It was a whirlwind road trip for them, so I was happy to have them stay with us on Friday and Saturday night. I feel pretty spoiled to have had so much Emmett and Kayleigh cuddle time. Emmett was born on Father's Day and Kayleigh was three in March. Very brave of JC and Sarah to make the trip.
Thanks to everyone that came over on Saturday to meet Emmett and hang with the old 'Nog crew. It's like no time at all has past when we get together and talk about bar flies that came to the pub like it was their job, those that quit when Esther took the radio away, and those that have grown to be crazy successful Entrepreneurs.
Although most of my special peeps are born and raised in this area, I wasn't. I have the Tir Nan 'Og to thank for all my amazing friends. It's funny the places that become so important, even though you don't realize it at the time. Memories of Summer '03 will always live on...especially with Esther's amazing memory.
This weekend may be the highlight of my whole summer. Friends and babies! Just can't be beat.
Meet Emmett...the newest edition to JC and Sarah's, already beautiful family. After talking to Sarah about how life is with Emmett and how the delivery was, she gave a Shout Out to the Pilgrims for delivering babies without drugs or any help at all. I couldn't help but laugh. Just didn't expect that to come from her!
And now meet Kayleigh...the Princess on the Carriage...or...the Driver of the Kubota...
Then we have Kayleigh, playing the dirt we sifted from the driveway this summer...
Then we have Kayleigh who decided cleaning off in the pool just wasn't worth it. She was hungry!
Enter...Ben...who wasn't at the house more than 2 minutes before he wanted his Dad to take him to the Loader and show him the Back Hoe. A Man's Man.
He agreed with Kayleigh...getting cleaned off just wasn't important. It would have been easier to clean him off, if he had just stayed naked.
Finally, today we took a walk and 4-Wheeler ride to the field to pick and eat Black Caps and play on the new hay bales.
It was a great weekend!
