Weekend Recap...

I know it's already Monday night and I am just recapping the weekend. For not doing much I haven't felt like I have had time to post...oops. :)

On Friday night we went to my brother and sister-in-law's house for dinner. We had a great time. We played a new game, Monopoly Deal. We loved it so much we had to go get it to play Saturday night.
Saturday Mark and I layed low, we didn't do much during the day. That evening we went to his parents for dinner. We took our new game and taught them! So much fun! :)

Sunday was a big day for us! I had permission to travel from the Dr. so off to J-town we went. My brother is a senior in high school and will be graduating on Thursday so his Baccalaureate Service was Sunday evening. Not only did we travel to see that we also travel to see a BIG surprise transpire. My dad turns the big 5-0 on Wednesday and he had gone a weekend Harley ride trip with a friend, while he was gone my mom made plans for my grandpa (his dad) to fly in from CA and stay for 10 days!!!! We haven't seen my grandpa for over 8 years. Since he lives in CA and couldn't fly for a while it was hard to get to see him. My dad had NO CLUE! My mom kept the secret for over a month! If I lived at home there is no way I could have kept the secret, good thing I don't. We walked in the door....oh my!

My dad even! It was so precious. I am so glad we were able to make the trip. What a memory. Mark also got to meet my grandpa...he had never met him before! :/

My dad is 1 of 5 so some of his brothers and sister were able to make it Sunday, the rest will visit in the next few days. My grandma also came for the event. There are no "hard feelings" there so all was great! Here are a few pictures from the afternoon.

After we had lunch and spent some time together throughout the afternoon it was time to get ready for my brothers Baccalaureate.


  1. What a great surprise for your dad! Sounds like you had a busy weekend, full of family--love those weekends!

  2. Looks like a great weekend for everyone! How special that your grandpa could travel to see your Dad for a memorable birthday that nobody will forget. :)

  3. How nice that you were able to make the trip and see your grandpa!

    You look great!

  4. That's incredible that your grandpa is visiting and you all haven't seen him in 8 years! Hope you get to make it for the graduation! By the way, is that the new building at Jackson High School? If so, it looks amazing!

  5. I am a new follower of your blog and I just have to say that you are such a cute pregnant lady. haha. I love your little boys' names.


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
