Scenes from the weekend...

You know you're getting old when two kids' birthday parties, a Costco run and dinner at Chick-fil-A make for the perfect Saturday! It was a whirlwind day but the best kind. Pre-kids, I loved kid parties. Amazing food, usually some booze and fabulous, over the top decorations. You could go and actually mingle with friends. Now attending these parties with kids, it's rare that I get a moment to eat or drink or even notice the decor and mingling is replaced by chasing two toddlers. However this weekend's festivities were different. The boys had the best time at back to back parties. Started the morning off with PJs and pancakes celebrating the sweetest little lady. The best part for the boys? A bounce house! The best part for this preggers? Alcohol-free champs for mimosas! A girl can pretend, right? The boys snagged their donut party favor and were out the door to party #2. We made it just in time to catch the train! It was the cutest thing ever. We all rode the train around the neighborhood and then the kiddos played outside. Thank goodness for nice weather! I am happy to report I actually sat, chatted with friends and even enjoyed some "rail mix." How adorable is that for a train party??

The rest of the weekend was spent being productive! After church, B cleaned off our sitting porch, and I cannot wait to sit and sip a mocktail in this gorgeous Spring weather. He and G managed to organize the garage and put in some new shelving in between a little March Madness basketball watching. Thankfully I got a much needed long nap and did a little meal planning for the week followed by a family trip to Trader Joe's. Always entertaining! Just picture, Jude on B's shoulders shoving a banana in his mouth and George roaming and rooming the aisles pushing his own cart. Luckily no one was injured, and we are set for the week. Let's make it a great one!
