I’ve been such a bad blogger lately. Shame shame!
There’s a lot to catch up on, but I’m going to try and separate them into different posts so that it’s not too overwhelming.
So I’ll start with our trip to Orange County a few weeks ago. Isabella was being baptized and we were asked to be the godparents. We made a weekend of it and went down on Friday and were able to stop and visit with Liza and the kids for a couple of hours. I must say, I was totally jealous of their back yard! They have a zip line and Andrew showed how totally fearless he is by demonstrating it over and over again.
Even Bailey was excited by going on it (with Mommy’s help of course).
We left their house with the intention of going straight down to Huntington Pier and grubbing on some Smokin’ Mo’s ribs. They have a very unique BBQ sauce that they bottle and sell, but since we ran out of our stock several months ago, we went there with the intention of buying tons of it. Unfortunately, they only had four bottles, but we snatched all of those up. Another unfortunate incident is that we have already used a whole bottle of it since we got back! Anyway, the meal was yummy and I got to catch to catch up with the owner (who is my friend Ben's dad) and hear how Ben is doing.
On Saturday we spent some time with my mom in the morning and then met some friends and family in the evening. We went to dinner with Angel, Rebekah, and Billy and afterward Angel went with us to Pineapple Hill to meet up with Steve, and Cherie and Mike. It was good to see them again and FINALLY get to meet Mike. They had an 80's night theme so there were a lot of people dressed in 80's garb (including our awesome server!)
On Sunday was Isabella’s baptism. She looked adorable and had the whole church laughing with her when she got walked down the aisle. Here are a few highlights from the day:
Three of my sisters...
And all of us together...
And the little cutie!
Of course, it was also Superbowl Sunday, so we had to partake in the festivities at Joe and Lisa’s.
After all these years of camping together, Joe and Lisa are like our family, so it was great to see them again and just hang out. Joe had just broken his ankle the day before, so he was a little crippled!
We headed home on Monday. Back to the daily grind of work, school, and whatever else is going on. It was a fun weekend, but I was glad to be home and see my Sadie too.
