Oh what a wonderful weekend! Our friends, the Luck's just bought their first home. They planned a housewarming party for next weekend that we are unable to attend due to a prior engagement. I really wanted to see the house, particularly before Mila is born, so we made the trek to Austin this past weekend.
We originally wanted to leave Friday after work so we would have all day Saturday to hang out, but as the day approached, we realized that neither of us were capable of staying awake that late (it's a 3.5-hour drive). So instead, we woke up and got on the road first thing Saturday morning. We arrived right at lunch time. Logan and JR were on their way back from Logan's teeball game, so Sara gave us the grand tour. They had the home built almost to their specifications, but left a few details to change themselves in hopes of saving some money. They were hoping to finish everything before we arrived, but ran out of time. It was okay though because the place looks great! I think they've done a great job with everything.
JR got home before we got to the second floor so he joined the tour. After we had seen everything, we headed out to lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Everyone partook in a few spirits. I was very jealous of Travis and JR's beeritas. I want to try one so bad. It will have to wait a couple more months though. I am sure if I drink one of those soon after having Mila I will be severely plastered with just one. The food was good, and the kids entertained themselves with Aiden's toys.
After lunch we went back to their house and a couple of their friends came over. The guys went off to play disk golf in the gale force winds while the ladies stayed behind with the kids. At first I was annoyed at the prospect since I thought I would have Travis around to help me with Aiden. I am just SO tired lately. I have no energy. But! It turned out great because Aiden had Landry and Logan to play with - and all of Logan's toys. In fact, that was such a relief all weekend. I didn't have Aiden constantly hanging on my leg. He always wants me to play with him, or he wants to show me something. All of which I appreciate and I do not ignore, but sometimes it's nice to just sit. Particularly when you are 30 lbs heavier than normal. Yes 30 lbs. I'm probably going to hit the 40 mark in the next month. Poo.
One of Sara's friends has an 8-week old son. He reminded me so much of Aiden. He was so sweet. It really made me look forward to having Mila. Though things will be a little different this time: 1) We have a better idea of what we are doing. 2) We're having a girl this time, so the clothing situation will be different. Ahhh! I can't wait!! Well, I'm not particularly looking forward to the birthing process, but the end result will be awesome, I'm sure.
For dinner, we went back out for Mexican food with everyone. That meal turned out to be a little stressful. Aiden didn't take a nap that day AND we left for dinner when Aiden would normally be going to bed for the night. Sara, Landry, Aiden and I ended up leaving before everyone else. I got Aiden to bed as soon as we got home and he passed out immediately. Sara and I stayed up chatting until the guys got home. Travis passed out immediately as well.
Sunday I slept until 7:15. Travis and Aiden got up around 7:45. I would have preferred to sleep later than that, but it was way better than getting up at 5. Blech. Travis and JR got us donuts and kolaches for breakfast, then we went to the playground. After the kids had played on everything for a bit, we walked over to the community pool. It was so nice. I really appreciated having other kids around for Aiden to play with. There was a kiddie pool that didn't get any deeper than a foot and a half, so I didn't have to get in and hold up Aiden the entire time. The water WAS freezing though. We eventually had to force the kids out because they were all turning purple.
FABULOUS WEEKEND. Thanks so much Sara and JR!!
