Our Weekend Recap

We had another fun, full weekend around here.

Friday the kids and I laid low and rented a movie from the Redbox and enjoyed some popcorn with melted sprinkles! Yummy...

Jaxson sacked out early which gave me a chance to put little miss down and enjoy some quite time. I sipped some red wine and had some chocolate all while laying in bed catching up on some t.v. shows. Perfection!

Saturday morning the kids and I hung around home while the hubby helped someone reroof his house while it poured! Poor guys!

I met up with my friend Laura for a much needed pedicure and a late lunch! We enjoyed some delicious Mexican food and since it was happy hour we got smokin good deals.

Afterward we headed out to do some shopping. We browsed through some antique shops and local boutiques. The kinds of places I can never go in when I have four little hands always reaching for something!

Saturday evening we had a family birthday party for a cousin and it was great to catch up.

Sunday we had yet another birthday party and this time it was to celebrate my Grandpa and his 80th birthday!

My grandpa absolutely loves ding dongs and it has become a running joke that on anyone's birthday they get a box of ding dongs for their cake. My mom took it one step further and had a special ding dong cake made for him. It was so good!

The kids got a chance to play with their cousins which they only see once or twice a year. Kendra is the only girl and there were 6 boys.  She knows how to hold her own, though!

The pic is a bit blurry but this was too cute not to share. Jaxson informed me that he had a baby in his belly. I wasn't quite sure how to explain this to him so I ignored it instead. That is some stellar parenting right there. ;)


  1. A Ding Dong cake?! AMAZING! : )
