After the baby shower our friends the Tunks (also at the baby shower) and my family went to my sister's boyfriends house for a little bit to visit. We all started getting hungry so we headed back to my house for spaghetti and homemade meatballs, salad, garlic bread and some tapenade. I tried my hand at making meatballs for the first time. Everyone seemed to really like them (I don't like ground meat, so I didn't try them LOL). It was a very nice dinner.
After dinner we played Domino's for awhile, while the girls played the Wii. Our friends ended up crashing at our place and in the morning the guys ran to the store for breakfast stuff. We had a breakfast (well, brunch or lunch really) of scrambled eggs, sausage and hashbrown casserole. Yummy! After letting our food settle for a few minutes the adults took a turn playing the Wii. :-)
Such a good weekend. Hows was yours?

It rained almost all day on Friday so we took the girls to watch Alvin and the Chipmunks 2. It was cute. Then back to grandma's to be lazy some more :-)
Saturday was the day we were coming home. Coming home we don't leave in the middle of the night. We normally wait until early afternoon and make it home around midnight. We weren't really worried considering how well we did on the way down. Well, Hannah said she didn't feel really good, but I just kinda figured she just didn't want to go home. I was wrong. She started throwing up. Oh, fun. After some medicine, she said she was feeling better and wanted to go feed the ducks.
This was before Acacia decided she was brave enought to stand on her own and feed the ducks.
I had promised the girls we would feed the ducks and we hadn't done it yet. So we went and fed the ducks. It was so funny watching Acacia feed the ducks (it was her first time). We get back to grandma's a little later than we wanted (I already had everything packed up and in the car) so we start saying our goodbyes and Hannah starts throwing up again. *sigh* Oh, a 9 plus hour drive home...not going to be fun. So we swipe a roll of paper towels and find a makeshift bucket and hit the road. She was such a trooper. She didn't get sick anymore (thank goodness). She didn't try to eat though either.
Once we hit Georgia we stopped at a McDonald's that had an indoor play area for dinner and let the girls run some energy out. Then on the road again. Apparently with everyone else in the world. The traffic was so bad that through the entire state of Georgia we didn't go over 30 mph. At one point it took us an hour to go 1 mile. 1 MILE!!! We were getting so frustrated. So we decided to put our GPS to work (and throw caution to the wind and trust it). We set it on back roads and took the next exit. Our nine hour drive turned into a 12 hour plus drive. Awesome. Oh, well, at least we made it home. We had a great vacation and can't wait to see them again.
