Trip to B'ham = fun weekend with the Moore's

I had EVERY intention on writing this post yesterday, but the day got away from me and last night my time was occupied watching BAMA WIN A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP against LSU!!!!  ROLL TIDE!!  21-0.  #14 baby!!!  They deserved every minute of it and to say I am so proud of my tide would be an understatement!!  :)   Anywho, on to the point of the post.  We had one of the most fun weekends we've had in a long time this past weekend.  As I had said in my previous post, our plans of going to stay with the Moore's for New Years got diminished thanks to the crappy cold crud everyone had.  That didn't stop us from just post-poning until the next weekend though.  We were all packed and ready by Friday afternoon and headed that way as soon as Daniel got home from work.  We got there late that night and Logan just couldn't quite hang.  He was already asleep when we got there so we stayed up a little while chatting with Scott and Jessica until we could hardly hold our eyes open any longer. 

We had a lazy p.j.'s morning the next day and let the 2 little guys play a while with one another before we got ready for the day.  They played so well together.  It was so fun watching them interact.  They are 5 weeks apart.  They both had so much fun!! 

After hanging out a while, we got ready for the day.  First stop was yummy Full Moon for some delicious Bar B Q.  One of Daniel's favorite restaurants in B'ham.  After lunch, we headed towards the Galleria area to do a little shopping.  Luckily, we didn't shop till we drop so we went to a park for the boys to have a little fun there.  And boy did they have fun!  It is a park about a mile from their house, so being a stay at home mom to Logan, Jessica frequents these swings often during the warm, sunny days.  I was anxious to see how Hampton was going to like it because the first and only time he has swung was on Christmas morning and as you can see...
well, he wasn't too fond of it.

Jessica takes Logan there quiet a bit and says he LOVES it.  He was definitely a pro at it.  Hampton, on the other hand, not so much.  Mommy didn't let him go quiet so high.  I'm pretty sure Hampton was probably hoping I didn't let him go that high either at this point. ;)  He was pretty fascinated.

Then, Daniel gave him a few pushes and he began to get used to it.

Next thing you know, he was LOVING it!  Yay!

After many attempts to get BOTH boys to look in the SAME direction...best we got. ;)

Proud mommy's with their precious itty bitty's!  Logan (8 months), Hampton (7 months)

We had to get the daddy's in action as well.  We weren't letting them off the hook with no proof of them having fun, too!

Finally, after all the fun park action, we headed back home to get ready for dinner.  Fortunately, we were able to go to dinner with Beth, Breland, Barrett, and baby Booth (Beth is expecting July 4!!)  Beth, Jessica, and I became close friends when we were in Education together at Auburn.  We all graduated at the same time and went our separate ways.  We have done an amazing job with keeping in touch so kudos to us on that one.  It's extremely difficult to ALL get together, but when we do, it's like time never skipped a beat.  I am so blessed to have them in my life even though we don't get to see each other nearly enough.  We shared lots of laughs and smiles at dinner and then it was time to say our good-byes.  :(  However, I am already looking forward to the next gathering when we can all hang out again...whenever that might be.  I LOVE these 2 girls and I LOVE the fact we all have so much in common from education to ALL boys (even though Baby Booth might change that fact here in a few weeks!) being around the same ages.  It is SO fun being with each other!

The next morning we got up, headed to church at Church of the Highlands, and enjoyed some wonderful yummy lunch at Taziki's afterwards before heading back home.  Whew.  It was a busy, but oh so fun weekend and I can't wait to do it again some time soon.  For now, it's back to reality.  Thank you again Scott and Jessica for letting us stay.  Can't wait for next time and the memories we will make!!
