Rose Meets Uncle Pete and Jen

After a long 3 month wait, Rose finally got to meet her Uncle Pete!! Peter (my brother) moved to Chicago to start a new job just 2 weeks before Rose was born. He is an accountant for Deloitte and started his job during a very busy time of year for accountants! He was finally able to take a day off work and he came home to visit with his sweet girlfriend Jen. First thing Friday morning, Pete and Jen came over to meet Rose for the first time. I think they are both smitten :) Pete and Jen played with Rose all morning and then we went to the Country Club with the whole fam (minus Clark...he had to work) for a delicious lunch on the patio. The weather was awesome and everyone had a great time. Rose slept the entire time, William LOVED eating from the salad bar, and Jay had fun being spoiled by Grammy and Pops.Did I mention that William has become a great little eater? I've never met a 5 year old who loves salad, lima beans, and pretty much any other food you could think of. He is so healthy!
Saturday, the family came over to our house for a little crawfish boil. The weather was perfect and we had so much fun hanging out on the deck. I forgot to take! Jay had fun chasing Lucy around and William loved riding around midtown on Clark's golfcart. Rose stayed in Grammy's arms the entire time. Later that night, Rose went to visit her Jannie and Junior so that all of us could go to dinner at La Pizzeria. We all had so much fun and I laughed harder than I have laughed in a long time! We had a blast. Unfortunately, I didn't take a single picture!! Ugh!

Today, we went to the mall to check out the huge bungee-jump trampoline thingie that we thought William would love. He was a tiny bit hesitant at first, but after the first jump, he was in heaven! William LOVES jumping and this contraption was right up his alley! You should have heard his squeals of delight and huge smiles. It was so sweet to watch. I think it was definitely the highlight of William's spring break! After the mall, we headed to Mom and Dad's house for dinner. There is nothing better than spending the whole weekend with family. I feel so blessed to have a family who loves each other as much as we do. We are all sad to see Pete and Jen leave but we are looking forward to their visit in July. We love and miss you Uncle Pete and can't wait to see you and Jen in a few months!!

They are all three so cute! What a fun family weekend. And, the picture at the top of Rose sleeping looks like a magazine baby... she is beautiful!

I'm sorry, but I can't get over how Rose looks just like my baby pictures! Can I just steal her and call her mine? It's only been a couple of days, but I miss her already. Please call me to babysit soon! :)
