Auggie met his Great Grandma and Grandpa on Wednesday! He was so good for them! They are on their way back to Ohio after a long vacation in Florida. They got to spend about 6 weeks in their condo on the beach. It was nice to hear they had great weather this time- last year, they had to wear winter coats the whole time. That's saying something from Ohioans! This year they missed all the snow in Ohio, though. Apparently, they had snow on the ground for 45 days had it all melt and then it snowed again! How do people go out?? I love snow but I couldn't handle all that!
They came to College Station with my mom around lunch time. The five of us ended up going to Cotton Patch for lunch. It was Auggie's first restaurant outing! Coincidentally, mine and Tim's first date was at a Cotton Patch! He was great while we ate. He didn't even fuss when Grandpa knocked over his water. I'm sure the waiter just loved us. Everyone was a good sport about it but man, I've never seen my Grandpa move so fast! If you went to our wedding and danced, I'm sure you know Grandpa. He battled Jacob and Marshall to a mini dance-off. So I definitely knew he could move but didn't think he was that fast! He only got a few little dribbles of water on his shirt and pants.

Drake will be turning 2 on Saturday! I can't believe. And again, we'll be the only ones not there. I think I have a particularly harder time dealing with not going to my family's events because we aren't all able to get together with everyone often. At least, in the past few years someone has always been missing- Mom & Dad in Qatar; Mom here but Dad in Qatar; Mom & Dad in Qatar, Kristopher here.... It
Don't think I don't love being around the Siegmund side because I do. Since that first Christmas at Mommo's when I was so nervous about meeting everyone... and yea, I mean everyone- They have always made me felt like I've been apart of their family. Like I had known them forever!
Like I told Jamie, though... I'd definitely trade some things to be able to this weekend. But like Tim told me last night... Don't focus on it. So here's me not focusing on it. Onto some pictures from Wednesday!

Auggie has his 4 month check up with Dr. T tomorrow. Can you believe it?? He's 4 months old already! Next week we're headed back to Austin to see Dr. K. I'm hoping we get the okay to start going out... but I'm sure he'll just say like he has in the past, "You can take him out but you're always taking the chance of him getting sick."
So until Tuesday....
