Weekend Wrap-Up

Monday, April 20, 2015

So! We had just about an entire weekend's worth of activities crammed into Friday alone, and if we're friends on Facebook with me you've probably already seen eighty percent of these pictures, but I'm not going to let a little thing like that stop me from throwing them all up here and calling it a post!

First we had Phoebe's little party at home, complete with balloons, presents, and birthday cake for breakfast for everyone.

Then we were off to the zoo!

Phoebe loved it - especially the elephants, which she had been looking forward to all morning. On the way home she sat in her carseat and listed all the animals she had seen, while everyone else fell asleep!

THEN there was the dance that evening, and it was wonderful! 
The Flint staff and volunteers that set it all up did an A.MAZING job, and ran with the Great Gatsby theme so beautifully. Just look at that table! Each one had a gold letter, so that all together they spelled out Gatsby. Swoon! Also, homemade petit fours. And a chocolate fountain. I rest my case.

Our darlings looked adorable and had a blast, and I couldn't stop taking pictures of them to save my life.

 We got home super late and crashed, and then I got up super EARLY and went straight to the school and locked myself in the art room to work on costumes all day. I got a lot done, but I missed my babies! Every year right before the play I feel like Aaron and I switch roles for a minute and he's the one solo parenting while I'm off working ridiculous hours. I definitely prefer my regular Mrs. Coach role! I worked for twelve hours and then couldn't go home because of the crazy storm. Luckily my mom lives really close to the school, so I got to go to her house (and not wait out the storm in the spooky empty building!) and have dinner. It was a wonderful little reprieve from grown-upping!

After church on Sunday Aaron took one of our guys to a college try-out a few hours away and I spent the afternoon in a blur of ALL the weekend chores condensed into a few hours. I also drank my first-ever (sugar free) Red Bull, which I think is why I did all my regular chores and gave the girls mani-pedis, baked an extra batch of cookies, cooked two dinners in advance because I'll most likely be working late on costumes every night this week and people will still need to eat or whatever, and cleaned out the refrigerator. Probably I shouldn't drink that again if I don't want to unleash the apocalypse or something!



  1. It looks like you had a fun and busy weekend! I love all the pictures from the formal. It looks so good! Have a great week!

  2. How fun! I like those balloons hanging above the ceiling, and the chocolate fondue of course! :)

    Enjoy the rest of the week.

  3. It really amazes me how much love you give to everyone near you! You guys have the coolest ¨home¨ ever!
