Friday night we were supposed to drive to Louisiana but that was cancelled due to the fact that on Friday it rained in Houston for eleventy-hundred hours and the roads were flooded and blocked. We wouldn't have been able to get out of town till the waters receeded. Instead, we decided to drive up early Saturday morning. On Friday night we went to see Toy Story 3 and y'all it was SO cute. I got all emotional at the end and had to fight the tears.
Anyhoo, early Saturday morning we drove to Baton Rouge so that we could hold this little pumpkin.
She loves to sleep. LOVES. TO. SLEEP. And she isn't really all that interested in food. She'd rather sleep.
This is Olivia's big brother and big sister, Evan & Emily, with their Uncle Grant.
Be still my heart.
We had a great 4th of July with the family. Hotdogs, steaks, corn, baked potatoes, chips, banana pudding.... I was in heaven. Plus I held a sleeping baby for hours. It was good, quality time with Grant's mom and dad, brother, sister-in-law and the THREE kids. Our Louisiana trip was short but sweet!
We drove back late Sunday night. Grant and I had agreed as we started on our road trip back that we were not going to stop the whole way. About three and a half hours into it, however, my bladder began to disagree with that plan. I cracked up as I entered Burger King bathroom at 10:30pm in Winnie, Texas and I realized that there were 5 stalls and STILL a line of women waiting. We are funny creatures. On our way back into town, we stopped and caught the tail end of Jim & Liz's 4th of July party. It was fun to visit with them. We didn't end up leaving their house till after midnight. I was TIRED.
Yesterday, I headed over to my mom and dad's. My sister and her husband are in Mexico celebrating their 10th anniversary so my parents are keeping the kids. Yesterday it was SO CUTE when Jaclyn called and got to talk to Grace on the phone.
Grace had alot to say to her mommy.
She is doing just fine! :)
Later, we spent the day in the pool and Lindsee came over and spent the day with us too. LThat afternoon, my dad set up a tent in the living room for Grace. Lindsee and I had a grand-old time in the tent.
After our tent party, Lindsee and I went to El Gallo with her parents because EL GALLO IS A CLASSIC STANDARD THAT WILL GO DOWN IN JEN'S HISTORY BOOKS AS ONE OF THE TOP TEN BEST HOUSTON MEXICAN RESTAURANTS OF ALL TIME.
Anyhoo, now I am at work and getting the feeling that this week is going to be as crazy as last week. C'est la vie.
I missed y'all!!
