Weekend Wrap-Up

Wow – we were really busy this weekend!  I was so ready to be done with this week at work that the weekend had been looming for me for what seemed like forever and it was finally HERE.

There is a very small historical cemetery near our house that over the last few months had become quite overgrown.  It really made me sad driving by it 1-2 times a day and thinking about how if those were my ancestors I certainly wouldn’t be happy with the neglect the cemetery was going through.  Finally after contacting the owners of the cemetery and finding out the people in charge had just kind of forgotten about it and would be unable to do anything about it for a while, I decided to do something about it myself!  I organized a bunch of people from Murphy, and we all went out there Saturday morning for the big CLEAN-UP!

I was so excited at the number of people who showed up to help spruce up!  I think at one point I counted 17!!!  I absolutely love living in a small town.  New friends were made, and lots of fun was had, and I LOVED everyone’s kids that came to help as well!  What a really awesome group of youngsters and parents!  ❤

Here’s our album of pictures from McMillen Cemetery Clean-Up Day!

Then after we were done with that, my parents came over and we went over for our first 3D ultrasound of Miss Tatum!  I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but we got some amazing pictures, and a DVD of the entire session!  It really is amazing the clarity of the photographs and video you can get with the 3D.  I think my parents were absolutely fascinated! (I certainly was!)

I really love them all, but the one of her yawning gets me every time.  ❤  Getting so much closer to meeting her in person, it’s really flying by at this point!

Sunday we spent kind of a leisurely day (with the exception of our air conditioning unit going on the fritz, but we combated that by just staying out of the house as much as possible)…  Hit up the local flea market and came home with a second “Tatum” street sign, a new pot for my Aloe plants, and Wade got a new rain gauge.  😉

Once we got home we headed to the pool.  MAN all the rain on Thursday made that water FRIGID.  Wade was making fun of me because once I got my feet in it took me almost an hour to get the rest of me in the pool.  He kept telling me I was freezing our baby, but honestly, it felt a lot better than my hot stuffy house with no AC!

We ended up going to dinner with Dad at Cracker Barrel – it’s his birthday tomorrow and he’s bacheloring it this weekend while my mom is at the beach so we’re meeting up with him as much as we can!

Father, Daughter, and Granddaughter all hitting the rocking chairs 😉  That bump is getting kind of ridiculous for 6 months!  ❤

After that we came home and I tried to do some things to keep my mind off the heat in the house so I ended up finishing Tatum’s nursery letters!  Just need to hang them now!  I’m really happy with how they came out – I think they’re really cute.  =)

And now I’m sweaty, exhausted, and ready to go to bed!

Coming up on July 29….. Maternity pictures on the BEACH!!!!  ❤
