We had the best weekend! My grandparents (my mom's parents) celebrated their 50th anniversary in June! We'd been planning a family celebration but weren't able to get everyone together until this past weekend. It was the best excuse to spend a couple days in northern Utah!
The 50th wedding anniversary celebration was lovely! My mom and her siblings really made it a special night for my grandparents. We had gorgeous weather, amazing food, and the funnest time hanging out with our family! I miss living close to my extended family :)
The rest of the weekend was spent running errands and visiting our friends. This was the first time that Eric and I have been up there together, and had enough time to see people. It was JUST what I needed... I only wish we had a week or two to spend visiting everyone we miss :) I am grateful for our amazing friends, even though they live a few hours away.
We also registered at a couple baby stores! I know it's pretty early (I'm just over 17 weeks) but the only store we have in our town is Wal Mart. And since we were up there together for once, I thought it'd be funner to register with Eric than by myself. He likes to be involved with anything that has to do with our baby :) I almost died when I saw how much they charge for certain baby items. Good grief! But I was so grateful for the advice I got from all of you momma's... it saved us from registering (and spending money when we're ready to buy) on really pointless items. So thank you!! The best part of registering was the anticipation I felt... I can't wait to bring our brand new baby home from the hospital, snuggle up in all those cozy blankets, and just love on our baby!!
