Weekend Wrap-up

I hope y'all had a great weekend! We did! We started the weekend off with a cookout Saturday night. My brother, who calls himself the Grill Master, grilled some shrimp, ribs, a boston butt, and some chicken. It was delicious!!! Lyllian was so good while everyone was over. Sunday we went to church and then swimming. Lyl LOVED swimming!!

After a day at the pool, I ended my Sunday with a Girls Night Out to see...

And yes, it was WONDERFUL!!! I loved it and I can't believe it was only at No. 3 in the boxoffice over the weekend. In other news, Lyl turned 10 months old Saturday, I'll update that later.

We leave for Mexico in one week from today, so naturally I have already starting packing. This is the first time we have traveled with Lyl. Any suggestions on what I need to make sure and pack? I know the basics, food, formula, diapers, swim diapers, etc...Tell me your suggestions.

Doesn't that look breathtaking??? We are so excited!!!

Mother's Day Weekend

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there. This was my first mother's day and it was truly special! Lyllian sent me some BEE-U-TIFULL flowers with her daddy's help. She also gave me a beautiful heart necklace and ring. We grilled out Saturday with my parents to celebrate. Sunday after church we all went to lunch and then Tim put together Lyllian's wagon. She LOVED her wagon, we walked around the neighborhood while Tim fertilzed the yard. Later this afternoon we went to the park and Lyllian slid down the slide with LOTS of help from her daddy. She had lots of fun. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera and did not get to take any pictures at the park or with her wagon. While giving her a bath Saturday night, Lyllian tried to eat the bubbles, it was so cute, but of course as soon as we got the video camera out, she quit.

We did take this video of her walking behind her lion Saturday, sorry the quality is not great, Tim took it on my camera:

I did take some pictures of her "curly" bathmohawk Saturday night...
