a PERFECT weekend

Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was fabulous! Ours was!

When James was selling me on the move to Texas, he often brought up how nice the weather was and how we would be able to spend SO MUCH time outside, all year around. So far, this has been so true. It's the end of April, we've been to the zoo once, Lake Austin twice and to 3 festivals.

This weekend was hands down the most PERFECT weekend we have had as a family of 3.
Saturday morning, we went to the Red Poppy Festival in neighboring Georgetown.

I love the town itself. There are some beautiful buildings that date back years and years. There are also some very cute and cozy looking homes, something we will be in the market for in the next year or so.

We arrived in time to see the parade (Connor's first) and then spent 2 hours walking from booth to booth. I love the crafts you can find at festivals. Connor had a blast and although we were out and about during nap time, he did so well. He was so nosy interested in what was going on, he ended up staying awake from 8:15 to 12:45 which is a long time for him these days!

Saturday evening, after dinner, we went to the school in our neighborhood and played on the swings. This was Connor's first swing experience and like a true kid, he loved it!

Sunday, we went to Bible Study and church, followed by a quick lunch so that Connor could nap. We had big plans for him Sunday afternoon so a nap was needed. We had plans to attend a cook out with my Moms group. It was the first time James would be meeting the other Moms and it was a family cookout so there were husbands, too. We had such a good time. It was such a nice way to end the weekend - good food and great conversation. I am looking forward to spending the summer with these ladies!

And because Connor loved the swings so much on Saturday, we took advantage of the swing set at Sara's house!

If this weekend was any indication, I think it's going to be a wonderful (but hot as well because it is Texas after-all) first summer in Texas. Hope ya'll had a great weekend, too!

  1. I'm glad he liked the swing! Hunter still likes the swing but won't stay in it for as long nowadays because he wants to get down and run around!
