Girl's Weekend

So pretty!

Ruthi and I left the "boys" behind and took off for the weekend. I had one cousin getting married on Saturday, and another cousin having a baby shower for their newly adopted baby girl on Sunday. So we made the almost 2 hour drive to the wedding. It was a very sweet wedding and I'm so glad we could go even though it was outside with 84% humidity - we were QUITE warm and sticky! But as the sun went down, it cooled off, and we had such a great time. I got to see cousins that I don't get to see very often.
My mom came too, and we stayed at my aunt's house for the night. On Sunday morning, she went to pick up biscuits for us for breakfast. We hung out for a bit before getting ready for the baby shower. Ruthi had a grand time going up and down my aunt's stairs as many times as she could. She's just figuring them out and getting quite brave going up and down with no help. Makes for a very nervous mommy since she still loses her balance on them!
My cousin Matt came over to visit for a while before we had to go, and it was so good to see him. Ruthi was giving out lots of hugs and kisses.

Then off to the baby shower - it was wonderful. Ruthi was loving the food and made herself right at home. She got to meet her new cousin, Hope. I guess she thought she was a doll though, since she was so tiny and I had to pull her away before she rolled poor baby Hope over like a rag doll. She wanted to play with her so bad and I guess she just didn't understand that this was a REAL baby!!

Then we made the journey home. Ruthi was tuckered out and was asleep before we had been on the road for 5 minutes. Which made my drive nice and unstressful! Nothing like a fussy little one while I'm driving! It was a great weekend getting to see family I don't get to see as often as I'd like!
