Another Great Weekend!

We had another fun-filled weekend! It started with the arrival of our families on Friday night and dinner at our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant in Houston, Lupe Tortilla. I wish I'd remembered to bring my camera that night because the waiters surprised Ross' sister, Leslie, by sneaking up behind her, putting a sombrero on her head, and singing happy birthday to her. We were outside and it was dark, but you could still see her face turn bright red!

Saturday was our annual crawfish boil. It seems to get bigger and, hopefully, better every year. This year we had around 80 people in our backyard enjoying the beautiful weather and some good Louisiana style food! There's a debate over who gets the award for furthest travel this year. It's either my cousin Meg who flew in from Atlanta or our friend Al from Ireland who's in Houston working on his PhD at Rice. Check out the pics in the album to see how much fun everyone had.

To top off the weekend, my friends Emma, Christie, and Lauren hosted a wonderful baby shower for Jackson on Sunday. They decorated with adorable onesies and a diaper cake, and they even had a cake shaped like a baby and m&ms with "Jackson Dean" and "Baby Taylor" written on them! We played some fun baby shower games...including the one where everyone guesses how big I am using toilet paper squares, and Jackson racked up on baby stuff! There are a few pics from the shower in the album too.
