Whirlwind

We just got back from a few hours in Birmingham.

First, we went to the Homewood Middle School Homecoming football game and saw our dear friends the Spencers there (ALL of them: Brad, Amelia, Graham, Liza, Mary Virginia, Isaias, James and even Brad's mom Grandma Spencer was there).



Henry fell in love with Mary Virginia and didn't want her to leave the stands where he was. That face he is making while sitting in her lap is the new "I'm in love and I must be stoic lest she decide to not hold me any longer" look. He especially loved banging his hands on the bleachers in time with the marching band.



We got some good time with Bobbie and Pops on Friday. Bobbie knew Svea's favorite game of peek-a-boo...



...and sit-in-the-wagon-and-hand-me-toys-please.



We spent some time outside...



...throwing the ball in the neighbor's yard (Henry loves that carved wooden pelican to the right of his head)...



...and practicing walking in the soccer field with Pops.



Svea wanted us to keep "chasing" her...



...as Henry threw the tennis ball and caught it over and over.



Friday night we had a birthday party for Papa (is this the best picture we have???) and my hands were too full for me to take any more good photos...I can't remember if anyone else was capturing the moment. If you can see behind the picture frame that Papa is showing Henry, the birthday cake is indeed a Roll Tide theme.



We were there just hours but managed to see almost all of the in-town family. Those we didn't see are at the top of our Hit List for Thanksgiving...

Your BSC pictures are making me a little homesick. Sigh. Looks like y'all had a good time at home.
