Weekend in Ohio

Garrett and I flew to Ohio last Thursday to celebrate babies and graduations with my favorite girlfriends and spend time with my family.  It was my first time flying solo with Garrett and luckily it was a super short flight, but he did really well overall.  I tried to schedule our flights around his naptimes, and I’m happy to report that he slept on both!

My Dad picked us up from the airport on Thursday afternoon and we met my Mom for lunch on our way back to their house.  Garrett thoroughly enjoyed his grilled cheese sandwich and mandarin oranges, and was happy to be able to move around and play afterwords.  On Thursday evening my Grandma,

G and his Great Grandma Ruth

and sister in law came over for dinner and got to spend some QT with the Little Man as well!  G loved being chased around and entertained by his Aunt Manda!

He also got to play a lot with Grandma Pam

and Grandpa Paul finally got to show Garrett his backhoe!  Even though he wasn’t to sure about it this time…

 we think he’ll warm up to it by next time.

  He spent time with Uncle Tim, Uncle Randy and Cousin Bodie

and LOVED the big back yard he had to crawl around in!

We also got to catch up with a lot of the Brunner’s during my cousin’s engagement party, Tim and I ran a 5K to benefit our old Elementary School, and I got to hang out with my best friends at Jess’s Baby Shower! (She’s due on July 5th with a little girl!)  We also celebrated Amanda’s graduation from CSU!  Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of all 5 of us, but it was so great to catch up with everyone!

We flew back to Charlotte early Sunday morning so I could spend Mother’s Day with our little family and it was everything I could have hoped it would be.  The house was clean when I got home and Dan had bought me some Stargazer Lily’s….my favorite, along with a card from him and a card from Garrett.  He also hung my pictures in my stairwell for my gallery wall that I have been meaning to do for months now and I didn’t cook or do any dishes all day long.  I even got to nap!  It was a perfect ending to an already great weekend, and I feel so lucky to be this little guy’s Momma 🙂
