First, we had a wonderful time visiting with Mops and Pops these past several days. Michael had an extremely successful seminar (praise the Lord!) on Friday, so we honestly spent the rest of our time in a fairly celebratory spirit. Highlights of our trip included:
  • time spent with Mr. and Mrs. Stev
  • photo booth fun, and Phoebe's first carousel ride (she did not think it was all that fun)
  • lunch with Fave
  • dinner at Surin and a movie date to Iron Man
  • visiting with Aunt Janie
  • taking Phoebe to the park I played at as an itty bitty, visiting Granny and Granddad
  • hearing Pops speak at church
  • barbecue lunch at Mops and Pops house with quite the crowd
  • race day -- maybe next year I won't be pregnant and can actually participate! (yes, Rachel, I know you can run pregnant... just not when you're in my shape!)
  • a pregnancy massage
And friends, those are just the highlights! We really were blessed to spend so much time with Mops and Pops...such precious memories we have!

We have another busy week ahead of us this week, too! We head to the beach Thursday for Andy and Elizabeth's wedding, so I have plenty of preparing to do for that. And in a stroke of exciting, unexpected news... Fave and Gus will be coming to stay the night tonight!

In light of the busy week we do have, I'd better close this off with a few pictures from the week... I promise to be back before we hit the white sands!

Proof that I do occasionally drive; Michael set up the camera on a timer. Don't we look serious?

Phoebe and Mommy in the ladybug at the park...when I was little, they had horses. I can guarantee there are pictures somewhere!

I'm just amazed at how teeny she looks in this swing...yes, she's 14 months old!

Precious memories, how they linger...goodness, your entry has taken me all the way back to your childhood park adventures, to the week with our thomases...when it's all written out like you did, wow! We really did have a busy few days together...what a marvelous blessing, indeed...all glory to God for His goodness all the time! Mops and Pops misses y'all more than we can describe...but the love, well, our hearts are filled up so so so BIG! Have a fun time tonight with Aunt Fave and Uncle Gus!

Awww a pregnancy massage. I'm jealous! I could use one myself. Hope you enjoyed every second of it!

I'm so glad y'all had such a great time and Michael's presentation went so well! We've missed you! I know you heading out again soon. Call if you get a free moment. I'd love to catch up!

I think girls don't need to drive. Boys always seem to have an idea of the "best" way to drive, so I say let them at it! :)
