Happy Fourth of July
Okay, busy weekend of nothing in Tennessee. And no pictures to show for it!
Friday: flew to Knoxville after spending 3 hours in Dulles. We walked around Terminals A/B and named all of the state and attempted to name the country flags. It’s a great way to (A) get in steps (B) educate yourself and (C) pass the time!
Saturday: brunch at IHOP, visiting Matt’s granddad, then family BBQ at the house.
Sunday: church, lunch at Outback, saw the A-Team (pretty great, by the way), hung out with Matt’s best man, cookout/game party with church people where I re-learned Rook (for the third time) and taught them Euchre, hurried to fireworks, then hung out a bit more.
Monday: not much but playing with pictures and flying back to Boston.
One of the big projects of the weekend was to gather pictures of Matt for a wedding project. I haven’t actually seen many pictures of Matt as a little boy. A little background: Matt has a twin sister, Diana, and they were born 2 months early. He weighed 3.5 lbs when he was born and lost almost a pound in the hospital. He stayed in there for 88 days (because he kept forgetting to breathe). But he survived! For those of you who are anxious about premmies, Matt’s a great success case. Anyway, because of that, there aren’t many pictures (at least happy ones) as a newborn. But I did find some great ones of him ages 1-6. He was so freaking cute! Here’s one of my favorites:
Aww! I hope our babies have that cute little dimple!
I hope you all enjoyed your Fourth of July!
