Weekend Plans

Another crazy weekend for us. Ryan is a groomsmen in a wedding this weekend. One of his college roommates is getting married. Rehearsal was Friday night, which we took Orin to. He did very well for having missed his nap. The only reason we even took him was so Ryan’s friends could see him. I left the dinner at 8:00 so I could make sure to feed him and get him to bed on time. His whole day was off with all the traveling, so we wanted to provide some consistency for the poor kid.

After he went down to sleep, Mom and I walked 2.5 miles around town. Maria and I missed out on our walk today because we had to leave town early, which happened to be during our normal walking time. So I’m glad I did some form of exercise today!

Grandpa and Grandma are going to babysit all day Saturday so we don’t have to worry about having Orin during the ceremony and reception. As much as I enjoy having him along, I just don’t feel like it is fair to him to have to adjust to a new environment and schedule for the whole day. Plus, my mom and dad are really excited to watch him. And we all remember how he behaved at the last wedding we were at! We don’t want that happening again!

They have big plans for the day. They want to take him on walks and go swimming in the kiddy pool I bought for him for $5.00. I just went to Wal-Mart on Thursday and bought Orin a blue pool to have for this weekend. Maria came along with us and bought Hazel a green one! I’m sure they will have fun swimming in their little pools.

I will be sure to post pictures from the weekend of fun once we are back at home again.

Speaking of being back at home...
We should have a new nephew very soon. And we live in the same town now, so we can really share in the excitement. We are so ready to meet the little guy!

When can you post pictures of your new home?

You're lucky to grandma and grandpa so close for babysitting. There have been a million times in the past several months that I've longed for relatives near by to watch our kids. We've found some good babysitters, but it's not the same especially when we'd like to leave for a couple of days at a time.

Have fun at the wedding!
