What a wonderful trip! Headed down Tuesday evening. Got half way and stayed at a nice hotel. Headed off at a leisure time the next morning so Phillip could make it for golf with Pappy and Uncle Shane at noon. Weston and I headed straight for the pool. We ate at Kenny D's on Old 98, Poppy's at Baytowne Wharf, Louisiana Laignappe and the Sunquest dinner cruise for Erika's wedding reception. Erika's lingerie shower was a blast with a goddess theme and a dance party on the beach. The beach wedding was flawless with a gorgeous bride and handsome groom and the boat cruise reception was the cherry on top. 2 houses, 2 grandparents, 8 parents, 2 soon to be married and 11 grandbabies is a riot but I wouldn't have missed it for anything in the world. The tail end was a little sketchy with Shane and Amanda's car breaking down, having Caleb and Caden join Weston in the back of our Malibu for the last 250 miles, and then leaving my phone on the car as we pull out of their neighborhood and it breaks into a thousand pieces. Oh well. Those being the only setbacks, I say it was a trip for the books!

I can't believe its been a year since this precious little gift was brought into the world. With all the blessings and memories we have had thus far, I can't imagine whats to come. I am so honored God has given me the opportunity to be a mother and trust me to be a guiding light to one of his children. I pray that each day me and Phillip can glorify Him through the man we will help Weston become. We only have a few years of influence so lets hope we make the best of it and have a sense of humor for all the draw backs we may endure. I love you Lord for giving me a glimpse of how deep your love is for us by giving me a son of my own. I'm in awe of how deep my love has grown in a matter of a year and amazed to think of how deep it will grow in a lifetime. You are MIGHTY! Oh how I love you so..my sweet Weston Joe! Happy birthday, baby.
We had a wonderful birthday party with family and friends. Thank you all for celebrating with us!
