Weekend Fun

Sunday, July 19, 2015
We have had a super fun weekend. It started with a brief one night trip down to Birmingham on Friday to visit with our good friends Meredith and Elliott and meet and love on their two month old baby girl, Hadley. It was so nice to catch up on life. And baby snuggles are the best. Perry was much better this time about the whole mommy holding another baby thing which was good. He was pretty smitten by baby Hadley...always wanted to know where she was.

Mere and I talked about how when we pictured ourselves in college all grown up that we could easily picture us working and married but we never pictured life with kids. I guess it was just too far in the future. And here we are roomies 8 years later with our babies.

Saturday morning we woke up and had a yummy breakfast and then all headed to the Birmingham Zoo. It was fun but oh my goodness it was HOT. We survived about 3 hours and were all but puddles as we made our way to the car. We got to see lots though including a sea lion show and lion feeding and even got to throw some apples to an elephant.  Perry's favorite was seeing the lions eat.

Perry was asleep in the awesome air conditioned car before we made it out of Birmingham. He had had a big morning. We all made it out hydrated and not sunburned which was a win in my books. When we got home it was straight into the bath for this sweaty and sunscreen coated boy.

Thanks Mere and Elliott for hosting us while taking care of a 9 week old baby. It was so fun!

We ended our Saturday with a little more fun and took Perry to see the movie Inside Out at the theater. Its his first real movie minus a $1 movie excursion one summer morning last year. This theater had more than a couple people in it. P did awesome and sat and watched the whole thing while munching on popcorn for dinner. I think he really enjoyed it. And we did too. It was really cute. 

Excited to have reached the stage that we can start going to animated movies as a family.
