What a weekend! My family decided to make one last trip to Copley before baby Jill enters our lives. Quality time with Lexi (and Kaitlyn) was the main goal - along with a baseball draft for Benny and Matt on Saturday. Uncle Benny arrived on Thursday, but was only here for a short time - he had funeral viewing to attend in Warren, Ohio on Thursday evening. Gra-Nola and PaPa Gary were the next to arrive around 8 pm on Thursday night. They had both taken Friday off work and were planning a "Lexi" day on Friday. Lexi opened her Easter gifts and we all headed for bed. While daddy was at work and uncle Benny was at the funeral on Friday, mommy, PaPa Gary, Gra-Nola and Lexi went to Target and to the Lodi Outlet Mall. We picked up a few needs for baby Jill and also a few clearance clothing items for Lexi (for next fall/winter). Lexi also got to ride the Lodi Express Train! We got home around 2:30 just as uncle Benny was getting there. Lexi had her nap and we waited for daddy to get home around 9:20.
Mommy had to work on Saturday and wasn't home for Matt and Benny's baseball draft or to welcome aunt Brittany, uncle Matt and cousin Kaity (and Patton, too). When mommy got home from work, everyone was there and dinner of beef-n-noodles and mashed taters was well on it's way to being set on the table. The rest of Saturday moved quickly and before we knew it Sunday was here. Gra-Nola and PaPa Gary got up and left early to make it to Columbus Grove in time for church. After a lunch of left-overs, uncle Benny left to meet Julie around 2 pm and uncle Matt and aunt Brittany packed up and left around 2:30. It was a crazy weekend, but was great to see everyone. Probably won't be together again until our family has grown by one more!
