Great weekend!

My family came in town this weekend and it was so good to see them! My dad and my sister had not seen Will since he was in NICU and hooked up to all kinds of wires. My dad had never even gotten a chance to hold him, so he was really excited to get the chance when he got here Friday morning!

My cousin Meredith was in town on business Friday and took the train to our house to visit Will and my family during one of her breaks. Friday was also her birthday, and it was so good to see her! We went to one of my favorite places for lunch, Bat 17, and then she had to take the train back down to the city for a meeting that afternoon.

My sister got in town mid-afternoon and she too was pretty excited to see Will! Mary Beth brought me two pieces of cake from Piece of Cake in Atlanta (the BEST cake ever!) - one piece of caramel cake and one piece of peanut butter cake! (Unbeknownst to MB, I'd been on Piece of Cake's website the week before to see if they deliver to IL - they do...for a nice little shipping fee of $84!). And my mom brought chocolate fudge peanut butter cookies from the best bakery on St. Simons - Sweet Mama's. family knows me too well :)

Saturday morning we went to Dixie Kitchen for breakfast, and then mom and I dropped Matt, dad, and MB off to watch the Northwestern football game while we did a little shopping with Will! After the game we picked them up and did a little more shopping. After that we were worn out so we came home and had a little wine and played with Will before dinner!

MB gave Will a bath and then rocked him to sleep in his chick pj's. She was a pro and he was pretty happy!

Sunday we went to church and then took a picnic of chicken and tuna salad, croissants, fruit, and cheese and crackers to the park. It was such a beautiful day and a great day to be outside! We took about 300 pictures of Will (literally!)...I'll go through them all and show a few of them soon!

They had to leave late afternoon to get back to the airport and it was sad to see them go! I miss them so much already!
