weekend highlights

Ugh. Monday blues, man! I am so sad that the weekend is already over! We were lucky enough to add a couple extra days to our weekend and I still feel like it flew by! We had so much fun and we are sad the fun is over! Here are some of our favorite highlights:
  • Our weekend started on Thursday! We went up north for a quick trip (like, the quickest trip ever... wish we could have stayed longer to see more people!) The stars finally aligned and we are able to meet up with my sweet Instagram friend, Kaylynne! That girl is as sweet as they come and her little Stolkton is adorable! Mia loved him so much! They never stopped holding hands as they ran around and played :)
  • We spent the night at our best friends new home and loved every minute we had with them! (Thanks for having us, Nicole! We miss you guys already!)
  • On Friday we made our way over to my in laws and Mia was SO happy when we arrived! We were looking forward to spending time with family! Eric surprised me by arranging a little ice cream date with me! I think this is the first time he's ever surprised me with a little date, just the two of us, since Mia was born! Super simple date but it meant so much to me!
  • Saturday was a special day, our nephew was baptized! We are so proud of him! Mia is so lucky to have such amazing cousins setting examples for her! I have to add- Mia was ready to strip down and jump in the font and go for a swim! She was so mad when we wouldn't let her, ha ha!
  • We spent the rest of the day eating yummy good, hanging out with family, and playing with the kids. I played freeze tag with the kids and good freakin' grief, I am OLD! and slow, ha ha! We drove home that afternoon and Mia woke up as we pulled into town. She just cried and cried because we weren't at "papa and mramma's" home anymore :( We sure are blessed with the best family!
  • Sunday was a relaxing day of church and lounging at home!

Mia looks so precious as always! That must melt your heart to hear her missing extended family as soon as she leaves them. Sign of a great, close family!

I'm glad that you guys had such a nice weekend! Love the last picture, so sweet. Sorry that Mia was sad when you guys got home though. My nieces cry/get sad whenever my parents leave. Everyone loves when grandma and grandpa show up! Haha. That is very cute and thoughtful of your husband to surprise you like that too. :-)

oh that is so sweet and sad that she was sad she wasn't grandma's house. You know something was a good time when a tantrum is involved.
Love the ice cream date =)
