Parties, Picnics and Papaws!

The last couple of weeks have been wild around here. I’ve been gone for a week and leave again tomorrow for another few days.  This pregnant woman is TIRED.  Greg’s been holding down the fort at home and taking care of my sweet boy!

I arrived back in Cabot around midnight Friday night, and we’ve had a full and wonderful Saturday!  Jake and I met Greg at the donut shop Saturday morning. Jake LOVES donuts and chocolate milk – a special treat he rarely gets. But, given that he has used the potty several times now and was good for Daddy all week, I thought it was a cause for celebration!  Jake and I had to run to Wal-Mart and then we had a birthday party at 11.  His buddy, Avery, from church turned 1, so we had to celebrate with her!

This afternoon, we had a Sunday school class picnic.  Jake had so much fun on the playground and running around with all his friends.  We have a great class and really enjoying spending time with friends and their kids.

On another note, Greg’s parents are going to retire from farming after this year. I am sure it is bittersweet, because its definitely been a way of life for many years!  But, they have worked hard and have earned the opportunity to enjoy some time to themselves.  Greg decided to take Jake out to the farm one afternoon this week and get some pictures.  I’ll post a few here…
