Beautiful weekend, embarrassing moments and another 10 year reunion...

We were on a walk last night and I asked Jimmy how sometimes the weekends go by SO fast but they seem like when you are living them, they are so long.  Weird how that happens, right?

The weather was just BEAUTIFUL in Kansas City this weekend and we soaked up as much as we could of it.  Went to a fun STA tailgate on Friday night where Charlie had lots and lots of fun with lots of other friends and kids.

I also had a "remember that one time?" moment.  Do you ever have those?

Long story short, it said "bring a snack to share" to this "tailgate" on Friday night that was from 4:45-7:00.  I was all stressed out because of course I had no time to make anything and had to be that person again that brings something store bought - I think I'm just going to have to get used to that.  In my mind, I was thinking tailgate in between that time meant that it would be like burgers, hot dogs, whatever.  So I just grabbed a tub of macaroni salad.  Not the most delicious or even something that Jimmy and I like, but I thought others would.  We get there and there are just like appetizers.  Um, how embarrassing.  (Especially since I didn't even have a spoon)  But Jimmy INSISTED that we put it out.  Pretty much so he could make fun of me.  Sweet, right?  Well it sat there awkwardly all night.  I kept staring at it so embarrassed and finally snuck it back into the bottom of the stroller.

Jimmy did a big "told you so" because he thought it was SO weird that I bought that.  Guess what?  It made sense at the time to me - but was pretty mortifying...and hilarious.

I'm pretty sure Jimmy will talk about that years from now - proving that he's right.

Anyways, Saturday we ran some errands in the morning and had a nice visit with my grandparents.  

Then Charlie's teachers from his old school came over to visit (so sweet) and we had a nice time hanging out with them.  Then it was off to the reunion.  We got one picture of the night.  

It was pretty fun - we both lost our voices.

Seems like my parents and sister had a good time hanging out with Charlie too!!

And then...Jimmy had a fun morning.  Haha.  As always.  He likes to have a little too much fun sometimes...and every once and a while I like to rub it in his face a bit.  We went to a delicious post-birthday brunch for me and my cousin, Brett, with my family at Nick and Jake's and stuffed ourselves silly. 

Went to a new park on Sunday afternoon with Charlie and played lots in the garage while I vacuumed our gross van - he didn't really take the gate thing seriously.  But he was sure cute.

Then got some time with my man watching the movie Hitch.  Which for some reason, we both like.  With NEVER happens.

I love these pictures of me and my little man + my tired husband, which I'm going to say count as Mommy and Me, right?
