The one with the mother-son roadtrip

Our weekend kicked off with an impromptu mother/son road trip to birmingham. I was down thereWednesday for a meeting and found out that my graduate school assistant program director was going to be in town later in the week to lead a workshop. I was scheduled to be off with P Friday, so attending the workshop was not in the cards...but there was a breakfast the next morning that was more of a potential. So I called our sweet friends Meredith and Elliott to see what their weekend looked like and I was so excited to find out that 1) they were in town, and 2) Mere was helping direct an ArtPlay production of Fame Friday night. 

So P and I loaded up the car (I am getting better at packing for overnights with a baby...which means less unnecessary stuff packed) and headed down to Birmingham Friday evening. This was after a fun catch-up lunch with Stephanie and Amy Guckenberger while Steph was in town from Charlotte. We got to the play about half way through. First I fed P on a bench outside and then we snuck into the back for the last 15 minutes or so. Perry loved it. He watched the singing and dancing intently and even laughed at the dialog after he heard the rest of the audience laugh. It was precious. He stayed up way past his bedtime and was a trooper while we all went for coffee and dessert post-production. 
Mere - thanks for letting us come stay with you!

Saturday morning we met up with some birmingham genetic counselors and my program assistant director Sonja for breakfast at Another Broken Egg in Mountain Brook. So yummy. 

The rest of the weekend was pretty uneventful. Some late afternoon shopping with Adrienne on Saturday and lunch with our lifegroup on Sunday. Then housework and getting things together for the week ahead (and writing this blog). Now it is off to bed...to be up at 5:30 a.m. for week 4 of couchto5k.

P picked out a new book at the bookstore

P is getting into everything. He pulled this basket out of the coffee table and began exploring. I think we have some babyproofing ahead of us.
