretty proud of the gift that I got him. It his own baby sized chair from Pottery Barn kids with his name on it. I got the idea after a friend got one for her nephew a few weeks ago for his first birthday. I thought it was the perfect gift so I quickly ordered one for CRB.

He already took a couple of head dives off of the chair but hopefully he will get the hang of it. He really seemed to like it. Here is a picture of him trying out the chair towards the end of the party. He was getting tired and had already been stripped of the cake covered outfit he started the party in.

On Saturday we didn't go out and do a whole lot but we watched a lot of football. Dad went over to my grandparent's old house to do some work but mom and I stayed at the house most of the day. I made four of the aforementioned apple pies.

On Saturday night my parents headed back home with Brun in tow. My dad and I are headed out Tuesday night for a little camping/racing vacation so mom is on puppy sitting duty. They have informed me that he has a lot of energy. I'm not sure why they thought this was news. :-)

Sunday was filled with church, a nap, lots of laundry and the start of packing for my trip. I am so looking forward to getting out of town. I didn't go on a real vacation this summer so these few days will be my vacation until the Christmas holidays.

Fun family photo and CRB looks like he has quite the claim on that chair. You did a wonderful job. Enjoy your vacation!!
