Because I'm too wrapped up in getting organized for this baptism. And I've been running around all evening with poor Louie all fussy in the back seat of the car while I take care of boring errands like buying paper plates and napkins in my chosen color scheme and stopping at the bakery to order the cake.
Because my mom spontaneously offered to take Gus overnight. My dad is on travel for work and truly, I think she's a little lonely after a week in the house by herself. (Within moments of deciding on it, she was already talking to him about sleeping in her bed tonight so they can snuggle. So sweet.)
Because Gus being at grandma's and Louie sleeping means Dan and I have some free time and it would be really nice to just veg out in front of the TV.
I wish we had beer.
Anyway, so just for fun here are some pictures from a forgotten summer weekend. Because it never happened if I didn't blog about it, right?. My parents, my brother, and his wife spent a weekend in July with us up at Dan's family's cabin, and it was loud and fun and I'm sure exhausting, though the pictures never sufficiently tell THAT story, do they? :)
