So, after the matinee of Chase's play on Saturday, we drove down to Monroe to see some cousins on the other side, the Abbotts!
I've had the priviledge of becoming really close with this family in the past year, or so, and I love them SO much!! Visiting them with Mama & Claire was particularly fun because Greg is Mama's oldest brother and the two of them are hilarious together!!
Sunday was Valentine's Day, and Liz (who is an AMAZING cook) made giant sugar cookies for us to decorate!!
My cousin, Shannon, got engaged a few weeks ago to Preston. They're getting married in August, and I'm so happy for the two of them! Getting to know him that weekend was a blast! He is an amazing guy and will be a great husband for Shannon and a great dad for Riley!! What a keeper!

How do you end up with something this ugly and painful on your knee without any clue how it got there??

So... yesterday afternoon was relatively peaceful and relaxing except when interrupted by the sounds of our building fire alarm going off. Sarina and I left our apartment in a very calm, cool, collected manner... we even remembered to grab our laptops, purses, and scriptures on our way out! Yay for getting things that matter!!
The alarm was really loud in our apartment... but outside, it was even LOUDER!!!
Apparently, a second story apartment on the opposite corner of the building had their sprinklers go off... no real fire... but we got to wait it out outside anyways. We went for a walk to that side of the building and saw water gushing through the walls of the apartment and through the window of the apartment below.
Here's a little bit of the flooding (this was at the beginning... it got MUCH worse before it stopped):
