Fabulous Weekend

You know those great weekends that you never want to end?
The ones that you want the time to stop. The moments you wish you would last forever?
This weekend was full of weekends like that.
Hubby and I took the kids back home for a long extended weekend with friends and family.
It was non-stop adventure, but I wouldn't change it for the world.

Friday: We got to PA around lunchtime. We met with the groom and one of the groomsman for lunch. They then went golfing and I went out to my Grandfather's house to hang with the kids. I chatted with him on the porch swing while the kids played. I love my time with him. After I picked Hubby up from golfing (who was wasted from shots cuz he lost). We dropped the kids off at my Mother-in-laws so they could spend the evening with their Grandma. They had a blast playing outside, taking a walk, and eating chocolate chip pancakes. Hubby went to the rehearsal & dinner. I went out to my parents and just spent time with my Mom & Dad. I enjoyed the quiet time outside in the gazebo by the pond. So quiet and relaxing. Then, my Mom and I went out to pick up the kids. When I got back, I got to spend time with an old high school friend, Jasmine, and my family laughing around the campfire.

Saturday: We got up, had a delicious breakfast made by my father. (I have now named their house as Brookside Bed & Breakfast). We slept good, ate well, and the kids had so much fun playing by the pond. Hubby & Noah caught 2 tadpoles and a salamander for his tadpole container. We are going to watch them grow and change! Hubby and I then got ready for his best friend's wedding and then headed out.

The wedding was beautiful and the reception was fun. Hubby had a blast with old friends, and we had a great time together with the kids.

Sunday: We got up, had another delicious breakfast made by my father, and hung out with family. Noah was up by 9 and was catching more bugs. He found this beautiful Luna Moth.

He amazes me with his eye for insects. He finds things that we pass by all the time because we are too busy to look for. My brother and his wife smoked a pork loin, my mom made sides, and we ate together on my Mom & Dad's front porch. Wonderful. The only word to describe it.
Now I am home and back to the normal routine of life. Laundry, picking up toys, and dishes. All my favorites.
