Friday night was family night, ordering Casey's General Store taco pizza (another favorite, but I was so full after lunch I only had 1 piece) and watching tennis. It was my dad, mom, brother, and me just sitting around talking, oh and did I mention I think I fell asleep around 8pm! It felt so good to be home, Saturday morning I woke up with a smile on my face at 5:30am! I couldn't fall asleep because I was starving, so I went upstairs and found some Lucky Charms! Then went back for a nap (my favorite Saturday morning routine!)
Saturday Jill met me at the Super Target in Des Moines to help me register for baby stuff. I've been putting it off, because I can't imagine we need anything after my brother and sister-in-law gave us LOTS of great baby items, but 94 items later I have completed my registry at Target. It was so much fun, Jill knew the in's and out's of everything from baby nipples to baby bibs. She had a reason for everything and it was so helpful. I feel like I've taken my first child class! Sorry for the blurred picture, that is Jill taking the picture with her baby in her arms...multi tasking! Thanks so much Jill...I had a blast!
I spent some more time at my Grandma's showing her all that I registered for and ate a chicken sandwich from a gas station (another favorite). We did a devotional and I checked out her basement and organizing and de-cluttering process.
My mom hosted a family gathering Saturday night and I think there were about 20 people there! All of my family was there, including all the women in the family on both sides. We took a few family shots and Jill and Tricia also came! The food was great, but the conversation and pictures were even better! Here are a few group shots.All of the Women on my mom's side.

Sunday I went to early church with my Aunt Debbie and then she treated me to a nice little Bread and Breakfast breakfast in Norwalk. It was the best Cinnamon french toast! We had great conversation and I really enjoyed the extra time I was able to spend with her. She also took me on a tour of Norwalk which was hit by a tornado a few weeks ago and the changes at the middle and high school. I can't believe it's been 10 years since I was in high school....where does the time go?
Next, I proceeded to tell my parents that I could walk 9 holes of golf if they wanted to go. Well, at 11am-1pm it is really HOT. I lasted 3-4 holes and then dad had to take over the push cart. We had a great time, I came in last place, but I did par 2 holes! It is a memory that I will never forget.
Wow, what a weekend, are you all still there? It was a fun family and friends filled weekend and it was totally worth $500 if that is what I have to pay next time.
