Weekend Rewind

We had a great weekend with family and now the kids are going through withdrawals and the only thing they've been doing this fine Monday is fighting with each other. And I mean, F I G H T I N G. Pushing, screaming, pinching, hitting. All of it. Gracyn will usually come get me if Leighton is bothering her but today it's on another level. She's putting up her own fight and I'm ready for a drink.

Some of my favorites came to visit and these little girlies here had the best time hanging out. Five girls ages 6 and under. It was a good time for sure. We hung out at the house on Friday night and hit up Crown Center for a little exploring and lunch on Saturday. I had a list of things to do but everything was outdoors so we did the Mr. Potato Head exhibit, Hallmark Visitor Center and let the kids run around inside for a bit instead. Naps were very needed come Saturday afternoon so we hightailed it back home for some rest. 

Everyone left Sunday afternoon and we miss them already. I love when we can get together with our dear family - it doesn't happen nearly often enough.

My cousin snapped this gem during lunch. Leighton had just chewed up my pickle {and proceeded to spit it out...} and flipped my tray over and was mad I gave her a french fry. Gracyn was basically being force-fed a corndog because she refused to eat while sitting in her own chair. And I look pleased as punch to be doing it all. I mom so hard... ;)

Pizza for supper proved to be a winner, though! We also bribed the children with M&Ms if they'd sit nice and take pictures together before everyone hit the road on Sunday. No shame here and it worked!


  1. Such a great time!!! Thank you so much for your hospitality and laughs!! We can't wait to visit again!! Love ya!!

  2. Nothing wrong with a little M&M bribery in my book! Looks like so much fun, but I bet you parents were exhausted. You definitely seemed out numbered!
