This weekend we had to chance to take a much needed trip to Lexington. Of course it was late by the time we made it on Friday, but Eric and I used the grandparents as babysitters and watched The Help on the portable DVD Player. Oh how our dates have changed...ha!
On Saturday we enjoyed a nice breakfast before we went to visit with my Mimi and Papaw. Eli got a little spoiled with new toys and, of course, loved all the extra attention.
It melts my heart watching these two generations bond. It's a precious relationship that too few families have the opportunity to experience. After visiting for a couple of hours, we headed to Nicholasville for another cookout with my mom's family. I have 14 aunts and uncles, 21 cousins, 20 second cousins plus spouses...CRAZY! Even though it's a zoo, it's always to much fun getting together.
Eli and Wyatt are two of the youngest and are just six days apart. Needless to say, there is always someone play with. Oh yeah, there's always something to do too....for example, ride four-wheelers!
On Sunday my mom and I went to get pedicures then we all rode to Richmond to see my brother and his fiance's new house. We sent the day as a family honoring my dad and arguing (in true sibling fashion.) We ate a nice Mexican dinner before heading back to Bowling Green, which was a miserable ride thanks to an exhausted two year old.
