I know I really don't blog much anymore, but I'm going to try my hardest to keep it up... starting now!
This past weekend Miguel and I headed to Atlanta to celebrate both my Dad's birthday and my Mother-in-law's birthday. Both of them were born on the same exact day and both in West Virginia. What are the odds?
It's tough trying to get time in with everyone when you're only in town for a few days! But we did our best!
Thursday night we stayed at my brother-in-law and his wife's new house. So much fun to see their new place and be their very first over-night guests! Thanks for letting us stay, Juan and Jessie! Your home is beautiful!
Friday we went to Miguel's parents to celebrate his mom. We enjoyed family time, some yummy Thai food and finished up the evening with some cheesecake. Unfortunately I didn't snap a single picture. :(
Saturday we headed to my parents to celebrate my Dad's birthday. First things first I had to get some cuddles in with my absolutely favorite nephew, Evan! Happiest baby in the world right here! He just can't help but smile. Every time I see him he has grown so much! He is rolling himself over and has two baby teeth popping up!
It's amazing how being around my niece and nephew makes me take a billion pictures. I want to capture every moment to remember them and soak them in!
The ladies spent the rest of the morning baking G-Daddy's birthday cake. All four of us got involved and Karis was such a big helper!
Karis helped mix all the ingredients together and then helped mommy do the icing. Oh my goodness. She is just so cute.
After the kiddos went down for a nap the original Leeper ladies went out for a movie date to see Cinderella. Those who know me know my love for all things Disney. Well I share that love with my sister and as soon as the three of us saw the preview for the live action Cinderella we knew we all wanted to see it together!
|Guess I missed the pink and stripe shirt memo...|
The theater we went to put any other theater I've ever been to to shame! I mean for reals. I got totally spoiled and don't know if I will ever want to see a movie in a theater here in Savannah again! The seats reclined and you had so much room!
The movie was sooooo good! They really did such a good job of telling the story, keeping to the Disney version but not making it cheesy. I'm going to be honest, there were quite a few tears shed between the three of us.
When we got back to my parents house we started getting things ready to celebrate my daddy. My dad loves sitting out by the fire so for his birthday we thought it would be fun to roast hot dogs and have s'mores. My mom is like Martha Stewart and always has everything just so and perfect. She set up a wonderful meal and brought it all out to the picnic table. We had baked beans, a tasty salad, roasted veggies and all the toppings you could think of for the hot dogs.
We had such a relaxing fun time enjoying each others company, watching the sun go down, having lots of laughs and celebrating my dad.
Miguel and I had to turn around quickly Sunday morning and come back to Savannah to pick up our dogs (thanks SO much Jason for puppy-sitting!!) and get back in time for our kickball game. Even though we had a quick visit it was so great to see family!! I'm so glad that most of our family lives so closely now (Adrian move closer to the south east)!
