{ a grand weekend! }

We had a jam packed weekend and loved every minute of it!

We stopped over to see Granna and Papa D on Saturday morning.  We wanted to visit them before they left for their cruise to Alaska!  Since they won't be home until after the kids start school, they gave them their back to school treats...cute beach towels!

Granna always makes cute tags for their gifts!  The towels were really cute too and will help them "soak up" the last weeks of summer.  Ha!
After we visited awhile, we headed to Johnnie's for lunch.  The kids like to sit in the Elvis Booth!
 They also like to pose with the Elvis guitar.  We looked like tourists!
Later in the afternoon we headed home to get ready for Ashlea & Chad Brown's wedding reception.  I snapped this picture just before the golf cart came to pick us up!
Don't they look cute?  :)

Our friends, Jay and Belle, definitely know how to throw a party.  Their backyard was decorated beautifully by Mac & Company (aka our friends, Mark and Ron!).  They have a gorgeous back yard every day, but it was transformed for the wedding into something out of a fairytale.  Sadly, I didn't get many pictures because it got dark quickly and my phone doesn't take good pics in the dark!

Here's the cute kids area.  They had arts and crafts for the kids to do and kid friendly food.  Our kids filled up on chicken nuggets and cheese puffs!

The Spunk Monkees played all our favorite songs from the 80s and 90s!  The girls danced and ran around all night.  Lee and I even danced!  Harrison hung out with Quinn and that didn't involve dancing. :)

Such a pretty couple!  The photographer took this picture when they pretended to leave.  So cute!
Our kids loved the sparklers.

The reception ended with a pool full of people.  
The kids thought it was great.  They all did jumps and flips off the diving board. In their clothes.  We didn't get home until 1am.  Mercy!

Sunday we had a cookout at Memaw's house where we got to see this sweet girl!  Hard to believe Cora Beth is already 8 months old.

The kids got in the pool with Cora Beth for the very first time and she did NOT like it!  Since she loves baths, I think the water must have been too cool for her.  She was pitiful!

She was sad, but she still looked cute in her swimsuit!
Candace brought bubbles.

 The girls finally had enough and Harrison had the pool to himself!
Cora Beth is scooting around these days and loves to stand up. 
 She loves it when Lee pokes his lip out for her.
Here she is watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  Candace told us she stops in her tracks when the theme song comes on TV, so she showed us.  She turned it on her phone and CB turned completely around and took the phone.  So funny!
 Lazy bones!
 They made homemade popsicles, but the homemade ice cream was WAY better!
Who can resist a ruffle booty!

A super weekend, indeed!

Cute pictures! I see they used their new towels to "soak up the rest of the summer." Cute!
