It was a beautiful weekend and Brian and I filled it with many fun things to do.
Friday night we drove to Grand Haven for a beach picnic with old college friends. Mitch and Amber were visiting from Texas for the week. It sure was great to unite again - I cherish the few times we can all get together.
Saturday started with some delicious blueberry pancakes. They were Brian's treat to me, Kim, and Meredith. I wish he would make them for me every day! We finally picked up our new car, the Infiniti G20. Unfortunately, we had to spend more money on all new tires before it was deemed road-worthy. But now, it's home with us and Brian has busied himself caressing the leather seats. To celebrate, I took my first "belly pic." I'm not sure how I feel about posting baby bump photos, but a lot of people have told me I should - so here it goes.
(Uh, I know why I don't like this - I look like a cheese-head.)
Saturday night we finished Brian's birthday celebration. One of the gift's I gave him was a sailing trip on Lake MI with friends. We took a 3 hour voyage with Montelle, Kyle, Tim and our captains. Luckily, the rain held off and we were blessed with cool weather and a glorious sunset. It was the first time I've ever been sailing and I found it so peaceful. I forget how much we can get used to the sound of engines running in the background. With just the wind and the waves, it is really easy to let go of your stress.
