weekend update

We had the most wonderful relaxing weekend that we have had in a long time and I am so thankful we were home so much of it. I have been feeling like we are always gone somewhere, doing something and miss out on those nights where we just make plans on the fly. Like Friday night, when we went to see BrieAnna play at Mocha & Music with Christina and ended up with a group under the stars at New Holland.

Saturday night proved to be much of the same when Justin & Jamie called us around 7ish to meet them at the Brewery...2 nights in a row was perfect. They brought their new little girl, who definitely takes the cake for being my favorite little one right now. Who says you can't mix babies and breweries? They are the most laid back parents and I can honestly say that they are the same Justin & Jamie as always. We didn't get a picture of the 4 of us but Jamie was kind enough to snap some pics of Alexis with us :)

what a sweetie, she was so chill the whole night, almost like she knew that was what you do at New Holland, just relax!

As for Sunday, after church we vegged ALL afternoon, didn't go anywhere or do anything beyond a walk down to the Post Office & a nap on the couch with the sun pouring in. At night we had our long awaited small group cookout on Dana & Randy's back porch and since everyone has been gone on vacations and doing summertime things, there was much catching up to be done. Hard to believe that we have been together for close to 2 years as a group and a new couple will be joining us this fall who just celebrated their first anniversary which I think will add alot of life to the group.

ended the night with choosing this new layout from Shabby Blogs since I didn't win any of the contests I entered. I figure, if you can't beat em, join em. Let me know what you think!
