Labor Day Weekend

We had a great (and busy!) Labor Day Weekend!

On Friday Luke and I had a playdate with our friend Laura and her kiddos Natalie and Dylan. Luke got to eat outside, picnic style, and swing - which made him pretty happy guy.

On Saturday I went to my mom's group monthly freezer cooking day. I was there only 1 1/2 hours and came home with 8 great meals to freeze!

Then we went over to Ryan and Kathy's to watch the Purdue/Notre Dame game. Luke wore a new Purdue shirt but it didn't help. :( Andrew was nice enough to also let us borrow the Fisher Price Superstar toy - and it entertained Luke for a long time today. Thanks guys!

Unfortunately when we got there Luke started to get really snotty/drooly. Kathy mentioned that the drooling might be because of teething (it was just pouring down his face!) and sure enough - he's working on this top left front tooth. We were hoping that that was the only thing going on - but it became clear as the evening went on that he was getting a cold too.

Because of that we had to cut our evening short and didn't get to go to the ice cream social that our friend Annie was having. (That made me VERY sad!)

When Luke woke up on Sunday it was clear that not only was his mouth bothering him, but he had a full blown cold. No coughing, but more snot than I ever thought possible. He would sneeze and the snot would shoot out, making him look like a walrus with tusks. (Sorry, no pictures! I'm sure you're heart broken.)

With some ibprofen though, he was good to go. His Mamaw, Papaw, Uncle Matt, and Aunt Alli came to visit and we all went to the zoo. Each time we go he "sees" more and more animals. This time he added the baboons!

Then we came back and stopped by the park to get our daily swinging in. After that it was time to just relax and hang out in the front yard while the guys washed their cars. What a great day!

Matt and Alli brought their new puppy Zoe to visit as well. Luke has decided that we need one now too (although Pickles and Cali do not agree.)

Today we were so exhausted that we just did a lot of laying around and napping!

Whew!! :)
