Wonderful weekend

Ahhhh, what a great weekend. On Saturday, hubs, booger and I headed out to Millsaps. They had an open-air archaeology fair going on in the bowl with artifact displays, a big inflatable slide, and other booths. The weather was divine, and there were tons of kids and families there. Clay puttered around, looking at all the people and checking out my old stomping grounds.

THEN we met our photographer (we'd arranged to meet her out there ahead of time) and had shots taken for our Christmas card this year. There are tons of nooks and crannies on campus where you can get great shots, and she took tons of pics. I'm sure we got at least some usable ones, though I don't know if I can possibly top last year's awesome card.

After that, we headed home for a rest before going to my parents' house for dinner. My nephew, Caleb, was there, too, and we all had dinner together. Then, I put booger in the tub. (That way, he could just fall asleep in the car on the way home. No bigee.) Well, Caleb wanted to join Clay in the bath. What ensued was perhaps one of the cutest things I've ever seen. Caleb brought some toys and hopped in the tub, and the two little fellows started playing. Clay thought EVERYTHING Caleb did was hilarious. He laughed like crazy through the whole bath. Then Caleb would laugh. Then I would laugh. It sounded like some sort of giggle convention in there. I nearly grabbed Caleb up myself, soap and water be damned, when he said, in his thick Southern accent, "It's so much more fun to take a bath when you've got a buddy in the tub with ya! I have to take a bath all alone every night!" They were PRECIOUS. I am kicking myself that I didn't have my camera with me and praying that I can recreate that moment again and capture it on film.

On Sunday, mom kept booger for a bit while hubs and I actually went out and had a nice lunch - TOGETHER! Boy, that rarely happens these days! We ate at Bravo!, visited the Renaissance Colony mall, and just enjoyed one another's company. It was lovely!
