This weekend was one of those wonderful, summery, get outdoors, kind of weekends. We had everything from evening strolls, to birthday parties and playtime in the backyard. I absolutely love this time of year for the long days and the gorgeous weather. Here's a snapshot of our weekend:
We started off the weekend with Ethan helping with the gardening...
And then going on an evening stroll. Wilson is so good with Ethan...gentle giant.
On Saturday, we had a beach birthday party. We were joking that all of our friends now have kids or are pregnant. Things sure have changed!
The birthday boy, Beckett! He's almost exactly one year old than Ethan. So fun to watch them grow up together.
Following the beach party, we had a fun cowgirl party...the decorations were so darling.
And the birthday girl, Gigi! She served the brownie in individual mason jars with ice cream, so clever! Might have to steal the idea! ;)
Yesterday was my brother's birthday...he would have been 29 years old. It's hard to believe he's not with us, and I am sad that Ethan will never get to know him, but I know he's with us all the time.
Sunday morning, we went for a walk and Wilson got to splash around in the creek by the house...his favorite!
And then, by far the highlight of the day was setting up Ethan's roller coaster. He LOOOOVES this thing. It's the Step2 Extreme Coaster and was a generous gift from my dad and step-mom for Christmas. The weather was finally nice enough to set it up and I have a feeling we'll be playing with this thing all summer long!
Ethan loved pushing the car back up...we need to get a helmet, STAT!
Pure joy I tell ya!
I hope you all had a great weekend!!
