Last night, we went out for dinner. Philip decided we should go to Giuseppe's Wharf, since it's unique to our area and his family could try something new. We had a nice evening and got some fun pictures too.
Keenan and I checking out the view (I'm certainly looking pregnant here!)

Surprise! Keenan was getting bored, so he and Philip went for a walk... and ended up outside our window!
Mom, Jeff and Isaac got here safe and sound last night and it didn't take Keenan long to warm up and start "picking on" his uncle Isaac! =)
So much for picking on someone your own size... =)
"Hey Uncle Isaac, play with me!"
Today was the Eglin Residency Beach Bash at the Air Force beach on Okalossa Island. It's another opportunity for the new interns to get to know everyone. Aside from being at the beach with a ton of our favorite people, the highlight was definitely the meat... beef brisket, prepared by Matt Ramage (as well as a loyal crew who helped him with the rubbing and smoking waay into the night last night!) Sooo tender and tasty!
Keenan didn't nap this morning (or on the way in the van, like we hoped), so he was pretty much exhausted from the get go. The only thing that made him happy was eating chips at first. After a while, he finally got so sleepy that Mom was able to push him in the stroller and he fell asleep and napped for about 40 minutes. That improved his mood some, but he was still pretty cranky until Mom, Jeff and Isaac took him swimming while Philip and I stayed in the pavilion for some activities.
Keenan and I have been getting the house ready for our first company in a long while! Philip's Mom and Jeff and his little brother, Isaac are coming to spend a few days with us on their way to Ohio. They'll get here sometime this evening and will head out again on Monday morning. It should be a really fun weekend together!
We had a Wonderful, kid free, fun evening last night!! After dropping Keenan off (where we Knew he'd have a blast with Christopher and William), we headed over to the O Club for social hour before the banquet started. It was awesome to be able to mingle and chat, and just be ourselves without our little guy to watch out for. I did miss him, but we had a Great time!
This picture is before we left the house... I knew the rain was going to steal my curls!
Me and Isaac
The food was amazing, and yes, I ate all of this (and a little more!)
The tables were big, so were able to sit with most of our favorite people. Here's everyone that was at our table:
Matt and Tiff
Andrea and Erik
Jodi and Cliff
Rob's wife (Sarah) is in Colorado, so he cuddled up to Philip
Wendi, Kacey and Isaac
...and with John (he arrived late because he was delivering a baby!)
Philip and Kacey were both selected for the Internal Medicine Intern(s) of the Year Award!
Tiffany seems to be catching the baby bug... hmmm...
Isaac and his Mom =)
I think we all clean up pretty well! =) (l-r) Jodi, Johanna, Me, Tiff, Wendi, Andrea, Kacey and Robin
Me with my favorite guy again
After dinner, they presented a bunch of awards, and then each class (as well as the staff), showed videos they had done of the past year. They were all sooo hilarious!! Matt and John were in charge of the video for our class and did an Amazing job (full of continuous laughs)! I had no idea our husbands worked with so many funny people! =)
When we went to pick up Keenan (after nine), he was still running around having a grand old time, and hardly seemed to care that we were there! He, William and Christopher had had a great four hours together, eating, playing, getting filthy and then having a bath together! (Brandon and Brittney gave us a picture of that which I'll scan and post later).
