Weekend at Meme and Papa's House!

We started off the weekend with a trip to one of my most favorite places in the world - Mellow Mushroom.  Its so hard to go out to dinner with a baby on a Friday night but we did it and it was well worth the effort! 

The next morning, I got up and spent some morning time with Wyatt before leaving to go to a friend's wedding shower.  I had such a great time relaxing and enjoying my friends that I didn't even stop to take a picture!  Ooops. 

After the shower, I went home, got our stuff together and took Wyatt out to Meme and Papa's house for the rest of the weekend.  We had planned to do his 9 month pictures on Sunday morning - and his best time is typically mornings so its just easier to be there rather than get up and rush out the door to catch him in his best moods.  Since we were going to be there, Kimmie and Ellie decided that they would come out for the night as well so we could all visit.  We don't live all that far apart, but we really don't see Kimmie and Ellie (or Dave) all that often so this was exciting for all of us.  

It was a pretty day, so once we got to Meme and Papa's house we decided to take Wyatt out for a ride on his tricycle.  He really does love this thing - you wouldn't know that from his expression in this picture though! 

Once Ellie and Kimmie got there, the kids played for a little while and then we went to dinner.  We didn't sit the kids together initially, we only did this at the end so we could get a picture.  Once we slid their high chairs together we quickly realized that they should have sat together the whole meal because they totally entertain one another.  Wyatt is interested in EVERYTHING Ellie does and Ellie likes to copy Wyatt. 
 We got home from dinner and it was bath time.  Ellie didn't want to get in the bath (she was tired and cranky) but once we told her we would put Wyatt in with her she perked up. 

Ellie wanted Wyatt to sleep in her big girl bed but we explained to her that he can't because he doesn't know how yet.  We did let him lay there for a few pictures though ...
W is normally a great sleeper but Saturday night was an exception.  He was soooo restless all night.  I think it was the fact that he was not at his house combined with the fact that he was worried he would miss something that Ellie was doing.  Ellie is always an early riser and Wyatt was on Sunday morning since Ellie was up.  Here they are playing in Meme's kitchen before breakfast.

 We did Wyatt's 9 month pictures (I'll share later ... it isn't his 9-month birthday yet) on Sunday morning and then had a fun afternoon playing and watching the two kids entertain each other. 

This jeep is OLD!!  My dad used to push me around on it when I was a little girl.  Wyatt is too cool to smile, but you can tell he thinks he's a big boy sitting there!

We tried and tried to get both of them to look at the camera at the same time but it was tough!
