Our Weekend

 This past weekend was a FUN one!  When Tab got his schedule back in the summer, he and Andrew planned a quick little boys’ trip around the UCLA/Oklahoma game.  The game was being held in California and it happened to fall on a weekend the boys weren’t missing any baseball tournaments.  So, it was decided BOYS’ WEEKEND was on!

Their flights left super early on Friday morning but then they had the whole day to enjoy all that sunny California had to offer.

The Santa Monica Pier was on the to-do list.

 Bowen was STOKED to be included in this getaway!

 I’d say they had lunch with a VIEW…wouldn’t you?!

At this moment, I’d just eaten random leftovers from my refrigerator for lunch and the guys sent Shay and I pictures of their food.  OH MY GOODNESS!  I was so jealous!  I’m talking I had ham rolled up in a piece of cheese, leftover roasted okra, and some nuts.  THAT was my lunch and they sent REALLY good pics of lobster, seafood pasta, etc.

Now I know they must have done something in between lunch and the pool but Tab didn’t take pictures of whatever it was.  Nixon mentioned they drove by the Hollywood sign?  At some point they made it into the hot tub with Mr. Lyndon before dinner and bed.

Meanwhile, Saturday morning the girls and I were becoming Georgia Bulldog fans for life!  This was the sweetest!

Ebby Lee had a volleyball game and then we made our way around town running errands.  First stop was Edith’s for a super girly lunch complete with this dessert which she mentioned tasted just like hard boiled eggs.  #excusemewhat

Who knew Britty would bypass her macaroni and cheese for my onion soup?

We managed to get a little shopping in.  At one point, Britt was mad we wouldn’t let her hold something breakable so she proceeded to show a little attitude but when she caught us looking-she BURST into hysterical laughter.

 At the same time the boys were getting geared up for the big game at the Rose Bowl!

Hands-down this was my boys favorite part of the entire trip!

They had so much fun throwing the ball around before the game started.

Just like that…the weekend was over, boys made it home, we all got ready for school the next day.

Hope you had a great weekend as well!

    I love the differences in weekends from fun and busy to relax and low key. Looks like everyone had a great time!
