Last week......

I really wanted to buzz Griffin's hair, so I finally decided to do it. It was a little shocking at first, but now we are used to it and think he looks pretty darn cute!

We went to Rocky Point with the Gibb family over the weekend. It was a lot of fun and Griffin loved playing in the sand. He's a beach bum just like his mama!
Griff likes to stand by the fridge and try to make me guess what he wants. Such a fun game!
He loves playing with these cute bowls that Rach gave me. I can't count how many times I put these back into the cupboard every day.
Griffin has become quite the baseball lover. He loves to play with balls so I bought him a bat and now he loves to hit the balls with his new bat.
Here are Wyatt, Griffy and Walker playing in the rain. It was Griffin's first time in the rain and he thought it was the funnest thing ever. I'm sad the cool weather has come and gone. It was a nice surprise that made for a great weekend!
Dusty, Jade and Tate came to visit for a week. We had so much fun hanging out with them and were sad to see them go. This is Taterbug and Jaxson hanging out at the Gibb's house. Tate is a tank! He weights just 3lbs less than Griffin and is only 6 months old. The cutest!

Adults only

On Saturday night, the adults in my family got together for an adult date night. It took months to get us all together with everyone's busy schedules, but it was well worth it! We went to Pei Wei for dinner then to our house for a game of celebrity and dessert. It was so fun to be able to laugh and talk to each other without kid distractions. I'm already looking forward to the next adult date night!

Good Weekend

It was a good weekend that ended with a great Mother's day. Friday night, Jessie and Matt had a fabulous Cinco de Mayo party with good food, great music and fun entertainment. Thanks again guys! Saturday, I went to a good neighbor/friend's baby shower. It was so fun to see our favorite next door neighbors, the Davis's, and celebrate the arrival of Debbie's first baby. He's adorable. Mother's day was very nice. Ryan got me some candles that smell SO good. Griffin slept until 10 that morning! He usually wakes up around 9, so I think he slept an extra hour for my Mother's Day gift! We went to Ryan and Jen's for dinner and I cannot rave enough about how good the food was! Jen is quite the betty and makes amazing food, mostly from scratch. We had pork roast with veggies, homemade rolls, mashed potatoes and gravy, pretzel jello, salad and homemade angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream. I know, it was AMAZING! It felt like Thanksgiving all over again. Thanks again Jen! All in all it was a great weekend.

It's true

Sprinkles cupcakes REALLY are that good!! My sisters and I went to the Grand Opening of Sprinkles yesterday and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of goodness in these $3.25 cupcakes. The cake is moist and delicious and the frosting is to die for! We tried the vanilla with vanilla frosting, vanilla with milk chocolate frosting, strawberry with strawberry frosting, peanut butter with chocolate frosting, and chocolate with vanilla frosting. They were all fabulous! My favorite was the vanilla with vanilla frosting. The frosting tasted like homemade ice cream! So, yes, it is worth a trip.






Warning: This is what happens when you come down from a sugar high!

Indulgence

The other day, Griffin and I were at Rachel's house hangin' out. I was helping Rach put together treat bags for Wyatt's birthday. One of the treats being Blow Pops. Griffin managed to grab one from the counter and peel the wrapper off allowing him to fully indulge on the sucker. He was in heaven!
