Hi friends! We had a fun and busy weekend for the first time in what seems like awhile.

Friday | 

Early Friday morning I hopped in my friends car and 3 of us girlfriends headed to raleigh to Umstead Resort. We had a spa day planned followed by dinner out and staying the night. We spent the whole day relaxing at the spa. I had a massage and pedicure. It was wonderful not worrying about feeding anyone, changing diapers, breaking up fights, listening to whining..I thoroughly enjoyed the day!

That evening we got dressed and headed out to dinner in Raleigh. We ate at the Capital Grille, it was wonderful! Such a yummy steak and time with girlfriends.

We were back in our hotel in our soft clothes by 9:30, and I couldn't have been happier!

Saturday | 

I enjoyed an uninterrupted nights sleep followed by a yummy brunch before we headed back to our families.

It was a much needed night away to relax and rejuvenate. I am so thankful for good babysitters and a sweet husband who let this happen!

Jack had a soccer game that morning so by the time I got home the boys were dressed and playing in the driveway. We had lunch outside before everyone taking naps!

After naps I took the boys to a birthday party where they played and played outside. The weather was gorgeous!

We had family pizza night followed by our new neighbors (our dear friends) walking down to play outside. We parents sat on the screened in porch while the 4 boys ran around playing. It was amazing and something I look forward to many more times to come over the next several months!

Sunday | 

We went to church followed by lunch and then all came home for naps!

After naps we went to ride the little train at our local rec center. This is a staple of our little town and the boys are so excited it backs up and running for the season.

We then played outside until dinner time. I didn't realize I had two real life Power Rangers living with me!

Whew, it was a busy but super fun weekend!! I love weekends like this and hope for more to come as the weather continues to warm up!
