Picasso, Pet Store, Park, and a Pizza Play Date

Today’s post is brought to you by the letter “P”.  🙂

Girls…you might want to prepare yourself for some of the best art work you’ve ever seen by a one- year-old.  🙂  I opened up Bowen’s folder Thursday after school and seriously laughed out loud.  We have our very own Picasso living in our house.  Don’t you think??
Pretty sure it’s a self-portrait.  🙂

Friday, Smith came over to play with us. I took the boys to lunch, the pet store, the Halloween store, and then apologized to Shay for Smith’s nightmares later that night!  haha!  Why do they make the entrance to those places SO spooky??

There was a glass wall between the boys and the dogs, but the dogs still pretended like they were jumping up on them.  The boys LOVED it!  haha!

Even though there was a glass, this boy wanted NOTHING to do with those dogs.

Friday night, the kiddos and I came home and CRASHED!!  That might be our new normal on Fridays!!  haha!  We take super early baths and watch movies.  They absolutely love it.  (And I do too!)

Saturday morning…my friend, Sarah, and her son, Peyton, came over to our house.  We walked to a park and let the kiddos play.  Sarah’s hubby went to college with Tab and I so they’re some of our oldest friends in TX!  AND…they just moved about 5 minutes away!

These boys are just a year apart and will be TROUBLE when they’re older!!  Don’t they look like trouble?  🙂

Saturday evening we had another fun playdate with the McAnally’s.  We went to Andrea’s in our pajamas, ordered pizza, and literally pulled out EVERY SINGLE TOY the McAnally boys own!!  haha!  Wish I was kidding!!  Nixon Slaughter has a crush on Griffin.  His words…”she’s just so cute”.  hahahahaha!!  I’m not sure the feeling is mutual!  🙂  And…check out Luke in the background.  Can you tell what he’s about to do?  

This morning my crazies were looking good for church!!  Tab got back to McKinney right after we got out of church.  So…we met him for a yummy lunch.   We ended our weekend with dinner with our small group last night.  (Way too busy having fun for pics!)   Perfect ending to a great weekend!! 

Happy Monday!!  Only 15 more days until it’s “offically” FALL!  But…who’s counting?  🙂
