Happy Monday, friends! We're gearing up for a fun week for Walker; he's doing a little STEM-based LEGO camp for four days and he's so excited about it. The boy loves him some LEGOs! 

We had a pretty slow weekend around here. Brandon played in a 36-hole golf tournament in Austin with his dad, brother and friend Jared (my friend Victoria's husband) and was gone Friday afternoon until Sunday just at lunchtime. So "The Three Musketeers" had a low-key weekend together. 

Here's what we were up to:

We had a very lazy morning at home and ran a few errands, and when Brandon got off work and was home by 11:30 a.m., we had lunch at Bread Winners as a family before Brandon and Jared left for Austin. 

The boys and I had a lazy evening, and I got into a hot bath with a glass of wine and watched the SATC marathon that E! was playing all weekend. {This bath caddy is my favorite thing, as are these reusable ice cubes!} 

And while I was in the tub, I got a text from Brandon with this picture of Jared, his car and them in a tire shop in the middle of nowhere. Apparently construction on I-35 (that is never-ending, I swear!) caused the flat and they had to convince this guy to open his shop up to help them out after trying two other places. Of course I was a nervous wreck, but thankful it was able to be fixed and they made it to Austin safely. 

Brandon played in his golf tournament all day long, and the boys and I had a little "day-o-fun." We started with a little donut date in jammies (them, not me!)...

...and The Flying Nun joined us on a quick errand... ;)

...and also at Chick-fil-A for lunch before...

...heading to our local outdoor water park! We swam in the outside pool and the indoor one, did all the slides that the boys were tall enough for, and took many trips around the lazy river. It was such a fun time! 

We ended our afternoon with snow cones and then long naps for the boys while I got a lot of stuff picked up around the house. 

Our evening was very slow. I made spaghetti for supper and then we watched a Christmas movie together before they went to bed and I watched the first episode of "American Woman," which I feel will be my new summer addiction. 

I slept horribly while Brandon was gone, so we laid low Sunday morning and hung out until Brandon got home. We all had lunch together at Chuy's, stopped by Tiff's Treats for a cookie, and then all took 2.5-hour naps, which was glorious -- especially since I hadn't slept the night before! 

I made this for supper, the boys swam a bit while I folded laundry, and Brandon and I called it an early night. 

I hope y'all have wonderful weeks!
