Weekend Update.

Our weekend was filled with goodness. It was just chuck full of fun, friends, food, and family. Delightful.
Friday night we attended the benefit carnival for the lovely Abbott family. The turnout was amazing, and it was just heartwarming to see the community reach out to them. This family deserves that.
The girls from the salon put together a little booth. These ladies have such talent! The flower bows, magnet boards, and hats they made were darling. (I sold handmade cards, most of which I didn't make but collected while in a card group.....I'm telling you, I wish I had their talents!) I wish I would have gotten a picture later in the night when their were a few more salon friends there...but this will do.
Adyson LOVED having her face painted, and was broken hearted when she had to have it washed off before church. I showed them Taylie's picture before we left and told them about her illness, and I was so impressed with how much they really wanted to help. Adyson especially was really touched and took $5 of her own money to donate.
It was a proud moment for me!
Um, a hamburger cupcake! 2 of her favorite things combined!

Friday night after the carnival we had dinner with my family and played a new game, Ticket to Ride. (Have you played? We loved it!)
Saturday we met Trav's family at Willow Park to celebrate my Mother in Law's birthday. It's always fun when we get together, and the cousins enjoyed each other to the fullest. The girls sure love it when they get to see their cousins, aunts, uncles, and of course Grandma and Grandpa.
Here they are all lined up in a row checking out the animals.

We had a great time with you Kidman fam, and wish you the best Birthday Lorraine! We love you and are so grateful for you!
After the picnic, we came home and starting cooking for a bbq with a bunch of our dear friends. The night was perfect with the kids all playing together, and the adults sitting under candlelight with the breeze blowing and eating delicious food. One of those nights where you can't help but be happy with your life.
In fact, I'd say the whole weekend was like that. Trav's starting to feel better, the weather is cooling, our kids are healthy and so happy, and we have friends and family everywhere we turn.
Life is Good.
Here's hoping your weekend was fabulous too!

Ticket to Ride is great. Some friends of ours had it in Grenada so we played it alot. Be careful it can get a little intense :) The ladies are beautiful as always.
