July 4th Weekend
This weekend was Emma's first July 4th and we stayed in Atlanta. Friday Tommy took the day off so we went out to lunch after I got a massage (yes, momma got a massage!) and then Tommy went to meet Evan and Andrew for some golf. Emma and I just hung out at home for the rest of the day/night. Saturday morning we headed to HIT for Tommy and Bonnie's matches. I had my friend, Kyle, order a bonnet through her mom from MudPie and isn't it just the cutest! We fortunately got the shaded viewing area so we lasted the whole morning watching tennis matches. I'm looking forward to getting back out on the court during the Fall womens season. I didn't think I would be ready the second half of mixed so I didn't sign up.
The rest of Saturday we spent at home. My parents popped in while their realtor was doing an open house at their house. Then my oldest friend, Carolyn, came by to meet Emma. She is living in Bentonville, Arkansas right now and moving to Chicago soon. Her parents just moved back to Atlanta from Dallas so she came to visit for the weekend. It was great to see her and get an update on what has been going on with her lately. Excited for her move to Chicago. It's time for her to get out of Arkansas! We enjoyed a night in for dinner with Kyle and Andrew Hartman. We grilled burgers and just hung out. It was a very relaxing night!
Sunday we had a leisure morning making biscuits and gravy. We spent the day getting things done around the house. I baked my peanut butter cookie/oreo brownies and chocolate chip cookie/oreo brownies and then vacuumed/mopped the house. Tommy installed the new vanity in my bathroom. NO MORE PEDESTAL SINK! We ended our Sunday with dinner at Los Bravos.
Monday (4th of July) Tommy went at 6 am with Andrew to play a quick round of golf. Emma and I had a quiet morning getting ourselves ready for the day. We popped in Tommy's buddy's house to see Scott and Evan for a little bit. Then we headed to the Tashiros for a cookout with friends. I didn't take any pictures of Emma with the other little ones at the party. They were all napping at different times. Major fail because they all looked so cute in their patriotic outfits! Here is Emma in her two outfits for the day!
We ended the fourth at my sisters house with family and friends for dinner and fireworks. You can see the keswick park fireworks from their front yard so we set up blankets and chairs out front. I put Emma to bed in colliers crib and we just transferred her home after. Maybe next year she will see some fireworks. She slept right through them no problem!
It was a great holiday weekend! I'm going to skip Emma's 8 week update and will just update this weekend for her Two Month update. How is it she is already two months?!
