Baby Play Group

A group of friends met this week for a baby play group. It was more for the adults to have some time to spend together and chat than for the babies to actually "play". I think that it was a success... way to go Ashley! It was kind of funny to see the kids interact with each other. Most of the kids don't really have to share toys at home right now and I could see some assertive streaks coming through Alex as he took toys away from others or as he bulldozed his way through the crowd. We did get a picture of the kidos before they got too distracted and wanted to leave. Here's to many more play groups.

Weekend Getaway

Last weekend we had a chance to take a mini-road trip. This was a trial run to see how it would go if we chanced another one in the future. Overall Alex did great. He was a little tired when we arrived in San Antonio but was a real trooper. We visited the Alamo and the Riverwalk and stayed the weekend with my parents at a timeshare that they have around New Braunfuels. It was fun to have a little time to relax and spend time as a family.

Fall Cometh....

I love fall. This is a time that I look forward to in the year. It means that Halloween is coming and then Thanksgiving and AHHHH-- Christmas. This season means cooler weather (finally) and then spending lots of time with family and friends. So in honor of the fall season, I became more festive. After seeing pictures of Spencer with his cute pumpkin hat from Target, I too rummaged through the dollar bins to see what I could find. I have to agree with Ginger. Target dollar bins are awesome!!!

I also grabbed a shirt and a hat for Alex to wear. I have to admit that it was more for my enjoyment than his. I did put the hat on him and wheeled him around the store while I did my shopping yesterday. It lightened my mood to look down at him and I chuckled to myself to see him looking so festive. Every now and then I caught a few people smile and laugh at the sight as I paraded him proudly through the aisles. Why, who could not help but smiling at a sight like this...

Date Night

Last Friday Eric called me from work and asked if I wanted to go on a date. Are you kidding me??? I thought that I had died and gone to heaven. I couldn't believe that we were going on an actual date.
He further intrigued my interest when he called back and said that we had to be somewhere by 6 pm, but he wouldn't say what we were doing. My curiosity was peaked and I tried to subtly get the information out. He had zipped lips and no information was leaking through. He said we needed to pick something up from one of our friends houses and and we traveled over to pick up what we needed. What are we doing? What do we need to pick up? Well my questions were answered when our friends jumped into the car with us. It was them that we needed to pick up. We were going on a double date.

Bowling, dinner, 3 rounds of board games and about 6 hours later our double date ended. It was so much fun, even if I did have to wake up at 6 the morning after. I am just glad that I chose to wear socks.
