Great weekend spent with family

We had a pretty nice weekend. Friday night was spent at home just relaxing. Saturday morning the kids and I stayed home while Ben was at school, he had to give 2 speeches and did well on both, so that was a relief for him to get out of the way!! Then once he came home we had lunch, the potato and sausage soup recipe that was a new one and it was wonderful!! Then I made some chocolate zuchinni bread to take over to my cousins house. We went to my grandmas while Bennie went hunting, he didn't get anything but at least he saw a couple this time. It was nice to visit with grandma and grandpa, then once Ben came in it was off to my cousins house for game night. We had a great time visiting and playing games. We have all known each other since we were babies. Its so weird that we are all grown with our own families and different lifestyles now. Its also funny how you don't realize how much you miss your friends/family, til you see them. Then for me anyways it makes me wish that we got together more often. Good times.... the kids also had a fun time playing with the other kids, Emma did wonderfully, I was a little worried about how she would react to all the new faces but she smiled and laughed for everyone!!

Now today, we are going to celebrate Bennie's birthday with my moms side of the family. He is napping now, then I will wake him up and we will go over there for dinner and cake and ice cream. He is turning 33 on Wednesday!! It's weird, we are all really growing up. Time just keeps passing by, faster and faster, whether we want it to or not. We all need to cherish every moment that we can and just remember what matters most to us! Hope everyone else had a great weekend also!
