Long Weekend Wrap Up — Celebrating 50 Years & a Birthday Too

September 8, 2015

What a nice long weekend we had!  Friday night both our kids had plans.  Tay had a “date” with her bestie, Jenna, for dinner at Panera and Nick was meeting a friend (or was it a date?) for a movie.  Brian and I went out for pizza and ran a couple of errands that I needed to get done for the weekend.  We came home and watched Under the Dome.  Do we know how to have a fun date night or what?

The kids worked Saturday and then Saturday evening my parents, my brother and his family came here to celebrate my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary.  50 years!  Wow!  They didn’t want a big party.  They just wanted to go to dinner with all of us.  Their anniversary was in June but trying to coordinate everyone’s schedule is always a challenge (we should probably start figuring out our Christmas celebration now!) so we were just now able to get everyone together.

We went to dinner at our favorite Chinese buffet (thankfully Brian thought ahead and mentioned making a reservation — they were CRAZY busy!) and then came back to our house for some yummy cupcakes from our favorite cupcake shop.

I asked if they wanted me to take their picture and this happened…

Seriously, Charlie?

And then my mom had to give my dad a quick little lecture on how to pose for a picture…

And then she realized I took a picture of the lecture…

But she didn’t realize this happened in the next picture…

And after all the craziness (and lecturing)…

So thankful for these two.  Happy (late) Anniversary!  We love you!

Sunday morning we went to church and then spent another afternoon celebrating.  Tay’s birthday is this week so we had all her grandparents (and great-grandma who just turned 98!) down for lunch and birthday pie.  Sunday night we ran to Target so she could spend some of her birthday cash.  :)  I didn’t take a single picture of any of this!  #badblogger

I did snap this after shopping..

The girls loves her dog!

Monday was a nice, lazy day at home.  We did go out for a movie Monday afternoon.  We saw Gar Room..

Or was it War Roo…

Too funny!

Whatever you call it, it’s a GREAT movie!  Go see it!

I’m spending today getting caught up on laundry and other things around the house.  And trying not to eat left-over pie! :)
