weekend, hair cuts, and vacation!

We had a great weekend! It was a little different than usual...  we didn't have John's undivided attention all weekend :(  He had some friends ( Coach and Tim) come down from St. Louis to visit for a day and a half.  John had a great time fellowshipping with them.  Coach was John's mentor and basketball coach in highschool.  He mentored John and two other guys, Tim and Vance during their high school years.  For those of you who don't know, John grew up in St Louis.  Vance lives in Birmingham also, so Coach and Tim came down to hang out, eat, and play golf with the Bham guys.  So, Saturday, I took the boys over to my moms and we all went to Star Lake in Hoover to walk.  Since we burned a few calories, we ended up at Johnny Rockets and I downed a plate of chili cheese fries.  We had a great time! (Besides that fact that Noah spit up all over his out fit and I had forgotten to pack an extra....ewwww!)  Joe loved seeing all the ducks and geese at the lake, and he certainly enjoyed his cheese burger and ice cream at Johnny Rockets.  We went back to Mom and Dad's to feed Noah before we needed to head home for Joe's nap.  While Mom and I fed Noah, Joe went outside and helped my dad pick up the yard. 
I sang at church Sunday, and it wasnt John's week to run the computer, so he stayed home with the boys while I went to church early and they met me for the service.  It's so great that John can get the boys up and going on his own, and on top of being able, I think he loves to do it.  I totally don't remember what we did for the rest of the day on Sunday.  How horrible is that? I think we probably just chilled out together.  Anyways, today Joe had his 4th hair cut and he did AWESOME!  I'm so thankful that my mom owns N Vogue because everyone there knows us well and they all had a great time entertaining Joe, which made the hair cut go smoothly.  He looks adorable.  I havent taken any pictures of him yet, but I will soon!
On to vacation! I am packing up the boys and meeting my mom's entire side of the family at the lake tomorrow! Thats a whole lotta people, folks!  John is going to head that way after work on Friday.  We will come home Saturday night because John and I both have things to do at church on Sunday.  We are so excited to go! It's going to be a blast.  It will be the first time I have seen my Colorado cousins this year, and may be the only time....not sure yet.  Joe is going to have so much fun...mostly at the pool, but i'm sure he will love the boat, too!  I love seeing my boys with the family.  We are so blessed to have family that love and care for them so much.  Everyone is such a huge help, and not because they are trying to help, but simply because they love them and want to be with them.  I'll post pictures of the lake when we get back!  Hope you all have a great weekend!
