(I should have known better than to think I was going have time to continue the story the next day. Sorry to keep ya in suspense all week. hah)
Ok, onto #3:
Short recap- We went to the Zoo all morning, came home and Bryson was out cold and Michael and I sat down for a few minutes to relax and he got a text from his mom asking where we were and if we were coming....
Michael read the text out loud and we looked at eachother wide-eyed as we both realized at the exact same second that we were supposed to be down in Dallas at his parent's house for Pop's 75th birthday party. HOW in the world did we forget such a big day??
His mom made the plans while were were at their house 2 weeks prior and still, it completely slipped our minds.
We jumped up, gathered a few essentials for B, scooped up our sleeping baby and zoomed off in the car. Of course, he woke up as soon as I clicked him in his car seat and he didn't go back to sleep. So, insteadof getting a 3hr nap, he got 30 minutes. eek.
The entire way down to the house Michael and I were just sick to our stomachs that we forgot. I was so mad at myself; I just felt soo awful. We never ever would have missed his birthday on purpose. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll ever be able to live that down, either. :(
speedy timely driving maneuvers, we walked into the house as everyone had sat down for lunch.
We celebrated Pop's birthday with cards, presents, homemade pound cake and of course a few stories from Pop. We love to hear his stories. :)
Bryson loved pushing the shopping cart all over the house and playing with "Uh Beau". He even had to sit criss-cross just like him :)
Beau set Otto in the cart for a second...about 3 seconds after I snapped the picture, Otto jumped/fell flat on the floor. Poor little puppy
The birthday boy and Mr. B
Mammaw and B
Grandma and Papa and B :)
Even though we were a little late, we had such a wonderful afternoon celebrating Pop!
Happy 75th Birthday, Pop!!!
