The Perfect Weekend!

We had a great time this past Labor Day weekend at my parent's house! As most of you know, my dad is recovering from his second surgery to remove melanomas from his head. He has a rather large bandage on his head and can't fully turn it yet but he's doing well and it was so nice to see him and my mom!

Me with my dad.

I warned the girls before visiting that they needed to be on their best behavior, not to "annoy granddaddy" and to watch out for his big boo-boo. Well, they are 3 and 5 so you know how that goes;) But they did pretty good and Harper asked my dad why he always has boo-boos on his head;( and he said hopefully this will be the last "boo-boo" he has-we hope so too!!

Sunday, we were invited over to my parent's neighbors house (George and Merlyn) for a brunch! Merlyn is an awesome cook and made us french toast, egg and sausage casserole, cheese grits, bacon, hash browns and mimosas!

Here they are with my mom getting everything ready- the girls were in heaven!

George and Merlyn have a beautiful view of the water, with windows all around and we thought this would be a cute picture of Ainsley on the other side-again, trying to get this kid to play on his knees!! He LOVED looking out of these big windows!
Me and my bub:)
After brunch, the girls took one last dip in the pool for the season, the weather couldn't have been any better!
Ainsley took this picture of Harper-not bad- just a tad out of focus;)

Later on Sunday we got ready for college football! My dad supports East Carolina, of course but his true loyalty is with Virginia Tech, he's a former Hokie! {As I type this, the Hokies are playing and they are not doing good- so sorry dad!!}

We were ready in our purple and gold to watch ECU play Tulsa! ECU ended up winning in the last 3 seconds of the game with a hail mary pass!! Everyone was screaming and cheering and poor Bennett got so upset;(
Okay, well this was before they won! No tears here!

So now were back to the grind and we've got a packed week, actually a packed couple of months! Miss Ainsley has got quite the schedule with school, dance, soccer, piano and The Girl Scout Daisies along with Bennett and all his therapies and then Miss Harper starts preschool! Needless to say, we're all very busy!

Thanks mom and dad for a great weekend!!

  7. Bennett is so cute! We are working on kneeling too. Owen still scoots on his bottom and won't crawl although I have been able to get him rocking on his knees lately. Doesn't keep him from getting into the kitchen cabinets though!
    Great photos of your dad. I am glad he is doing well. We had the game on too and my husband wasn't thrilled with how Tulsa played but he is more of an OU fan anyway. Glad you all enjoyed the game! :)
