Books, Birthday, and a Baby (Not I)

Hey, good people.  Everybody have a good weekend?

We did.  We had a few things going on that gave us a chance to hang out with some of our peeps...


Friday night we took the little one to the summer reading launch event at the library. They had all kinds of cute things for the kids to do.


My sis-in-law was passing through, so she hung out with us, too.


They had rooms set up with games and goodies.  
(This is M and SIL making snow in the Chronicles of Narnia room.)


They also had a Willy Wonka room complete with candy, giant cupcakes and all kinds of other goodies.  M had fun, and it was a great way to kick off summer reading!

Saturday we had two events - a birthday party and a baby shower.  One of my cousins I grew up with came home (from Virginia) to celebrate his boy's birthday with family.  At Chuck E Cheese!

M with the Birthday Boy

She'd been excited about Chuck E Cheese all week.


I was so glad we were able to spend time with my cousin and his family.  They come home ever so often, but we don't get to see them every time.  I was so thankful for that time.

Then for some adult fun:


My dear friend E is having a baby soon!  Last year around this time, we were wedding dress hunting and showering her as a bride-to-be.  This year, we're awaiting the arrival of her and her husband's BABY GIRL!  My heart is melting already!  

What's even sweeter is that she recently left Atlanta to be closer to family when the baby comes. She now lives just 30 minutes from me -- I CANNOT BE MORE THRILLED.  My dearest friends all live in other states, so now I can see at least one of them more often (and love all over her baby girl)!


As expected, her shower was great.  Lots of people, fun, and FOOD!


I ran into an old cheer squadmate at the shower. 
I'm sure there's a picture of us similar to this from 13 years ago!

Last, but not least, M stayed with my grandmother while I was at the shower.  She picked flowers from Granna's yard, ate popsicles, and was fascinated with a neighborhood cat. She had a great time. (Unfortunately Grandma opted out of a pic.)

My Aunt N also came over, so M was able to spend time with her, too:

I love this pic of these two!

I LOVE that we got to see so much family over the weekend. It was a real treat!

Friday is my last day of work.  No more classrooms, bells, or students until August. Initially I was a bit disappointed about not being able to teach summer school this year...but as summer nears, that disappointment is wearing thin. I am actually very excited about having a couple of months off. I feared I'd be bored, but who was I kidding?  There's enough stuff to do with my little one (and stuff around the house that needs to be done) that will EASILY keep me occupied.  Yay for summer!

The countdown begins...

Have a great week, y'all!
