Weston's 6 Month Photos

At his check up he weighed 18 lbs 14 oz and measured 28 inches long. He's healthy all around but kind of lagging on his upper body strength and neck control. I know he'll get there though. Slow and on his own time, just like his daddy. Some of these photos crack me up. He was such a trooper with so many wardrobe changes, but by the time we got to his Halloween costume, he'd had it.

Destin in October-Our First Family Vacation

Well, another Destin in October has come and gone. The weather and the company was absolutely perfect. Smaller group than usual but a wonderful group none the less...just Phillip, Weston, Maymie, Pappy and me. We stopped at Durbin Farms and got our favorite, a ham and cheese melt and a chocolate milkshake for the road. Weston was such a good boy on the way down. We made it in 7 hours and 10 minutes. Not too shabby. First night we went to Lucky Snapper for a beautiful sunset dinner and yummy cheese biscuits. The next morning we walked to the Bad 'Apple' Cafe for coffee, and went to the beach for fun, sun and water. After lunch back at the house, the boys went golfing and the girls went shopping. We met for dinner on the pier in Baytowne Wharf at Poppy's for some great seafood. Friday we woke up and went to the "Donut Hole" for breakfast. Both couples shared the "Diet Plate" but if you are on that kind of a diet, you're only going to end with a heart attack!!! We then took Weston to the pool for some more fun, sun and water. At first the water was a little cool for Weston, but he got used to it and did not want to leave. After lunch back at the house, Lacy and Phillip played a few games of "Botchee Ball." Then, the boys went golfing and girls went shopping again. The last night we ate at Cantina Laredo's in the Grand Blvd. Amazing mexican food and a chocolate cake dessert that knocks your socks off. We were all exhausted by the end of it. We are so glad Maymie and Pappy allowed us to come along and spend the rest of the week with them. We loved spending time with them and love them so much. What a great first vacation!
