Addison and I went to visit Tracy in NC after a whole month of not seeing each other. Our plane departed from Austin at 5:30 Friday morning. The only consolation is that it was 6:30 eastern time. We had a longish layover in Atlanta and arrived about 2:00 in NC. Kara Webb picked us up at the airport with her daughter Allison. Thank goodness they call her Allie, or Allison and Addison could get pretty confusing. We went to her house where I met her husband Lance and their son Graham. Tracy came to their house after he got off work! We all loaded up and went to Texas Road House. It's a little bit ironic but they have the best steaks in the area according to Kara. We had a good time talking with them and getting to know the Webbs.
Saturday we ate the continental breakfast and headed out for some errands. I suppose it wouldn't be a trip to a base without going to clothing and sales. I got a few things, Tracy picked up some things and before you know it we were out the door with $100 worth of stuff. While in Wal-mart we got news that Isaac Thunder Lemmon was born! He was born 1:42 pm, 7lbs. 1 oz, 19 inches long! Saturday night we went back to the Webbs for dinner and played a not so great game of Skip-bo. Kara and I got killed by the boys :(
On Sunday we enjoyed a relaxing breakfast at IHOP with the rest of Fayetteville. We got back to the hotel and realized Addison had a fever of 103. We spent the rest of the day hanging out, monitoring the fever and watching the Cowboys game. Tracy had to leave that night so that stunk.
Over all it was a great weekend! It was good to see Tracy and he enjoyed seeing us. I'm still not sure who he liked seeing more, me or Addison. He might even say Addison. We got to spend some time together and with some friends!
Getting back to Austin was a long story I'd rather not talk about. Who likes to talk about really frustrating travel delays? We finally made it home and I was able to hold baby Isaac for the first time! I forget how small newborns are. He has darkish skin (compared to my pale little Addison) and very little hair. When he is awake he can be quite alert but he sleeps and eats most of the time.
Today is our first day at home all together. Drew took off around noon headed to Dallas. We will miss him. I got assigned his dish washing duties :/ The good news is that Addison has no fever today, so I don't have to drive an hour to her doctor!
