Okay, so I haven't posted the pictures that I promised - but I will try to get that done tomorrow. Since we got home from Arkansas, Abby has been sick, Mike's grandmother died, and I have worked a lot.
Anyway, we left our house at 2:00 a.m. on Friday morning, and drove to Grandma and Grandpa's house. When we knocked on the door, Grandpa stared in disbelief and Grandma just hugged us all. Abby was a big hit - she was passed around like a hot potato. Everyone enjoyed holding her and taking care of her all weekend. She was a very good baby - everyone kept telling me how lucky Mike and I are (I already knew that...).
We left her with Grandma on Saturday night while the rest of us went out for pizza. We went to Larry's (I think), and it was a really neat place. You paid for a buffet, but instead of going up to the buffet, the wait staff brought pizzas by your table and offered it to you. They had some really strange pizzas, but they were all very tasty. I blew my diet that night!
On Saturday, we went to Aunt Susie's and ate more. Mike's cousin, Chris, and his wife, Steph, came home from vacation that day, so we were able to visit with them. Steph is pregnant and due in early December, so we bought them a shower gift while we were there. It was really neat to surprise them with the stuff.
We stayed all day on Sunday, and left around 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, so that Abby would sleep all of the way home - which she did. It was a tense drive home, though, because we saw a lot of deer on the sides of the road, and Mike almost hit a coyote. Wild.
It was a really nice visit, and we had a lot of fun. I took a lot of pictures of Abby with her extended family. I am hoping that we'll get her back down there in November.
