Happy Monday! We had a full, yet fun weekend and I'm pretty sure I need just one more day until I'm ready to hit the ground running this week. ;) 

Here's what we were up to: 

My parents came up {and my aunt came over} to see us and celebrate my Mom's birthday with us. It was so, so good to see my family and spend time with them. And Walker just loved having his Foxy and Papa here!

I made chicken spaghetti, Greek salad and garlic bread, and had Brandon pick up a Berry Chantilly Cake from Whole Foods on his way home from work. If you've never tried that cake, it's delicious! 

We all ate supper together, enjoyed catching up, got the boys ready for bed, and my parents read Walker a couple of bedtime stories before we all called it a night.

After my parents came to say their goodbyes and head down to Waco for the Baylor game, we had a really lazy afternoon. I caught a quick nap on the couch while the boys took a nap, and then we met my sweet friend Liz and her family for an early dinner, and then let the kiddos play in the little splash pad next to the restaurant. {Only in Texas can you still run around in a splash pad in late September! Ha!} 

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that Liz and I used to work together. Her youngest daughter, Peyton, and Walker were born two days apart and the same hospital and by the same doctor. If they don't get married then, well, what is life!? ;) 

After dinner, we came home and got the boys to bed, then sat out on the patio with a glass of wine and watched a big ol' Texas thunderstorm start to roll in. Once it hit, we quickly made our way indoors and watched the Baylor game on TV. {Sic 'Em, Bears!} Since the game had a rain delay, it didn't end until after 11 p.m., which is way too late for this old lady, so I was dragging Sunday morning! 

We woke up to rain pouring down, but we braved it and went to church anyway...and I'm glad we did because it was an awesome sermon! We got a ton of things picked up around the house and watched football on TV all afternoon. I'm thankful for a day of rest, but I would definitely enjoy another one! ;)
