Fishy Fun and Other Weekend Updates!

This weekend Noah was able to be home with us Friday and Saturday. We were very excited to have him here! Friday my sister Amy came over to give me a haircut and we hung out for a while. Then we had Aunt Ann and The Michaels (Joe, Sherri, Christopher, Jessica and her boyfriend James) over for dinner and a game night. We had steak, potatoes, deviled eggs, pasta salad, garden salad and brownies for dessert. Everything was very yummy. Then played the game Apples to Apples. I had never played before but I heard it was fun and we had a great time. It was nice to catch up with them because we really don't see them very often and they hadn't seen Tanner since Memorial Day weekend!

Saturday we went to the aquarium after nap with Granddaddy and Uncle Matt. We bought a membership there so we'll be going back plenty! Izabel loved it last year and she loved it again. She looked at all the fish, sharks, turtles and tried to touch a ray and a horseshoe crab, but I think her favorite part was running up and down the stairs of the seating area in front of the shark tank! They didn't have many exhibits open because they haven't finished the construction but it should be done by the end of the summer and we'll be heading back to see all the new things! After the aquarium my Dad and Matt came home with us and my Mom and Grandma came over for pizza and some more games. This time we played Monopoly Deal which is a card game version of regular Monopoly. Noah got it for Father's day and we play a little almost every night! It's a lot of funny and we were excited to teach it to someone else!

Sunday Noah did have to go to work but I had tons to do to get ready for my upcoming work trip. I did all the laundry (including sheets and towels), did some cleaning and went to Kohls for a few work outfits.
Now I am getting ready to head out to Richmond for a conference for work. I'll be gone until Thursday night and I will miss Izzy and Tanner terribly but I think it will be nice to be around adults and sleep like a normal person! Hope everyone has a great week and I'll be back with updates next weekend!!!
