Bounce U, Baseball, and a Baby Shower

We had another wonderful weekend!

On Saturday, Dylan had a birthday party to attend at Bounce U. It started in the morning, so the two of us headed out early. Dylan had a great time with his classmates, and I had fun running errands with my boy before and after the party. It was nice to spend some quality time with just him!

Lexie had a great time with Grant while we were away. They watched some movies, had a dance party, and Grant made a CD just for her!

That afternoon, Dylan had a baseball game. It was really hot yesterday, and the baseball field had no shade. It was definitely a scorcher! Lexie had a great time playing in the dirt, and ended up filthy. Dylan found a toad in the outfield during one of the innings. He LOVES frogs and toads, so I was really impressed that he managed to focus on the game and not pick up the toad until the inning was over! Talk about discipline!

I forgot the sunscreen again, so my mother-in-law came to the rescue! It has been so hot lately. It feels like we live in Texas!

We had a quick dinner after the game, and then Grant's parents stopped by to visit. When they left, we put the kids to bed, and then watched a movie together. It was nice to not have plans for once!

We got to sleep in this morning! Dylan and Lexie woke up just a bit before us, and cleaned Dylan's room. It was definitely nice to wake up to that! We ran some errands, and then visited Grant's family for a while before heading to a picnic at our friends' house.

We thought it was a picnic to honor their new (adorable!!!) baby girl...

...but our wonderful friends surprised us with a little baby shower! It was so nice of them. Thank you Tracy, Gary, Amber, Rex, Tina, Matt, Lindsey, and Gabe! They spoiled us with some great gifts for Nugget!

We had a lot of fun with our friends! We are so lucky to have them!

Dylan was so busy playing with his buddies that he didn't even realize what was going on until he came home and saw all the gift bags. He had a lot of fun looking through the bags!

Lexie fell asleep on the way home, so I got to relax while Grant and Dylan watched a movie before bed. It was a good way to end the day!

I am so thankful for all these wonderful weekends that we've been having with our family and friends!
