It was a weekend stuffed full of family, friends, yummy food and tons of fun!!! On Saturday, we had some of Lee's family over for dinner. On Sunday, my favorite cousin, Kristin (who is visiting from VA), and I did a little shopping. Then we picked Lee and Reese up and had a yummy dinner at Red Lobster. We went to my parent's house on Monday for a cook-out and tons of fun!!! Here are a few activities from Monday.
I am needing a cute picture for Reese's upcoming birthday invites. This was the best I was able to get. I love it, but wish her hair wasn't in her face. I was hoping for a cute one since Papaw has so many farm related props....guess another photo shoot might be in the near future.
This is my beautiful niece, Taylor!
Now for all the fun!!!
We played a little corn hole......
Meet Lucy....one of my Papaw's Ponies
This is how the kids decided to stay busy while Papaw fixed the flat tire (thankfully my sister was the one who got to pull them around and not me!)
My dad has picked up some fun things through the years and my mom has started digging some out. Here are a few I found fun through out the day.
This neat metal bowl found it's way home with me :) Thanks mom!!!
This is my dad's hat and lunch pail from when he worked in the cole mines when we lived in Virginia.
My dad is always buying old washing machines. He sells some and keeps a few. He actually uses them to wash his work clothes and swears they clean tons better then a more modern machines :) I just like the way they look and plan on using the one I already have.
And if the day wasn't busy enough.....after our hour and 15 minute drive home....I stayed up and made this yummy cake for Lee to take into work today.
This is one of my favorite summer time desserts. It is a white cake (strawberry is also yummy) and layered with heavy whipping cream that I whip until it is nice and fluffy and add some powdered sugar and vanilla too. I also put some fresh strawberries in the middle layer. I have also used blueberries and raspberries as well. It is so light and refreshing!!! Unfortunately I didn't even get one bite...that makes me one good wife if you ask me!
I hope you all had a great weekend as well filled with family and fun!
