Weekend Recap

Another weekend has come and gone! We had a really uneventful weekend for the most part. Nothing on the agenda which was nice because the weather was BEAUTIFUL so we got to enjoy it!

Saturday morning I totally slept in. I didn't here our boys get up. Typically Gabe will come into our room and wake us up or get in bed with us a few minutes before we start our day. He must have gone to Andrew's side and they got up together. When I got up, the crew was eating chocolate chips pancakes Andrew had made and it was 8 o'clock!!! I made myself some breakfast and then we packed up the car to head to a local conservation area to enjoy the day.

Hudson rode his bike and Beau and Gabe switched between riding in the stroller and running. We walked around 4 miles. We saw so many people out and about and it could be my imagination because I was in such a good mood, but people were just the friendliest!!

We got home and had lunch and the boys were worn out! They all went down for a nap and while they slept I got a little work done, Andrew ran a quick errand and then I made a quick trip to the nail salon. When I got home, Hud and Beau were awake and out playing. They were riding bikes and roller skating in our cul-de-sac. As Andrew and I were out watching them, some other boys from the neighborhood (a few streets over) came by and Hudson recognized them from the bus. They all went to the back and played on our swing set. I got a little emotional because I realized that simple act is just another reminder that Hudson is getting bigger, learning new things and getting so independent.

Later, our sweet neighbors and their littles came out later too. They have two kids right around the same age as ours so I can not wait for warm weather and slower schedules of no school!

Saturday night I went to a friend's house. She lives two streets over in our neighborhood.

{Random side story-- When I taught first grade, I taught with three other teachers. Three of the four of us all live within the same subdivision now. Another of my best friends from teacher lives just across the main street (walking distance). And Lacy's, whose house I went to Saturday, husband I grew up together. I prayed for adult meaningful friendships our first year of marriage and talk about God blessing us abundantly!!!}

She was having a sign party. Our friend Emily creates these awesome wood signs and in the last year started hosting private classes for you to create your own. I have done two others and they are so much fun and just a great girl's night! Plus you leave with some new decor for your house!

This was a custom piece I had her do for me last fall. You can check out more of her work here. <3 Parenthood!

Sunday was a busy morning of double church. Both Andrew and I had to serve in the kid's area so we all went to big church and then the boys went to their classes while Andrew and I served. They were so good being at church all morning so we rewarded them with Mexican for lunch. (Ok---maybe that was a little bit for us, too!)

Then it was football watching, nerf gun wars, some reading and getting ready for another busy week.

We may not have done much this weekend but it was a pretty great one. It's back to cold weather today but I am now more than ready for spring and summer!!!
