The kids and I had a weekend full of friends, laughter, hugs, pools, and a few fruity drinks. Well...the fruity drinks were all mine. ;) Tom, unfortunately, had a weekend full of illness. He spent the weekend on the couch, sick and missing all the fun. Soooo hoping he's on the road to recovery and that he can join in on the fun next weekend.
This felt like the first "real" weekend of summer and I'm hoping it's the first of many. I've done 4 photo shoots in the past two weeks and so this weekend, I didn't even touch the big camera. Instagram was all I needed. :)
The weekend started with a party at a friend's house for her former neighbors and the middle-school girls. Em and I crashed that party. LOL! What a great group of girls Em has found for friends. Love all of these girls!!! (Thanks so much, Linda!)
Saturday was a low-key day, hanging out with wonderful new friends at their pool and getting a sunburn on my chest. Ouch!
I didn't take photos of the next party because that's where the fruity drinks were consumed. ;) One of the best parties I've been to in a long time!
Sunday morning was perfect. Sun, coffee, the sunporch, a husband who was out of bed, and a neighborly chat.
The kids all spent the weekend swimming with friends, riding bikes, playing outside, and staying up very late. By Sunday afternoon, they were all allowed some TV and I love that they all piled on the couch on top of each other to watch the show. :)
Our evenings are usually even busier than our days and Sunday is no exception. AJ is a fixture at our house and we adore him! Em and AJ are in choir together and they sing constantly when they are together. Watching them choose songs from the ipod and dancing around my kitchen is such a great way to spend an evening.
Backgammon games with Daddy are another one of my favorite things to watch.
And then the best part of the whole weekend - snuggling with my honey under a quilt on the sunporch after a long weekend. :)
