Plans Are Made

We had an incredibly busy weekend!

Saturday morning we got up bright and early and fixed biscuits and gravy for breakfast and Ross' parents joined us. They hung around long enough for me to give Ross a haircut. Then it was hurry up and get around and head over to Ross' grandparents house for lunch. Then it was hurry home and pack to go to my parents house.

We got to St. Louis around 5ish I guess. Mom was at a meeting in Columbia and Dad had just got home from work. He and Ross got to work on the deck and then my sister and the kids got there too. We ordered some pizza and all had supper. Mom got home and shortly after that Scott got off work from the firehouse and got there too.

Jaimee and I got to sneak away for about an hour and a half for a little retail therapy at Old Navy and Walmart. It feels like it's been forever since we went shopping together and it was so nice.

We all had a big sleepover at Mom and Dad's so we could have our vacation planning meeting on Sunday. We were actually all in bed and asleep before midnight! Jaimee and Scott took the back bedroom. Hannah and Jack got an air mattress in the office floor. Isabel was in the crib and Alexis on the pull out love seat in the playroom. And Ross and I had an air mattress in the living room floor!

Sunday, Scott had to go to work and Dad and Ross got started working on the deck right away. Tim, Sarah and the kids came around 11:30 as well as Sera Kate. We got started with our planning session and lined out all the details of meals and sleeping arrangements and so forth and so on for vacation. We had lunch after and then finally headed home around 5. We were pooped last night by the time we got home!

In 12 more days, this is where I'll be laying my head to sleep:
And this is where we'll be gathering to prepare some delicious meals together:
And this is where we'll be eating them:
And when we don't want to be at the beach, we can always swim here:
And when we are completely water logged, we can hang out here:
