Fam Reunion and Birthday Party

Good morning!  We had a busy weekend!  Here's a little recap!

Friday night:  the three of us went to Midwood Smokehouse for an early dinner then checked on the house!  Molly Anne has gotten so much easier to go out to meals with.  She is pretty content coloring and snacking on cheerios.  We don't let her play on our phones or iPad...yet.  Never say never but I hope we don't resort to that.  It also helps that we go for the old people early bird special in the 5 o'clock hour! ;)  

Saturday morning we were up bright and early and went to Winston-Salem, NC for a family reunion at Aunt Kate's house!  I brought a few things to entertain our little friend since we were at a home that was not toddler proof.  That stressed me out a bit ;) but we survived....and stayed outside as long as possible!  Bubbles were the big hit!

Kevin's parents!

We jetted back to Charlotte about 1pm because I wanted her to have a nap in the car.  She fell asleep by the time we got out of town so she slept about an hour and a half which was good.  

When we got back, we had a birthday party at our new next door neighbor's home.  Their daughter, Greer, turned 1.  Molly Anne basically had the time of her life there.  She walked in their house and around their backyard like she owned the place.  She had already done a lap around the backyard surveying the toys before Kevin and I could say hey to everyone.  Next thing I know, she is in the mini trampoline with all the big girls.  They also have an older little girl who just turned three so they have LOTS of toys that Molly Anne fell in love with.  

And this squirt got to have cake AND a capri sun.  See what I mean?  Time of her life.  

When we got home, the drink and cake created this.  She went into Mills' condo and locked herself in there for some odd reason!  Haha!  Needless to say, she was in the bed by 7 as usual and out like a light by about 7:05!  

Kevin and I had a little date night out back and used Door Dash for the first time.  We got Bad Daddy's.  I am not a vegetarian and never get veggie burgers but their black bean burger is SO good.  Kevin built a fire, Mills hung out with us and we just chilled. 

Sunday morning we went to Elevation and after naps we played out back.  Molly Anne was more interested in carrying her beach towel around than playing with her water table.  She had fun though.  We are going to be outside ALL summer, I just know it. 

It's May 1st.  Cannot believe it!


  1. I love Molly's Anne! She has the best spirit! Love you girls in your Lilly Saturday and her sweet suit and bow Sun! Can't wait for summer!

  2. It looks like Molly Anne had the time of her life with the cake and Capri Sun! It's so great now that we can spend time outside, but I'm not looking forward to the super hot and humid days!

  3. I have been trying to remember the name of this place in Charlotte since your food tips post, and it finally came to me tonight. Have you ever used Clean Eats? You can buy freshly pre-made meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their menu switches every week so meals may repeat but not often. It's full meals with healthy portions. It's not too expensive, and a lot of my friends swear by their lunch and dinner meals. Just wanted to share!
