Memorial Day with the Cotners

So many memories...where to start! We spent Memorial Day weekend with our friend Matt, Liz, and Matthew Cotner in Destin, FL. Matthew is 15 months, just fourth months older than Little Philip. Needless to say, cameras and camcorders were flashing constantly as we captured our little boys' reactions to sand and sea. And since it was vacation, they also enjoyed munching on watermelon and popsicles together. They even had their first taste of a Hot Now Krispy Kreme doughnut. We are headed to Moss Beach Week next week in Ft. Morgan and thankfully, we now know that Little Philip will love it!

Mamies Birthday

On the weekend when Renie was "home alone" lil Philip and I went to Brownsville for my parents 60th surprise party. Emily planned the entire event and it went well. Here are a couple of pictures from the weekend with the family.

How Lil Philip is like mommy

For Renie's Vandy friends I need no more explanation...

Home Alone (without the Phillipi)

It was a first for me this weekend. The two Philips went to Brownsville, TN for a surprise birthday party for Mamie and Big George Moss. I had a big event at Birmingham-Southern College which was the Sesquicentennial Celebration and Alumni Reunion Weekend. It was exhausting but such a great event to coordinate through our office of Student Affairs along with Alumni Affairs/Advancement. Here is a picture of the fireworks at dusk. It is now 10:45 p.m. and I've called Big Philip to check on him and "the boy" about a dozen times since they left midday on Friday. Two nights away from his Mommy! I hear he has been great and I wish I could say the same. But as a friend pointed out, this is good bonding time between father and son. I can't wait for them to get back in town on Sunday afternoon! I'm going to try to make the most of it by taking a long hot bubble bath and then tackling some chores while I don't have any mommy duties:
Bathe the dog
Walk the dog
Love on the dog
Tell the dog that we still care about him and know he still exists
Sew on some missing buttons from clothes
Sew some new bibs for Little Philip
Wash ALL the dirty clothes, even the ones I've avoided for weeks
Vacuum and clean Philip's car
