Girls Weekend in Savannah

This past weekend I went to Savannah with two of my dearest friends, Kelly and Arlyn. We had an absolute blast! We stayed at the Olde Harbour Inn (which is a bed & breakfast) right on East River Street. Thanks to my fabulous hubby for solo parenting for a couple of days!

You can't have a girls weekend without a trip to the spa! So much fun!

Going out to dinner Saturday night
We had a great time! Savannah is a beautiful city with lots to do. However, the best part was just hanging out with friends without hearing "mommy" every 5 seconds:-)

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday afternoon we ventured into the cool air and gentle breeze to find a pumpkin. Ethan had a great time picking out a pumpkin, playing on the playground, talking to the animals, and watching the pumpkin cannon send pumpkins hundreds of feet into the air.

The pumpkin cannon was LOUD, so daddy and Ethan had to cover their ears.

Animals, hot dogs, rides, and elephant ears!

Sunday night we went to the South Carolina State Fair. Ethan had a great time! We saw animals, ate lots of yummy food, and played in the "kiddie" section. All together, we spent entirely too much money, but had a blast!

You had to come down the spiral slide to exit the fun house.

Ethan and daddy had to check out the super slide. You rode down on a potato sack that had fur on the bottom side. They flew!

Patiently waiting for his elephant ear

He said, "Yeah, it is all mine!" But was disappointed when he found out he had to share with mommy and daddy and even more so when we told him he could not lick the sugar off of the entire thing!

Game Day Saturday

This past Saturday was a busy day for us. Of course, it was Game Day for OU football so we decked out in our shirts and took a family picture.

Being Silly

Saturday morning (pre-game time) we went to the park. The weather was beautiful, it wasn't too crowded and Ethan had a blast.

This is my favorite picture. He looked over his shoulder at me and I just happened to snap at the right moment.

Saturday afternoon we went to Chuck E. Cheese with our friends Mark, Jenny, and Calvin. It was horribly crowded and we did not stay very long.

Overall it was a great but busy day. This Saturday is OU vs. Texas at noon, so the Sooner pride will be flowing! So, I would not recommend calling between 12:00 and 3:00.

Playing catch up

I know I have been slack about updating the blog lately and for that I am sorry. Here are some fun, random pictures of Ethan and some pictures of the view I enjoyed while on my work trip to Colorado Springs. Enjoy!

Updates - I am now 15 weeks pregnant and feeling good. Brian was moved to a new position at work. Same lab, different group and position. He started this past Monday and so far so good. The best part about this move is he will no longer have to work weekends!!

The view from the balcony of my room. We were at an elevation of 6,200 feet and the highest point of the mountain you see was Pike's Peak at over 14,000 feet.

Helping mommy wash dishes...well, really playing in the soap.

Enjoying an after dinner treat!
