LAST weekend. Ha!

Okay--so this week coming up is spring break and let me just tell you guys--I LOVE our busy life but I am looking forward to a week with nothing planned that we HAVE to do. Every once in a while those are just nice. Especially since this past week and weekend have been packed with activities--all wonderful activities but packed! So, I am just now getting around to blogging about last weekend (like a week ago). Friday night DeDe was in town and she watched the kids so that Matt and I could go out with some friends.
It was our friend Sarah's birthday so we went to the Mellow Mushroom to celebrate with her. It was so much fun hanging out and we were so blessed to be able to help her celebrate.
Saturday morning we got up and went to this little sweet thing's (Cilla) birthday party.
It was a barn party (the barn was nicer than our house--and I love our house--but it isn't what I was expecting when I heard we were going to a "barn" party). Rebekah did such a great job with all of the details. She even had mason jars for the drink glasses. Is that not the cutest idea? I digress...it is late and I am feeling chatty.
My handsome man on a pony ride. Gosh I could just eat him up!
Sweet, silly, busy Lilly on the go while eating one of like three cupcakes that she ate. Every time I turned around she had grabbed another cupcake.
Reid, on the other hand, kept sneaking cakeballs. He was double-fisting it too. Our kids like dessert!
Lilly loved this carpet ball (? Is that the technical name? I don't know.) game.
And Reid loved the roller coaster. Riding on it, laying on it, walking on it...didn't matter...he found it all entertaining. We had a great time at the party! Then the kids went home and napped and I went to a baby shower for my sweet friend Laura. They aren't finding out what they are having. Can I just tell you all that it is driving me crazy! I need to know people! (: Then we went and ate cupcakes (before dinner because there was a wait at the restaurant) and then had dinner at a local burger place with DeDe, MoMo, Aunt Shelly, Uncle Tom, and cousins Ethan and Emma. We had a waitress that was so rude it was hilarious. I almost felt like cameras were going to appear out of nowhere and they were going to tell us we were being some unfamous version of Punked. I pray she is having a better day today. (:
Sunday we went to church and then hung out with DeDe before she had to go home (boooo).
Then Sunday night we cooked out with MoMo and PaPa Ray and my Grandma Berti (who I just realized I haven't updated since she had the stroke--she is doing great!). The kids were so spoiled rotten from having both grandparents in town at the same time. Gotta love those "granny detox" days. Ha!
Reid (and Lilly) are ready to welcome them back anytime!!

What a fun weekend with friends and family! Thank you for writing the sweetest comments on my blog. Yes, as hard as it is sometimes missing my sweetheart God has blessed me so much with friendships and things to encourage me while he's away. God knows just what we need. Reid looks so tall to me!
