What a fantastic weekend we had!!! We went to Phila, PA where our families live to celebrate Matthew's 2nd birthday with all of our friends and family!!! Matt and Mommy were scheduled to fly to PA while Daddy jumped in the car and drove so we made sure we had plenty of room to bring things back!!! As usual, the airlines do not cooperate, we were originally scheduled to fly from Huntsville to Atlanta and then Atlanta to Philadelphia arriving at approximately 3 pm on friday afternoon. But, as we all know, when flying, things don't usually happen as expected. Daddy left to start the long drive on thursday evening and Matt and Mommy woke up early on friday morning, took the puppies to the kennel and headed to the airport. When we got there, the flight to Atlanta was several hours delayed causing us to miss our connection to Phila. Fortunately, with Daddy driving, we were able to jump on a flight that took us to DC where Daddy picked us up when we arrived. Friday afternoon and even worse, a holiday weekend on Friday afternoon in the Northeast, are usually never a good combination and what should have taken us 2+ hours took us almost 5 hours in the car.......not good for poor Matt!!! We finally made it to Phila at approximately 7 pm to a house full of Cousins, Aunts, Uncles and MomMom and PopPop waiting on our arrival. Saturday was Matthew's Birthday party and he got to meet a whole bunch of family including more Aunts, Uncles, and cousins that he had not yet met!!! What fun we had!!! He was Mama's boy for the 1st few hours not wanting me out of his sight but then he realized, his cousins were alot more fun that Mama and jumped into gear running and playing with them all!!! He loved everyone singing Happy Birthday to him and clapped his hands as everyone sang!!! As you can see from the pictures, he absolutely loved his Elmo cake and made a big mess but had soooooo much fun!!!! He definately has a sweet little tooth!!! The whole weekend was filled with lots of fun and family - who could ask for more!!!! Definately a weekend no one will ever forget!!!!
