weekend wrap-up {a day late}

 I'm a little late on my weekend recap this week because we went to Abilene, so I had to recover from my solo road trip yesterday! I was so nervous about taking Jaqs on a 3 hour trip alone because she doesn't normally sleep in the car, but she did SO WELL there and back! I was really proud of her and thankful that it was a stress-free trip for both of us.

My grandma recently made the {short-term} move from Idaho to Texas for a few months, and this was the first weekend we were able to get there to see her. Rob was busy with Spring ball, so it was just us girls this time. I was so excited for Jaqs to meet her great grandmother who she's named after :)

They were grinning at each other from first sight, and it warmed my heart to see them together!
Jaqsy girl also got some time in with G-Pop before he had to work all weekend. We ran some errands one morning, one of which was to the motorcycle shop where she picked out her next birthday present ;)
Afternoon napping at the GG's is practically non-exisistent....too much excitement! I put the girl in her stroller so she would at least rest for awhile, and she fell fast asleep. Tell me that sleeping face isn't dreamy? Ah. Angel.
We played lots of peek-a-boo with Grandma :)
 And, of course, we always have to go to Old Navy when we're home because we don't have one here. Jaqs "needed" some Summer clothes ;) She ADORES the mannequins, so we chatted with them for quite some time. She was petting and barking at the dog for the longest time then decided to hold hands with this little boy. Oh, and she also did some coloring with Grammie!
 We had Rob's grandparents and his mom over for dinner one night so Jaqs could see them, and she had her first taste of ice cream with Nanny. Oh my! Obviously she loved it and begged for more.
We did lots of playing in Grammie & G-Pop's gorgeous backyard, too!
 It was such a fun, whirlwind weekend as it always turns out to be when we're home. We loved every minute of our time with family and friends, but we were also excited to get home to daddy! Since it was Cinco de Mayo and Jaqsy's 13 month (WHAT?!) birthday, we decided to have dinner on the patio at Taco Cabana. What can we say, we're festive!

Hope your week is off to a great start!

Glad Jaqs did so well in the car for you! That's awesome! Did you ever figure out how to rig up the iPad so she could watch it?!

Looks like another fabulous weekend back home! Those are the best!

So cute! Glad you got to go home for the weekend. Saw the comment about the ipad- I saw a recommendation on a blog for a holder that straps to the seat and is only around $17. We just ordered one but haven't used it yet! Let me know if you want to know what it's called!
