On Friday evening I took Rob to the Fall Festival at the local Intermediate School. He had a blast; that boy sure loves fairs and festivals. As I clenched my jaws shut on the scrambler, fighting nausea, I realized two things. 1.) I may very well be too old for amusement rides. My equilibrium isn't what it used to be. 2.) My life is one big scrambler right now...spinning rapidly into various angles but never quite crashing. While it should be scary, I still find myself squealing with glee.
Saturday was a beautiful day, despite the lack of Alabama football (off weekend). We played, Bobby watched football, and I got ready for a very exciting girls' night out with my dear SIL, Laura. Miranda Lambert was in town for a concert and Laura scored 6th row seats! What does it look like to sit on the 6th row?
She rocked that stage and belted out all her great songs. She has a very strong, beautiful sound! The Pistol Annies made a quick cameo for a few songs, too.
I also love that she's a curvy girl, and she's comfortable in her own skin. You can tell she's healthy, but she loves red meat and margaritas. Um, hello! We would so be best friends...except when she goes hunting. During those times I'd just say "See ya later."
Sunday my dad, Uncle Doc and Aunt Barbara came by for a visit. This was the first time Aunt Barbara met sweet baby William. I think the two of them hit it off very easily, what do you think?
Finally, we ended the weekend with a quick few rounds of family game night. We used to do this a lot more than we do now. Tonight Rob chose the classic "Guess Who". I love this game!
