We got into town late Friday night and stayed up into the wee morning hours catching up with family and er, trying to sleep with little kids nearby. I tell ya, they are exhausting... and man, do they have lungs! I really don't know how people do it!
On Saturday I stopped by One Preppy Cookie to pick up my order for my niece's party. It is great that even though we haven't seen each other in 10 years (OMG! How is that even possible?!?) we could pick right back up where we left off. It was so nice to meet her husband, see her gorgeously decorated home and that she is happy and doing well. I so wish I lived closer. And the cookies? They looked and tasted so great! Kudos to Amy and her new company!
Next we hit up the neighborhood pool to play with our little nephew and niece and hopefully tire them out a bit. The boys played pool basketball while us girls gave swimming lessons. Our night ended with pina coladas, grilling out... nearly catching the house on fire... and prepping for the party.
The whole fam came for Madison's party on Sunday. And she was just the cutest!
I also got to visit with my bestest and her hubby Brian who were in town from far far away. We talked, drank sangria, talked, more sangria, talked, jell-o shots, talked... you get the picture and saw some fireworks too.
Unfortunately, I didn't take a lot of photos... I was too busy soaking up our visit. There is just never enough time. Visits like these are when living so far away is so hard to deal with. I just love Virginia.
