Wow this weekend went by fast! Too fast! Isn't that just how weekends go though? You wait all week long for the weekend and then it just flies by and next thing you know, it's Monday...boo.
We had such a fun weekend this past weekend! On Friday, we went to dinner with my friend and her husband and then went and saw Batman with my other friend and her husband. I liked the movie, but it seemed too evil for too long! Maybe it's because I prefer light hearted movies like comedies or romance. Yep, I'm such a girl!
On Saturday, we slept in (ahhh my favorite part of the weekend), took our time getting ready and headed off to Houston for a family reunion! Andrew's dad's side of his family all got together for a mini-reunion and a BBQ and we had a lot of fun! Andrew's aunt and uncle own a big ranch so we definitely had a "country stlye" party. They had the normal fixin's for BBQ like baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad, etc and then amazing meat like pulled pork, roast chicken, and ribs :) His aunt also made blackberry cobbler and apple dumplings! Needless to say, I'll be happy to be back at the gym this week just to feel "lighter" again :) The night was full of laughs, a few "hay rides" (the kids went on rides in their huge truck), catch up time, and of course mosquitoes! Andrew and I spent the night with a bunch of the cousins including my sister in law and her boyfriend and it was nice just to be around family. I had a nice long catch up time with his aunt (we love just visiting and catching up on life!) and the kids played cards games, poker, and pool.
The kids goin' for a ride! My cute hubby was waving at me! And that's my father in law's head (I would have cropped it, but then you wouldn't be able to see the cool truck!)

Overall it really was a great weekend! At first I dreaded another Houston trip, solely because it means a good amount of driving and less time to be at home. But it was so nice to visit with family, get loved on, and relax at his aunt and uncle's. Weekends like that make us want to live there so we can visit more and drive less, but then when we get home, we realize just how much we love the little world we have outside of Houston and how much more peaceful it is then the city. Regardless, wherever God wants us we will be, so it looks like we're staying put for now! Okay, I know that was a long weekend catch up, but it was full of memories and fun!
