Fun Bridal Shower!

21 May

It was Leigh’s bridal shower on Sunday and she was spoiled by family and friends! It was nice to see so many people come out and we had a great time. My new favorite cake place did not disappoint anyone at the party 🙂 Even though they forgot to put her name on the cake, the raspberry butter cream was delicious!

We posed for some friends and family photos too.

We were lucky to have another great weather weekend. On Saturday, Miss H had fun at soccer. We were laughing at them all holding hands. The coach has been so good with this 3 year old crew.

Miss H has loved soccer. It is going to be hard to break the news that classes don’t start again until September. We are debating between going back to gymnastics or starting dance class. She wants to play lacrosse (aka “the nets”) but she needs to be 4 years old for that sport.

After class on Saturday, we decided to go to Arlington to check on the headstone of Kerry’s friend. It was nice to see it was there. We got a lot of walking in and enjoyed the nice weather! Hope everyone had a great weekend 🙂

Mother’s Day Weekend

14 May

After soccer class yesterday, we decided to go check out the Manassas Air Show. The weather was perfect and we all enjoyed ourselves. Miss H loved the school bus we got to ride from the parking lot. That might have been the highlight for her.

There were lots of planes to check out on the ground and plenty flying around. It was the perfect air show for a three year old (and two parents who worry about losing said three year old in crowds) because it was not too crowded, too big or too loud. Miss H liked her seat in the helicopter.


It was a really fun air show and if they have it again next year, we will probably check it out again!

On Sunday, I was surprised with a manicure, pedicure and some really nice lotion. This combined with my hanging basket from last weekend made for a great start to the day. We enjoyed our neighborhood farmer’s market, time at the park, lunch with Mom, some open houses and a trip to Target.

It was a great Mother’s Day weekend for me and hope everyone had a great weekend too!
