Saturday we woke up bright and early to get ready for our trip to Magnolia Gardens on the San Jacinto River. We were out of the house by 7:30 a.m. I don't even get up that early to go to work!! But ssshh..don't tell anyone. We were only supposed to be there a few hours but ended up staying for 10!!! The kids (plus Boogie and David) had a blast in the river and Michele and I stayed dry and soaked up some natural vitamin D. It was a great day to be outside and I'm glad we took advantage.
|How cute are they??? Sofia and David need to learn how to smile!|
Sunday went to Grand Lux for Boogie's sister's birthday. I had never been before but it was pretty tasty. We were going to Kristin and Josh's crawfish boil afterwards so I didn't fill up like I wanted to. I will have to go back and try some more. But I will say that their Caesar Salad was DELISH!! We finally arrived to the crawfish boil and enjoyed some mudbugs and the kids had fun on the water slide Kristin had. I secretly wished the adults would have had one too...but no such luck. Maybe I should have one for Boogie's birthday in July? :) Now that's a thought!
Monday I did absolutely nothing. Well I did make a chocolate cake!! I had to put it away because I could have eaten every single last bite of it. It was SO good!!!!
I hope your weekend was as good, or better, as mine. Long weekends are good for the soul. And most importantly, I hope you took a few minutes out of your day to thank the men and women who protect this country for our freedoms. Thank you past, present and future veterans!!!
