Our weekend was the perfect blend of family, food, and relaxing! We spent Saturday at a BBQ at Eric's dad's house & I got to hang out with these cuties...
All of their hats are from Target & I just couldn't resist forcing them to sit still for a photo for me!
Ella played some tee ball, while her Daddy & Grandpa Dan manned the grill...
It was absolutely gorgeous outside & we enjoyed every minute of the sunshine.
This is where the BBQ photos end though, because I apparently enjoyed the sunshine a little too much & I think I ended up with sun poisoning. I was so sick. I laid down at 5:30 & slept til 8, woke up feeling cooled down & a bit better. But by then Ella was exhausted, so I skipped the bonfire & laid in bed watching Disney Jr. with her. I would've been upset, but we didn't have s'mores supplies & that's the only reason I usually deal with the smell of campfire, so it all worked out.
The next day, we woke up and had some breakfast pizza before heading to my parents' country house. I was back to feeling 100%, so I put on a ton of sunscreen, my pool coverup, & laid "poolside" for the afternoon - while chugging tons of water under Eric's watchful eye.
We had a BBQ with my side of the family that evening, but I was too busy to take any pictures. The food was delicious though & it's always nice to see my grandparents! I was in bed by 8:30 again, and slept like the dead.
On Monday morning, I took Ella to my alma mater's track to get some cardio in before it got too hot. She watched some cartoons while I got in two and a half miles, we were both happy campers :)
Then, we came back to my parents' to get ready for the day. When I got out of the shower, I found Ella in the dining room doing some "painting." You better believe we had a serious conversation about how we don't really paint (or color) on walls.
We ate leftovers for lunch & then headed back to Rochester. Ella wanted to ride in Grandpa's truck & go to her Aunt Britt's, so that left me with some time to get our house in order for the week ahead. I ran to Wegmans for groceries, started laundry, & unpacked. Then, I went over to my sister's to find that Ella should have packed her hard hat!
She helped her Gramps finish Aunt Britt's gate, then we headed home for some gourmet frozen pizza & baths. The perfect end to the weekend if you ask me!
