Over the river and through the g-ma's (and g-pa's) house we go!

This weekend was a BIG "first" for Mark and I Wyatt. Wyatt spent the night at my parent's...for 2 nights!! We had an incredible busy weekend and not much of it was kid friendly. (By that I mean none of the activities planned would have been fun for him, not that we were "going wild." HA HA HA!)

Saturday morning I went to our monthly "mama" breakfast. It was so good getting to chat with everyone. We had missed a few months throughout the summer so it was nice to get back together. I didn't get a picture. ;(
We always eat at the same place at the same time. Creatures of habit I guess!?!? We meet at 9:30....11:30 came and went, we all looked at our watches and knew we had to face Saturday. LOL! Just kidding, it's just always fun to chat, eat, laugh....ya know!?!!?

Anyway, after breakfast I rushed home to pack Wyatt's bag. He spent the morning with Mark just hanging out at home. We ran a few errands and then loaded up for the trip to my parent's house. Wyatt slept almost the entire way. Phew! Mark can thank me and my psycho planning for that one. ;) We dropped Wyatt off and got him all settled in. Which doesn't take long considering he loves my parent's....and their pups! He was running all over the place.

Mark and I came into town to attend a surprise going away party for our friends. Malerie and Brent will be traveling with their jobs soon so another friend/family threw them a party! Neither one of them likes to be the center of attention so it was pretty funny to see their faces. Sadly though Mark and I didn't get to stay long because we had to be back in St.Louis that evening for EXPEDITEstl.

We grabbed a bite to eat and hit the road back to St.Louis. We headed straight to a radio station in Westport. We have a radio ad for EXPEDITEstl on a Saturday night trivia show and we were guests! It was so fun! I was REALLY nervous in the beginning but it was a lot of fun! I hope we get to do it again. We were the "real deal." The microphone, headphones, and sitting in the studio-SO COOL!

We didn't get home until 11:30pm, I might have fallen asleep in the car on the way home. Ooops, good thing I have a great husband. He carried me into bed and I didn't even move until I rolled over Sunday morning and looked at the clock. WE WERE GOING TO BE LATE FOR CHURCH!!!

I woke Mark up and we rushed big time to make it on time. We made it! I am so glad we make it such a  priority to go to church. We could have easily slept in...since it was just him and I....but we didn't! The sermon was perfect! I am so happy we were there. Right after church we met some friends for lunch at a fun deli close to Mark's school. I can't believe I have no pictures. I guess since I didn't have the CUTEST kid with me all weekend it didn't even cross my mind. ;(

After lunch Mark met some classmates at school to study. (this week is finals) I headed to Brittany's house to work on Elyse's baby shower. We made some really cute stuff! The shower is Sept. you will have to wait for those pictures until then! We finished up our crafts just in time to head back to church. Mark and I have been attending classes Sunday night at church. They are informative classes about the church...classes set up for people to attend before the join to fully understand what the church stands for. It's really interesting and so awesome how it's set up.

After the class we were wiped out! We hadn't been home since 8:30 that was almost after 7pm. (like I said...NOT a kid friendly day) We grabbed a bite to eat and headed home. Our poor pups had been outsude all day (thank godness it was BEAUTIFUL) so we took a walk around the neighborhood. It was a sweet time. It was just like the "old days" right before Wyatt was born. We walked the dogs almost every night. After a few rounds we came inside and Mark began to study. I went to bed and worked on a few projects in bed, ate a snack, and fell asleep before 8:30.

I woke this morning SO READY TO SEE WYATT!!!!! My dad dropped him off about 8:30am....he cried when Poppie left. ;( I guess he had a great time with my parent's.

They said he was great! (What g-parent's wouldn't say that!?!?!?) He played so hard. He helped Eesie water the flowers. They pushed him in their swingset a lot. He got to eat more ice cream than he does at home. Wyatt learned how to unlock and open their backdoor. ;/ YIKES! He had lots of snuggle time with Aunt Erin and Uncle Billy too!

A few iPhone pictures sent from my parent's:
