our weekend and also, i still hate computers

We've had a good weekend. On Friday, my best good friend from college, Katie, and her two sweet girls came for a spontaneous visit. (I called Katie on Thursday, told her how much I missed her, asked her what she was doing the next day, and she rescheduled an appointment and came! Good friend. :) ) We had a great day, and in the afternoon, after the kids' naps and Jonah's lunch tube feed, we went to an adorable bakery in our cute downtown for cupcakes, then to a gift shop (mistake: that was breakables central... luckily our kids didn't break, but it was stressful), and then to the public library. It was Jonah's first trip to the library (and my first one to the library in our town - three years... shameful), and he had a great time. He played with one of those big wooden cube toys that has a different activity on each side and then sat in a big boy chair and worked on puzzles. He was so cute and had a blast! He really was a joy the whole time. And I can't tell you how much I love Katie and how great it is to spend time with her. She's one of those friends you just pick up right where you left off with, tell each other exactly how you feel or what you're thinking, and it's completely okay.


Then, on Saturday, Matt hung with Jonah for about four hours while I went shopping... for me! I had a great time, and it was so nice to get to browse and actually try things on. I met Kathryn at Marshall's and we had a good time getting to hang out for a little bit. They were remodeling though, so Kathryn and I had to share a TINY dressing room, and there was only one mirror for all of the three dressing rooms, so that part was a little inconvenient. When I went back a second time to try on pants, I just went to a back corner and tried my stuff on. I don't know about you other moms out there, but since I've pushed two kids out of my hoo-ha, I don't have the same view of modesty I used to have. My how life changes.


Saturday night, Matt and I went with our neighbor friends, Eric and Barbara, to a local church that is offering marriage talks combined with dance lessons. We had a great time and learned to T-A-N-G-O. We have three weeks left, and we'll learn more Tango and then have two weeks of Salsa. We had a great time, and I think it was really good for our marriage. Learning to let Matt lead is a good lesson for me. I'm sort of a control freak... in case you didn't know.


This morning, we made it to church and then just kind of hung around here this afternoon. It was the first day cool enough for Jonah to be outside, but it was pouring down rain, so we were still trapped inside. It's okay though because this week is supposed to be MUCH cooler and I think the rain is supposed to be gone by Tuesday! HOORAY FOR FALL!


I took some photos today. I downloaded the trial version of Lightroom but after importing the photos, even though I can see them right there in front of me, it says the photos are "offline or missing." I can see them but it won't let me edit them. Very frustrating. It has been a really crappy technology week for me. So I'm going to post unedited photos. And I don't like doing it, but I won't withhold the Jonah cuteness from you any longer... so here he is... in all his unedited glory. :)


UPDATE: I figured out Lightroom and edited them. I couldn't help it. It's a sickness really.

He's a cutie - no editing necessary!! Love his yoga poses! Sounds like a great weekend for all of you. We had big rain in TX on Saturday and today it was SUNNY and 75 (yes, 75!) degrees!! WOO-HOO!! Hope that's coming your way soon!

Love,
Laura

Hey! About the Lightroom thing, did you import them straight off of your camera card? Or from an other device? Sometimes in Lightroom, you have to have the actual device still attached to the computer in order to edit the photos...super weird, I know! I was stumped with that one! I do love Lightroom though :)

Brian promised me we could take dance classes 2 years ago, but I've never held him to it. You've inspired me! Just wait til he gets home...he's gettin' a reminder! ;) Keep takin' those awesome pictures! Love, Jennifer

Oh My, I can almost hear him in those pictures! So alive! Thanks for sharing them!

Cristi said...

Oh my goodness some of the expressions on his face are priceless! What a cutie.

Tracy said...

I don't think I have ever commented here before but I had to when I read that you were having editing problems with Lightroom. The same thing has happened to me before. Did you move the pictures from the original place that they were imported to? If so move the pictures back to where they originally were and they should be able to be edited. Hope this works for you. Good luck!
