Weekend Recap!

Weekend, oh glorious weekend...
Where did you go?
How quickly you're gone.
How you do it, I'll never know!


Friday was a family night
spent with all of us together,
laughing and playing outside
in the beautiful spring time weather.

On Saturday we drove to Pop and Grandma’s
to let the kids and dogs run free
We soaked up the warm sun
making our hearts fill with glee!

It was then time for a birthday party
with all of the baseball crew
There was fun had by all
That most certainly is true!

On Sunday we drove to Southlake
to celebrate Easter with our special family.
There was egg dying and some egg hunting,
Both of which were done extraordinarily!

The weekend eventually came to an end
the very same way it began
With our family all togther
It was better than anything I could have planned!

Ryan spent a large portion of Friday evening power washing our fence...please excuse the horrid patches of dormant grass trying to come back to life...Talk about
a  lot of work.
At one point I was making chili, per Trysten's request, and the boys started yelling, "Mom/Alli! Come look what Ryan did on the fence!!" This is what I found:

Seriously. The man is a.w.e.s.o.m.e. Love him.
Do you think it's any coincidence Carter and Trysten both wrote this on the sidewalk this weekend? Perfect example of kids learning by example....and a darn good one I might add!
Trysten's...
Carter's...
On Saturday, after feeding 6 boys...."The Teenager" had friends over...we loaded up the kids, the dogs, and headed over to Pop and Grandma's for some family fun time!
Heaven for little boys and dogs!
We spent Easter at my parent's with my whole family. When we pulled up to their house, this sign was in my parent's yard. My silly dad had found it recently and thought it would be funny to show the boys something from when I was in high school. To say they loved it, is putting it mildly! 
My niece, Addyson. Could you just eat her up!?
The newest addition to the Carter family, Alexis!
And the oldest granddaughter, Ashlynn. Such a sweet little girl...
Love these 2...
At one point, Ryan and I looked over and saw Trysten sit down next to my brother and do this:
It makes me so happy to see Trysten bonding with my family...
Can you tell how "excited" Austin is about still sitting at the "kid's" table? Not so much.
There was some egg dying:
Even "The Teenager" joined in on the fun!
There was egg hunting!
The dads hide the eggs every year.
Have I mentioned how handsome my husband is lately? Me likey, likey!
Inside to check out their loot! My dad puts quarters in all the eggs. Cha-ching!
Little Carter...Yes, I did take advantage of this teachable moment to talk to Carter about counting money because that's how I roll.
Our little family...if only I had made the boys wear spring colors. We tried, but they had picked out their own clothes and were so proud of themselves...sweet boys. =)
Back at home and taking advantage of every bit of sunlight possible! Scooter riding is serious business...just look at the concentration going on here.

Who's the kid?
What a fantastic weekend!
Happy Monday!!

Adam loves to power wash and did the whole outside of the house and patio last week. Loves it. But he didn't spell out that he loved me. Boo-hoo.

Kids are SUCH imitators. So awesome that you caught it on film!
Love all the Easter pics.
I feel the same way when I witness Tony's girls feeling close to my family, like T did with your brother. What is it about that? Makes me melt :)
