We had a great weekend. The weather was BEAUTIFUL!! We made the most of it and went to the beach yesterday afternoon with our friends Tami, David and Rykar (2 weeks younger than Caleb). Someone had mentioned a kiddie pool works well at the beach for babies. I agree!! It kept Caleb and Rykar out of the sand and entertained. Some pictures...

The boys other entertainment was FOOD. Tami must have fed them yogurt bites for an hour.And here is Rykar making sure he gets his share
This is Caleb's favorite toy right now...

And this is his favorite expression....
He bites his lower lip all the time! He'll be a very cute old man one day. Don't you think? Happy Monday!

So we've been on vacation. Wes and I left Caleb with his parents last Wednesday and headed to Boca Raton (near Ft. Lauderdale) early Thursday morning. I REALLY had mixed feelings about the trip. We went for an annual conference with Wes's work. I knew it would be fun and sounded fancy, but I wasn't so sure about leaving my little guy for FOUR NIGHTS. I'm glad that it was (kind of) a forced vacation otherwise I wouldn't have left him, and it turns out we all had a GREAT time. We were able to see what Caleb was up to by calling them on Skype while we were gone, and he was always as happy as can be. THANK YOU TO THE HARPERS FOR TAKING SUCH GOOD CARE OF HIM!!
Friday night was a costume party - Renaissance theme - and Lee Greenwood performed. I heard several people talking about how Lee Greenwood wasn't all that great. I disagree! A few reasons - ONE, I L-O-V-E country music (my roots run deep. It does not have to be George Strait for me to appreciate it), TWO- I thought he was entertaing (a side note: He is tiny! Maybe 5' and just a little person- I didn't realize this about him), LAST AND MOST OF ALL my husband is a big Lee Greenwood fan - who knew?!? He knew every word to his songs and danced and danced with me! I loved it! I'm sad to report that my camera battery was dead and I took NO PICTURES of the weekend. I have some from friends and hope they will send me more (please). Wes dressed up as a Musketeer. I hope I can post those soon!
Saturday night Billy Dean performed. I became a fan of his when we were at this conference last year, but I remain a big fan. He has such a great voice and puts on a great show!
Wes spent his days in a golf tournament and playing tennis while I hung out at the pool. It was very relazing and we really appreciated the trip! Some of the pictures I have...

We've been having a really good time around here lately. I REALLY love summer and we've been spending as much time as possible outside. (I know it's hot, but I'm just thankful for the sunshine and I've never been one to mind a little heat.) I don't really have any new news to share so I'll just share a picture I took the other day of my happy boy in his big boy clothes.

Happy Birthday Willie!!

32 years ago today Walker Andrews Williams was born. Who would have known he would become one of my best friends and one of the people I love most in this world?? Everybody always talks about how nice he is (which is true- he has manners like nobody else I know), but he is also about as silly as anybody else I know - he is a REALLY good match for Ashley, and I'm so thankful for him and what a good husband he is to her and good friend he is to me. He puts up with a LOT from me - I go see them a lot and am ALWAYS on their telephone.
