Terry Tales

Last Monday we had a little playdate with a little girl who, unbeknown to us, had the 36 hr bug the week before and then Tuesday night the little man fell prey.

Then Thursday, Joe headed to a political fundraiser and it hit him driving home at 70 mph. Yes, there was remnants on the car. Then as he is about to pull up and we are talking on the phone, and I have to quickly drop the phone and run for the porcelain throne.

Still smiling :)


Joe started feeling better and headed out for a long overdue camping trip with his closest guy friend. He made it back in time for us to pull out and head to Austin for a surprise party for my uncle. We had a great time and Isaac had never had a night like that...lots of people saying, "Well, aren't you up late." Yes, we are THOSE parents. Then he fell asleep on 5th street, woke up still in the restaurant, and then woke up again when we arrived out at the lake house. Got to stay up with Aunt Stephanie and then finally crashed. What a night!

Here is my mom with Isaac at the party. Can you believe that she is 64!?!

Today we got to go on our first mom and son date! We really had so much fun; it was just what we needed. We went to Barnes & Noble in College Station and hung out in the kid section reading all kinds of books and playing with their train set. Then, we went to Chick-fil-a, ate some lunch, and then he got to play in the little kid section for the first time. He was then subjected to a grocery store run, but we had fun there too. I love you little buddy and had so much fun hanging out with you today...

He is just so darn cute Mel! I can't wait to get my hands on him. Bummer about being sick. That stuff is crazy the way it spreads so quickly. Oh and BTW, I was always one of "those parents" too. Love you!
