So after all the birthday festivities were finally completed (including giving the birthday boy a bath and putting him in bed for a nap), the flurry of activity continued. The boys had a karate lesson they had to get to, and I was giving Mom and Kelli last minute information/instructions about the kids while we were gone.
Jacob's shirt was being embroidered, so he didn't have his full uniform yet.
Jacob quickly changed into a white t-shirt so at least he had the whole karate look. This was them doing their best karate "pose". They look pretty tough don't they?
Callie looked at Kelli and I and said "You guys match! Both pink!" :) And she was right! I was so thankful that Kelli made the big trip up here - I know travelling with a baby (and making arrangements to be gone all week) is not super easy, but I was so appreciative that she came up to help my Mom. It was really great that she came up early so I got to see her. She was planning to leave back home on Saturday morning (we weren't going to be home until Saturday afternoon), so I wouldn't get to see her when we got back.
Mom and Joseph.
I know I say this alot, but it is so fun having cousins the same age! The boys are hilarious together!! In October, Joseph is going to get to come be a Schrodt for about 10 days. Kelli and Scott are going to be celebrating their 10th anniversary and are letting us play with Joe for a week and half while they celebrate with a fabulous vacation overseas. We are SO excited!!!
So then I gave hugs and kisses to everyone, left my medical insurance cards on the counter (should anyone need stitches or anything while we're gone :) ) and off we went! David had to lead choir practice and band practice, and then we were off to Spartanburg for 3 days of a music conference! We were excited!!!
