I am sure that extra family (and friend) time is never a waste and always worth it. Even if it is an 8 hour drive.
Omaha is always so wonderful because it's full. It's full of dinner, friends, family, delicious cocktails and this time -- babies.
Two of my best girls are mamas and almost mamas. Lyndsey had the sweetest little bun, Caroline, in March and this was my weekend to meet the little love. Lyndsey is a natural. She is such a great and relaxed mom, even when Caroline pukes on her favorite aunt --> me. She's a happy, beautiful baby and lunch with her and my girls was just what my heart needed.
The crazy aunts.
After the girls lunch, Adam and I ventured to visit Grandpa. Little did we know that this would be one of our last visits with him, but it was such a good visit. We were so lucky to have the extra time with him.
Dinner with family to follow and lots of cocktails with my Adam and mother and father in law. The next day it was baby shower time! My girl B is the cutest little pregnant mama. The afternoon was spent with coconut chicken salads, too many mimosas with my girlfriends and lots of baby clothes and necessities. I cannot wait to watch B become a mama.
So lucky for this beautiful best girl of mine.
Look at how gorgeous B is. She is going to be the best mama!
After the shower, I ventured down to the lake for a surprise engagement for my brother-in-law and now almost future sister-in-law. My brother-in-law arranged all the family and her family to be at the lake so when he proposed on the boat, we'd all be on the dock. Needless to say, she did not see it coming. Bring on the next wedding!
The beautiful newly engaged couple!
My best friend is a 3 and 1/2 year old. She's the coolest.
Family weekends are the best. They are good for the soul and the heart. I love that I have such amazing friends and family to love and to miss.
Until next time.
