>> Tuesday, December 10, 2013 – Thanksgiving
We have had a very fun influx of house guests the last few weeks!
Thanksgiving weekend our friends Anna, Scott and baby Ben came to visit. (These are our friends we went to Hawaii with last Thanksgiving, New Orleans with before that and Italy before that).
We celebrated our Thanksgiving on Friday and all of us were proud we didn't make ourselves sick at all. We went easy on the heavy dishes.
We did however make ourselves sick when we went to Salt Lick BBQ the next day. You can only practice self restraint for so long...
Scott and Evan got to go to Evan's favorite Ranger Creek distillery.
Evan got some practice bouncing a baby on his knee when we ate breakfast at the Guenther House. Evan's legs never stay still anyway, so really, its the perfect match. PS, isn't Ben the cutest?
I hit 30 weeks that day, which I happily celebrated with eggs and bacon- and okay, a bit of waffle. It was delicious.
We went up to Gruene and checked out the sights and sounds (there were few) of the Gruene Hall, the Water Tower and the Guadalupe River.
It was beautiful- and about 80 degrees!
I love this picture! I vote Christmas card cover!
I am not taller than Anna. I was standing on a hill- a trick I should remember!
It looks like we had non-stop activities, but between my nap schedule and Ben's, we shot for leaving the house once a day- which was more than fine with me! I'm tired.
It was so fun to have them visit! We all wanted to go somewhere together this fall, but they had travel plans and we were supposed to drive to Florida. Their trip fell through, and it turns out at 30 weeks, I was not up for a 17 hour drive (imagine that). Anyway, the stars aligned and they were able to come to us instead.
Having a 9 month old in our house for a weekend was quite an eye opener. I started to feel bad, as Evan and I weren't much help to them. Mostly we stared at each other with wide eyes and gaping mouths. Ben is an adorable happy baby- we just have no idea what we're in for!!!
