A LONG weekend!

Ok, so due to the fact that I purchased a new camera (I took the Kodak back and bought a Casio Elixim), this post has LOTS of pics!

This weekend was so fun! It was really busy, but we had a great time with lots of friends. Friday night, while Wyatt was having his usual date with his Nonni and Poppa, Morgan, myself, and our friends Jeff and Whitney drove over to Florence and ate at Ricatoni's Italian restaurant. It was HEAVENLY! I had their cheese ravioli, and Morgan had a duck and sausage pasta dish. He really liked it, but I'm not a big fan of duck. I think we will definitely have to make the trip again. It was soo good!

Saturday afternoon, I met my Grandmother and my aunt to go to Menopause the Musical. haha. Since, I'm not close to that time in my life yet, I didn't know how I would relate, but it was HILARIOUS!! There were a few times I could feel my cheeks getting red because I was hearing this in front of my sweet Granny, but I was all in good humor! After that, we went to Cracker Barrel to eat the Saturday Special of Chicken and Rice. It was soo good. I really enjoy spending time with them. There is definitely never a boring moment with the women in my family!
* This is a picture of my aunt Rhonda in front of the Menopause van! We weren't allowed to take pictures, but she got on stage at the end of the show. It was so funny. I wish I had a picture of that. It could be used for blackmail!

After the show, I rushed home to get Morgan and Wyatt to head to Brooke's graduation party. She is our neighbor who just finished nursing school. I am so proud of her! She LOVES kids, and has already gotten at job at the Pediatric ER. She and her mom are so sweet to Wyatt, so I was glad we were able to make it.

Wyatt was ALL OVER the place at the party! I really have to keep my eye on him since he is walking now.

This is sweet little Jessi!  She and her family go to our church and Wyatt LOVES her! Poor girl, he weighs about as much as she does :)

He didn't want her to put him down!

OH, and this little cutie is Anna Grace! Her family lives close to us and they are farmers also. Talk about a mess. She is so funny! It had rained yesterday, so she spent the afternoon playing outside with the boys in the mud puddles! She cracked me up.

This morning after church, we went to eat (notice a common theme? we like to eat around here!) at a local restaurant called the Fried Tomato Buffet. Oh goodness, it is as good as it sounds. However, on Sunday, it is so packed you can hardly get your food. We both had to take turns in the line for about 10 minutes just to get our food!

While I was finishing up, Wyatt got a little rowdy, so Morgan took him outside to walk around. Doesn't it always seem Mama's have to eat last! I don't really mind. So, when I came out I snapped these pics of Wyatt. I loved his little outfit this morning, and I'm sure it will be the last time he will be able to wear it. We had to bring it out again since we are having an unusually cold May here. Today I don't think it even broke 60 degrees!

We attempted to have a movie night tonight, but the stinkin' dvd player died on us! I was so upset, I had rented the Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Last Chance Harvey :( Hopefully we can get it fixed, or get a new one before the movies are due back. Anyway, since we couldn't watch the movies, we fixed popcorn and watched t.v. My child LOVES popcorn!! He is so much like his Daddy it is not even funny! It is so sweet to watch him do things with Morgan. It makes my heart melt.

Well, I guess I'll use tomorrow to rest! Monday is our laundry day around here, so I'm sure there won't be anything too interesting to write about. You never know, I might just think of something!
