Labor Day Weekend

I was a pretty big slacker this weekend when it came to taking pictures, but at least I am blogging about it.

We went to Lexington to visit with my family, but I thought that we would never make it thanks to all of the other travelers.  When we finally got there, we went straight to my sister's house because my parents were giving the kids new beds, and they were at her house.  They were thrilled!

Saturday started with a little doughnut/ yard selling date for me and Eric.  Don't judge, it's the small things in life.  Ha! After a quick lunch, we started getting ready for my cousin's wedding and spent the evening celebrating the new marriage with family.  It had been a very long time since I had seen a lot of my family, so it was good to catch up with everyone. After the wedding, my parents watched the kids so that Eric and I could spend the evening catching up with my sister and her hubby.

We kicked off Sunday with another round of doughnuts.  After a lazy morning, we got ready for the day and ate a delicious lunch of pot roast!  My mom and I ran to the mall and Wal-Mart, and then it was a time for Eli's party.  My sister graciously threw him a party with family and friends who can't always travel to Bowling Green.  He was so thrilled, and it blessed my heart that she thought of him enough to do that and that my brother and his wife cut their camping trip short to come.

After the Paw Patrol Party,  we went out to dinner with my siblings and their spouses.  It was so nice to eat out without a kid choking, or climbing all over the seat ,or terrorizing a restaurant.  We ended the night with dessert at Applebee's because a Blondie is pretty much the best treat ever!

We wrapped up the weekend with another lazy start to the day and a quick lunch before loading up and hitting the road to beat the other travelers.  It was a wonderful and relaxing way to wrap up the summer and welcome my favorite season...fall!!!
