Weekend Review

We started our weekend early on Friday.  Ben was off from work most of the day and we were able to get a lot of things done around the house.  The snow this winter ruined our yard, so Ben planted new grass seed and hopefully we will have new grass in a few weeks.

Elizabeth and I hit up Harris Teeter and did our weekly shopping on Friday afternoon.  It was nice to get it out of the way and have the weekend to spend together enjoying our free time.

Friday evening, before our cocktails, Ben cooked up a few tasty treats and I mixed up a special dessert.
 Ben made some break and make cookies

 Elizabeth loved these!

 Then Ben made two dozen banana muffins

 Don't these look fabulous?!

 After Ben was done in the kitchen, I made strawberry shortcake trifles.

 After all that, we made cocktails and watched TV

 Saturday morning, I was wide awake at 6am 
so I headed out for a 5K around the neighborhood.
I was done working out before breakfast 
and when I got home found my baby in the living room with Ben and Elizabeth

We spent the rest of Saturday with Ben's parents.  
They came into town in the afternoon and we enjoyed grilling steaks Saturday night with them and enjoying dessert and wine and relaxing once the girls went to bed.

 Selfie on the way to Church on Sunday morning
(We are still in the driveway, so don't worry, Ben wasn't driving yet)

 When we came back from Church, we had Ben's parents over for a large breakfast buffet.
Hash browns, eggs, pancakes, and bacon.  

 After we were done eating, Ben fed Caroline :)

 And then we gave Caroline her cup.
She is learning to drink out of a cup. :)

 She loves trying!
 After breakfast, Ben's parents headed back to Pennsylvania.

 Sunday afternoon, I took the girls to the playground while Ben went to play tennis.

Elizabeth LOVES balancing right now.

Sunday night, we put the girls down early and grilled hotdogs for dinner.
We sat on the deck for an hour, it was great!

We had a great weekend and we hope you did too!
