weekend in pictures

last weekend we had a bonus visit from my sister shelley. it was a "bonus" visit because she came primarily to go to her high school reunion, but we fit in lots of good visiting time too.

however, i am sad to report i didn't take a single picture the whole weekend. i am getting so awful! so now i present to you a summary of the weekend's events told through pictures. google images, & other pictures i already have from other times.

starting at the top left:

picked shelley up at airport & then had lunch at cheesecake factory. mmmm, who knew they now have a reese's peanut butter cup chocolate cake cheesecake? i'll tell you who knows... my belly. yum.

the hour drive back home took 2 and a half hours. awesome traffic. that night shelley went to her reunion stuff & we didn't wait up for her. however, we did offer to pick her up anywhere/anytime no-questions-asked if need be. we didn't have to though.

saturday was a nice lazy day. after sufficiently being lazy all morning, shelley & i ventured to the mall for some shopping.

since shelley's reunion stuff was an hour from our house, she really didn't feel like going after we had shown her how much fun hanging out with us in our living room all day could be. how could a night on the town be better than that? so, to make it a fun family affair, we decided we should all go & sam, parker, & i would waste some time around my home town while shelley did the reunion stuff.

after hitting lots of stop & go traffic (again), & parker throwing a fit in the backseat, we were starting to re-think whether our coming along was such a good idea. however, the baby fell asleep, we got shelley to her reunion stuff on time (well, fashionably late), & we enjoyed some tasty pizza. my belly was happy, & that means it was a good idea.

on sunday, sam fixed us an amazing lunch after church. is it so awful that my husband is a better cook than me? seriously, his bbq'ed baby back ribs fell off the bone & melted in your mouth. his roasty potatoes were perfect & the corn on the cob was the kind where the juices drip off your chin. why didn't i help, you ask? because he had it all done in the time it took me to feed parker. love that man.

after lunch, shelley & i watched a movie & i got the great idea to bake some banana bread. turns out it's not such a great idea to bake something for an hour when it's 95 degrees out. after the bread was done, it was 95 degrees outside & 90 degrees inside our house. but the banana bread was perfect.

after the movie, we took shelley to the airport & once again hit horrible traffic. but don't worry, she got there on time, we said our tearful goodbyes, & she flew home.

all in all, a great weekend.

and now, your reward for reading a summary of my weekend with no real story or point... or for at least scrolling down past all the paragraphs looking for something of interest... your moment of zen:
