Weekend Away

Back around Christmas time, I told Bradley that I really wanted our family to go and visit my parents for a long weekend.  We don't usually take time off to be with them, so our time there is usually 24 hours, which is wonderful, but not long enough.  Since my birthday is coming up next week, we thought it would be fun to visit them around my birthday and get to celebrate with my family.  We had a great time!  AND, to top it off, we were surprised with about 6 inches of snow on Sunday!!  Here are a few pictures of my girls enjoying the snow {I stayed inside with my 6 month old nephew}.

No boots, but plastic bags over the shoes worked just fine.

My older sister and her daughter.

My mom started the snow man construction.

Cousins with their creation.

Nini/Nana with her three granddaughters.

Not the best quality picture, but these are my awesome parents who played in the snow for about 1 1/2 hours!

On Saturday, we had a nice visit with some dear friends for breakfast.  Then, my family gave me the day off!  It was wonderful!  I mostly sat on the couch, just enjoying the company of my family, reminiscing over the past 30 years, and being spoiled.  They cooked an amazing dinner for me, and we ended it with some fantastic cheesecake.  My sister, Sherri, captured some the photo below, and other photos of the birthday celebration, so head on over to her blog to check out the festivities!

We just got back home last night, to a clean house {yay!} and I'm gearing up to finish the girls' room, hopefully by the end of this month {only 1 week left!}.  I just need a huge burst of energy and then it's on to painting, sewing, and decorating.  Can't wait to show you the reveal!


  1. I love all of the snow pictures! That picture of the three girls with the snowman is priceless!!! What a fun weekend - I'm so glad we were there!

  4. You can do it!! :)
    Love the baggie boots. haha

  5. I need to get some of those pictures! Sorry about the poor quality of some of them. I think the camera was being affected by the wet snow, and maybe some got on the lens, too. My fingers were also getting pretty frigid. Maybe next time we'll be a little more prepared for snow play! But it was so much fun regardless!! I loved the special moments in getting ready to go out as well as being out in the snow. Thanks for posting the pictures!

  6. I loved the picture of the girls with the snowman too! He's a very happy looking snowman!

  7. This looks like so much fun! I love the pictures of the kids...I remember wearing bags on my feet in the snow too :) I'm so glad you had a relaxing birthday celebration with your family!
