From the weekend.

Friday had dinner with the girls. Margaritas, tequila, and girl talk. Fun fun!

Saturday had my cousins baby shower. It was so nice and great to see everyone! My Aunt Cindy from Florida came in town for it too!

Saturday pictures from the fire fighter never get old.

Sunday went to the zoo with my Aunt and Uncle and family visiting from Mississippi! It was a beautiful day.

Sunday had a volleyball game at night, since Kevin was working my cousin Becca filled in for him. Hadley is just the best kid. Sitting there entertaining herself, until after each game when she can bump the ball in between games.

What a busy weekend it was! I met my steps goal both days just about, and man my feet hurt! Lots of walking, lots of talking, and lots of patience. We had great weather, and it looks like the next few days are looking to be amazing too. Looking forward to a great and hopefully easy low key week!

From the weekend.

Friday the drive into the office was just beautiful!

Friday at the office was not really a fun day. Had to pack up this office that has not been used in over two years. A new person is moving into this space and I was assigned the lucky task of cleaning it up!

Friday while I was at work, Kevin started on the front yard pavers. And oh my goodness, it looks amazing!

Friday night went to my parents house to celebrate my Dad’s birthday!

Saturday spent the morning outside.

Sunday had our first indoor volleyball game. Natalie is on our team this year! Hadley had a blast playing in between games, she’s getting so good at bumping the volleyball!

Sunday night, little Miss Hadley was just exhausted. She had a busy busy weekend!

We had a good, calm but busy at times weekend. The front yard is coming along nicely, we have big plans for the landscaping and we can’t wait to see it all come together. We all had fun getting together for my Dad’s birthday, all the kids love playing together. And we had fun just talking with all the adults! Of the big kids, just Natalie came over this time. Brady had baseball, and he went to the lake to do some yard work for Grandma and Papa. Natalie was so excited to play volleyball with us. It was a fairly late game, so we were all exhausted come Sunday night. Especially Miss Hadley. It was a great weekend though!

Happy Monday! Have a fantastic week!

From the weekend.

Here are a few photos from our weekend….

Before school on Friday, Hadley looked so cute with her hair. She has been wanting to do different things each day for school and I love that! She used to be an all hair down or all hair up type of kid. Now she’s branching out with new things.

After school and work, we visited Daddy at the fire house. He picked up an extra shift so it had been two days since we had seen him! We love going to the firehouse!

After dinner, we had a movie night! We made a fort, with pillows and her favorite blanket. The movie was Yes Day, and we watched it on Netflix! I made a small candy charcuterie board for us, a few new things she’s never had before and loved. One being unicorn marshmallows, yum!

Saturday morning after her shower, she’s been really into this Kindergarten workbook we got her when she was in preschool. Doing school work on her own? Awesome.

Saturday we worked on our front yard. After living here for almost three years now, we’ve been wanting to rip out all of the shrubs and old pine trees. In the top left photo, the tall half dead tree came out, the green weird tree behind the lamp post, and lots of other things. All came out!

The before photo on the left, is a great photo of all the random things that were planted we think when the house was built. The after photo on the right is a great shot of how much you can actually see the house now!

We are obsessed with how different the house looks! It’s only been a few days, and every time we come home or leave, we still look at the house like wow look at the changes! We have more to do, but the big things are pretty much done. With the exception of the huge pine trees that are not pictured here. Those bad boys are coming out this week!

Hadley was excited she can reach the garage door pad. She still looks so little though! She stayed outside with us all day, helping, playing, etc.

On Sunday, to end the weekend we did the Heart Mini! We ran most of it, and little Miss Hadley rode her bike for the entire three miles! She was such a trooper!

The weather was so nice over the weekend, and we got so much accomplished and had fun doing it. Huge thanks to my BIL/SIL for all the help! We have so many plans on sprucing up the front yard now, can’t wait to start!

When Hadley got home from school Friday, we were taking down all of our lovely heart decor in the windows but first wanted a photo of her standing on her reading nook. She loves the reading nook, all it needs is a cute little cushion for the top part and she wants to lay on there and read books!

The big kids came over this weekend, and Hadley just loves her big brother Brady. Whenever he is around, Hadley and him just have a ball together. He is a great big brother to her, always playing and making her laugh.

Big sister Natalie has the same appetite as Hadley for the most part. For lunch on Saturday for these two was cheese sticks and watching episodes of Liv and Maddie on Netflix.

Sunday was a busy day! We started off the lenten season by going to church. Even though you have to wear a mask, they started back with the regular mass times so we went. Instead of giving something up for Lent this year, I am dedicating myself to go to church every Sunday for Lent. We haven’t been to church since the lovely C word started, I miss going and it was a nice change of pace. After church, we headed to my work (yes on a Sunday) to get some things done that couldn’t be done at home. After work, we went to the car wash which I have been to a lot lately to get all the salt/snow off my ride. Home for Miss Hadley to take one of her wonderfully long naps, cleaned the kitchen, and then to a late soccer game! We had a busy but fun weekend!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend, and your week is off to a fabulous start!
