What did you do this weekend?

Well, we had a full weekend at our house. On Saturday, my bestie Emily and her family came by to visit the baby on their way out of town. It was hysterical seeing their almost 2 year old around the baby. She was into EVERYTHING. Hubs asked Emily if she did this all the time-ha! Get ready for that one.

After they left, my parents arrived from Birmingham to hover love on Emma. I think they were here for all of 3 minutes before my mom had Emma in her arms. :D I had a list of things I wanted to do this weekend, and since my dad is SUPER ADD (seriously, he cannot sit still for more than 10 minutes) I knew we would get everything accomplished. First we (everyone but mom, since she was sucking the scent off Emma) cleaned out and organized the garage. My dad brought me a freezer for the garage, and we had to make room since the garage was such a disaster area. I loaded that thing up with probably about 39 gallons of breast milk. Awesome! After that, we were gross and tired, so we vegged the rest of the night.
On Sunday we were totally worthless but did venture out to a farmer's market for fresh corn to grill, and we went to Lowe's. I wanted to plant some herbs (read: dad), and we needed a spider bomb for the garage. In our cleaning the day before, we found all kinds of sick a** spiders that needed to die. After dad planted my herb garden, we had an incredible dinner. Husband smoked a Boston butt, and we made baked beans, grilled corn, and brother in law coleslaw. YUM! Since we were beached whales after dinner, all we could do was set off the bomb in the garage and watch TV. That night, my daughter decided to raise hell all night (get ready all you preggos!), so husband and I got all of 2 hours of sleep. She finally slowed her roll around 7 am, and I passed out till 10. Good times.
Monday morning my parents had to leave and while they were walking out and pulling out of the driveway, my mom stopped the car no less than 13 times to get out and come back and give Emma sugar. I told them to move up here, but you know, I think they like giving her back when they are done! :D I almost rolled Emma's bassinet into the guest room for my mom to get her fix. Anyway, we had such fun with the grandparents and I know they had a blast with their love nugget. I think the pics say it all! Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
