Crazy Weekend - and Another Blogger Friend

What a weekend we have had. Saturday I ran around doing all kinds of errands and then that night we went to a party (with Alex). Of course he was a hit. Here are some pictures from the party.

Then, this morning, we left at around 8:00 to head to Columbus. We were going to my aunt and uncle's house for a Fourth of July party/family get together. But - we took a little detour before getting to their house.

We got to meet Crystal and Sophie!!! This is blogger friend #2 that I've met so far. Let me just tell you - Sophie is SOOO beautiful!! I just could hardly stand it. And Crystal - she is just as she is on her blog - she is sweet, gracious, and just lovely. Jay, Alex and I had a really nice time hanging out and getting to talk to Crystal. (her hubby and son were out at church so I didn't get to meet sweet Caleb!!) It's amazing how we get to know each other through these blogs and become almost instant friends.

Crystal - thank you so much for opening your home to us. It was so nice to meet you and your sweet daughter. We had a great time, and we hope to see you again.

Here are some pictures from today.

This is the best (and one of the only) pictures I got of Alex and Sophie. Look at the smile on that precious one!!

Here's Sophie trying to escape from Alex. I don't blame her - Alex got a little rough with his "throwing" of toys.

Hey, Sophie - I know that lady with the camera is crazy but at least you don't have to live with her!

Alex and Grandpa

Alex and Grandma.

This is Alex having his first popsicle. It's hard to tell from these pictures, but he loved it and ended up eating almost the whole thing.

You are so lucky that you and Crystal live cloes by enough to get together. Sophie and Alex look adorable together. I don't live by any blogger friends. Boo Hoo. I did not meet a lot of families from the Northeast. We met a couple from NYC and they came to Savannah's birthday party, but they don't blog. We have friends 5 minutes away who just brought their baby home, but they were friends pre-adoption and baby. It would be fun to have a blogging buddy nearby enough to drive too.

Savannah makes the same face with an ice pop and then comes back for more and eats most of it. I don't know if it is because of the cold or the tartness that she makes that face.

Have a great 4th!
