Yesterday was the annual family picnic in Baldwin for Jason's Grandpa Rude's side of the family. They meet the same weekend each year and do a potluck lunch. There were lots and lots of different cold pasta salads and many desserts. It was soooo hot out but we had a good time.
I didn't really get a chance to take any pictures because we were so busy trying to keep Amelia from running into the parking lot. Before we left I did manage to get one of Jason and his Grandma Rude with Amelia:
It was nice that we are home now and were able to go this year. We hope to go each year now that we are back in the area.
Amelia was full of energy last night and got into the cupboard and found an open box of Girl Scout cookies and helped herself. She abandoned the box when we caught her and took off with a cookie in each hand:
What a little piggy!
Lastly, when it was time for bed Lucky was waiting for Amelia in her pack 'n' play. He loves that baby so much it just tickles us! How cute are they together:
He is so great with her and each day he just gets sweeter and sweeter with her. He is such a good cat :) I went in to check on her a little later once Lucky had left and this is what I found:
She sure knows how to relax after a long day!
One more random thing to share - we found another thing Amelia is afraid of...hot air balloons!
This one came up over my parent's house tonight (they live a block away from a launch site) and Amelia freaked out whenever they blew more hot air and started running for the door into the house. That girl is afraid of the weirdest things!
We have a busy week ahead of us as the Peterson family reunion is next weekend and there is still a lot to do around grandpa's house before then. Like I said last post, while I am enjoying all of our activities this month I also can't wait for the month to be over so we can slow down a little and relax!
