If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

My Weekend

I loved this weekend.  On Friday evening after work we came home and did some housework and then relaxed for awhile. We knew Saturday was going to be a long day.

Saturday we got up and took off around 8:00am. We were heading to the Chicago area to see Kerri and Colton. On the way, we passed some wind farms. There were windmills in all directions as far as we could see.  It was so awesome looking.

Windmills as far as you can see

More windmills. 
We got there around 1pm, our time and met them at Joe's Crab Shack.  Colton made up with his papaw immediately.  Then I got my hands on him.  I'm telling you, I just love this kid and I kinda like his mommy too.  lol  We had such a good time eating and laughing and talking.

Now GiGi has him and is thoroughly content.  I did not turn my head on purpose, but this is such a great picture of Colton.

We left there and went to their house.  They have such a cute little place and they are working on getting it all decorated.  I think they are really happy there.

I laid him in is new crib, but he was having none of that.

Playing with his stuffed fish on the floor.  He is such a happy baby.  Almost crawling, but not quite.

Next they took us to Lake Michigan to a State Beach.  It was really nice and they plan to spend a lot of time there this summer.  It is only about 15 minutes from their house.

Steel Mill across the lake.  I'm not sure if this is the one he works at or not.

It was very nice at the lake, but rather windy and cold.  We had to leave from there in order to make it back home at a reasonable hour.  We had church the next morning and didn't want to be too tired.

Beautiful sunset on the drive home.

It was a really long day, driving about 5 to 5 1/2 hours each way, but it was oh so worth it!  Now we're planning a trip where we can go stay a couple of days.

So how was your weekend?



  1. ahhh - he is just the cutest little guy. I honestly cant believe how big he's already getting.
    5.5 hours... i have a feeling that trip is going to be made a LOT ;)

  2. What a wonderful way to spend your Saturday...although that does sound like a lot of driving for one day. But I know it was worth every minute. Such a cute little guy. Loved the pictures of the windmills and the Chicago skyline in the distance...that was cool. It was all great stuff...I know when it's your kids you drink in every detail and love it. Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. How wonderful that they are close enough to drive there and back in a day! I'd do it as often as I could. Those times spent with grandkids are just the best there are. Sounds like you had such a good day! Colton is a real cutie!

  4. I'm so glad you were able to squeeze in this wonderful visit! I know you're counting down the days until the next one : )


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
