wip 4.13.13

evening was family time! taco night.
nick was insistent upon making a beverage. he decided on horchata last minute. i'm not a huge fan, but everyone else loved it.
ben even liked it enough that he stole brianna's when she wasn't looking!

playing the trust game with auntie bri. 

our silly kitty. ben likes to give her cat nap. 

dessert was a homemade lemon cake with raspberries. so good. disregard the missing piece and lost raspberry. i couldn' take a picture quick enough. everyone was anxious to dive in!

spent the morning snuggling with beans.
when nick finally woke up, he got a phone call and had to head out to work. so that meant more snuggle time with ben. seriously, love napping with that kid.
when nick got home, we headed out for a dinner date before seeing his dad's band play at a local bar.

went to lucrezia's thinking that it would be close to the bar.
some obligatory food photos. not the best, but oh well. apps, meal, terribly delicious but not so photogenic dessert, and nick is always happy when he can end a meal with a cappuccino. i forget what this was. it wasn't a cappuccino, but it was tasty! 

were getting ready to head to the bar and my lil bro asked us to be his dd. so we headed the opposite direction to pick him up and headed back out the way we were. he's lucky we love him. ;)

the band getting ready.
nick's dad is the keyboard player.

kevin, my brother, and his girlfriend, bk.
she had just turned 21 earlier in the week. was her 'first' bar experience. so happy we were a part of it, even if i couldn't imbibe with them.

{please pardon the wide variety of the quality of pictures. i cannot remember which ones came from where. there were iphone photos and regular camera photos. then there were a zillion photos that were texted to one another.}

nick and i...

a wee bit nicer version. ;)

some of my lovely lady friends came out!
yay jamie for making me not be the only pregnant woman in the bar that night. 

had such a good time with everyone. so happy the could make it.
we saw boobies. there was a crazy drunk girl bopping around and it was only a matter of time. i'm not sure why we didn't take bets on when it would happen. was kind of funny that the entire bar cheered when it happened. i think we were all thinking the same thing.

my drunken hubby and i dancing. again, not sure who picked up the camera for me, but thanks friend. ;)

was kinda bummed that i couldn't really be up there dancing. this baby bug has put a damper on some of my activities, but that's okay. whatever is necessary to have a healthy baby in the end.


and a cute one of michelle dancing away. not the best quality. but i love how happy she looks. 


was a late night. we closed the bar down. i was super tired. but it was oh so worth it.

my morning to sleep in. came downstairs to this...
i guess someone had a little too much. and another someone wanted to be liked daddy. ;)

went to nick's mom's that afternoon to celebrate his sister's birthday
ben and noah enjoying trouble.

ben and his blue sugar drink and new dolphin that gigi brought him from florida. 

a cousin pile up on the couch?

 silly chester. such a chubby kitty. reminds me of nibbies. 

had family story time at bedtime. nick was trying to read a book and it was too dark. {we seriously need head lamps for us. i think i might actually purchase some. his room is just not conducive to bedtime stories. the lighting blows.}

nick decided his phone would be an appropriate light...
{my camera flash made it appear brighter than it actually was.}


phew. a crazy, tiring weekend spent with family and friends. we were exhausted by the end of it, but it's always totally worth it.
