Papa, Meredyth & Samuel

I stopped by Joy's Saturday night to see Samuel. My parents and neice Meredyth happened to be over as well. Here are a few pics...

I've added a link in my sidebar - naughtytastebud - my new baking/cooking blog. Feel free to browse! I have a feeling I'll be updating that more regularly than this one!


Sunday Funday

It started off as a Sunday with no plans. We woke up semi early and decided to try a new chuch in the area. The pastor was my youth pastor from about 15 years ago, he's also the pastor that married us. He recently moved back to the area and started a church here. We met my sister Joy there and nephew Samuel - I think I'll be able to convince Brad to come to church every Sunday as long as Samuel is there - he held him the whole time :)

After church we met my sister Jenna, Andrew & their girls at Sweet Melissa's for lunch. They invited us to go to the Botanical Gardens with them. It was wonderful. The Orchid Exhibit is currently going on and it was the perfect place to be on the 15 or 20 degree day.

Lunch at Sweet Melissa's:

So many exotic looking orchids! :
