I feel so behind on blogging that I don't really know where to begin. So, forgive me if you're confused but I'm just going to start right where I am. I've been sitting here typing sentences and then deleting them. Enough of that...

Last weekend we had a great Sunday. Really, the best thing about it was just being together for the entire day but it was also packed with fun things we did. It's one of those days that I'll be thinking of when I need a little pick-me-up.

In the morning, we went on a walk around the neighborhood- Cooper, Babette, Dadda, Momma. The weather was just gorgeous- crisp and clear. After our walk, we headed out to one of my favorite places Stella, for a late morning brunch. The food was tasty and the baby was happy. You know what I'm sayin'! Eating out these days is a gamble and this time we won! :) Cooper was on his best behavior and since the weather was so beautiful we decided to head across the street and take a stroll in historic Oakland Cemetery. I am typically creeped out by any sort of cemetery activity but for some reason this one doesn't make me feel like running the other way. We walked around, read headstones and generally allowed Cooper to stomp on people's graves. Hey, I have no control over him. He particularly enjoyed running down this "hill" we found:

Thanks to my great baby-catching skills, no one ended up with a busted lip or skinned knees.

The rest of the day we spent driving up to the Blue Ridge Mountains to meet some of our family for apple picking at a local farm. It was pretty fun. Cooper LOVED the tractor pulled wagon ride. He could hardly concentrate on apple picking for trying to get himself back to that tractor. But, he managed...

Oh, they're my favorites...

Finally, back on the wagon. Ha.

Of course I had to make Apple Crisp during naptime on Monday. Yummy stuff with all those fresh apples. An ode to a wonderful day...

And today brought a fun treat from Granny and Pop:

Best find ever at a garage sale! Cooper is in love...with a tricycle on which he can't reach the pedals. Soon enough, my little man.


  1. i know what you mean about erasing sentences over and over again - glad you just went with it!!

  2. Hi Jefiner...I'm sitting here with Grandma (who is here visiting me in Louisville) looking at your recent post. She loved your apple picking photos... so glad you're back to blogging. That Cooper is too beautiful...and you are so right...that eating out is totally a gamble (and dare I say, Tommy and I have a gambling addiction?)
    We all love you guys.

  3. Look at your little man!! Ivey is into everything, also. She keeps me on my toes!

    And, by the way, you look GREAT! :)
