This week we were able to go to Atlanta to get in a much needed visit with Lauren and Lily while Doug went onsite to work with a client of his down there. It was fantastic to get a nice long visit with Lauren since I really haven’t seen her since she came to Charlotte several months ago. We mostly spent time just chilling with Kaelen & Lily playing on the floor or talking while they napped. We did take the two of them swimming after Lily’s nap on Thursday and I got to see Lily put her ISR swim techniques to use floating on her back and swimming to the edge of the pool. Lauren showed me how to work with Kaelen on holding his breath when he goes underwater and by the end of the pool time he could do it without swallowing any water or sputtering when he came out of the water.
Thursday night Lauren took me out for Sushi! It was sooo yummy but the best part was uninterrupted girl time! We talked about everything under the sun and just relaxed. We ordered a few rolls to start and after we polished them off in short order, we put in a second order. I think our favorite roll had eel, avocado, & shrimp tempura in it. We sat at the bar so we were able to watch the sushi chef work and it was super quiet in the restaurant… just perfect!
We had to leave Friday afternoon to head home and the visit was over too quickly! This week we borrowed the chair Lauren always took Lily’s weekly pictures in all year last year. Lily waited for us to get Kaelen’s picture and then jumped in to get some pictures with Kaelen and the bear. Enjoy these pictures!
