Weekend Update

I know it's been a while since I've posted, but I've been out of town and took a little blog break during the trip. So.... update time!

Last Wednesday Henry & I took the train to St. Louis in preparation for my Grandma's 90th birthday party. I wanted to get there a few days early to help get everything ready, but knew that I couldn't get much done with Timmy there, so just Henry and I went early. Unfortunately I came down with quite the cold and didn't end up getting as much accomplished as I'd hoped, and spent most of Thursday laying around. Friday was a bit better and Henry and I went to the Soulard Farmers Market with my aunts to buy flowers for party. We took them back to my Aunt Paddy's to make the table arrangements and also had a lovely lunch with the birthday girl! After a quick rest for Henry (and some shopping for me!!) my Dad and I went over to Granny Franny's for the pre-party party!

Henry's first train ride!!!

Most of Saturday was spent getting ready for the festivities. I'm going to do an entirely separate post about my lovely Grandma and her party, but I will say the party was lovely. Everyone seemed to have a great time, but most of all my amazing Grandma had a blast. It was a fantastic night that I know I'll remember the rest of my life. Oh.... there was one little downside. Towards the end of the night someone was running around like a crazy man, tripped & split his eye open, and now we have this...

Poor pup! I tell you, sometimes being a boymom is stressful stuff!

Sunday we slept in late (ok I slept in late! the boys had a rough night and I was up a lot, so Tim took them in the AM and I went back to sleep!), visited with some family, and then headed back to Chicago. No trip to/from St. Louis is complete without a Steak N Shake visit so we stopped on the way home. It was delicious as always! I took a picture of Henry while we were there and thought it would be fun to compare to Steak N Shake Timmy around the same age. I think Timmy was a month or so older, but still a fun comparison!

We're home now and plan on relaxing today and getting back into the swing of things. It was a great weekend, but now it's back to normal. Happy Monday friends!!!
