Another great weekend on the books! Boy am I tired, it's a good thing I only have to work a couple days this week!
It was SO nice spending time with my family this weekend. I've been having a hard time being away since Phillip was born, and I finally felt like I was able to get some good bonding time in this weekend. I think it's safe to say he loves his Auntie, we had a lot of fun. He is such a happy boy! He just loves splashing in the water and bouncing his toes in the sand. Clearly, he takes after his Momma who loves the beach!
The traffic getting out of the city on Friday evening was really bad, so we arrived later than we anticipated. When we finally made it to camp, everyone was still up around the campfire, so as soon as we had our tent set up we joined them.
Saturday morning after breakfast, we went out on the boat for a little wakeboarding. It was so fun! I was a little nervous, because I had only gone once in the past year. But it's like riding a bike, and I had no trouble. Someday, I need to have a boat, because wakeboarding and spending time out on the lake makes me so happy, and I can't help but smile and have fun.
Later that afternoon we took an intermission from our boating weekend, to go to my friend Alex's. It was her son's 3rd birthday, and they were having a big party for him at the house. Before I moved, I spent a lot of time with them. I can't believe Ryan is already 3, it seems like just yesterday I was heading to the hospital the day he was born. The party was really fun. There was a big bouncy house/water slide for the kids and beer for the grownups! What else could you ask for? We weren't able to stay long, but I was so happy to see Alex and the kiddos. I held baby Paige, so Alex could play hostess, and I decided she is the most perfect little baby girl I've ever seen. (I can say that since I don't have a niece of my own, yet)!
Once we were back on the lake, we made dinner, visited, and caught up with old friends. It was so nice to see friends I haven't been able to see much since I moved. When I lived with Josh and Christine a few years ago, I spent a ton of time with all of them. It was great to catch up and reminisce about old times.
Sunday was another great day. In the morning, I played on the beach with Phillip while Christine and Josh packed up their camping stuff. It was so nice having so much uninterrupted time with him. I can't believe how big he's gotten! He's full of personality and always smiling.
We spent the afternoon lounging on the boat relaxing, and before we knew it, it was time to pack up and head back to the fog. I'm so happy I get to see my family again this weekend and spend even more time with Phillip!
I didn't take a single picture this weekend, but thankfully my sister did so I have a few of her pictures to share.

|Pooped! Nap time on the beach!|
And an unrelated picture, just because it's so darn cute...Phillip started eating solids last week, so my sister made him squash from the garden. He wasn't too sure about it at first!
|obsessed with his expression-- too stinkin' cute!|
I hope you all had a great weekend!
