Daddy's Birthday means a fun visit from Pop!

Shane's birthday was a couple of weeks ago and we decided to make a weekend of it! On Friday night Shane & I had a fun date night and went to one of our favorite restaurants - Jasper's!! It is AMAZING! On Saturday Shane's dad came up from Abilene to spend the day with us. It has been a few months since he had seen Jorja and I think he was shocked at how big she had gotten. He ate up every minute with her. It was so awesome to watch how much he loves her! And of course, we loved spending some good quality time with him as well. I think Jorja had a great time with her Pop - he played "airplane" with her, read a book to her, and even let her shove a pen up his nose - it was a good time had by all! :) It meant a lot that he came to visit and we all wish we lived closer! Shane's mom also made him an amazing fondue dinner to celebrate the big day but unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of it. Sorry! We also got to see some old (and new) friends on Shane's birthday. Shane's old roommate Neil and his wife Leah just happened to be driving through town on Shane's b-day so we got to hang out with them and their son Jack for the night. We loved Jack - he is SUCH a cutie! I'm not sure how Jorja really felt about Jack though. All I do know is that when he went in to kiss her, she smooth put her hand up right in his face! That's my girl!! :) It was great to see the Mullins family and for Jorja to meet her new boyfriend! She's gonna be a heart breaker like her momma! HA!

Out at dinner. Jack was so sweet trying to hold Jorja's hand but she would not have any of that!

Aww - they have the same sippy cup... they must be "meant to be" :)

Hey Becky! I just saw your comment on my blog and I totally agree...we have got to hang out! Seriously! Malakai is just at the age where he's starting to love the park and just being outside. We could go to the pool here in our neighborhood if you want! Email me at jmkrieg@cebridge.net
Oh, and I made his birthday cake. I couldn't find any that I liked that were a reasonable price!

Your pictures of their first date are much better than mine! It was so good to see ya'll but it was very short! Hopefully we can spend some time together again soon. Jack said to give Jorja a high five since she doesn't like kisses.
