Two Weeks of Family Fun

I know I haven't blogged in a little while...but we have been busy with a capital B! In the last two weeks, in the middle of remodeling our living room, it has been a family affair! We have traveled to attend a family reunion and a wedding. Two weekends ago we went to Fredericksburg to see Grandma's side of the family, the Arhelgers. Cooper got to meet several cousins, aunts and uncles that he had never met! He also got to eat at the Auslander with Uncle Clint, shop a little around Fredericksburg, and swim at the hotel pool. (Most of the family camped...but there was NO WAY we were going to camp in the heat with a 9 month old!)

This past weekend we traveled to the lake for two reasons. One, to visit Nonnie and Papa Kirk, and two, to attend my cousin (Graham side) Leah's wedding in San Antonio. Cooper had fun playing with Nonnie and Papa and the different toys (than from home) that we have at the lake. On Saturday afternoon, after a frantic search for Dad's wedding ring (we found it), we drove into San Antonio for Leah's wedding. The wedding and bride were both gorgeous and Cooper was an angel during the ceremony...until he caught sight of Grandma sitting two rows behind us! Then he thought it was funny to giggle and make faces at Grandma and my other cousin's husband sitting behind us! Luckily the ceremony didn't take very long!

We had fun but we are looking forward to staying at home for a little while!
