Well Mom and Dad ended off an interesting week at work (to say the least!) but preparing to make a trip to Ohio, where Mom's family lives. Our first stop was to drop the dogs off at the pet place so that they could get settled for their weekend.
Once we had checked the dogs in and got them settled, we began the trip to Ohio. Although it is only a little over a three hour trip, it sure seemed like a lot longer to Mom and I. Mom was careful about drinking too much and only had to make one stop on the way down. We thought that was pretty good. Mom and Dad got to spend some time with the family before heading to bed to prepare for their big day on Saturday. The whole crew was there: Mamaw and Papaw, Uncles and Aunts and four cousins. What a blast!
On Saturday, the girls went over to prepare for the shower, while the guys stayed at home before coming later at the start of the shower. Mamaw did a wonderful job and as usual, the food was amazing, but she always makes so much! Friends and family were amazing and glad to see Mom and Dad. It was a lot of fun. Check out some of the guests, kids playing, and wonderful gifts we received from the shower . . .
What great people we are surrounded by! Well that was by no means the end of the day . . . since Mamaw and Papaw did not get to celebrate Cousin's 2nd birthday earlier in the month, we all celebrated for him together. Mamaw made a wonderful truck cake, since he is in love with trucks. It was a fun but as you will see, some people had fun, while others napped and relaxed from a long busy day.
All in all, what a wonderful weekend we all had. The SUV was so packed with gifts that Mom and Dad had to unload before Dad could go pick up the dogs this evening. It took a little while to unload and we just piled the gifts in my room until Mom gets a chance to really organize. She cannot wait! It will have to wait a little while though because tomorrow is Mom and Dad's 1st wedding anniversary. With all the busyness with preparing for me and with craziness at work, Mom and Dad are not sure what they will do to celebrate but Mom did lay the wedding cake out to defrost so that they can share that together. They have had a wonderful first year together and wish everyone the same happiness.
