Weekend In the Rearview

We had a wonderful weekend filled with all kinds of celebrating. We started on Friday night with a trip to Famous Dave's. (This was partly because we knew we wouldn't want to face the crowds on Sunday with a family of five and also because I didn't want to cook! Ha! Win, win.)

Saturday we headed over to our nephew's first birthday party. It is so cool to live much closer to much of our family now and be able to celebrate and get together more often.
There was plenty of outside play time, including dandelion gathering.

His momma (and maybe daddy, too) put together an awesome monster themed party. The kids enjoyed playing with their cousins so much. Cream was asking to go back the next day!
Sunday may have been Mother's Day, but it was also this little girl's 6th birthday!! She was born on Mother's Day and it was so special to celebrate the day with her again. We kept things very low key. We went to church, had cinnamon rolls for breakfast, grilled a pizza for supper, opened gifts, made school birthday treats for the next day, and just hung out as a family.
Oh, I almost forgot!! I snuck out of the house in the morning for a jog and along the way I saw this.
It is hard to see, because I didn't want to get too close, but there was a doe and two fawns on a path just down the road from our house. I can't be sure, but the fawns seemed so fresh and new. I am hoping the one laying down was just resting. Such a neat sight on Mother's Day morning!
I hope that you were able to enjoy a great weekend as well!!
