Before we left the concert though, we made new friends! Jason and Tori from Arkansas sat beside us. Now I always talk about blogs I follow with Tom. I NEVER really thought he listened. Well, when Jason and Tori told us where they were from Tom commented that they lived near my "blogger person"...I realized he meant Kelly at Kelly's Korner...turns out Tori and Kelly went to OBU together. It truly is a small world!!
Saturday morning, we got up to go to a special 2 year old birthday party, my niece Eliza Grace!
EG adores Elmo and Abby from Sesame Street so that was the theme.
Her yummy ice cream cake
Mandy and her three adorable girls- Maddie, Anna Claire, and Chloe Beth
She LOVED the lounge chair her Mimi (my mom) got her.
She wasn't too excited about the present I gave her but hopefully one day she will be! I started the "add a pearl" tradition of giving her a pearl each birthday. That way by the time she is eighteen she will have a full pearl necklace her aunt Jodi and uncle Tom have given her!

Next up was ANOTHER kid birthday party. This time for my best friend Melody and Brian's sons Carson and Finley. Carson turned 8 and Finley turned 3! Below are three of their four boys: Miles, Carson and Christopher. I should have known I couldn't get a serious smile out of all of them at once!
The two birthday boys!
As you can imagine its never boring with all four of them!
All in all it was a great weekend with great friends! Now my old self just needs a weekend to rest from my weekend!
