This Weekend....Family Time

Do any of you ever feel busy? Too busy? Overwhelmingly busy? 
I do, all the time. I just try to do too much. Either that or I stink at time management. 

But this weekend was different because even though I felt busy, I actually made time for family (besides Russell and Sophia). 


Saturday night, my sisters and I went to On the Border and had patio time. It was the perfect evening for patio time. It was so relaxing. I even had a chauffeur (Russell volunteered to drop me off and pick me up). So sweet!

I love when we have girl talk. An apparently all of our men are really interested in what we talk about because they quiz us when we get home.
Topics we discussed:

1. Hunger Games movie
2. Work
3. School (our kids)
4. Peeta (apparently the movie version of Peeta isn't what we pictured in our heads while reading the book, I haven't seen the movie yet, but Amy googled some pics of him and I agree)

That's about it....nothing too exciting but still fun nonetheless. 


The crazy thing is, I live 5 minutes from my parents, but hardly ever see them. I need to do better at dropping by but I'm usually so "on-the-go" trying to check things off my list that I run out of time. So on Sunday, I decided to actually add them to the list because they haven't seen Sophia in a while. 

So before we did our errands, we dropped by to say hello, unannounced. They were outside working in the yard (they're always doing something too, must be where I get it). They were super happy to see us (I mean Sophia...who are we kidding??? That's who they really wanted to see). 

And Sophia was super excited to see them, although a little shy. But when it was time to leave to run errands, Sophia didn't want to leave. In fact, she said "I want to stay here forever". 

So we left her there and Russell and I ran our errands.

Here's what Sophia got to do while we were gone. My mom was kind enough to take pics of it (thanks mom!!!).

She got to help Paw-Paw plant his garden.

Of course that's not all that she did. Apparently, she colored, read books, had snacks....I can't even remember what all she did but it was a lot for being gone for an hour (apparently she has the go-go-go gene). 
But I'm glad she got to spend some quality time with her Nana and Paw-Paw (and she got to see her Aunts on Sat.). She loves all of them! 
And I do too!
What a great weekend!
