Extra long weekend!

Thursday and Friday I took off work to spend some days with Ava (and because we didn’t have anyone to watch her since school doesn’t start until tomorrow). The days off were SOOOO nice and sooooooo good for this mama’s heart. I had the BEST time just spending my days with her and getting to have fun. But as great a time as we had, it’s going to break my heart to have to go back to work in the morning. ::sigh::

I barely took any pictures just because we were busy and just enjoying ourselves. Thursday I helped a friend out by watching her little boy. He’s almost 1 so it was definitely busy around here. Ava wasn’t too jealous but when our friend first got here, she sat down in my lap and kept saying “my mama”. It was cute. Ava’s twin friends came over to play too! And their mother and I were brave and took all 4 kids to lunch!

Friday we ran errands and then Mommy got to meet up with a friend! Here’s the little lady while we were waiting:photo(5) I met Sarah back in April and I’ve been dying to meet her precious little man, Emanuel! I took my camera and for some reason it wouldn’t work so we had to settle for a blurry phone pic! :(photo(6) Oh, what a cutie this little boy is! It was so fun to catch up and just chat! I love that blogging has introduced me to people and that when we meet up, I feel like we’ve known each other forever! Ava liked them too! She wanted to go home with them instead of me!

I’m so thankful for the new friends I’ve found through blogging! A couple weeks ago, I finally got to meet Holli and we just sat and gabbed for a couple hours while the kids played. (I sadly don’t have any pics from this meet up! I will next time!)

Friday evening, Zach’s mom and grandma came into town to spend the weekend with us. We had an early birthday celebration with them and had a good time while they visited. Ava turned on the goofy-ness while they were here. They brought me a birthday cake! It traveled a long way! I was impressed it looked this good after a day of traveling! It was sooo yummy!!!IMG_0885

We had a really fun time and it was so nice to have a long weekend to visit. I know Ava loves having extra attention from her grandmas!IMG_0894

Thanks again for coming and for the birthday celebration!

We have a busy week in store! Ava starts school tomorrow! She’s in a new class but her teacher from last year has moved up so she’ll be with her again! My birthday is Wednesday so I’m sure I’ll be back later with lots of updates! Hope you all have a great week!!


  1. I'm glad you had such a nice weekend - what a great way to start your birthday week! :)

  2. What a great weekend! So glad we got to meet was a blast! I hope your birthday week is great! :)
