Weekend Happenings

We had a pretty great weekend this past weekend. Here are 4 highlights:

1. Friday night Luke and I had a date night. We went out to dinner at Grinders because his parents had gotten us a gift card there for our anniversary. Then we went to the mall so Luke could buy some new shorts. In the whole Lebron debacle, Luke has been forced to burn and/or sell a lot of his wardrobe :-P When we were at a sports apparel store at the mall, they had these signs hanging around:

It says "Clearance LeGone apparel." Ha! We thought that was funny. And everything was around $4 or $5. I bet they are STILL having a terrible time selling it. I don't know anybody in the state of Ohio who would buy that! They better just ship that all down to Miami!

Anyway, on the way home from our date, the sky looked absolutely beautiful. It was full of pink, puffy clouds.
2. Saturday I spent most of the day at my parents' pool after a baby shower. It is always so relaxing. I think I've spent more time at the pool this year than in the past three years combined.

3. Saturday night at our church, we had a Princess Party for little girls 8 and under and their moms. There were crafts and snacks and each girl got to get her picture taken sitting on a little throne. And the main purpose of the evening was to show a new Veggie Tales movie geared toward little girls. (It will be released to the public on July 31, I believe!) I got to take pictures of the night, and it was so much fun! I think everyone had a great time, and I believe there were somewhere around 70 ladies there combined. I have to share a few pictures :-)

There were lots of sweet snacks there, most of them made by my my mother-in-law and sister-in-law...they did such a great job! I love the chocolate crowns in the cupcakes
More cute treats
We got all the little girls in their princess dresses to come on stage for a cute
And here is my cousin on stage...she pretty much headed it all up and put it all together

4. Yesterday, Sunday, was such a wonderful, relaxing day! After church I went over to my parents' for lunch. We sat around, ate, and talked for a long time. My aunt and grandma came over to spend the day with us, too. After lunch, some of us hung out in/around the pool for hours, eating melted M&Ms that had been sitting in the sun (Aunt Viv's favorite!) It was such a relaxing day, and I loved it! I think every Sunday should be spent like this, fellowshipping with friends and family.

I hope your weekend was blessed as well!
