It’s already a distant memory but this past weekend was the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. The kids had a doctors appointment the Friday before that so I decided to take that day off and make it a four day weekend.
That whole weekend was a ton of fun. The doctors appointment went great and everyone is growing like they should be. Afterwards we went to the in-laws to hang out and they bought some pizza’s. Saturday was easy going. Sunday we had church and then lunch with my parents.
Lunch with my parents typically ends up at Cracker Barrel which is sometimes good and other times not so good. Luckily this time was good however, our server came out with coffee mugs and no coffee to which I replied, “Something is missing here.” With a big smile of course. She smiles back and says, “We’re serving pretend coffee and pretend food today.” I just chuckled and told her that was ok because I’d be “paying with pretend money and leaving a pretend tip.” Things weren’t so funny after that.
Monday was MLK day and we took it pretty easy. I think Angi went out for a hair cut leaving me with the kids and everything went well. That day was my brother-in-laws birthday and we went out to the Cheesecake Factory despite the cries from my wallet. Luckily, like my dad did for us at Cracker Barrel, Angi’s dad picked up the check. Which I’m sure was huge considering me and Angi both ordered deserts there 🙂
The rest of the week went by in a blur. Angi heads back to work this week so there was quite a bit of sadness that we’ll have to send our precious children off to day care but I’m sure they’ll be in very capable hands.
In parting I leave you with a picture of the kids from their doctors appointment. The second one is James kissing his little sister. They looked so cute together I couldn’t resist snapping a pic!
The wife and I (along with unborn baby Cochran) went to go see Third Day live in Bloomington recently and it was great. We had pretty good seats which I’ve talked about before here. Also the opening acts were great. So great in fact that I picked up Revive’s and NEEDTOBREATHE’s albums and even met the guys from Revive and had them sign their cd for me.
Third Day came out and rocked our socks off as usual. They played an awesome set. Speaking of which how about I run down the set list for you here real quick. I know this has changed in the shows since and they are doing a couple of acoustic songs now but it’s basically the same and what you can expect if you are going to any of the future shows in this tour.
This Is Who I Am
I Got A Feelin’
Call My Name
I’ve Always Loved You
King of Glory
Run To You
Always Be True
Cry Out To Jesus
God of Wonders
As you can see I think we got our money’s worth! Afterwards we got to go back stage and meet the band along with about a hundred other people. We did get a couple of minutes with each guy though to say hey and tell them how much we enjoyed the show. Of course after everyone was done shaking hands we got a picture. The first one here is while we were talking to the drummer David and the second is us with the band. Notice how Angi got the guys to sign her “baby bump” instead of anything like a cd or a poster of the band.
Finally, here is a little video post card that the band posted on YoutTube from the Bloomington show we went to. If you ever have the chance to go see them live you should do it. It’s always a blast and they know how to rock!
My wife had her ultrasound today and everything looks normal. We (she) didn’t want to find out the sex of the baby so I guess you’ll all find out in January just like us. I made sure to drive extra crazy on the way to the doctor to make sure the baby would be awake and it was moving all around and waving and smiling at us. At least that’s what it looked like to me. Of course we were able to see the heart much better this time. It really stands out since it is beating at like 140bpm so you can see it real well. We saw the spine, kidneys, brain, belly, etc… Two hand and two feet, 4 chamber heart, and like I said, everything seems normal. So without further ado here are some pictures:
I recieved a new camera about a week and a half ago as a gift from my mom. I wanted something that could take pictures quickly and had a big zoom. There was a Canon I had in mind but this Sony fits the bill fine. DPReview has a good review of it if you want to check it out. I mainly just wanted to post a few pictures I took with it over the past few days. In the future I hope to post my pictures of things I take but for now I’ll just leave you with a few.
