Weekend in Pics...

We had such a fun & busy weekend! So here is the quick recap followed by pics!!

Friday was game night - Friends all came over & we played Minute to Win It! on the Wii and a variety of other games!
Saturday we were up early & spent the first half of the day at Splashtown, followed by long naps, of course, and a movie night with pallets on the living room floor (saw The Princess & the Frog for the first time).  
Sunday we went to church then had our annual 4th of July Block party - I attempted Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes - they were good, but as a lesson don't always follow all the directions to the letter (pics will explain).  
Monday morning Michael went fishing & caught our dinner - the kids & I went to my parents' house for Mickey Mouse pancakes & to check on my daddy (he had knee surgery Friday) - then we had a quick lunch out & some play time followed by frozen yogurt. When we got home Aaron went down for a nap so Emma & I went to get pretty toes! She picked out HOT PINK of course w/ blue flowers! For dinner Michael cooked up the fish he caught that morning & we ended our long weekend with another movie night & pallets on the floor! LOVED our long weekend & all the great time with family & friends!!
Game Night - they were trying to figure out the Minute to Win It challenge! LOL
The directions on the box of ice cream cones said to use 1/4c per cone...ummmmm, I think that was too much!
b/c while some looked great...
others did not...
In the end they were tasty & all 24 were gone by the end of the night!

A few block party pics...
 Emma made Mickey Mouse pancakes (with Teta's help)!
And I have the most awesomest hubby - he went up to help Aaron through the tunnels to the slide!
At Orange Leaf - Emma's yogurt is always full of berries...and a gummy worm or two!
While Aaron is fine with just the berries - that's a bowl of blueberries!
Our Pretty Toes
And after this we settled in for dinner & Despicable Me (did you like that movie? I wasn't impressed)!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend & a great holiday!

  4. your cupcakes made me smile;0. I bet a big messy cupcake could still be yummy with a lot of frosting!!! hehehe. The kids look like they had such a blast!! You had a lot of people over, how fun!!! And love the toenails!!!

  5. =-O You didn't like Despicable Me??? I love that movie! Sounds like you had a jam packed and fun weekend! Loving the toes (I went and got my pedicure today... it's been almost 2 months!)

  6. Oh my, the kids on the swing in the star glasses are so sweet!!

  7. Looks like a fun weekend.. I don't know why the cones say to fill them up 1/4, cause that is too much. I always fill mine up very little because I like the cake to come right at the top of my cone. Those are so much fun to make though.

  8. Oh, I've been dying to try those ice cream cone cupcakes. So cute!!! Just love seeing all the photos of your little ones. I might have to get a magna doodle for little milton:)
