Long Weekend!

This weekend felt like it was about 7 days long!! It started by Brice, Rachel, and I traveling, by car, to Little Rock. We left around 2:30 on Friday and arrived in The Rock right at 8:30. Rachel did well until about Texarkana and she had a dirty diaper and needed to eat. We stopped and ate and took care of her, put her back in the car and she slept the rest of the way to Brice's parents' house. When we got there, she of course, had to check everything out and was interested in her new surroundings (including the dog, Adolf). She ate and then finally went down for the night around 11:30. I was terrified that she would not want to sleep since she slept all the way there, and she did wake up around 3:30 and didn't want to go back to sleep until around 5:00. Needless to say, I was a little tired on Saturday.

Saturday was the main reason for the traveling....it was Brice's Granny's 92nd birthday party!!! She is one of my most favorite people ever....so sweet!!! We had homemade pizzas and a lot of Brice's family joined. It was a good time! Rachel was passed around and loved every minute! We took a ton of pictures! Here are just a few....

We also took Rachel to Immanuel Baptist Church in Little Rock for the first time. This was the church that Brice and I were members at before we moved to Texas and where Brice's parents still attend. Everyone was very happy to see Rachel and she was excited to see all of the new faces as well. After church and lunch, it was time to head back home. After two nights without good sleep, I was exhausted, Brice was working until wee hours of the morning, and Rachel had a big weekend. Although we enjoyed our visit very much, we were ready to be home. We arrived back in the Big D around 8:30 tonight and Rachel is still awake (at midnight) after sleeping nearly the entire way home. She is eating so hopefully she will go to sleep soon so that I can rest. Poor Brice is still in the other room working on his computer. I feel so bad for him at this time of the year, but we only have a few more weeks to go....

Until next time....
