I seriously don't know if we could have crammed any more (mostly fun stuff) into this past weekend!!! We started off the craziness on Thursday at 7 am with a visit to the dermatologist for me to get a cyst in my back removed. I've had it for over 10 years now and it had gotten quite big...so it was time to say goodbye. That went really well and I'll spare you the pictures, although I did get David to take some so I could see what was going on...I'm weird...I already know that. Ashlyn had a fun packed day with GrandMary on Thursday and Friday! She plays so hard when she is over there that she is Worn Out! when she comes home. Saturday morning we got up bright and early to get ready to go to Easterfest. Easterfest is a community outreach that our (new) church had done for the past few years. It is a free event with lunch, inflatables and games and (this year a 10,000 egg!) Easter Egg Hunt. We were told on Sunday that they felt that a safe, conservative estimate of the turn out was 2,300 people!!!! It was great fun and Ashlyn participated in her first Easter Egg Hunt! She got two eggs...one for each hand and we left the rest for everyone else. :o)
We left Easterfest and headed up to New Market (close to Huntsville) to meet our "Long Lost English Cousin". We had SO MUCH FUN! It has been entirely too long since I've seen most of my Dad's side of the family and I missed them very much! Most of them hadn't met Ashlyn yet so it was fun to introduce her to all her relatives. Natalie is a sweet, beautiful, lovely person and we really enjoyed spending time with her and her husband, Paul and son, Kieran! Besides the accent...they blended right in!!!
Sacked out on Uncle Joe's lap. She Loves her some Uncle Joe!!!
Next weekend is another crazy one! Southern Dining Resources is doing concessions at Panopoly (apparently not pronounced like it's spelled-found that out this weekend)...an arts festival in Huntsville. I'm planning to take off work Friday and go up early to visit the family a little more! Lots to do before then...so I guess I'll get busy now!
