On The Road Again

We've been spending our weekends on the road. We went to Hartselle the weekend before last. It was a quick trip. We got there after midnight on Friday and left right after church on Sunday. Wes went to a golf expo with my dad and I got to play with my sweet nieces, my mom and Katie. I didn't take any pictures while we were there, but it was a lovely time.
We went to Dothan this weekend for Wes's good friend's wedding. Justin Barfield married a sweet, beautful girl on Saturday, and we were happy to get to be there with them. It was a BEAUTIFUL wedding. Thank you Nana & Poppy for babysitting so we could celebrate!

The Herrings came over Sunday afternoon for lunch and we spent the afternoon outside.

The weather is supposed to be beautiful all week, and I'm so thankful it's SPRING!

What Is Easter?

Caleb is getting a new book for Easter that Ashley's boys already have. It's a cute little book that teaches what Easter is really about. It rhymes and has sweet pictures. I am excited about it so I just thought I'd share. I found it for $1.98 on Amazon about a week ago. Looks like the price is about $5 now, but I imagine it's a book we will read for years.

Pink Eyes and Ear Infection

So the diagnosis from the doc today was pink eye in both eyes and the beginning of an ear infection. Glad we went so we could get some medicine. He should be feeling 100% in a few days - Thank you, Lord! In the meantime, it hasn't slowed him down much...
When I last updated, I was a young gal in my 20s. Now I am officially 30 years old, and I had a great weekend celebrating. It was the most beautiful weather we've had all year - thank you God!

Sweet Wes planned a birthday dinner with friends at a little Mexican restaurant for Friday night. I didn't take any pictures, but I sure had a good time and felt so loved that everyone came to celebrate with me.

Our birthday was on Saturday, and the Williams came so we could spend it together. It was such a good day. Ashley recapped it all here. She said a whole lot of nice things about me in that post. If you know her, you know that she is the 'better twin'. Ashley is about as good as they come. To know her is to love her :). I am the oldest (by four minutes), but I have always looked up to her and wanted to be like her. As far as I am concerned she is the coolest! I didn't take but a couple of pictures, but here is our happy little family before we went out to eat.

In other news...We are going to see Caleb's doctor this afternoon. His eyes are so red and swollen, and he has woken up the last two mornings with them matted together. I am afraid he has inherited the Brown's bad allergies (when I was in high school taking a final exam in the dusty old gym, my eyes swelled together so badly that I couldn't see the paper by the end of the test), but maybe it's pink eye. Kind of pitiful, huh?

I'm sure it's nothing a little Allegra or eye drops can't fix. I'll keep you posted.
