finding the silver lining...

this weekend was filled with friends..fondue..and family!

seeing that saturday was supposed to be the big night of the weekend.. i thought that we would have a quiet friday night at home. kyle got off early on friday and golfed the afternoon away with ryan rowland. then they decided to get a small game of cards together...and before i knew it - there were 20 people here. that does include little ones, but they count too!!! korb, bex, ava and elle had a great time hanging out passed their bedtime. and elle showed off her walking skills. so cute! like most late nights at team palmers. the camera didnt make it out til really late. however, i thought this pic was definitely worth posting just to show the randomness of the crowd. it also happened to be brye carters birthday - and we are complete terds for not remembering! that will not happen again... happy belated birthday brye!!! though it wasnt what i had in mind for friday night, it is nice to have good friends...
yep..thats mike bledsoe and blake arnold. ???
this months GNO was modified a bit. we decided to invite the guys along for a nice dinner out. we chose the melting pot.. the vibe was not exactly as we had hoped it would be. but we made the best of a few bad attitudes and had a good time despite their negativity. it was really good to see everyone! and as i said a million times on the way home - thank you to kyle for being a good sport! it means a lot...
thats me and my man!!!
jason & mark clearly having a terrible time...
the way the entire night probably should have been.. GNO.
korb shared a sitter with the cusano boys during our fondue event. afterwards we went back to the cusano compound ourselves and crashed for the night too. we did catch some slack from the kid-less about not hanging out longer. there are those moments when you'd like to hangout and not have to worry about picking up the baby. but when you see how happy they are to see you.. they quickly pass. someday there will be little b-dubs smiling at them from the back seat on their way to the sitter for a night out and they wont mind going home right after dinner either! love ya nikki!
look at my handsome blue eyes.. not my thighs!!!
when korb finally got up saturday morning, a little before 10am, we made our way downstairs so that he could play with jackson for a little while before we loaded up and drove home. he and jackson had a great time together! he played with one of jackson's golf clubs the entire time. maybe we have a little tiger on our hands... and speaking of tiger - we spent the afternoon doing chores around the house, watching tiger make a fool of rory sabbatini, eating two out of three meals that day with team cardwell, celebrating a little with kurt busch and watching the first pre-season NFL game. finally..football again!!! in between eating and sports we found time to take korb and ava to the pool for a little while. and out for icecream. as you can see they are becoming as good of friends as their mommies and daddies.
at the pool..
korb & ava holding hands on an ice cream date!
maybe the sweetest pics ever...


we also got a call from my brother on sunday.. looks like there's a really good possibility that we will be spending a lot more time with them this fall!!!! korb and dalton might even get to hangout a few days a week... more details to come. i think they are seeing the silver lining to the h-town cloud this week too!!!

now..if you will excuse me ---- KENNEDY will be home in about an hour!!! and i have a few things still to do before her arrival... it stinks for her to be away, but the joy of reunions and realizing how much you mean to each other is definitely the silver lining there..

Those little hands holding each other is about the cutest thing I've ever seen!

I heard Mark say "I have never laughed so hard at dinner!" Are you sure he didn't have fun? :)

Those boys will never admit to it, but they DID have a blast...so THANK YOU for planning this!

Oh, and I like your comment about the little b-dubs...give us a few years, and I'll be there.
