Busy Bees

   You know those weekends that you never want to end. This weekend was one of those weekends. It was the first weekend that we didn't have to wake up at dawn on Saturday to get Ethan off  to a Speech tournament.  We slept in on Saturday and it was wonderful.
   We kicked off our weekend by attending an awesome Birthday party for a wonderful young man. I am talking Awesome Party, one that I am sure Noah, the birthday boy, will never forget.  His parents went above and beyond and it was as much fun for us grown ups as it was for the kids.  They rode go-carts, a Drag Racing simulator. That thing was amazing, the kids loved it.  They rode bumper cars, thank God it was a hot day so the cool water felt refreshing. They played arcade games and were so sweet to each other. The kids were sharing their tickets and everything. Noah hit the jackpot and won over 8000 tickets. Talk about a grand birthday.  Cameron spent the entire weekend with Noah and they had a blast.

Ready, Set, GO
Nate even got in on the fun! Thank you Hughes family!!! What a treat!

   We all had a wonderful time celebrating Noah on his special day!
    Saturday,  Ethan went 4 Wheeling with friends.  When Ethan can drive something he is a happy fella. Madi and I got to play at home and spend some time cuddling, perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Nathan had a cage fight to attend (more on that in a future post),so we were on our own to get into mischief. Madi colored a pillowcase with bright markers, we watched movies and had girl time.
   Sunday we spent the day with friends at a swimming  hole. Cameron was still with the Hughes family for a continued weekend of fun! The nature reserve we went to was so beautiful and quiet.
Butterflies, crawdads, and snakes were our only company.   Good food and great friends.
 The kids played, Madi kept squirting Madison and Ethan with her noodle, and then she would swim away

 Madi enjoyed playing with Barbie's in the water
 This lovely paid me a visit and I was able to snap a pic.

No meat for me, but the veggies were amazing.

 Beautiful Eddie had a great time
 Out of the water for a while while the Copperhead did his thing.
 I don't think he wanted to share his swimming hole
All sorts of pretty things growing about.
There are weekends when it is wonderful doing nothing, but sometimes a weekend full of fun is just what is needed to kick off another work week.  I hope your weekend was delightful and full of fun too.  I am linking up with  Bits of Splendor  today, come on over and pay her a visit...her blog is lovely!
