About 2 weeks ago, we had a crazy busy, and absolutely amazing weekend!!! On Friday, my Mother-in-Law and our niece, Charlotte, flew in from Virginia. We grabbed lunch, took Charlotte shopping for her upcoming birthday, and then we headed out to take our maternity pictures. Since I have zero patience… here is a nursery sneak peek with some of my favorite maternity pictures!
On Saturday, we headed over to my mom’s house because she threw us a baby shower! It was so much fun to see everyone, and to celebrate Aubrey! I was absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of love I felt from everyone there as we all shared in the excitement as we anticipate her arrival! We received so many generous gifts, we honestly could not be more thankful for each and every one! Can we also take a look at the decorations and the food?! Apparently my mom and sister are pros at baby showers that look like they took them right off Pinterest!
Also fail for me… I had my mom and my mother in law in the same place with me at once and failed to get a picture with them both at the same time!! These photo opportunities are not easy to come by when your Mother-in-Law lives 11 hours away! So mom and mom, keep this is mind for when Aubrey is born!! I want a picture with the three of us (we can even have Aubrey in it!!)
After the shower on Saturday, we had my dad and another couple take my mom out to dinner for her 50th birthday!! Little did she know, while they were out, we were transforming the house yet again for a surprise party! Again, I failed at pictures. I wanted a picture with my family, and a picture with Paul’s family, and I got neither. Too much excitement I guess.
Sunday, we finally relaxed a bit! We headed over to Nana’s house in New Smyrna, and afterwards we headed to the beach. It was a gorgeous day out, and it was so fun to just relax and spend time with family. After the beach, we headed to dinner. Paul’s parents and Charlotte, were not in town long enough, but fortunately it won’t be long before they’re here again… this time to meet their newest granddaughter!! 🙂
So that was it. One amazing, eventful, exhausting weekend with the ones we love that wasn’t quite long enough!!
