Busy weekend!

My mom visited this weekend, and we were super busy. We spent all day Saturday running around doing errands, and even ended up the evening having a mini-party - where some of Aaron's family came over for dinner. Mom brought her puppy, which has turned from a total monster to just a bit of a monster. But look at this face:

HEY! LADY! Pay attention to MEEEE!

And here she is harassing my boxer (these are actually pictures from the cabin on the 4th of July I forgot to share)

Anyway - it ended up being a good weekend. Visits with my mother can go either way - you know how mother's are! They just know all the buttons to push. Remember her obsession with me gaining too much weight? Now she is worried I'm not getting 'big' enough (whatever that means). But she told me a cute story about when I was born. She didn't know if she was having a girl or a boy, and when I turned out to be a girl, she couldn't sleep all night she was so excited! I think that is sweet.

I even took her with me to water aerobics this morning. She had a blast.

She left a few hours ago, and I'm sitting and knitting and catching up on the Olympics. I'm going to miss having them to watch everyday! The dogs are completely exhausted from puppy overload, and Aaron is doing laundry in the new super duper machines so he has clean clothes for his first day at the new job tomorrow!

Is it me or are boxers the most energetic puppies of all? My in-laws have one who is just now a year old, and she is absolutely crazy and wants constant attention.

Sounds like the weekend was fabulous!

Your mom's pup looks exactly like my cooper. He is a fawn boxer as well with a dark red coat. Very cute!

The puppy is so cute ...
Good luck with 3rd trimester -you are on the home straight now.
Keeping an open mind about breastfeeding is important and not being made to feel guilty if it doesn't work out.

I was so glad to see you on Sunday ... and meeting your mom was a bonus! I'm glad she can come spend time after your babe is born.
