What Memories Are Made Of

This weekend was filled to the brim full of family, friends and fun! Indeed, one of those weekends where memories are made!

On Friday evening, I hosted a BBQ at my crib for a bunch of ladies from my mommy-board! There are about 100 women on my board, and we all try to meet up "in real life" whenever possible! Friday, we had a lady from Texas, a lady from Iowa and a lady from Massachusetts, and their families!!!

This is a picture of my best friend Melissa, her son Elijah, and Bennett and I.

Saturday night, Ace's sister bought us tickets to the Jason Mraz concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion for Ace's birthday. It started out the perfect night for an outdoor concert - and the the heavens opened up and we got DRENCHED!!!!

He we are trying in vain to stay dry under our picnic blanket! That lasted all of 10 minutes...

And here we are post-downpour, using our ponchos as make-shift green houses to stay warm! It never felt so good to get home and peel off the wet clothes!

But it was so worth it - Jason Mraz was awesome and sooooo talented!!!!

Sunday, we went with Ace's family to Medieval Times to celebrate Ace's 31st birthday (yep, old dude!) and my sister-in-law's birthday as well.

Both boys really loved it! Bennett was clapping and cheering the whole time! Carter was pretend sword fighting in the aisle!

And a bonus picture of Bennett giggling with his uncle!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. I am so glad you had such a wonderful and memory making weekend. They help to make it through those rough spots we all seem to be dealing with. Just remember to try and make a memory everyday and life will be so much sweeter. Even if its just looking into your little Angels eyes or sharing a soft passionate kiss with Ace. That is what life is all about!

  2. I agree with Renee! I loved looking at all of your pictures! You are so blessed to have such a loving family and so many opportunities to get out and do nice things. We lead (busy) but wonderful lives!
