Happy Monday, friends!!! This weekend has been a whirlwind!!! TONS of activity and lots and lots of fun.
Friday morning the boys were off to their last day of VBS and Griffin and I headed out for a full morning of errands.
She picked her dress and accessories - Holy pink, Batman! Girlfriend knows what she likes.... and it's pink :)
After a stop to pick up some signs and a trip to Whole Foods we stopped in at Trader Joes. She made herself at home.
Apparently it's the end of peony season, so we stocked up!
I was hauling around all kinds of pretties.
Typically Griffin is in the middle and Mason and the boys are in the third row, but she and Mason switched seats last week and they've gotten a huge kick out of sitting in each others carseats.
Last stop was our neighborhood store to pick up a bunch of produce for the shower, our daily lives and a 5K that some of our friends were hosting this weekend as well.
After running around like crazy people all morning and then picking up the boys, it was naps for everyone and then our last day swim lessons!
Look at these three cuties! Even from the back they're stinkin' precious :)
All three kids made so much progress this week and it was so much fun to watch them. On Friday the boys worked on diving...
And G worked on shooting cute glances at the boys and her daddy :)
Medals and suckers - success!
Friday night I worked on shower prep and my dad came over and hung up my new sign. I am IN LOVE!!!
Saturday morning I hosted a baby shower for my sister-in-law (which I'll blog about on another day), and while I was getting everything ready, Dave took the kids to a Princess Breakfast going on at the Country Club. Griffin looks a little confused, but she talked about "pincesses" all day long.
Dave dropped Griffin back off at home for the baby shower and he and the boys went to the park and to Pet Smart. Apparently they were doing a "reptile handling" day and they got to hold Walter the bearded dragon. EEEK!
Saturday afternoon the Heaven's opened up, angels started singing and everyone in my house was asleep for close to two hours. AAAAAAAH!!!!
Saturday afternoon this cool kid made a skateboard out of Legos...
... and then my dad and I took the boys to see Chuggington Live where I attempted to take a picture of these instead :)
We had so much fun and ate way too much popcorn. It was a great night.
Sunday morning Mason brought home the BEST Sunday School craft ever! His teachers went above and beyond to create something super special. Isn't it the best???
Sunday night we had dinner with the Shulls at the pool - our favorite kinds of dinners! These two girls are going to be TROUBLE! :) The big kids were too busy swimming, playing tether ball and running a muck for a picture. hahaha
After dinner, our party of 5 loaded up in a golf cart to "cruise" the course.
Dave wasn't looking, but majority rules :) hahaha #sorrydave
When I moved to Texas in 1997, we moved into a house on the golf course that looked right onto these two HUGE trees. We took prom pictures under these trees, I would bring a blanket and book out there on days when the course was closed, we ran through the golf course sprinklers ALL THE TIME and would chase lightning bugs underneath the big tree. Last night we took the kids by the tree and had a "full circle" moment.
I'm not sure when my parents bought that house almost 20 years ago that they thought their three grandkids would be running around underneath it :)
I thought it was only appropriate to get an updated pic of Dave and I by the tree considering the last time we did this was probably my Senior Prom in 2002. I'm fairly certain that the last time I stood under this tree for a pic I looked a LOT cuter :) hahaha
Looking for turtles.
We stopped by Gibi and Haha's backyard and the boys wanted to show them how fast they are. Because boys! :)
On our way back to the clubhouse we stopped and watched a flock of geese. The kids thought they were hilarious!
A quick pic on the putting green and we headed home for baths and bed.
It was a perfect summer night!
Here's hoping that your weekend was filled with your favorite things and people.
Don't forget that tomorrow is Show and Tell: Yards and Outdoor spaces. I may show pictures of our yard from last year since it is kind of a hot mess after all the rain we've had. Or I may show pictures of our mulch bags that still haven't been spread and sandbox that is a disaster and a half :) I need some outdoor inspiration, so be sure to link up and share!
