Mother's Day Weekend


Warning!!!  Warning!!!  Warning!!!
You have been warned....photo overload ahead.

We had a great weekend packed with a lot of fun.
Brad and Justin picked up crawfish to boil for us girls.  The guys ate brisket and the kiddos had chicken and hot dogs.


It was hilarious watching the kids observe a live crawfish for the first time.
They were fascinated with the little thing.



 

After that we went dirt bike riding on Tiffani and Justin's property.  We had so much fun!
 
 


 
 

 

The grass was high so we flattened a circle area to ride around on.  There is a no passing rule so you learn to go a little slower and let them get ahead of you.
 
 

Yeah that's me taking a turn.


Justin's giving me instructions on how to use the brake.  I guess I was going a little too fast!


I had so much fun I didn't want to get off of the bike.  The hubs took a turn, too.  I am respecting his wishes and not posting a photo of him.



Sharing a snack.  Looks so peaceful, right?
Not so much.  Right after I took this photo their mom had to disperse the snacks.
Neither one of them wanted the other to hold the bag.  :)  They are so much alike.
   


Mr. W loves his Uncle Brad.

 

The rays of sun coming through the clouds were so pretty.


Ms. A and Ms. P made me Rainbow bracelets.  So sweet!!!


Brad did a great job seasoning the crawfish.  It was delicious!


We had Bundtinis for dessert from Nothing Bundt Cake.



We watched movies outside on the patio on my new screen!  I love it!  It will be nice to use to watch movies around the pool.

While Mr. W was eating his hot dog and watching the movie, he kept saying this is so cool.
 

 Kevin was so generous.  He gave me and the girls money for a massage, a movie and dinner.  So sweet!  The girls were thrilled.  I had ordered bracelets from Tiffany's for the girls from both of us.  They weren't in so I gave them a picture of it.  They were so happy!!!  They can't wait to get their little blue boxes.

We took the opportunity to relax on Sunday.  I even allowed myself to take a nap.  That is a rare occasion.  It was wonderful.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Take care,

Debbie

  2. Looks like lots of fun. There is nothing better than time spent with the grands!
    I have a question about your movie, I have the screen, but the device I used to show movies is old and doesn't work with new devices. What kind of projector are you using? Thanks!

    1. Hi Sue! Thanks for stopping by. I am not sure what the brand is. I'll have to check when I get home. I bought it for $25.00 on Palais Royal's website a couple of years ago. I have been doing research on projectors and am thinking of getting the Epson VS335W WXGA 3 LCD Projector. Are you in the market for a new projector?

  3. Thanks for the info Debbie. I do think I would like another one, it's hard to keep my kids up till dark in the summer, but I know it is so much fun poolside. I can see them floating on rafts watching, wouldn't that be fun? You'll have to do a blog post if you get a new one and let us all know:-)

    1. Good morning Sue! The name of the projector we are using is Light Blast. They have some on Amazon for $45.00. It has worked okay for us when you put the screen close to the projector. However, I have visions similar to yours, floating in the pool while watching a movie. So far, we have only watched while sitting in chairs, etc. The kids love it. Last Saturday, my grandson kept saying over and over while eating, this is cool. That says a lot coming from a two year old! Have a good weekend!
