Rewinding the Weekend

Sit back and relax, we have a lot to cover...we had another great weekend! (Seriously, grab yourself a beverage and a snack you're gonna be here a while.)

We decided to head to LaGrange on Friday so we wouldn't feel too rushed on Saturday before A-Day. Matt was excited because this gave us a chance to eat at a Chick-fil-A Dwarf House, he really wanted a Hot Brown.

Matt said the Hot Brown was everything he remembered and gave it two thumbs up, although he stuffed himself with everything but that last bite of toast. After Matt was one satisfied customer, the visit wouldn't be complete without a walk through the dwarf door.

We got back on the road and Abigail started this grunt/talk, which of course we think is so cute/funny and want to share it.

We finally made it to LaGrange and Abigail was still full of energy for her Nana and Papa.

Saturday was lots of fun. We headed to Auburn for A-Day. This is a Spring football game, offense versus defense, so fans can check out the team before the upcoming season. Matt wanted to support the new head coach, Gene Chizik and introduce Abigail to Auburn. This could not be done without our girl getting decked out, Auburn style.

The weather was beautiful for an afternoon on The Plains. Turns out there was a record crowd for A-Day! Abigail really enjoyed herself. She loved looking at all the people and colors; I think she thought she was actually getting to watch TV since there was so much to check out.

With a little persistence and determination, we got even got a picture with Aubie! We did a walk though campus, swinging by Samford Hall and Toomer's Corner before heading off for lunch at Niffer's. Niffer's looked the same, except this time, our table was non-alcoholic...what a difference from the many Burger Nights with the IND Crew and the AXiD Fishbowl sharing.

After we made it back to LaGrange, we had a little dessert and watched ConAir. Abigail had fun playing with her Papa some more, they have lots of fun making funny noises at each other.

We attended church this morning, followed-up with brunch at IHOP with The Greats. It was fun to see them as always...until Abigail finally gave into the need to nap. We headed off to a quick ice cream photo shoot for Scoops, our soon-to-be favorite ice cream parlor in LaGrange! Matt got plenty of great shots, but we're only including one as a sneak peak!

Abigail was so extremely exhausted she snoozed from 2 until 6:30! She slept through the entire photo shoot, us packing up the car AND driving back to Atlanta. She did miss a little excitement on the drive since...I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Once we arrived back at home and she got to eat, Abigail was all smiles again. Matt enjoyed a little naked time with our girl.

Now it's really late, Abigail & Matt have been off in dreamland for a couple hours now. I've been watching the weather and trying to finish uploading everything and telling about our wonderful weekend! I hope you enjoyed hearing/reading all about our weekend.
