Weekend Rewind

This past weekend was such a great one!  We began by taking a little road trip Friday afternoon to my nephew’s football game.  They live about two hours away so we grabbed the kids just a bit early from school to make the drive.

They live in a small town outside of Waco.  We loved the small town football vibes going on.  Seeing #76’s picture as we walked up was super cool!

Nix was bound and determined to get a peek at him before the game started.  Mission accomplished!

Friday Night Lights

My sister-in-law made sure the kids were set with game day shirts.  In the stands, every other row was open, ticket sales were limited, and we wore masks when we weren’t eating {or taking a picture}.

Someone caught the cheerleaders shirt when they tossed it to the stands.

Great night of football watching!

The Slaughter guys 🙂

The teeniest Slaughter 

And the whole crew!  We had such a great night cheering on #76!

Due to our own boys playing on Saturday morning we couldn’t spend the night, so we drove back after and got home around 12:30.  Not too bad, but it definitely allowed for an extra cup of coffee on Saturday morning.
Tab was home so we divided and conquered.  He at Nixon’s game while I went to Bowen’s.  My Saturday morning view.

Saturday afternoon was spent being lazy, watching football with our eyes closed because THOSE GAMES, and grilling on the patio.  It’s probably my favorite way to spend a Saturday evening.

On Sunday Nixon had baseball early that morning and then we went to our neighbors to watch the Cowboys game.  I took zero pictures to prove it, but once again-a great time was had by all!

Monday was Fair Day here in McKinney which means NO SCHOOL so we drove to a nearby park about 15 minutes outside of town for a little fresh air.

The hiking trails were calling our name.

All of my kids were a little hesitant about loading up and driving out to this park, but once we arrived they all had the best time.

There were lots of people out and about enjoying the gorgeous day.

This girl is a fan of the outdoors.

Our attempt at a group pic…afterwards Nixon asked, “Bowen, WHY were you holding that log?”.  Bowen’s response, “Because it looked cool”.   Who can argue with that?  

We hiked for about an hour and then headed to lunch.  It was a great little way to enjoy the beautiful weather we had on their day off. 

When we got back home it didn’t take long for a neighborhood meet up to occur.  This is the sign of a good school holiday.  Right?  
The neighborhood gang’s all here!

I’m so glad it’s already Friday Eve!  See you tomorrow for Friday Favorites!

    My college friend's boys play for China Springs (she actually passed away last year) and her husband is the coach (Coach Exline)! Small world!
