We are moving slowly around here today!  We've been running around and super busy.  Thursday the kids had to stay at my dad and step-mom's because Joe had a routine procedure to check on his Crohn's status.  So needless to say, Friday was a little hectic, but we made it work.   Poor guy was so tired he was asleep on the couch by 6:30/7 and the kids were beat from playing outside, so I had the whole house shut down early!

Saturday I had a lot cleaning and laundry to catch up on, dance class and then the sitter came over so we could go out to our company dinner.  I failed to take any photos, but it was great food and lots of fun!

Sunday was a bit chilly, but still a gorgeous morning.  Joe was up early and wanted to take his car for a ride and bring me back my latest favorite--Green Tea Latte from Starbucks.  YUM!

I whipped up a chicken wing dip and a salad and we headed out to my dad's to celebrate my sister's birthday.

It was sunny, but cool, we hung around outside for most of the day.

The kids totally tackled Joe and I caught it on a video; hew was face timing with our brother when it happened!

Joe took the girls on a hike through the woods and we were able to snack on some steamed clams!

Despite the grumpy look, riding with Daddy is one of his favorite things!

Bri opened her gifts; lots of workout clothes (she's a gymnastics coach) and boating necessities.

Plastic tumbler/wine cups. Yes.

Her big birthday present was a wake surf board--I'm excited to see how it works!

Our step mom made a delicious multi layered ice cream cake and it was super tasty!

This boy steals all of our hearts.

After dinner we took a drive to a potential lake house we were going to rent, but we realized it wasn't exactly what we are looking for, so it's back to the drawing board for our summer vacation planning.

I made a quick video of yesterday's fun.  

I'm trying to meal plan and get my head on straight, while pausing for lots of snuggles with the babes.

Hope your weekend was fabulous!  


  1. Birthdays are always fun to celebrate. We celebrated Ray's on Sunday! Lake houses are the best! Good luck hunting!

  2. You and your sister look so much alike! Loving that anchor coozie! ;)


I'd love to hear from you. Each & every comment is so very much appreciated!! :)
