A Wonderful Weekend

We had an action packed, but very fun weekend. It stared Friday night with a little girl's night out. Sam and I headed down to Destin to see Sex and the City, which was wonderful. The boys watched the kids, bathed them and put them to sleep. While the evening was nothing too extravagant, it was a much needed adult night away from the kiddos. When we got home that night John, Becca and baby Wes arrived for a weekend stay with us all the way from Germany. They will be in the states for 5 weeks while John attends SOS in Montgomery, Alabama.

On Saturday we woke up and had breakfast at the waffle house followed by a few errands. Later in the day we all headed over to the McMenamy's for a surprise BBQ/Pool party for Sam's 30th birthday. I think Sam knew something was up but I don't think she knew the details and I hope we were able to surprise her a bit. We had a wonderful afternoon and evening splashing in the pool, eating, chatting, and playing. Brian did a very good job and everyone had a good time!

On Sunday we headed down to Destin for a little beach action. One of Andrew's friends from work has a house right on the beach so we were back and forth all day. Abby had a blast in the water and was a little fish. She was out jumping waves and kept saying "I don't want to go back to shore yet." John, Becca and Wes were able to come with us for a little while but had to head back to Alabama in the early afternoon. We stayed at the beach all day long and had to drag Abby away. On the way home we stopped at Coldstone Creamery for icecream which hit the spot after being in the sun all day long. Right as we got in the car it started to rain, perfect timing. We all slept well last night after our busy, fun-filled weekend!

The expression says it all.
