My kiddos don’t have school today…so, it’s a Monday that feels like what? Not a Saturday because they can’t stay up late since it’s a school night…and not a Sunday because we didn’t go to church. I don’t know what it feels like…but it’s a fun day when we don’t really have to do anything at all. Here’s hoping you have a fun day too!
Here’s a little look at our weekend…
Friday night means date night…for six. 😉
Smith had a flag football game on Saturday and my friend Brooke brought this car for her daughter. Well, when her daughter wasn’t in it, Miss Madeley crawled right up inside and was ready to go. Good thing big sister Ashby was nearby!
(And side note: my sweet friend Brooke is also adopting a little girl from China! Isn’t that so cool?!?! They are expected to travel around March…and we cannot wait to meet this newest friend. I just love, love, love when people step out on faith and adopt. We could not be happier for Brooke and her hubby who will now also have a party of six 😉 ).
So, after football, we headed to one of our very favorite events of the year…Southlake’s Oktoberfest! (That’s the little town by my parents’ house.) We look forward to this ALL YEAR LONG!
We walked up and of course, the children all ran over and mobbed Papa Jay. He’s always the rock star of the group ;).
Oktoberfesting with Lovie too! We laughed because it looked like my mom was choking Ashby but she was really just getting her chin high enough for the selfie 😉 .
Root beer, check!
Oh how we love Oktobefest! Funny enough, a sweet member of Southlake’s Chamber of Commerce stopped me and thanked me for promoting their little town. Ha! I do love me some Southlake and do tend to talk about it a lot. I thanked them for always giving my family a happy little way to spend a Saturday. If you’re a local, you should head there any weekend because it’s just a fun place to be!
Chasing bubbles in the street. Sometimes, I feel like having kids is like herding cats. Just an observation I have sometimes 🙂 .
Mom and me. We both had on plaid shirts and were wearing the same necklaces. Her’s says Lovie, mine says Red Sox. Love her so much!
We had a party of 11 for dinner, so we decided it would be easier to go to one of Southlake’s restaurants for dinner and then do dessert on the street. Madeley was pumped that she could color on the table!
This sweet girl loves Oktoberfest as much as her mama!
My sweet little nephew.
Two things: we all fight over who gets to hold Samuel. And my dad taught me how to draw bubble letters when I was little and as you can see, he was teaching Ashby too 😉 .
This girl. Love her so much.
Papa Jay brought Samuel over to talk to Madeley.
After dinner, we hit the streets again…and this girl picked a Nutella crepe for dessert.
Oktoberfest with my peeps.
They were in line to play and I asked to take their picture. Kensington has posing down…Ashby does not. Ha!
All the fun!
Look at all three of them holding on to each other :).
My little brother and me.
My favorite date.
I love when we do things that exert so much energy!
All smiles as she pulls her little sister down behind her.
Do you think they like each other?
This only shows a quarter of Oktoberfest. It’s HUGE!
Holding shoes and waiting for kids.
Everyone had something painted on them! A cupcake, a Captain America symbol and a butterfly.
A sweet way to end our night.
We heart Oktoberfest. And Southlake, TX. And a fun weekend with family.
