Good weekend with Matt's family!

This weekend Matt's mom and his sister Casey came to visit us and see Will for the first time! They got here Friday morning and Casey spent the day making casseroles for us and freezing them. This was awesome! We tried the first one tonight (a mexican casserole) and it was soo good!! Saturday we showed them around Evanston, and then we took a picnic to the park with Will and the dogs. (By the way, he is wearing the first outfit that Matt and I bought for him, right after we found out we were having a boy!)

Saturday night Casey and Cathy watched Will so Matt and I could go on a date! We went to an indian restaurant (Mount Everest....sooo good!!) and then we went to see 500 Days of Summer, which was cute. On Sunday Matt and his mom went to church and Casey cleaned our apartment and did laundry for us (a HUGE help!). Sunday night we all went to Campagnola, a very good restaurant here in Evanston. We took Will and he did great - he just slept in his car seat the whole time! We had a great time with Matt's mom and sister and are so thankful for the MANY ways they served us while they were here!

And here are a few pictures of Matt reading to Will. In the first picture he is reading "Are You My Mother?" This was one of my favorite books when I was little and we have a video of my mom and I reading this book.

Are You my Mother was and is my favorite book!!
Don't be discouraged about his spirituality with him yawning at the God Love's you book. He'll come around, sometimes it just takes time to sink in.
