our weekend

Happy Monday! We had a really fun weekend and spent most of it outside enjoying the beautiful Spring weather. This time of year is my favorite!

On Friday night Dustin and I had a couples night out with 22 of our closest friends -- 12 couples total -- for dinner at our favorite steakhouse & bowling. Dustin and I lead a married couples group in our church and also host them in our home every month so to celebrate the end of the season we all went out. I am definitely the world's worst bowler but it was such a blast, and it was the first time Dustin and I left all 3 girls at home with my parents since Adaline was born so that felt amazing to be out just the two of us!

On Saturday we had a slow morning, made a big breakfast and relaxed around the house. One of my closest friends who is pregnant with her first baby (a girl!) stopped by to visit and then Dustin and I took the girls to the park. Then it was nap time and family photos. We had the most beautiful weather and did a lifestyle session at a local farm with the photographer we've had since we were engaged in 2011. It's always so much fun for me to plan the girls' outfits, accessories, and watch everything I envisioned for the session come to life. It was magical. We have another one coming up in June so I'm back at it, planning again and finalizing the details for that.

On Sunday we relaxed, I spent a lot of time in the hammock with Adaline, we ran a few errands, I made my favorite quiche (recipe from this cookbook) for the week ahead and then chicken enchiladas for dinner. We had our first fire of the season, made s'mores and my Dad stopped by after a motorcycle ride to visit with the girls. My parents live just a few minutes from us and I am so grateful to be able to see them all the time and for them to be so involved in our girls' lives the way mine were growing up.

May is one of our favorite months of the year for so many reasons. Adaline is being dedicated on Sunday, Mother's Day, alongside two of my closest friends' babies, who were born just days after her. We are moving Olivia into Poppy's room this month, finalizing Adaline's nursery, celebrating Olivia's 4th birthday and getting ready for the summer ahead. Sunshine and lots of park hopping and backyard dance parties are what it's all about as the warm weather arrives. I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your week!! XO
