Weekend Wrap Wednesday ~ Farmers Market, Birthday Party, Quilt Making & A Recipe

Another fun weekend around here and this week has just been a blur so far, I'm sorry if I haven't been around much I promise to catch up soon!
Saturday was typical work day, but how is it on the weekend when I have to work the boys decide they need to be up and go early and being loud!! UGH 9am they were done and wanting to come invade my space, so I couldn't work a little extra to get extra calls done.
After work I wrapped up the boys and hit the Farmers Market to meet a friend and walk around! After that we headed to the bowling alley for some yummy food! Check out those hotdogs! Then we had to go shopping for a birthday gift and guess who fell asleep in the cart again!
Saturday afternoon was a baseball theme party! We had silly string wars, yummy food and of course a pinata! Cole had 4 days of good keys (they have a key system for behavior) so he was able to pick out a new hat. He was super excited for it!
Then we went home, Cole & I kicked the ball around. Played with bubble wands. While Caden rearranged the toys in a straight line along with a path of the books & shoes!
Sunday we headed up early to visit my parents, the boys got to run around and I was able to just sit and relax!
Sunday afternoon we headed to Racheals house to start on my newest project a quilt for some special people (they read the blog so it has to wait). Monnie bought Cole an ice cream cake for his good week so we shared with our friends. Racheal's daughter really enjoyed it!
Finally on our way home!
Yup Caden pooped out.
And of course Sunday is my bake day for the neighbors.

  11. Goodness you are one busy lady... I don't think I can complain about keeping up with my slow life after reading about your fast paced one... Maybe I should help you pack for a weekend trip.

  12. That is a BIG hotdog! I need to find a Farmer's Market this summer.
    I think we have one. Looks like some really fun times. Glad you got to relax at Mom & Dads. Cole looks so grown up in that picture in the car. Poor Cayden is always pooped out! Quilt, girl don't you have enough to do? Thanks for the recipe, these sound very good.

  16. You guys have so much fun! ;-) Love this pics of Caden sleeping-he must have been playing hard! Too cute! :-)

  17. So funny how easy he falls asleep! LOL! Little boys play hard!
    And girl, you have GOT to stop posting all these yummy recipes! My waistline is growing just LOOKING at them (and no, it has nothing to do with the pregnancy either. LOL!)

  18. Looking those little climbing monkies... they are so cute. Those hotdogs looke good and I love when Caden falls asleep in the cart, he looks adorable!
    I love the SillyString party, it looks like Cole has a girlfriend. I'm so proud of him for his good behavior and his new hat is so cute!
    Looks like they had a lot of fun with gramma & grandpa (I love how grandpa pays so much attention to Caden) and I'm so glad you got to relax - you sure did need some time to do that! Your mom's hair still looks good.
    Did Cole get to use the loam again at Rachels?
    Glad you had a nice weekend. Talk to you soon! HUGS...
