The Last Hurrah

Our Anniversary weekend will sound pretty boring to most, but we had a great time. We spent the night in Lafayette and had a wonderful dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. The next morning Ben dragged me to the Academy to get some new shoes, which was just a cover up cause we all know he wanted to look at the hunting and fishing stuff!

From there we headed to Alexandria, Louisiana. Population 46,362. Our friends Shaun and Wendi are two of them. They had their first baby yesterday (can't wait to meet you baby Brody!), so we spent their last single days with them. They just moved back to Louisiana from Pennsylvania and this was the first time we got to see their new house. Shaun had to work Saturday, so we took Wendi out to lunch and then we went to see the movie What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas with Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz. Very cute and funny.
A quick stop by TCBY cause mommy and baby needed a chocolate fix, and we were on our way back to their house. There, we did nothing. And it was so nice. Wendi and I talked about the delivery (she had a scheduled c-section cause the bebe was breech), watched some tv and waited for Shaun to come home.
Then we continued to do nothing for a few more hours. Blissful. Finally we dragged ourselves here for dinner. It was delicious, gotta love some good seafood!
And then we stayed up until almost 2:00! I think Shaun and Wendi were feeling really anxious and nervous. We had a great time.

Sunday morning the guys got us donuts for breakfast, we watched Selena on TNT, then headed to Home Depot. A quick lunch at a local Mexican restaurant, and we had to say goodbye. The Last Hurrah was over.

Baby Brody was born yesterday morning, and weighs in at 7 pounds, 4 ounches and is 20 inches long. I was waiting to do this post until I got some photos, but none yet. Ben is his godfather and is so excited to meet him. We aren't sure when we will get there to meet him, we want to make sure they have alone time and get settled in first.
Congrats Shaun and Wendi. We love you!

Wendi got us this delicious strawberry cake for our anniversary.

It was gooooddd!

My lovely husband.

Duke, The Wonder Dog. He was hoping we would drop a piece of cake!

Quite possibly the last belly pic. She was so cute!

Loving on Wendi and the baby!
